By incorporating a Renewable Energy System, you can dramatically decrease your environmental carbon footprint and reduce your dependency on fossil fuel, coal or natural gas. Plus, generous incentives are now available that make solar more affordable than ever. Let Jolma Electric show you how solar can work for you.
What is solar? The ability to take the sun's energy and create electricity. Each panel has cells and within those cells are Silicon crystals. These Silicon crystals have the electron potential to create electricity.
Monocrystalline vs Polycrystalline? In a monocrystalline solar panel each cell has only one of those Silicon crystals which allows more room for the electrons to move. By doing which allows the panel as a whole to be more efficient and cost effective. In a polycrystalline solar panel each cell has multiple Silicon crystals. By putting more than one Silicon crystal in the a single cell it reduces the area in which the electrons can move. Ultimately making it less efficient in generating electricity
What is a grid tie system vs battery bank system? When you have solar installed on your house or in your field and you are still connected to your utility, that is a grid tie system. This type of system is the most common in solar installations. Some utilities have incentives for homeowners that install PV arrays on their house that could lower the price of installation and/or pay you back for excess electricity generated.

Non-incentivized solar through net metering is one of our “own your own” solar options and is available to residential and business customers within our service areas. When the system is non-incentivized, you retain the renewable attributes of renewable energy you produce and you may register the Renewable Energy Credits (RECs) and/or claim that you produce and use renewable energy from your solar system. Owning your own system provides the benefit from net metering, which allows you to “credit back” excess generation onto your bill to ensure you receive the full value of all your generation. If excess energy generation exceeds energy consumption you will receive payment for the excess.

Federal incentive for residential and commercial of 26%. If you have a building that has both residential and commercial keep in mind you can only get 26% incentive. You are responsible for allocating how much of the system goes to each part of the building. For example if you think the building is 50/50 then the incentive would give the residential side 13% and the commercial side 13% as well. Federal business incentive of 26% Strictly for commercial use only
