Cape Coral Solar
Cape Coral has always been a ground breaker. From the very start when the area was developed by the Gulf American Land Corporation and financed without the usual involvement from banks and institutional investors. That trend continued with it being the first municipality in the country to use large scale reverse osmosis for its water. You can see the same forward thinking approach in Cape Coral's early adoption of the 4.9G Hz pre-WiMax. The Cape has always been a place apart; both a waterfront wonderland very much in touch with its role in the natural world and an early adopter of new technology and infrastructure. No wonder then that solar has such a big role to play in the lives of Cape Coral dwellers. Solar technology is undoubtedly the way forward ad the world turns its back on polluting fossil fuels and Florida is perfectly placed to take advantage of this clean, sustainable, and affordable power source.
Most early solar powered systems were actually what are called thermal systems because they relied on the heat of the sun to warm water flowed through dark, heat absorbing thermal units. That's still very much an option in Cape Coral and a clean, green, and cost effective way of warming your water, but there's more potential to solar power today than warming water. PV – photovoltaic solar power isn't new, and from pool pumps to night lights you've probably got independent solar powered items that perform their job without adding to your fuel bills. The real benefits however, come when stop buying ad hoc solar items and instead equip your entire building to act as a miniature power station, able to deliver power how you want it, where you want it.
It's Florida so you get hot and sweaty and reach for the AC remote. Actually you reach for it most days and it shows when your utility bill comes in so what if you could use that same sunshine that's getting you hot and sweaty to cool you down and not have to pay for the power. That's the promise of residential PV solar. Solar panels on your roof, your garage, or any number of locations around your property can cut your fuel bills saving your bucks and the planet in one go. A professional solar power facility in your house increases its resale value too and we know how to install discrete integrated solar units that won't detract from its curb appeal.
The power of PV solar goes way beyond lighting up the pool. It can power your entire business and slash your operating costs. Most commercial buildings have an extensive amount of unused roof space and the potential for carport installations or ground mounted solar 'farms' that track the sun in the sky and harvest that power for you.
Best of Both Worlds
Solar power doesn't have to be stand alone and off grid. Grid-Tie and Net Metering mean you can still draw power from the grid but pay it back and shrink your bill when your solar is at peak production – talk to us today to find out more.
