If you’ve shied away from getting solar power because of a common misconception that it’s too complicated and expensive, Home Link Pros Solar staff are making going solar easy and affordable.
Residents of California pay about triple the national average for electricity, in part because of high delivery fees stemming from the power travelling hundreds of miles on power lines to reach their homes, according to Home Link Pros Solar Founder Mike Terry.
“You can buy electricity cheaper if it’s made on your own roof and can be delivered a really short distance,” he said. “So people have solar panels installed on their roof, they start using clean energy, (it) actually costs them less and they don’t need to make a big investment to do it.”
While it may have cost homeowners tens of thousands of dollars in cash to get Santa Clarita solar panels 10 years ago, Terry noted that this isn’t the case now.
“Solar comes as a service now, so right now, everybody who lives in Santa Clarita has an ongoing agreement, a contract, with (the electric company), which does a great service for them, but the customer isn’t in control of their pricing,” he explained. “Prices vary and they have traditionally gone up.”
Terry added, “With solar, you’re basically deciding that, hey, I’m going to buy my power in a different way, I’m going to buy it at a lower price, and more importantly, I’m going to know what my power is going to cost over time in the future. And I know that the source of power is clean and on my own roof, which a lot of people really like.”
Picking a Santa Clarita solar company such as Home Link Pros Solar instead of a traditional electric company can be compared to using a new gas station that sells gasoline for $1 a gallon — the car will still get what it needs to run, and there won’t be any difference for the driver, according to Terry.
However, when it comes to solar energy, residents not only save money, they also help the environment, Terry noted.
“There’s no carbon emissions, there’s no smog, and a really important thing that a lot of people don’t know about solar is that it saves water,” he said. “That sounds weird, but the average home uses more water to make its electricity than it does to flush its toilets, wash its dishes and do its lawn.”
The water use is a result of the electric company pouring water on natural gas fires to produce steam, which makes the turbines spin and creates electricity, according to Terry.
As a result, solar power homes offset more water use than they would if the homeowner stopped showering, brushing their teeth and watering their lawn, Terry added.
Santa Clarita solar installation is tailored to match each homeowner’s individual energy use and the configuration of the specific house’s roof, and so Terry recently decided to resign as an executive at the biggest solar company in America and start his own business so he can serve his customers better.
“We could see that the bigger the company got, the less personal the service was becoming, the less customized each solution was,” he explained. “So we knew that if we were going to do this right, it had to be done small, it had to be done local — so we started Home Link.”
