Planning Your Summer Construction Project? Solar Should Be Your First Consideration

As the sun inches higher in the sky and temperatures begin their upward climb, the allure of summer construction projects beckons. Whether you're building your dream home, renovating your current home or business space, there's no denying the excitement of bringing your vision to life under the summer sun. If you are planning for summer home upgrades, there's more to consider than just the blueprints and building materials. 

Amidst the blueprints and material selections, there's one crucial element that often gets overlooked: energy efficiency. As California residents know all too well, the summer months can wreak havoc on utility bills, with air conditioning units working overtime to combat the heat. That's where solar power enters the picture.

Get Ahead of the Game: Install Solar Before Summer Strikes

  • One of the best parts about opting for solar? You get to enjoy the benefits sooner rather than later. One of the key advantages of prioritizing solar in your summer construction project is the ability to get ahead of the game – and ahead of your neighbors when they start feeling the sting of those skyrocketing energy bills. By installing solar panels early in the process, you're not only ensuring a seamless integration into your building design – you're also reaping the benefits of solar energy before the summer heatwave hits. Beat the Heat, Beat the Rush.

Harnessing Solar Energy from the Start

  • Imagine a construction project where every beam, every brick, and every wire is designed with energy efficiency in mind. That's the power of integrating solar from the very beginning. By making solar a priority in your construction plans, you're not just building structures – you're building sustainable, cost-effective solutions for the future.

California's Sweltering Summers: A Challenge Worth Conquering

  • In the Golden State, where the sun shines bright year-round, solar power isn't just a luxury – it's a necessity. We all know the feeling: the scorching heat of a California summer. As the mercury climbs, so do our energy bills, as we crank up the air conditioning to combat the relentless sun. With temperatures soaring and utility rates following suit, now more than ever, Californians are seeking alternatives to traditional energy sources. But what if there was a way to stay cool without breaking the bank? And what better time to embrace solar than during the construction phase?

Solar: Your Ticket to Beating the Heat and High Bills

  • Enter solar power. Integrating solar panels into your construction project from the get-go isn't just environmentally friendly – it's also a savvy financial move. With solar energy, you can keep your cool while keeping your utility bills in check. With each kilowatt-hour generated from the sun, you're reducing your carbon footprint – all while enjoying significant cost savings.

Power Up with Battery Storage

  • We're not stopping at just solar panels. In California, it is necessary for your installation to come with a cutting-edge battery storage or battery backup system. This means you can store excess energy generated during the day to use when the sun goes down for a storage system and for a battery backup system it can reduce your reliance on the grid and ensure uninterrupted power even during summer’s rolling blackouts. Make sure to talk to your rep about the difference and options.

As we bask in the warmth of the summer sun and embark on our construction endeavors, let's not forget the immense potential of solar power to transform our projects and our planet. This summer, don't let the heat – or the high utility bills – get you down. By integrating solar energy into our plans from the very beginning, we're not just constructing buildings – we're laying the foundation for a more sustainable, resilient future.
