Homeowners no longer have to decide between choosing a solar system that heats their water, or one that provides electricity for their homes.
Del Sol Energy in Brentwood is offering a revolutionary new solar system that combines the best of both worlds and is packed with savings for residents who choose the new system.
CoolPV Solar is a new system that offers enhanced solar electric and solar water heating using the same roof space as traditional solar panels.
“CoolPV is a very slick piece of technology that combines solar thermal (hot water) and photovoltaic (solar electric or PV) into one unit, saving space and boosting efficiency,” said Joshua Resneck, Del Sol Energy director of sales. “As PV panels get hot, they lose efficiency. Why not use that heat to warm your pool and simultaneously cool down the PV panels to squeeze more efficiency out of them?”
CoolPV’s unique design produces up to four times more energy than typical solar electric systems, resulting in lower PG&E bills and greater savings.
The new system will also extend pool season for homeowners with pools, warming the water from spring to fall.
Del Sol Energy is also offering another new and innovative product. LG Chem Batteries can be added to your current system and store surplus energy generated from solar panels.
This stored energy can be used when the sun sets and energy demand is high, which often results in PG&E price hikes.
The stored energy can also be used during black-outs or power outages. While grid-tied solar systems automatically switch off, a battery storage system allows you to keep generating and consuming energy when the grid goes down.
To make taking advantage of these new services easier, Del Sol Energy offers many financing options, including zero down financing and customers can still take advantage of the federal tax credit for those who purchase solar products.
Del Sol’s customers not only enjoy the ease of purchasing their solar systems, but are thrilled with the savings they provide.
“It feels really good not forking money over to PG&E each month,” said Brentwood resident Anthony Rachal. “Getting solar was a smart move and I’m glad I hired Del Sol.”
