A recent study shows that photovoltaic systems are reliable and operating as expected, with 80% to 90% of all systems performing within 10% of the predicted production or better. This peer-reviewed study was based on the largest to date assessment of 100,000 solar systems. Newer solar panels have even lower rates of degradation, so are likely to produce 85-90% as much electricity after 25 years as they did when new. The lifespan of a solar
The June 2014 Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) report, which assess the impact of the Federal Power Act, indicates that natural gas is still leading the nation in installation capacity for the year overall. However, those numbers only record utility installations and do not account for residential rooftop and commercial installations of solar electric panels. Many industry professionals suggest that if that data was available, solar energy would be leading the the U.S. in installations. The Solar Industries
Everyone knows what it feels like to dread your power bill each month. In fact, most people have considered switching over to solar power in their homes. Perhaps you have too. It is a tempting idea but frequently it seems too daunting and confusing, so you decide to go without.

Some people look at solar energy from a purely environmental perspective. Others might acknowledge the benefits it has to our planet but focuses primarily on the long-term cost savings. Most people, however, tend to fall somewhere between the two sides of the spectrum, embracing solar energy for both the environmental and financial aspects of the technology. While your friends at Golden Solar are certainly doing what we can by assisting the fine people and companies
With an increase in pollution as well as a limited amount of resources, it’s imperative to find alternative sources of energy.
