Why Solar Energy?
Solar panels are the most effective way to take control of your energy bills. Let Francis help you take that step. With your Francis solar system, you will lock in your cost of solar power for 25-30 years, or more. What’s more, coupling your Francis solar system with energy storage systems will enable you to achieve total energy independence – no more utility rate increases, no more blackouts – it’s a new paradigm, and you can be a leader in this transformation. Beyond energy independence, solar is also great capital investment. At today's rates, you can produce energy from your solar system at as low as half the price that you currently pay the utility. Solar provides a guaranteed return on investment, year after year, for as long as the solar system is producing energy. Compared with other comparable guaranteed investments - US treasuries, certificates of deposit (CDs), and money market funds - solar beats those investments every time.
Solar can be installed in many different ways:
On any roof
This is typically the most affordable installation, especially on shingle and metal roofs. Plus the space is already unused!
On the ground
The system will never need to be removed for a roof replacement, and can be tilted to any angle to optimize energy production.
As a carport
Why build a carport with a fabric or metal roof when you can cover the structure with solar panels that are warrantied for 25 years and come with a 30% federal tax credit?
As a tracking system
Solar tracker systems are great for limited space and battery-backup systems. These systems use motors to face the panels toward the sun at all times. These systems produce energy longer throughout the day, and more energy per year per square foot.
