Benefits of Going Solar

“Every hour, the sun delivers as much energy to the Earth as all of humanity uses in a year. The total energy from just 20 days of sunshine is equal to all the energy available in the total reserves of coal, oil, and natural gas.” —Environmental Defense Fund

Solar Saves You Money

Most people think they cannot afford solar, but with a SOLFORCE Solar Electric System, you can save money from day one. If you are paying the electric company for electricity every month, you are renting electricity. Why not own your electricity and put that monthly payment back into your own pocket? As a home owner, you recognize the value of paying a mortgage rather than paying rent. Instead of putting money in a landlord’s pocket each month, you chose to be your own landlord and keep that money. Do the same with your electricity! By financing a SOLFORCE Solar Electric System with no money down, you can stop paying the electric company and instead, put the same monthly payment (or less in many cases) towards the ownership of your electricity. You can save money from day one and once you pay the system off, electricity will literally be free! With Federal and State rebates, there has never been a better time to get a solar electric system. Other solar electricity dealers will try to get you to lease a solar electric system. SOLFORCE Solar Electric Systems are not only more affordable, but they are the highest-efficiency systems you can get anywhere. The reason for this is that we use the most advanced technology available. Do not be fooled into waiting for a “more efficient” technology that is supposedly right around the corner. SOLFORCE Solar technology is reliable, proven technology that you can start using today. Every year you wait to install solar is one more year of renting electricity and throwing your money away. If you are like us, you are considering solar not only for the cost savings but also because it’s good for the environment. Stop putting your money into carbon-based electricity when you have a cleaner and more affordable source of electricity now! We are a local company that cares about our customers and our community.

Skip the messy fossil fuels and go right to the source!

You can make all of the electricity you need each year with a solar electric system. When you go solar, you directly contribute to the fight against global warming, the emission of toxic pollutants and the destruction of the environment. The best part is that you are investing in a near infinite resource. Unlike other fuels that we currently depend on, this one won’t run out for over a million years.

That is exactly what photovoltaic (PV) panels do.

Sun + PV Panels = Electricity. Zero toxic air emissions = Zero guilt.

By installing solar on your home, you are:

  • Reducing the need for environmentally destructive coal mining and natural gas extraction
  • Reducing the amount of sulfur, lead and mercury that is released into the atmosphere
  • Reducing the amount of CO2 (a greenhouse gas that causes global warming) that is released into the atmosphere
  • Reducing the need for resources that are decreasing in availability while they are increasing in cost
  • Reducing the use of inefficient fossil fuel produced electricity (there is a 65% loss when converting fossil fuels into electricity)

Let’s compare:

The average American household uses about 1000 kilowatt-hours of electricity per year. To make that electricity, power companies release an average of:

  • 16,800 lbs Carbon Dioxide per Year
  • 67 lbs of Poisonous Sulfur Dioxide per Year
  • 157 Milligrams of the Neurotoxin - Mercury

But wait! How does the production of the solar panels factor into the equation?

“We are actually saving over $100 per month every month over what we were paying PG&E. SOLFORCE did such a great job installing the system. It is just beautiful!" —Dr. Amanda Sue Carlisle

Producing solar panels does require energy and materials, but the worst case scenario shows that a solar panel will generate enough energy in less than 4 years to offset the energy required to produce it (National Renewable Energy Laboratory). However, there are steps you can take to reduce that time even more. This makes solar one of the most efficient sources of electricity on the planet, and you can have it installed on your home without any of the loss that occurs (through transmission lines) when you buy “green” power from your local utility company. Therefore, all of the energy produced after that is truly free.

About SOLFORCE

SOLFORCE began as an idea in 1993 when our founder and CEO, John Abraham Powell a.k.a. Abe, wanted to find a way to make his own clean energy safely at home. He had just graduated from Vassar College with a degree in philosophy; his philosophy was that he wanted to stop buying filthy power derived from fossil fuels and nuclear power. Therefore, he decided to go solar. At that time, there were no other solar electrical contractors in Santa Barbara, so he did it himself. He designed and installed his own solar electric system and lived off-grid for 7 years.

“When I first flipped the switch and turned on lights that were completely powered by the sun, something changed inside of me. I was making all of my own power and I wasn’t polluting the environment… and it really worked... and kept on working. I knew this was something big.”

“When I first flipped the switch and turned on lights that were completely powered by the sun, something changed inside of me. I was making all of my own power and I wasn’t polluting the environment… and it really worked... and kept on working. I knew this was something big.”

—John Abraham Powell

During the first 7 years of solar living, other people asked for his help in designing, installing and repairing their solar systems. After a few years of this, Abe realized that Santa Barbara needed someone to step up and make it easy to get solar electricity. In January of 2001, SOLFORCE was founded. Our mission is to show how beautiful and easy solar power can be and to create a company that cares about people and the environment. SOLFORCE started as a small local company with two employees who were dedicated to installing solar better than anyone else had ever done before. As it turned out, people liked this approach. Over the years, the company grew, but remained true to its commitment to keep its roots in the community. In 2008, SOLFORCE expanded its service area to Northern Santa Barbara County and Ventura County because we knew that our neighbors deserved the same excellent service that we had come to show in Santa Barbara. On January 31st, 2013, SOLFORCE celebrated its 12th anniversary. After more than a decade of service, we are energized by our success of our approach and we look forward to many more decades of solar service in Santa Barbara and Ventura counties.
