Is there a way I can use solar power and grid power simultaneously?
Yes of course, this is absolutely possible! Grid-connected systems are basically operated this way and they use the grid as a giant battery that complements the solar production.
Now what you need is an inverter designed for grid-connected systems, which basically makes sure the solar production is turned off during power outages for security reasons (to prevent feeding back into the grid during times when for instance grid operators are doing maintenance and think they have disconnected the power. Under these circumstances, "islanding" of your grid-connected system is required.
The principle is simple - use all available production from the solar system and draw the differential power from the grid. Since batteries can be pretty expensive, customers are always thrilled to find out you can still benefit from affordable solar energy in Anaheim without them!
Are solar panels cost effective?
Solar photovoltaic panels are already cost effective in many places and are fast becoming cost effective universally as their prices drop.
What are the main reasons to use solar energy in Anaheim?
A bright sunny climate, such as the American southwest, allows each panel to generate more power. A panel in Anaheim, for example, is able to produce a lot more electricity than one in, say, Seattle.
Different parts of the world have different electricity costs which vary according to the power plants used, utility regulations, taxes and billing structures. Power companies often have "base load" plants that produce electricity at very low prices, but cannot be throttled up or down very quickly, and "peaking plants," which cost more to operate but can be turned on and off very quickly to meet demand.
Electricity in Hawaii costs almost 50 cents/kwh in much of the state, whereas in a state like Pennsylvania, with more conventional nuclear and coal power plants, the (residential) cost is closer to 12 cents/kwh. You'll notice a much higher proportion of homes in Hawaii have solar panels than homes in Pennsylvania. Residential electric prices are usually much higher than prices charged for industrial use.
One of the major components of the cost of solar panels is the installation. If the installation can take advantage of things that would lower costs, such as a roof that's nearly perfectly oriented, or offset other costs such as the need to replace a roof anyway, this can speed up the ROI of a solar panel system.
The need to hook up to the power grid, especially in remote places, can make solar panels much more attractive. Connecting to the grid can costs thousands of dollars for a cabin in the woods, for example - which could instead be spent on solar panels. Roadside signs in the middle of nowhere have used solar panels for years.
Having an alternate power source available such as a grid connection or storage system can make solar panels more palatable - such as on cloudy days or when it's dark.
We've seen solar cells used in calculators for years, because the amount of power required by a calculator is very small.
And of course tax credits come in many forms, but the net effect is to reduce the costs of installing a solar panel system. Solar photovoltaics already make financial sense in many places throughout the USA and the rest of the world and, as panel prices drop and storage technology improves, the trend towards solar energy is only going to increase.
How much does a solar energy home system cost?
As you can imagine, that depends on the amount of power you want to produce and the size of your home...
A residential solar energy system in Anaheim can range in price from $15,000 – $50,000, before Anaheim solar kit incentives, depending on roof size and energy needs...but the average system is worth about $30,000.
With the current solar energy grants a homeowner would pay roughly 30% of that cost and the balance would be covered by the federal, state, and city incentives. Whether you choose to lease, finance, or purchase a system your cost will be significantly less than staying with your utility company as your system will produce tens of thousands of dollars worth of energy over its lifetime.
