The more accurate the information you can give us, the more accurate will be the estimate. This is especially true when it comes to the amount of your monthly electrical bill. When combined with the name of your power company (whose rates we know), we can get a good estimate of your existing monthly power usage. This then allows us to determine the number of solar panels needed to provide the percentage of solar power you specified you would like to achieve.

Hawaii free solar evaluation

A Hawaii free solar evaluation is a great step towards creating an alternative energy home. Hawaii has great solar exposure due to its tropical location. One of the greatest inhibitions to solar power is snow cover, because while the sunshine can make it through clouds, a solar panel covered in snow won’t pick up any sunlight. A rainy climate isn’t ideal, but it is better than a snowy one.

The first step towards setting up solar panels in HI is our free solar evaluation. It can take into account your power usage trends and local climate, all of which alter the number of solar panels you would want to erect. Some homes with light power usage can get away with just a few kilowatt hours of power, while larger plots with heavier usage need upwards of twenty.

Hawaii’s ecosystems offer an incredibly diverse arena for alternative energy generation. There is the tropical sun, which is capable of generating more power per square foot than sunlight in latitudes closer to the poles. There are the tides, which have been recently harnessed to produce tidal power. And there are the inland and sea breezes, since both mountains and coasts create regular prevailing winds. It all adds up to an ideal location to take advantage of alternative energy.
