Why install a solar electricity system at your home or business? We'll give you 10 good reasons.
From one perspective, electricity is electricity, whether it is generated by burning coal or through the chemical reactions that occur within solar photovoltaic (PV) cells.

People who live in states where full sun all the time is not the norm often believe their location doesn't receive enough sunshine to generate adequate energy to power their homes or businesses. In fact, there are many factors that contribute to the economic advantages and power generation efficiency of home-based solar power systems, and the average amount of sun exposure is only one of them.
