What are the benefits of solar power?
A typical 2.0kWp (kilowatt peak) PV system will occupy an area of 172 square feet and if south-facing at a pitch of 35°will generate around 1,800 kWh/year.
The installed costs vary according to style and size but are typically in the range of $6,000 to $10,000 per kWp.
Photovoltaic roof systems are a very efficient way of generating some, if not all, of a building’s electricity requirements with no running costs and no pollution, every Kilowatt hour of solar electricity you produce will save approximately 1 pound of CO2 .
Currently the federal government will provide a 30% grant for installation of solar systems to qualifying businesses.
