Edison Solar has been in the alternative energy business since 2007. Although the company was formed just six years ago, our team brings years of experience in each position.
Edison Solar is fully insured and warrants all of its work for a period of one year. Manufacturers warranties on key components are for 25 years on solar panels and 10 years on inverters.
Edison Solar was founded primarily to make a difference in the changing global environment and to reduce the dependence of the United States on foreign energy. Our motto is “cleaning up the world one job at a time”. We believe that renewable energy projects with government support can now be done economically and that our team is more than qualified to execute any project we undertake.
There is no new form of energy on the horizon that suggests electricity is going to become obsolete. Electricity will continue to be needed and electric bills will not go away. These facts are about as certain as death and taxes. Economic history has also demonstrated that electricity prices will continue to rise. Further, pending new regulations on electric plants will likely increase their cost to comply, raising prices to the consumer.
This being the case, there are four good reasons to invest in renewable energy, instead of continuing to buy electricity generated from fossil fuels. They are: financial savings, increased physical and economic security, reduction of climate change, and preparation for the end of fossil fuels.
The empirical evidence is overwhelming that our world is getting warmer. This is clearly evident from abundant imagery showing the reduction of glaciers and ice caps. A few examples:
There are two potential categories of causes for climate change. They are the sun and other natural phenomena and the activities of man such as deforestation and greenhouse gas emissions.
While most people do not deny that climate change is happening, some doubt that the activities of man are playing a significant part in the change. If one takes the position that man’s role in climate change is uncertain, then there are two choices, to do nothing or to do something.
If the choice is to do nothing and some years in the future it is determined beyond anyone’s doubt that man’s actions were a substantial factor in climate change then it will be too late to avoid the worst effects because greenhouse gases take a long time to dissipate out of the atmosphere. If, on the other hand, the choice is to take action to reduce climate change and it is later determined that man’s actions had no significant effect, the result is merely a cleaner planet for future generations and a step in the inevitable transition from fossil fuels to renewable energy. One thing is for certain…sooner or later fossil fuels will run out.
If the argument for renewable energy to reduce climate change is not persuasive, and to many it is not, consider the following...
Perhaps the most important consideration for most people is financial. Consider the following example for solar. If you are paying 12 cents per kilowatt-hour, are in a 35% tax bracket, receive renewable energy credits, and take advantage of the federal tax credit, a commercial solar system will pay for itself in approximately 6 years, leaving a minimum of 19 years of free electricity.
With this kind of savings, doesn't it make sense that instead of sending your tax dollars to Washington that you put those dollars that you can gain from the 30% renewable energy tax credit and accelerated depreciation into your own solar project on your own property? Or, instead of gambling your investment dollars in the stock market or putting them in a bank where you will lose your meager interest to inflation, to put those dollars into your own green energy system on your own property and receive a sizable profit right at home investing against an inevitable bill?
At Edison Solar, we believe that the stakes are too high and the consequences too great for our future, the rest of humanity and the planet that the decision should be made for renewable energy. Installing a solar electricity generating system would be a big personal step you could take to improve our balance of trade, reduce funding for people who want to harm us, affect climate change, and save yourself some money.
