Keswick’s pristine ravine location means that the community is committed to environmental stewardship for years to come. Solar panels are one of the most talked about features in the showhomes so we thought we would explain a little more about how solar works in Keswick.
What are the Advantages of Solar? How do Homeowners Save Money?
What happens when you purchase and install solar is that you lock into a lower electricity rate for decades to come. That means you get to see a return on your investment, versus purchasing electricity from the grid where you just pay a bill each month.
Plus, a solar photovoltaic system increases your resale value, in proportion to the cost of the system.
How Does it a Solar PV System Work, Exactly?
A solar panel system has no battery. Instead, it is connected directly to an electrical panel which ‘feeds’ the grid.
Anytime your home produces more electricity than it uses, you receive a credit on your electrical bill for the energy you’ve exported to the grid.
