What Are the Benefits of Residential Solar Power?
The installation of residential solar energy has a host of benefits to the environment, the community, and the homeowner. Solar power systems are not only incredibly reliable and nearly maintenance-free, but they will also continue to generate power for decades. This reduces or eliminates the emission of greenhouse gases and other pollutants generated while burning fossil fuels. Residential solar power operates using an endless source of free, clean energy rather than finite and increasingly expensive fossil fuels.
In addition, the homeowner who creates more energy with their residential solar panels than they use in their home can get credits and even cash payments from local utilities. Imagine watching your electric meter run backwards on a bright, sunny day. Homeowners earn money when the extra energy they are producing feeds back into the electrical grid.

Although you can’t live off the grid, if you want to receive cash rebates from your utility company, there are still benefits to designing your residential solar energy system with a battery backup. With a bank of rechargeable batteries, you’ll be able to access your solar energy both day and night with no reliance on the grid. Back up batteries also work well in areas with frequent power interruptions. Without the batteries, if the grid goes down, you lose power also. Our team of experienced and licensed solar professionals have achieved the highest level of certifications possible and are experts at making sure that you get a system for the lowest cost possible. Your residential solar electricity system will be completely customized so that you can have the reliability you need from a solar system.

What Makes a Property a Good Candidate for Residential Solar Panels?
With the plentiful sunshine year-round in southern California, most homeowners can easily tap into this abundant energy source with solar power systems. All that is needed is adequate roof space for residential solar panel systems in a generally south-facing orientation. Although a direct southern exposure is optimal for residential solar, southwest or southeast are almost as good. Even east or west facing residential solar systems can capture enough sunlight for electricity generation and sound investment returns.
Shading is a critical factor to consider when positioning your solar energy system. Trees, and even the shadow of a utility pole can diminish the output of residential solar panels. Trimming or cutting down trees that cast even a brief shadow will vastly improve the output of residential solar energy systems. Let us determine whether your property is appropriate for residential solar power. At Mimeos, our customers are our first priority. You will find our friendly and knowledgeable staff to be highly competent and responsive throughout the process. Call us now at 323-669-8414 or contact us online to request a free solar evaluation.
Is a Residential Solar System Affordable?
The time to go solar is now. It has never been more affordable to install residential solar power. While efficiency improves each year, the price of solar panels has dropped dramatically! In addition to increased affordability, there are tax incentives and rebates that make solar even more affordable. We help you file Form 5695, the Residential Energy Efficient Property Credits, to receive your solar energy tax credits. If you don’t use the full credit the year you install your residential solar system, the credit extends through 2016, enabling you to receive full advantage of what is offered.
In addition, utility companies offer rebates for the installation of residential solar energy systems. They do this as an incentive for homeowners to connect clean energy production units to the electrical grid. Utilities are now required to have a certain percentage of their electricity production from renewable sources, and residential solar energy systems hooked to the grid count toward these quotas, known as “Renewable Energy Portfolio Standards.” These rebates help homeowners with the cost of their residential solar panel systems. Using calculations from the National Renewable Energy Laboratory, the utility rebate is based on how much and how well your solar panels produce power. You’ll be happy to know that Mimeos guides you through the entire rebate process for you from start to finish. Mimeos also helps make solar affordable for you by offering flexible financing options. Call us now at 323-669-8414 or contact us online for a free quote. We provide our services to the greater Los Angeles area, including Pasadena, Santa Barbara, Beverly Hills, Anaheim, San Diego, and Arcadia.
Something that makes Mimeos unique in the solar business is our Efficiency-First approach. Before we design your solar energy system, we do an energy analysis of your home, identifying cost-effective ways to lower your energy usage. This way, we can build a smaller solar system than would have been necessary without the energy efficiency improvements, potentially saving you thousands of dollars! There has never been a better time to install a solar energy system, so call us today at 323-669-8414 or contact us online.
Fantastic financing options are available. These include Solar Leases that require no upfront cost whatsoever, and Prepaid Solar Leases that allow you to go solar for a fraction of the cost of purchasing, with all the savings and benefits of purchasing. Plus, you get longer system warranty periods! Call us today at 323-669-8414 or contact us online to get started.
