Grid Parity Will Change Solar Energy Landscape

Grid Parity Will Change Solar Energy Landscape

Posted on May 26th, 2009 by admin

Once the cost of solar energy reaches the same price as electricityfrom the grid, then the state of “grid parity” will exist.California is close to grid parity now as it is one of the sunniest stateswith some of the highest utility bills.

At this point consumers may see the value of installing solarpanels and cost averaging them over a 25 year period in order torealize the savings. Or better yet, some solar panel installationcompanies will do this for you.

They will install the solar panels for free and then chargehomeowners a flat monthly rate over the next 25 years for theelectricity produced and in most cases the cost will be less thanthat charged by the large utility companies.

The solar grid parity situation will also create jobs forentrepreneurs who will be able to compete head on with the utilitycompanies. Given a choice, many consumers will opt for even monthlypayments from solar energy rather than paying the winter / summerrates and changing fees from the utility companies.

Also, homes in sunny areas will be less affected by blackouts andbrownouts in summer months during peak demand. In fact, in someareas, homeowners will be able to sell solar electricity back tothe utility companies and roll back their meters. And this would bea sweet situation to be in, now wouldn’t it?
