Title: ABC%20Solar%20Incorporated

ABC Solar Incorporated
  • Government, Not-For-Profit, Commercial and
  • Solar Energy Systems
  • A Step by Step Guide
  • Prepared for
  • South Bay Energy Fair 2006May 20th, Rancho Palos
    Verdes, CA

What am I going to Solar on about today?
  • Introduction
  • Solar Power Basics
  • The Technology
  • The Market Stakeholders
  • Californias New Gold Rush
  • Residential Solar Examples
  • You Can Make It Happen
  • Things to ask
  • Jobs, Jobs, Jobs

Going Solar Is A Mission
  • Encourage Energy Awareness
  • Encourage Wide Solar Participation
  • Encourage Job Growth

What is todays Solar technology?
  • Todays solar technology comes in two basic
  • Framed Solar Panels
  • 75w to 205w
  • 36 x 48 to 52 x 60
  • 24v to 48v nominal DC voltage
  • We use Sharp, Shell, BP Solar, Kyocera
  • Flexible Solar Panels
  • 64w to 128w
  • 15.5 x 9 to 15.5 x 18
  • 12v compatible DC voltage
  • We use the Unisolar peel
  • Stick solar panels

  • Photovoltaic (PV) solar cells are silicon-based
    solid-state semiconductor devices that convert
    light from the sun directly into electricity.
  • There are no moving parts and
  • no external fuel is required.
  • The phenomenon occurs when photons of light
    provide the electrons enough energy to create a
    current flow. The current produced is DC, which
    is then converted to AC via an inverter ("solar
    electric interface") for use in your building's
    current electrical system.

How do you determine what size of solar system do
you need?
  • Typical home can be run with a 3KW solar system
    (1400 sq. ft.)
  • Typical Elementary School can be run with a 60 KW
    Solar System
  • 1KW 150 kWh a month in production

What are the Incentives?
  • California Energy Commission
  • 2.80 per ac watt.
  • 7,000 for a 2.5 Kilowatt AC Solar System
  • Federal Tax Credit
  • 30 after rebate fed tax credit (max 2000)
  • 2,000 for a 2.5 Kilowatt AC Solar System
  • 9000 In Total First Year Incentives

For Example60KW Commercial Solar System
  • Commercial systems vary greatly in size and
    scope. For this discussion we will use a 60KW DC
    solar electric system.
  • 6000 sq ft of roof space
  • 9,000 kWh a month on average in solar electricity

What Solar Means to You?
  • This system will
  • Produce/save 108,000 kWh of electricity in the
    first year
  • (_at_.20 per kWh that is 21,600 a year)
  • Eliminate 102,000 lbs of CO2 emissions in the
    first year

Example System Estimates
  • Product Total 326,963
  • Installation Est. 56,753
  • Before Rebate 383,716
  • CEC Rebate 172,137
  • Grand Total 211,579
  • Simple ROI -- 10 years.

The solar panels have a 25 year power
warranty They warranty that the panels will be
making energy at above 80 of what they are doing

The Process
  • What is the Rebate Process in California?
  • determine size of system you want
  • fill multi-page forms
  • signed sales agreement for equipment
  • signed construction agreement
  • Include copy of current electric bill
  • submit all papers and wait
  • once you get your reservation you and ABC Solar
    will execute binding agreements and install your
