    2021 Longview, WA Solar Panel Guide

    We at Sunbridge Solar are proud to be the premier solar company in the greater Portland area. We serve the City of Roses with high-quality solar panels and equipment and unbeatable customer service. In this article, we’ll share some basics of solar energy in PDX.

    Solar Panels for Longview Homes

    Installing a home solar energy system provides three main benefits for homeowners: it reduces energy costs significantly, increases the value of the home, and reduces the homeowner’s carbon footprint. Solar energy is renewable, emissions-free, and sustainable – truly the energy source of the future.

    Solar Panels for Businesses in Longview

    Solar energy systems are also practical for business owners in Longview. These systems work similarly to home solar energy systems but on a larger scale. Solar panels can be installed on the roof of a business as well as on carports or shade structures in order to produce enough power for your business’s needs.

    Home Battery Backup

    At Sunbridge Solar, we offer more than just solar panels. Supplement your home solar energy system with a battery backup system that allows you to have power even during a grid outage. A battery system can also help save you money since you can avoid paying high time-of-use premiums.

    When the power grid experiences an outage, your solar energy system will automatically be turned off in order to avoid shocking technicians working on the grid, which means that with solar alone, you will be out of luck in an outage. However, with a battery backup system, you will have whatever energy that was stored in the batteries at the time of the outage available to tide you over until power is restored.

    Longview, WA Solar FAQs

    Here are a few questions we get asked a lot. If you have more questions, feel free to contact us.

    The ideal mounting position for solar panels on your Longview home is on a pitched, south-facing area of your roof. This position provides the most direct sunlight and the best angle, which increases energy production drastically when compared to flat-mounted panels.

    When the photons in the sun’s rays hit the surface of the panels, they knock electrons loose within the silicon, which creates an electrical charge. This charge then flows through wires to an inverter, where it’s converted from DC to AC power, which is what your household appliances and devices use.

    This is likely to happen during the long, sunny summer days in Longview. Fortunately, you can ‘sell’ your excess electricity to your utility company in exchange for credits on your account, thanks to a solar incentive program called net metering. These credits can be used against your energy bills in the winter, when your solar energy production will likely be much lower and your energy consumption rate higher.

    Most solar panels have lifespans between 25 and 30 years. Minimal maintenance is required - generally only an annual inspection and cleaning. The payback period for solar panels in Washington is about 9.4 years, which means that you will save as much on your energy bills as you originally spent on the solar energy system in less than 10 years on average, and then you can continue to enjoy free or very low cost energy for the remaining 15-20 years of your solar panels’ lifespan. The average savings over 20 years is more than $17,600 for homeowners in Washington.

    Yes, Washington has many different local and state solar incentives that can be combined with federal incentives like the solar investment tax credit. By taking advantage of these incentives, you can greatly reduce the upfront cost of installing a solar energy system.
