Solar Advantages

Everything revolves around the sun, even this planet itself.

Our shrinking oil supplies are made of decayed plant life that once fed on the sun’s energy. Solar energy, unlike oil, is a renewable energy source that doesn’t pollute our environment. Years of government inaction and misinformation spread by Big Energy has caused American to continue relying on expensive and harmful fossil fuels.

Thankfully we are in the wake of a solar revolution. With new technology solar power costs are sinking. With government incentives, you now have the ability to escape high cost energy and trade up to harnessing the sun’s natural energy. Solar energy is fast, easy and a sound financial move.

Solar systems have few moving parts, are silent, and require almost no maintenance. Warning signals , navigational buoys, aircraft warning lights and railroad crossings are just a few ways solar power has proven its reliability.

Solar systems provide respite from energy rate hikes by major power companies. BDS Solar is taking part in the green energy movement by helping homeowners receive solar energy for no money down, attractive lease-to-own options and government incentives.

A solar system will increase your home’s value without increasing property tax. The U.S. Department of Energy recently detailed how for every $1 in energy a homeowner saves with solar energy, it adds between $10 to $20 to their home’s value. If a system cuts energy costs by $500 a years, it can add up to $10,000 to the home’s value.

Many state and federal government incentives can provide even more savings on solar power making is more affordable than ever to go solar.

Solar energy does not only work in sunny, temperate regions either. These panels can be effective in cooler temperatures as well. Germany is the world’s solar energy leader, while people in Alaska, where it can be dark for months at a time, are also enjoying the benefits of solar energy.

Going solar now can lock in your low energy costs and power you home for almost no money out of pocket.

If just 5% of the houses in the U.S. went solar, it would be the equivalent of:
  • Taking 7,700,000 cars off the road –roughly equal to the total number of automobiles sold in the U.S. in 2007.
  • Removing 89,600,000 pounds of CO2 from the environment.
  • Retiring 6,900,000 trees from their “CO2 offsetting” jobs.

Here's what others are saying:
  • The whole process was fast and easy!

    - Mr. and Mrs. White, Orange County, CA
  • Just wanted to drop you guys a line and let you know that I just received my first SCE bill since firing up my solar electrical system. The bill covered Aug 6 to Sept 6, which is traditionally my largest bill. Last year’s bill was $451, and two years ago, the bill for this period was $362. Imagine my surprise when I opened my bill for this month, and it was $26.16!!! At this rate, our solar electric system is generating about 1,000 KWH per month. If it continues to do this during the summer months, I will not have much of a SCE bill, in fact, I am envisioning SCE paying me!

    - Michael & Joann Mote, Simi Valley, CA
  • We couldn't believe how simple and easy BDS Solar made our solar experience. Now we get to sit back, relax, and reap the benefits of our solar energy savings!

    - Stephan & Cynthia Ukas-Bradley, Simi Valley, CA
  • After using BDS Solar, I couldn't believe how much money i was wasting on my electrical needs. Now I've got extra money in my pocket, raised the value of my house, and am helping the environment. I couldn't have asked for a better outcome.

    - Deann Dover, Woodland Hills, CA
  • After my solar experience I have been referring all my friends and family to BDS Solar. The installation crew was clean and prompt and finished on time. They were professional in every aspect. My neighbors are already calling to get their solar system!

    - Evelyn Meyer, North Hills, CA
  • We were impressed with how thorough BDS Solar was. Their auditors discovered we were losing 60% of our heating through leaks in the ductwork. We were also impressed that they didn't try to sneak in things to inflate our price

BDS Key Points on Residential Rooftop Solar

BDS Solar, Inc. provides:
  • Zero-down financing options, nothing out of pocket
  • Ground and post mounts, eliminate panels on front of house
  • Non purchases that are transferable to any buyer of your home
  • ‘Meet or Beat’ any quote you have
Net Metering: Any power that you don’t use from your solar electric system literally spins your meter backwards and you receive a credit from utility company

“Time of Use” Metering: The credits can be applied at retail rates, and in the middle of the day that means your credits stack up quickly. You then draw the power at night when rates are low. What a deal!

Tier Shaving: Further, in most states, the more power you use, the more you are charged based on your tiered usage. Solar helps by eliminating your usage in the high tiers and thus brings down your bills by shaving off the expensive power first.

Rising Utility Costs: Electric rates have historically gone up at a higher rate than inflation over time. Therefore, the ability to fix your long term cost of energy yields a higher and higher return on your investment over time.

How Solar Works
Solar panels convert the sunlight into electricity. Your solar system will generate enough power to reduce or eliminate your electricity bill. Please check out our website for a 2-3 minute video, on how it works.

Here’s how it works:
Solar panels consist of tiny cells which are made up of treated silicon – each one collects solar radiation and converts it into an electrical current. The panels are wired together in series to create an array and the electrical output from the array travels through wires to an inverter typically located near your breaker box. The inverter converts the electrical current called “Direct Current” (DC) and into “Alternating Current’ (AC) which is used to run TVs, appliances, computers, etc.

BAM! You’ve got a solar electric production right on your roof.

So instead of the sun’s energy just bouncing off the roof of your house, you’re actually harnessing it to safely and quietly generate energy.

Savings with Rebates & Incentives
BDS Solar, Inc. is a full service solar system expert. In addition to design, installation, and follow up, we are dedicated to maximizing your savings by helping you take full advantage of all the available rebates and incentives in your area. Rebates and incentives vary greatly and are mainly determined by the state you live in and the utility you power from. Below is an overview of the types of programs that are available. SoCal Edison currently has no rebates left. The Los Angeles Department of Water and Power (DWP) is approximately 4% of the gross system cost.

Federal Tax Credits
Currently, there’s a generous federal tax incentive that helps make solar panels much more affordable. Here’s what the credit entails:
  • There’s a 30% Federal tax credit for the purchase and installation of residential and commercial solar systems. This credit expires at the end of 2016.
  • If you purchase your system: you receive this tax credit when you file your tax returns and we will help by receiving a huge discount on you total price.
State & Utility Rebates
Several states and utility companies offer financing incentives for homeowners and businesses to go solar. Rebates vary by area and utility company.
