Solar Panels Have Found Their Place in the Sun
In July of 2017, Gabriela Tamez-Martinez and Alejandro Martinez-Munoz founded a new company, SolarES LLC (Solar Energy Solutions). They had known they wanted to be a part of the solar industry for many years because, “We want to save the world.” They see solar power as a sustainable power solution.
They are authorized dealers of Sunfinity Solar, a Texas company with operations in Texas and California, that designs and installs Solar Energy Systems for residential and commercial buildings. SolarES also promotes outdoor Solar-powered LED lighting solutions with Internet connectivity.
Alejandro explained solar panels: “A solar panel converts solar power into electricity that can be used in our homes. A solar panel system is like having a power plant in your house. Solar energy radiates into the panels. The panels have materials that allow a free flow of electrons which creates electricity that comes into our houses via a meter. The house soaks up electricity for the daily consumption needs. If there is excess, the energy will be sent to the electric grid and stored for future use. With your system connected to the Internet, you will get all these analytics in your mobile via an app.”
He points out environmental reasons readers should choose solar energy, “You will be cleaning the environment, reducing your carbon footprint and creating a more sustainable world.” He also addresses financial reasons to go this route, “You are very likely to save money.” He said his commitment to customers is to provide a set of panels that will reduce, and probably eliminate, their electric bill. A typical loan for solar panels costs $120 a month over 20 years (this varies per home).” He points out that electric bills fluctuate over time for your entire life, but this loan will remain the same and have an end date. If customers would like to pay for the system with cash, that is also an option. Solar panels increase the value of homes.
Some electric companies offer rebates if a person chooses to install solar panels because it will lessen the demand on the electric companies’ resources especially as demand increases with the impressive growth of population in North Texas. In January of 2018, the Martinez-Tamez family had Sunfinity Solar panels installed. They were given a $500 rebate from Farmers Electric right after their system started working. Alejandro shared their electric bill comparisons:
Feb 2017 $84, Feb 2018 $0, March 2017 $73, March 2018 $0, April 2017 $80, April 2018 $0, May 2017 $89, May 2018 $0, Jun 2017 $171, Jun 2018 $0.
Alejandro said, “SolarES provides free estimates and analysis with technical details and financial comparisons.” They will manage HOA permits. He said that legally, HOAs cannot prevent homeowners from installing solar panels and that homeowners should not expect any issues.
