New Jersey Solar Facts
How much energy can you get from solar power every month? Well, if your roof gets a lot of direct sunlight, the answer might surprise you. You may be able to harness so much solar power that your monthly electric bill is virtually wiped out. In fact, the U.S. receives so much energy from the sun that if we were able to collect all of it for only 40 minutes, we could gather enough energy to keep the whole country running for an entire year.
But a lot of that depends on the type of solar power you use in your home. For example, some solar energy systems don't require much technology at all. These "passive" systems use the sun's position in the sky to naturally circulate air and heat throughout your home, and different materials like glass, stone, cement and water to store and conduct the sun's heat.
The opposite of this, and what most people think of when they think of solar power, is an "active" generation system. These are the solar panels you now see on many houses and businesses all over the Garden State. Active systems utilize the latest technology to harness the sun's rays to their full potential, using both lenses and mirrors to concentrate light dozens of times over onto small cells that convert it into energy that can be store on batteries when the sun isn't out.
You can also find various solar power devices that do everything from heat the water and disinfect in your home's water tank to cook food.
New Jersey is one of the nation's fastest-growing solar states because of the generous incentives both the state and federal government provide, which has helped the price for installing such a system come down considerably.
And with power costs always on the rise, now is the time for those who have been on the fence about solar energy to commit to gaining energy independence and reducing your electric bills to almost nothing.
