Have you ever wondered how solar power works?
How those weird looking solar panels convert sunlight into power for your home? We at Stellar have found that many people are in the dark about how the process of using solar power for your home works, so we put together this simplified info graphic to help you understand:
The city of Encinitas has just begun a yearlong pilot program that waives or reduces permit fees for energy efficient projects that make homes more green:
Among the projects included: Solar Photovoltaic (PV) systems, solar water heating systems, electric vehicle supply equipment (EVSE), clean natural gas (CNG) home refueling systems.
A permit for solar panels currently costs around $320 and after the one-year trial, city staff shall report to the city council who will decide if they will continue the program.
