California Will Install Solar Panels On New Houses
California is the first state where it is required to install solar panels on all new homes. Using solar panels is becoming a normal rule for the owner of a residential house.
Under the energy efficiency standards established by the California Energy Commission, most of the new homes that would be built on January 1, 2020, will include solar panels on the roof. Every year the solar industry is developing more and more. Critics believe the value of the house will increase by approximately $10,000.
Solar panels on the roof, which were previously considered luxury, now are becoming the main source of energy. California sets energy efficiency standards for household appliances and makes programs to limit greenhouse gas emissions across the economy. According to the efforts of Governor Jerry Brown, by 2030 the amount of carbon dioxide emissions would be reduced by 40%.
At the end of 2017, there were 10.4 gigawatts of residential solar energy in the US, which increased more than sixfold in five years. The solar industry began to slow down in 2017. Brent Anderson, spokesman for Meritage Homes Corp., suggests that home buyers will react negatively that they will have to pay more for the solar panel system. Solar panels will compensate for you about $19,000 during 30 years of energy and maintenance savings.
