Understanding Payback Periods
With the cost of solar panels decreasing at a rapid rate, there is no better time than now to go solar and save thousands of dollars on energy bills.
But a big reason that some people choose not to go solar is that they worry about the time it will take for them to recoup their cost. This time is called a payback period.

Aikyum Solar Specializes in Gas Station Solar Installations
Gas stations can save a lot of money with solar, because IMG_5186solar panels can be placed above the canopy of the station and on top of the store building. However, gas station solar installations can be quite tricky due to underground storage tanks and gas pipelines. The good news is that Aikyum Solar specializes in gas station solar installations.

How Long Do Solar Panels Last?
solar-panel-1175819_1920Solar panels last 30-40 years, with little to no maintenance required. Typically, solar panels lose about 0.5% of efficiency every year due to depreciation. With this model, after forty years of energy savings, your solar panel system will still be operating at 80% efficiency.

How Temperature Affects Your Solar Production
Many people believe that the hotter the weather is outside, the more energy their solar panels will produce. However, this statement is actually false. Temperature and energy production are negatively correlated, meaning that as the temperature rises, the solar panels will actually decrease in efficiency. Most photovoltaic solar panels have a temperature threshold of 25 degrees Celsius (about 77 degrees Fahrenheit). Below this temperature threshold, solar panels will perform at maximum efficiency, assuming that they receive direct sunlight. However, above this threshold, solar panels will decrease in efficiency.

NEM 1.0 to 2.0 – Everything You Need to Know About the Transition
What is Net Metering?
Net energy metering, or “NEM”, is a special billing arrangement that provides credit to customers with solar PV systems for the full retail value of the electricity their system generates. For example, if you are being charged 30 cents per kWh, you will receive credit at that same rate of 30 cents per kWh.

SMA Inverters Give Power Even During a Power Outage!
When there is a power outage in your area, no energy can be delivered to your home because all power grids in the area are essentially shut-off. Even if you have solar panels, your inverter will be down and unable to produce power.
