Building a new home is an opportunity to do it right from the get-go: energy efficient construction, high-performance mechanicals and solar power systems. American Energy Advisors can work with you to make sure thousands of dollars in utility bills (as well as significant amounts of fossil fuel emissions) can be saved over the decades.
According to the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL), Nebraska is ranked thirteenth in the nation with the greatest energy potential from solar power. Estimates show that Nebraska could generate 21% of the state's demand for electricity from rooftop solar panels!
Solar power in Nebraska is becoming competitive with grid electricity, when you factor in dropping equipment prices and the statewide 30 percent tax credit, which can be used to install any size system.
New construction solar does not need to be expensive. The cost to build a high-performance ENERGY STAR home and install solar equipment are quickly recouped by energy savings. After optimizing the heating, cooling and appliance loads with an energy management plan, renewable energy systems offset the energy you do need.
A properly designed solar array plus an all-electric house equals freedom from utility bills, forever.
There a several primary factors to consider when designing a new home for solar:
The process starts with identifying lots that have good solar aspects and determining what kind of home you would like to have built. AEA usually joins the process when the home design is complete and the builder or homeowner needs to figure out the mechanical systems and how solar will fit into the design.
We work on many types of projects, from homeowner-contractors to production builders. We bring our expertise to every project. Our goal is for you to be beyond pleased with your solar power system.
