Beneficios de usar Baterías con Solar

Texas produce más electricidad que cualquier otro estado, por lo que los tejanos se sorprendieron en febrero pasado cuando la tormenta invernal Uri cerró repentinamente la mayor parte de la red eléctrica del estado. Los productores de energía de Texas no habían climatizado adecuadamente las plantas de gas natural, las turbinas eólicas y otros sitios de producción de energía para soportar las temperaturas extremadamente frías. Muchos de ellos dejaron de funcionar, requiriendo apagones continuos en algunas áreas y dejando a otras sin electricidad durante días.


Pero el "gran congelamiento" de Texas fue solo el úl...

Benefits of Solar Storage

Texas produces more electricity than any other state, so Texans were stunned last February when Winter Storm Uri suddenly shut down most of the state’s power grid. Texas’ power producers had not adequately weatherized natural gas plants, wind turbines and other energy-production sites to withstand the bitterly cold temperatures. Many of them stopped working, requiring rolling blackouts in some areas and leaving others without power for days.

But Texas’ “big freeze” was just the latest widespread blackout to hit the United States. Wildfires, hurricanes, heatwaves and high winds have also caused rolling blackouts, or as many California residents and PG&E customers ...

The Benefits of Investing in Solar-Powered Attic Fans

temp-post-image



When you think of solar energy, you likely picture shiny panels affixed to a roof. However, other forms of roof-top solar are just as viable, such as attic fans. These are small ventilation devices that run solely on solar energy. They’re primarily used to cool an attic during the sweltering summer months and protect the attic from condensation during the winter.


Although solar-powered attic fans aren’t as well-known as panels, they operate much more efficiently than standard attic fans, making them a viable alternative while being environmentally friendly. Here’s what you need to know about solar-powered attic fans and how they keep your home comfortable:

If you are building a new home today, it pays to consider integrating zero energy principles in your design. Zero energy homes are future-proof, making them a sound investment for anyone serious about owning property. People think that this type of home is too expensive, but innovations in the field are closing the margin for mainstream buyers. Here are things you should know about zero energy builds.


Zero Energy Homes Have a Good ROI


According to the Zero Energy Project, building a zero energy ready home means thousands of dollars in energy savings for homes across the U.S. For example, assuming electricity costs will increase at a rate of two percent per...

Frequently asked questions about solar energy (FAQ)

Thanks to the interest that solar energy brings and all savings that solar energy generate, many people seek to expand their knowledge in a way in which they can be part of this new alternative energy. In this blog we leave you the answers to the most frequent questions that we are asked about this when wanting to be part of the EnLight Energy family.


How do solar panels work?


Solar panels absorb solar energy generating a photovoltaic effect which translates into electrical energy that can be used, stored or even sold back to the grid for an extra credit!



How many solar panels do I need for my home?


There are several factors that affect the amount needed, however, at EnLight Energy we give you a...

Cómo funcionan las baterías de energía solar?

Las baterías complementan un sistema solar típico colocado en casas, que utiliza paneles solares para recolectar energía del sol y convertirla en energía eléctrica. Luego, un inversor convierte esa energía en el tipo correcto de corriente para alimentar una casa.



Mucha gente piensa que la mayoría de los hogares que funcionan con energía solar son independientes de la red eléctrica. En realidad, la mayoría trabaja en asociación con la empresa de servicios públicos local. Cuando los paneles solares producen más energía de la que necesita una casa, como en un día brillante y soleado, el exce...

How Does Solar Storage Work?

Storage helps complete a typical household solar system, which uses solar panels to collect energy from the sun and turn it into electrical energy. An inverter then turns that energy into the right kind of current to power a home.



Many people think that most solar-powered homes are independent of the electrical grid. Actually, the majority work in partnership with the local utility. When solar panels produce more energy than a home needs – as on a bright, sunny day – the excess electricity is fed back to the utility. Moreover, when the panels produce less – like on dark overcast days – a solar home pulls in the electricity it needs from the utility.



This arrangement g...

A qué se deben los ahorros de la energía solar?

En el más reciente blog, hablamos de costos añadidos al bill eléctrico, costos extra que hablaban de transportación y generación.


Pero, de qué se tratan éstos costos y por qué ocupan la mayor parte de la factura eléctrica?


Pues, éstos cargos son los que realiza la compañía de utilidad al generar energía desde una planta remota y posteriormente trasladarla hasta su hogar, es por eso que por cada KW que utilice, necesariamente estará siendo cobrado también por el transporte y generación de éste.


Éstos costos añadidos, pueden no parecer mucho por sí mismos, ya...

The benefits of using solar energy

Solar panels are increasingly common with time throughout the world as a response to environmental problems, with the help of solar energy it becomes an efficient way to counteract the complicated current situation of our planet. Here are some benefits of using solar energy:


Energy savings


The high costs that conventional energy brings are based on transportation costs and electricity generation carried out in the utility plants, which the client would be saving completely, since the energy is being generated on its own roof, without need for transportation. We will talk more about these added costs in another blog.


Less contamination


Solar panels take advantage of sunlight to generate energy, w...
