GoGreenSolar Goes Crypto, Accepts Bitcoin and Ethereum

What do cryptocurrencies and solar have in common? Both help to decentralize power from the hands of the few into the control of the many. But now, the relationship between the two upstarts have even more similarities, as GoGreenSolar.com, based in southern California, has become the first solar installer to accept the new age cryptocurrencies as payment in the forms of both Bitcoin and Ether (the fuel of Ethereum). The new age monetary system which debuted in 2009 has recently been making a buzz in the financial world as many people (and even some countries) have begun to adopt its use.  The most popular types of cryptocurrency, Bitcoin and Ethereum, have seen an exponential rise in their value as more users become convinced that they are a safer and more reliable alternative to centralized currencies manipulated by a country. In 2014 GoGreen Solar made headlines after completing the world’s first solar installation exclusively paid in Bitcoin. “Allowing our customers to use this open source currency makes solar more accessible and it aligns with our core belief in decentralizing power,” explains Harold Tan, CMO of GoGreenSolar. The Bitcoin-purchased-solar-setup, which is located in Huntington Beach, CA, included a 5 kilowatt photovoltaic system, pairing 20 Enphase microinverters with 250 Watt Sharp solar panels. Following on the heels of the installation’s success and the ease of payment experienced during the process, GoGreenSolar has expanded its resources to accept Ether in addition to Bitcoin in its financial transactions, making history by turning decentralized currency into reliable and decentralized energy from the sun.

SoCal Edison Net Metering 1.0 Expires June 30th 2017!

Avoid Upcoming Changes to California Electricity Rates! Net Metering 1.0 is straight forward: the electric company measures how much energy you use from the grid and how much energy your solar panels put back into the grid. Customers are only charged the net amount, and if you export more than you consume, you would get paid for the extra energy produced! However, Southern California Edison is now in the process of initiating NEM (Net Energy Metering) 2.0, which is based on TOU (Time of Use), and you will be charged higher rates for energy usage during peak hours. This means that if you wait to go solar, you’re going to get less money for your extra power! The good news is that you still have a chance to avoid these upcoming changes. NEM 2.0 starts once Southern California Energy reaches a cap in energy usage for NEM 1.0 on June 30th 2017. If you install solar panels before the NEM 1.0 list fills up, you are guaranteed a spot on the original NEM program plan for 20 years past your original interconnection date. That means now is the perfect time to install solar – before these new changes go into effect! Those interested in solar panels need to install as soon as possible, because there is limited space left on the NEM 1.0 list – and your panels need to be installed and approved before the list fills up. Every moment that you wait to install solar, you risk missing out on 20 years’ worth of savings! Contact GoGreenSolar today to find out how we can save you thousands of dollars. One of our friendly solar professionals will conduct a free analysis of your roof and provide a proposal for your own customized solar system.

How Silicon Valley is Going Solar

How Silicon Valley is Going Solar

  If you were to board a helicopter and fly over Silicon Valley to get an aerial perspective, you would see thousands of sleek black solar panels glaring back at you in the California sun. Silicon Valley, California’s beloved tech hub in the San Francisco Bay Area, is arguably one of the most influential places in the world in regard to global technology developments. If you own, invest in or create hardware or software in the 21st Century, chances are that you have a presence in the valley. Disruptive technology such as the original iPhone has its origins right here. It’s the absolute center of our cloud-based world. The valley has been stereotyped as the home of yoga attending, t-shirt wearing millennial activists who are on a mission to change their world through meaningful careers in the booming tech sector. Ever-present in the minds of many of these young CEOs and mover/shaker types is the energy crisis that many feel to be an inevitability. They’re genuinely concerned about the rate at which earth’s growing population is consuming non-renewable resources, and they’re actually doing something about it. Solar energy is catching on in a big way here, and there are a few reasons why. Government solar incentives We can credit some of the developments in Silicon Valley’s solar use to the state’s political environment. California has more solar panels in use than any other state in the United States, and the state government plans to keep it that way. The state has a policy that allows customers who use solar panels to be compensated for the energy that they generate. The high rates of payment for solar energy in the state is likely the primary reason why California is leading the nation when it comes to solar power, and why Silicon Valley, in particular, is getting in on the action. Not only can incentives help immensely, but as we talked about a few months ago, the national cost of solar installations are at an all time low. Major companies going solar Because Silicon Valley represents such a huge segment of the global tech market, you can imagine that its residents consume a lot of energy. With major corporations like Google and Apple having global headquarters in the Valley, thousands of people go in and out of their huge facilities every single day. Studies show that over the last twenty years, Silicon Valley has consistently consumed more energy per capita than anywhere else in the state. Because of this, the valley is in greater need of a solution than many other regions. Apple, one of the Valley’s most prestigious, influential and...

Solar Tax Credits in New Mexico Might Have a Bright New Future

Solar Tax Credits in New Mexico Might Have a Bright New Future

A bipartisan effort by New Mexico legislators supported bills in the House and Senate to revive the state’s solar tax credit, which expired last year in 2016. The endorsed bill aims to renew the state’s solar incentive credits for an additional eight years, gradually being reduced from 10 percent to 5 percent by 2025. “New Mexico is known for its abundant sunshine, yet Arizona and Colorado have more solar-related businesses, jobs and installation capacity than we do,” Fox Business News quoted Republican Rep. Sarah Maestas Barnes, a sponsor of the legislation. Since New Mexico’s previous tax credit had expired in 2016, the state saw a sudden drop of employment and revenue generated by solar installations. Over the tax credit’s eight year lifespan, people installing solar had spent over $40 million on labor, spurring nearly a quarter billion dollars of related investments and economic growth. For legislators and constituents, the promise of invigorating the state’s economy during these sluggish times was well worth the $5 million annual price tag of funding the incentive program. As an added bonus for residents considering switching to solar, a drastic reduction in the price of materials has nearly halved the cost per a watt from $9 in 2009 to $4.52 in 2016 with the tax credit program. A combination of New Mexico’s latest solar incentive and record low costs for solar materials will surely generate some of the lowest solar costs residents of the state have ever seen–but only for those that manage to secure the new tax credit before its funding cap is reached and applications fill up.

Is New Jersey’s latest solar incentive bill too baller?

Is New Jersey’s latest solar incentive bill too baller?

A recently passed solar incentive bill to promote residential solar in New Jersey and cut down on grid congestion has recently come under fire for being too generous. New Jersey Rate Counsel DIrector Stefanie Brand critiqued Bill A441 for being “too rich” insofar that it offers large payouts to homeowners for making the switch to solar. Bill A441, which the New Jersey Assembly Telecommunications and Utilities Committee voted in favor of this January, offers up to 15% reimbursement on residential solar arrays to homeowners in certain areas of the state. The bill designates five strategic zones in New Jersey that would benefit from reduced grid congestion if more people installed solar panels on their roof. “Families choosing to use solar panels are cutting energy costs, and most importantly, moving the state toward a greener, more environmentally responsible future,’’ the NJSpotLight quoted Assemblyman Tim Eustace (D-Bergen), the bill’s sponsor. In the past, electrical congestion in New Jersey ended up costing consumers up to $1 billion. If the bill passes, it will seek to reduce such congestion and forgo having foot New Jersey constituents with the bill of installing more power-lines by encouraging enough people in the congested areas to switch to...

$15 Million Minnesota Solar incentive program reopens for the start of the new year

Winter. A drab time of year for many of the midwestern states–and perfect time to let in more sunshine wherever the chance arrives. For the fourth year running, now, Minnesota has opened the window for solar incentive applications, which will give residents up to 25 percent back of installed costs on proposed solar projects from Jan 1 to Feb 28, 2017 The Made in Minnesota Solar Incentive Program, administered by the Minnesota Commerce Department, helps fund new solar and thermal systems for the state’s residents, busineses and communities. The program, which first began in 2013, has so far supported nearly 1,100 solar projects according to the state’s website and has a budget of $15 million for the course of its 10 years. The program is expected to last until 2023, with the goal to get the state’s investor-owned utility companies to obtain 1.5% of its power from renewables by 2020 and 10% by 2030. Applicants for the generous incentive offers to cover up to a quarter of a photovoltaic (PV) project’s installment costs, are randomly selected and will receive payments for 10 years based on the system’s electricity production. For owners of solar thermal systems, the program offers a one time rebate up to a 25 percent of the installed cost. Minnesota expects the program to help fund up to 4,000 solar installations over the program’s 10 year lifespan. The incentive program is available to state residents and businesses who install systems and/or collectors that are certified as manufactured in Minnesota. If you’d like to find a system that meets the state’s incentive requirements you can visit the state’s website  to find out more or contact GoGreenSolar via email or call (888) 338-0183....
