Solar After Sunset: How Much You Can Save Using Solar in Prescott Valley

Apr 17, 2023 | Energy Efficiency, iON

Solar power is a rapidly growing industry, with more and more people choosing to harness the power of the sun to meet their energy needs. Solar offers us a clean and renewable energy source that not only helps the environment but helps us save money on our energy bills. 

In Prescott Valley, Arizona, where the sun shines more than 300 days a year, solar energy is abundant and it’s a no-brainer to harness all this energy to fuel our homes. But is the technology there yet to make it worth it? We believe so – read on to find out just how much you can save and how practical solar power has become. 

 

How Much You Can Save with Solar in Prescott Valley 

Since we’re home builders, we’ll be focusing on the savings you can get from a new build home. If you’re looking for information on solar systems for usedhomes, there’s plenty of information available online, but unfortunately older homes just can’t compare to the standards Mandalay Homes can due to our unique energy-efficient build quality.

Our iON series homes can dramatically reduce energy consumption – reducing a home’s energy demand by 60-70% on homes built just 5 years ago, or even up to 90% for our iON ZERO homes, which represent the future of energy efficiency. Even without energy storage solutions, our iON homes represent serious savings for you and a brighter future for the environment. 

Unlike most builders, we “right size” the energy needs of every home we build, meaning every home has a bespoke solar panel system which provides the most benefits to the homeowner while avoiding the pitfalls of over production that causes grid instability in states like California. This means that we calculate exactly how many solar panels each individual home needs to perform optimall, rather than following most builders and simply installing a standard package of solar panels across all floorplans and elevations. Through our extensive research we know that to provide the best benefits for all we need to be conscious of how we outfit each home.

 

Solar Storage Keeps You Powered When The Sunsets

Solar power storage solutions are crucial if we’re going to harness the full potential of solar energy. Fortunately, our homes can utilise the added benefit from industry-leading storage technology which will store energy produced during the day and save it for use overnight. It’s technology like this that makes solar energy a game changer for the affordability of energy for homeowners. 

Using solar panels in Arizona is a no-brainer, but only the most energy-efficient homes (like our iON series homes) using industry-leading technology will see a dramatic change in how much they pay for their energy. 

 

The Future is Energy Efficient 

While solar energy can help any household save money, the most energy-efficient homes will see the most significant benefits. With a home that’s been built for energy efficiency from the ground up, everything in the home is designed to help keep you comfortable and keep your energy consumption to a minimum. 

That means the windows and doors, walls, foundation, filtration system, and more are designed to keep cool air in and warm air out, and vice versa. When it comes to energy consumption, older homes simply cannot compare. To find out more about our energy-efficient homes, click here.
