Is Solar Energy Reliable Enough for My Home or Business?

Is Solar Energy Reliable Enough for My Home or Business?

Blog
How reliable is solar energy? It's an important question for people considering the switch to solar because we live in a fast-paced, energy-dependent world. When it comes to your home or business, there is no time for power outages or lack of available power. Although it's a broad one, there are two main ways to look at this question – "resource reliability" and "production reliability". Resource reliability is about the availability of the energy source (sunshine) and its ability to regularly reach your panels. Production reliability is more about the ability to consistently turn that sunshine into usable electricity. This production mainly depends on the dependability of the solar system hardware (panels, inverters, wiring), as well as the quality of the solar energy installation. Of course, there must be a…

5 Factors that Affect Your Total Solar Panel Installation Cost

5 Factors that Affect Your Total Solar Panel Installation Cost

Blog
"How much does solar panel installation cost?" It's a question we hear all the time. The short answer is that it varies. There is no one size fits all approach to solar installation. The cost of your solar project will vary based on factors like: How many solar panels do you need to meet your energy/financial goals? Would you like your panels on a roof or on the ground? What type/brand of panels and inverters would you like? Do you want any addon options such as energy storage batteries or an electric vehicle charging station? What solar incentives (rebates, tax credits, renewable energy credits) are you eligible for? If you aren't sure about the answer to any or all of these questions, don't worry. Installing a solar energy system seems…

20 Examples of Ground Mount Solar Installation

20 Examples of Ground Mount Solar Installation

Blog
Ground mount solar differs from rooftop solar in a few key ways. A few weeks ago we shared examples of rooftop solar installations completed by MOXIE. But sometimes, whether it's tree shading or simply lack of physical space, rooftop solar isn't able to achieve your goals for installing solar. The benefits of ground-mounted solar include greater control over production (our site surveying team uses a variety of tools to determine the most sun-kissed part of your property) and of course, you can build much larger arrays on the ground than you can on most roofs. Keep in mind that ground-mounted arrays often cost more than rooftop arrays due to the extra mounting hardware they require. Our team works with you to understand your situation and provide you with a variety…

Why Install Solar Panels?

Why Install Solar Panels?

5 Goals You Can Achieve by Going Solar Are you considering installing solar panels? There are many great reasons to do it. However, the best reason for one person may not be the same reason for you. This variance is why no two MOXIE solar systems are built the same. Each is custom-designed by our in-house solar engineers to achieve your unique goal(s) based on your unique location. Identifying your goals will help you get the most out of your system while also ensuring you don't over-invest. Think of it as the classic story of Goldilocks and the Three Bears. A system that's too weak, even slightly, won't reach your energy production goals. One that is too strong could unnecessarily hinder the ability to recoup your investment (most systems reach…

12 Excellent Examples of Solar Panels for Barns

It doesn't get much more American than solar panels on barn roofs For over a decade, MOXIE has been helping farmers and rural landowners install solar power systems on their barns and workshop buildings. In fact, some of the first solar installs MOXIE ever did were for farmers in Eastern Iowa. Their positive feedback and real energy-saving results are what have motivated us to continually educate rural landowners on the benefits of installing solar. Today, we'
