Well, the winter is done and the high solar season is approaching fast. AQB Air is still one of the biggest solar panels contractors in the Los Angeles and Ventura County areas. Our site – www.AQBAir.com – is now enriched with new information related to solar energy and solar panels. The biggest indicator of high demand is, if nothing else, the high volume of new visitors to our site, growing every day, coming from all parts of SoCal.
Solar Panels and Solar Energy trends in 2012
Trend 1: Increased demand. With or without Government’s help and incentives, the demand for clean, reliable solar energy is constantly growing.
Trend 2: Prices are dropping. With few solar panel giants going under, the prices of solar panels have significantly dropped, attracting more consumers. However, due to (usually inferior) cheaper imported panels, we believe that the prices of solar panels are going to stay at a certain level after a slow drop.
Trend 3: Sustainability. Solar power related projects jumped from 1.8GW to 3GW at the beginning of 2012, ensuring steady growth

Solar is a choice with many benefits
Homeowners across the globe are seeing the solar light. The reasons vary for each person, though they mainly come down to the following:
Solar-energy systems allow you to capture free sunlight and convert it into usable power in your home.
Solar energy can be used to heat and cool your home, but it has almost no impact on the global climate. By comparison, electricity generated by power plants produces carbon dioxide emissions that scientists say pose serious threats to the environment.
It’s infinitely renewable.
While nonrenewable energy sources like oil, gas and coal are becoming increasingly scarce, the sun’s energy is limitless. Wherever sunlight shines, electricity can be generated.
It can reduce your utility costs.
Having a system that creates solar energy means you use less electricity from your utility company, and that can contribute to lower heating and cooling costs. This is significant, especially when you consider 56% of energy use in a typical U.S. home comes from heating and cooling*.
It comes with incentives.
The U.S. federal government and some states provide tax credits for renewable-energy systems. Depending on where you live, you may also be eligible for incentives through your utility company.
It increases your energy self-reliance.
The more sunlight harnessed by the system, the less electricity you need from your utility supplier.
It can also increase your home’s value.
An investment in a solar-energy system may improve the value of your home, thanks to its ability to lower the cost of heating and cooling. Surveys conducted by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development have shown that home values rise an average of $20 for every $1 reduction in annual utility bills.
It’s extremely reliable.
The sun has been around for billions of years and is likely to burn on for billions more to come. And when you consider how a trusted name like Lennox is putting it to economical use in the home, it’s easy to see solar energy’s future is bright.
