When it comes to solar energy, it doesn’t have to be complicated, according to Troy Bevilacqua, SunPower, New Homes Senior Account Manager, Northern California.
“If you’ve been looking at a solar system for your home, business or school, you’ve probably heard some unfamiliar industry jargon. Fear not the words. We simplify your solar experience with our own A-to-Z glossary,” Troy says.
It’s true – with terms like “ground-mount solar” and “alternative energy,” it’s easy to see how even the savviest, most conscientious earth supporters could get confused.
For example, a module? That’s just another name to describe a solar panel. Solar design is simply the layout and orientation of the solar panels for optimum performance. Zero net energy identifies homes that generate as much energy as they consume. And efficiency refers to the amount of light captured and converted into usable electricity.
Not so hard, right?
In this same way, TRI Pointe Homes has committed to a theme of renewal through its LivingSmart® initiative that makes the solar power transition an easy one.
