Factual Information

~Solar Panels saves electrical energy and uses electromagnetic energy from the suns rays.

~Solar Panels are really expensive, but the electrical bills for the whole years cost more than the solar panels.

~Solar Panels are a great alternative for electricity.

~We found a 265-Watt Mono-Crystilline Solar Panel (2-Pack). It costs $769.00 for the 2 pack. We think this is a great deal because the total cost is $404,994.00 and it really helps that the solar panels come in 2-Packs.

~We will ask for grants from Coppellisd.

~SolarCity is going to install our solar panels because the company is specifically made for solar panels.

How Solar Energy Panels Work

The cost

  • It will cost a lot for the panels but it will take some money off of your electricity bill.
  • The average of the electricity bill of this school is $107,401.23 dollars for the year of 2013 to 2014.
  • The cost of 769 solar panels is $404,494 dollars, yes it cost a lot but it will be saving about $157,365.12 dollars.

Pros and Cons

We picked solar panels because we are spending way too much money every month! Solar panels are beneficial for our school because we will use less electricity and energy. I think it will be worth getting solar panel installed because it will not hurt our school and waste energy.


Pros:

  • renewable
  • can last up to 40 years
  • environmental friendly
  • low maintenance
Cons:

  • space is needed
  • the solar panels are expensive
