Why BE Solar?

FAQs

Why Solar?
Simply put, using the sun to generate electricity can save you 70-85% on your energy bills. Solar electricity systems have no moving parts and up to a 30 year warranty, providing you with a low risk investment that will save you money for decades.  BE Solar will help custom design and build the solar system that is right for you.

How It Saves You Money?
Most residential solar systems in Bermuda are directly connected to the grid, and any extra electricity you produce can spin your meter in reverse.  Depending on how much solar electricity you produce, and how much energy you use, you can reduce, eliminate, or even earn a credit on your Belco account. Credits are currently valued at the same rate at which electricity is charged, which is a common method of compensation sometimes referred to as ‘net metering’.

How It Works?
Solar electric (photovoltaic) panels convert sunlight directly into electricity. An inverter conditions this electricity into energy you can use in your home and sell back to the electrical grid.

System Lifetime?
Solar electricity generation systems have no moving parts, and are simple and reliable. A well installed system could last over 50 years and this is backed up by an industry-standard 25-30 year power output warranty. The first modern solar cell that was produced by Bell Laboratories in 1954 is still producing electricity today!

Proven Technology?
Tough enough to be the technology of choice to power machinery in the most remote locations, from communication satellites in outer-space to isolated communities back here on earth. Solar electric technology has steadily evolved over the past 70 years to produce a mature and reliable product that you can depend on to provide power for your home.

Maintenance?
Almost no effort is required for solar electricity generation systems, however a visual check of the solar panels, fastenings, and wiring and roof annually is a sensible precaution. BE Solar uses the highest quality SolarWorld panels made in the U.S.A.

System Size?
It is up to you to decide how large or small you want your system to be, and we will help you to determine the right solution that fits your needs. Remember you can always increase your system size by adding more panels in the future. Furthermore, we also provide a range of energy saving solutions that can help you save even more money by using less energy.

Is My Home Or Business Suitable?
