Benefits of Solar Panels



Solar energy is a clean, green source of energy. Solar panels are self-sufficient and installing solar panels on your roof is a safe and easy path to contribute to a sustainable community. Starting at your home is the first step to show your care about our environment. Get started today!


Learn the benefits:

Energy Resilience:

Solar panels provide resiliency by ensuring you have electricity at your house even when the grid cannot generate power.


Make Money, Save Money:

Your family can easily protect yourselves against unpredictable increases in electricity bill. The sun will never increase its prices and it gives you energy security.


The Environment:

Investing in a solar array installation will reduce the carbon footprint of your home and advance the clean energy economy.


Sustainability Ambassadors, in partnership with Sphere Solar Energy, is leading a neighbor-to-neighbor campaign to add solar panels to homes. Sphere Solar Energy will provide 5% off every home that goes solar as coordinated by Sustainability Ambassadors, with an additional 5% off the purchase of solar panels made in Washington State. For every 30 homes that go solar, Sphere Solar Energy will donate a solar project to a community in the developing world.

The Science Behind Solar Panels:

Solar panels allow particles of light, called photons, to knock electrons free from atoms, generating a flow of electricity. This electric field forces drifting electrons to flow toward the conductive metal plates lining the cell.

Get Started:

1) The PVWATTS Calculator estimates the energy production and cost of energy of grid-connected photovoltaic (PV) energy systems throughout the world. It allows homeowners, small building owners, installers, and manufacturers to easily develop estimates of the performance of potential PV installations. You have the option to input your address, draw your system, find your yearly electricity bill value, and how much energy you will make each month.


2) With Sustainability Ambassadors, you save 42-49% off of your solar panel installation.
