Our goal is to put you first so you can enjoy the benefits of going solar, saving you money and helping us save the planet.
Here are five advantages to going solar.
Low maintenance costs
Solar energy is affordable in so many ways.
Keeping your system up and running will not take a lot of effort or resources.
A big part of that is because solar panels have an incredible life expectancy and will not require regular maintenance work.
Aztec Solar products do not have moving parts so there’s little worry about wear and tear, as a result.
Ride technology wave
As evidenced by growing affordability, solar energy is constantly getting better and more efficient.
Quantum physics and nanotechnology will continue to improve and increase the amount of energy that can be harnessed.
This means that as a solar power user, you may one day be able to double or triple your electrical output and the associated savings.
Feel good about going green
Solar energy is the ultimate renewable power with far-reaching potential. It is boundless.
We see every solar application as a part of the bigger solution for a healthier planet and a brighter future.
With your buy in, we can continue to build on the momentum of creating a future of clean and affordable energy for everyone.
Reduce your utility bill
From pool heating, solar storage, in-house solar water heating to full-scale solar applications for the entire home or business, your investment in solar will reduce or eliminate the need for traditional utility.
The amount of savings will depend on the scope and size of the solar power application.
There’s even a possibility to store or maximize the excess energy your system produces.

The power of solar never ceases to amaze.
It gives Aztec Solar customers a chance at incredible savings on their utility bills, the flexibility of electricity on demand and the pride of going green.
Globally, solar and other green technologies remain affordable, too. It’s the most economically friendly form of energy in at least two-thirds of the world, according to a Bloomberg report.
In fact, solar costs fell by 4 percent, to about $50 a megawatt-hour in 2019, according to Bloomberg.
In the United States and in parts of Asia, the price is even lower. Costs for equipment are down and technologies have improved. All these factors are making it easier than ever to switch to solar.
Aztec Solar delivers energy solutions for both home and business use.

If you already benefit from a solar panel system at home or at your place of business, or you’ve been thinking about making the change, now’s an incredible time to do so.
We are excited to pass on savings directly to you for the short- and long-run while equipping your system with solar battery storage technology.
Living in California means we must prepare for major events, including an increasing number of wildfires. Planned power outages, as a result of this trend, are a new norm to help prevent a potential disaster. With solar battery storage, you can have power on demand. It works by storing excess energy that’s generated by your residential or commercial solar electricity system. The stored power is ready for use whenever it’s needed.
Combining solar electricity with solar battery storage leads to power on demand for unforeseen outages or peak energy times when it’s needed the most.
Please let us know if you would like to learn more about solar battery storage technology and other solar applications that save you money and give you peace of mind.
Our hearts go out to our friends and neighbors across the state and beyond who are facing health concerns and economic pain over the COVID-19 emergency.
A return to a semblance of normalcy is a matter of when not if. Yet, many unknowns remain as we continue to confront the challenges of this pandemic.
Later this year, there are fears that the flu season will further complicate matters if a second serge of COVID-19 infection occurs. We are all hoping for the best and will do our part to ensure our operations follow health and safety guidelines set forth by state and county officials.
California may also face a tumultuous wildfire season because the spread of COVID-19 threatens to make things more difficult for those on the wildfire frontlines. Already, the outbreak has postponed training exercises, controlled burns and inspections of high-fire risk properties in some parts of the state.
The American Red Cross is greatly concerned about the spread of the disease if communities are evacuated during a fire. Crowded evacuation centers may exponentially increase the risk of infection.
Unplanned power outages during peak wildfire season are inconvenient, stressful and draining on resources and time.
Unfortunately, these outages have become a new normal as the state finds new ways to prevent catastrophic wildfire events.
At Aztec Solar, we continually innovate and customize energy solutions to meet the needs of our residential and business customers.
Our solar products and technologies will be as vital as ever during the difficult months ahead as the wildfire season approaches.
Solar batteries are another tool we are proud to offer to our customers. They work by storing excess energy generated by solar electricity systems. The extra power is then made available when it’s needed the most. Solar batteries can kick in during peak energy times or unexpected power outages.
Solar batteries offer peace of mind when stress levels are high.
Be prepared for the unexpected, save money on your utility bill, and do something good for the planet.

Most business owners know that adding solar can help reduce their electricity costs. And, in general, most know that they can get a federal solar tax credit to the tune of 26 percent. These benefits alone make it worth it for business owners to go solar – especially with the heat of the Sacramento summer quickly approaching.
There are several other lesser-known benefits of adding solar power to your business, however. Here are a few of those.
Your solar system generates power from the sun during the day. When it collects more power than you use, that excess energy is sent back into the utility grid. Your utility company will then pay you for that extra production.
Boost in Property Value
Just like a residential property, adding owned solar panels to the property can increase the value. So, if you were to ever sell your property you could expect a higher return because of your solar system.
As solar technology has advanced, we now have the ability to store energy produced from solar panels through solar battery storage. What this means is that excess energy produced can be stored in a solar battery and that battery can be activated at night or during a power shutoff during a wildfire.
When you go solar it is quite an accomplishment, so much so you could consider a press release to let the local media know. Additionally, such a move to help the environment is something your employees will likely appreciate and it will give them pride in their employer.
Solar Requires Minimal Maintenance
Solar systems can last more than two decades (and sometimes longer). In general, they are also very low maintenance (though our top-notch installers are always ready to fix any issues).
Aztec Solar has more than four decades of experience installing solar and only solar in the Sacramento region. We have helped an endless number of companies make the switch and would be honored to help yours. Contact us today for a video consultation.
