The latest solar technology has become a boon to homeowners, and seco is just one of the companies that has jumped on the bandwagon.
Seco Energy announced Wednesday that it will install solar panels on a new home, adding to its efforts to bring solar energy to homes in a way that is not only energy efficient, but also energy-efficient for the environment.
The company, which has been working with homeowners for several years, said it plans to install up to six panels, each about six feet in diameter, on a 5,800-square-foot home on the west side of downtown Los Angeles.
The panels will have a capacity of up to 1,000 kilowatts, and are expected to be installed in 2019.
The company will also be using energy-saving technology, such as using a combination of solar and wind power, to power its photovoltaic panels.
The solar panels will be powered by a single-phase battery system, which will produce about 200 kilowatt-hours of energy per month, the company said.
The panel installation is the latest example of secos efforts to help homeowners save money on solar panels.
In June, the city of Long Beach installed a solar-powered home-improvement center on the edge of its downtown park that will allow homeowners to get a 30 percent discount on energy costs.
Secos plans to sell the panels at a later date.
The solar panels are expected make up about $200,000 worth of the total $1.6 million cost of the solar installation, said Kevin D. Ollis, seco’s vice president of corporate communications.
Solar power has also been used to help pay for the construction of the city’s largest solar project, a solar farm that will eventually generate enough power to power about 500 homes and office buildings.
The project will be the largest solar farm in the United States, and will be built near the Santa Ana River in Orange County.
The project, which was initially expected to take 10 years to complete, was delayed several times over the years because of cost overruns, but eventually completed in 2014.
The city expects the project to generate about $7 million a year for its residents and businesses, and about $10 million for the city, according to the Long Beach City Council.
The latest solar project has attracted a lot of attention, and it may be the first time the solar energy has been used on a roof.
The panel installation will be a new type of energy-saver for homeowners.
“The idea behind it is to bring the energy of the sun into the home, and also make it as energy-neutral as possible,” Darryl Johnson, a spokesman for seco, said in a statement.
The panels will not be powered with solar energy itself, but rather will be solar energy combined with solar thermal, a technology seco has been testing.
Solar thermal has been shown to generate energy at a much lower cost than solar energy alone, and is the cheapest form of energy storage technology available.
The cost of solar thermal is about $2.25 per kilowatthour, compared with $6.95 per kilawatt-hour for solar power alone, according the company.
Secos customers can also choose to use seco solar panels in conjunction with energy-efficiency measures like installing a heat sink or a water filter.
The heat sink, which seco says is a combination between a fan and an automatic water pump, will provide cooling and reduce the amount of water that needs to be pumped from the roof.
The water filter will be installed on the underside of the panel, where the solar thermal energy will be generated, so that it can be easily removed if the homeowner decides to move away from the solar panels, or if the panels need to be replaced.
The water filter is expected to save the homeowner about $3,000 per year, according seco.
Seco also said it will use its solar energy for energy-generating purposes, such a when it’s needed to maintain a home’s air conditioning system.
The residential solar energy can also be used for other things, such building solar panels or a heat pump.
SecorSolar, a company that secos competitors Sunrun and SolarCity, said Wednesday that the company has installed solar panels that generate up to 3.6 megawatts of energy for its customers, enough to power approximately 1,300 homes.
The energy-drain features can be installed without a home.
The energy-harvesting technology secorSolar SolarCity said it has installed a system that will use energy from the sun to turn water into steam for the building’s heat pump and water-heating system.
That technology uses a special form of solar energy that secor said has a total of 2.3 kilowats of energy.
The companies said that they’re currently working with other companies to develop similar systems that can be used on rooftops.
