DJH Solar Projects Produce Results

News on August 28th, 2012 Comments Off on DJH Solar Projects Produce Results

As of today, August 28th 2012, DJH Construction’s photovoltaic installations have saved the environment from nearly 200,000 kg of CO2!!!

200,000 kg of CO2 would be similar to planting over 7,000 trees on the planet!

DJH Soars Past 300 Mega Watt Hours!!!

News on August 27th, 2012 Comments Off on DJH Soars Past 300 Mega Watt Hours!!!

As of today, August 27th, DJH Construction’s Solar PV projects have a combined total of over 305 mega-watt hours.

Just one megawatt is equal to one million watts or 106 watts, therefore DJH projects have produced over 305,000,000 watts of electricity.

 

A standard wind turbine most likely has a power capacity between 1 to 3 MegaWatts, which means all of the DJH projects could produce as much energy as 300 wind turbines.

 

Energy produced on a megawatt scale be seen in lightning strikes, server farms, data centers, and supercolliders.

DJH Construction Gets Involved!

News on August 22nd, 2012 Comments Off on DJH Construction Gets Involved!

On May 19th, 2012 DJH Construction made a substantial donation to a non-profit solar installation organization, GRID Alternatives. Each division of GRID Alternatives has an annual “Solarthon,” which is a massive solar installation/block party/fundraiser. The Inland Empire division for GRID Alternatives was hosting its first “Solarthon” and was seeking support from businesses in Southern California. DJH Construction understood that the event would have a tremendous impact on the community and made a considerable donation of equipment, money, tools, and man power for the event. Students from the University of Redlands USGBC chapter were touched by DJH Construction’s President, Don Harris’ willingness to guide and teach them through the installation process.

How Arizona Residents Can Tap Into Local, State and Federal Incentives To Go Solar

News on June 16th, 2011 Comments Off on How Arizona Residents Can Tap Into Local, State and Federal Incentives To Go Solar

DJH Construction, Inc., a leading integrator of solar electric power systems announced the completion of a residential photovoltaic installation located in Fort Mojave, Arizona. This 5.06 kW system was installed on the residence of Larry Morse. The solar project was completed from beginning to end in two and a half weeks. This includes: contract signing, permitting, utility rebate reservation, final inspection, and commissioning/start-up. The actual installation itself was completed in two days after materials delivery.

Current incentives available to Fort Mojave residents include: a Utility Rebate, State Tax Credit, and Federal Tax Credit. Mohave Electric Cooperative customers are able to take advantage of a $3.00/watt utility rebate with a $12,000 maximum. This means that clients like Morse are able to offset the cost of installation by the amount of the rebate. In addition to the rebate, Morse will be able to take advantage of a $1,000 Arizona Tax Credit and 30% Federal Tax Credit. The basis for the tax credits is calculated from the net cost of the installed system, the cost after deducting the rebate amount.

The 5.06 kW photovoltaic system ties together a total of 22 Sharp photovoltaic panels onto 900 square feet of roof space. The estimated reduction in green house gas emissions from this system is estimated to be 141 tons of CO2 over the 25+ years. This reduction in green house gas emissions is equivalent to planting 5,648 trees or driving 478,644 miles in a small car.

“The Morse’s solar project is another step in DJH Construction, Inc.’s long-term commitment to advance the delivery of renewable energy to the grid. We are grateful to play an active role in growing this nascent market in Fort Mojave and surrounding counties,” said Don Harris, president of DJH Construction, Inc.

Attention Business Owners – 30% Solar Grant Now Available

News on June 16th, 2011 Comments Off on Attention Business Owners – 30% Solar Grant Now Available

The Department of the Treasury has recently made available the instructions to apply for the Renewable Energy Grant. This grant is part of the Section 1603 of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Tax Act of 2009. It authorizes the US Department of the Treasury to make payments in the form of a cash grant to commercial, agricultural, and industrial properties that install a qualified renewable energy system such as a solar photovoltaic system.

Where previously the 30% Investment Tax Credit (ITC) allowed solar investors to reduce their tax liability by the amount of the tax credit, Section 1603 now allows investors the option to access a cash grant instead. This is advantageous to those who are looking to invest in solar but do not have the tax liability to take advantage of the 30% tax credit. Although the tax credit can be carried forward into the subsequent tax year, the full benefit of the 30% tax credit cannot be realized until taxes are filed. The grant provides a great alternative to the ITC. The solar grant allows investors to receive a cash grant within 60 days or less of the grant application or the date the solar system is placed in service, whichever is later.

If you are interested in taking advantage of the 30% grant, below is a list of eligibility and provisions for Section 1603:

o Only tax-paying entities are eligible for this grant.
o Applicable Sectors: Commercial, Industrial, Agricultural
o Grants are available to “eligible property* placed in service in 2009 or 2010
o Eligible solar-energy property includes equipment that uses solar energy to generate electricity (photovoltaics), to heat or cool (or provide hot water for use in) a structure, or to provide solar process heat. Passive solar systems and solar pool-heating systems are not eligible. Hybrid solar-lighting systems, which use solar energy to illuminate the inside of a structure using fiber-optic distributed sunlight, are eligible.
o Grant applications must be submitted by October 1, 2011
o The Treasury will make Section 1603 payments to qualified applicants equal to 30% of the basis of the solar photovoltaic property – this includes solar equipment, installation, and freight.

Solar Power is More Affordable Than Ever Before

News on June 16th, 2011 Comments Off on Solar Power is More Affordable Than Ever Before

If you have been looking into going solar but think it is too expensive, you may be able to go green sooner than you think.

Anyone who has looked into going solar or wants to go solar can now benefit from the decrease in solar panel prices and the increase in federal and state incentives that subsidize solar. According to investment bank analysts at Piper Jaffray, the price of panels have dropped nearly 40 percent compared to last year. What is driving the cost down? Simple supply and demand as well as the decreasing cost of raw materials.

Although solar demand has increased in the United States due to federal and state incentives, overall worldwide demand has decreased. The decrease in demand is in large effect from the decreasing solar subsidies in European countries, making the installation of solar more cost-prohibitive with a longer payback period. According to Emerging Energy Research, a consulting firm, solar photovoltaic installations in Europe are forecasted to fall by nearly 26 percent compared to last year.

The decreasing cost and availability of polysilicon (the key component to most types of manufactured solar) has also contributed to the decrease in solar panel costs. More overseas companies, especially in China have become involved in the direct manufacturing of polysilicon which has decreased the overall cost of manufacturing the panel. Consumers can also benefit from the technological advances in the solar industry that have lead to increased efficiency in the solar modules manufactured today. This means fewer panels with greater energy output.

In addition to the decreasing cost of panels, consumers can also take advantage of available federal and state solar rebates, credits, and grants to further decrease the net cost of their solar system.
