A Better Way to Go Solar!

Home Solar is Not a New Thing

Thomas Edison a renowned inventor and entrepreneur, expressed forward-thinking views on solar energy. He famously said, “I’d put my money on the sun and solar energy. What a source of power! I hope we don’t have to wait until oil and coal run out before we tackle that.” Edison believed in harnessing nature’s inexhaustible sources, of energy—sun, wind, and tide—to benefit humankind. Thomas Edison was a brilliant man who like all great inventors could see far beyond his mortality. Edison knew there were problems with using limited resources such as oil, coal, and natural gas versus renewable energy resources. In all of Edison’s brilliance, he knew the technology needed was in the distant future. Edison’s vision is rapidly becoming our world in 2024, because of technology that didn’t exist then does now.

One Thing Stood in the Way of Solar Energy for Over 100 Years

In the United States, the dawn of electrification was the beginning of illuminating homes in the late 19th century. A pivotal moment in 1878 was when Thomas Edison, a prolific inventor installed the first private electric system in his residence. Fast forward to September 1882, when a house in Appleton, Wisconsin, became the first American home to be powered by hydroelectricity using what is known as “direct current (DC)” system developed by Edison.

Solar Energy Became an Afterthought in the 20th Century

In the mid-1900s the problem for renewable energy wasn’t scalable because the cost was prohibitive. The battery technology was quite primitive in Edison’s era. Hence, Edison had no choice but to give way to Nikola Tesla and George Westinghouse’s plan to bring affordable electricity to American homes and businesses.  A/C (Alternating Current) was Nikola Tesla’s invention, and he surrendered the patents to Westinghouse. Nikola Tesla surrendered his patents because he believed they were too important for humanity’s progress. Thomas Edison knew renewable energy was too expensive to go mainstream. The battery technology to store power produced from renewable energy sources didn’t exist.

Solar Energy Has Become a Reality in the 21st Century

The Best Advancements in Solar Energy are Backup Battery Storage

Although home solar was another option for energy in the 1900’s there were too many competing forces. The automobile was in its golden age, A/C Electricity powered homes and businesses, and plane travel was invented leaving solar energy as an afterthought. 

What changed so drastically that solar energy is suddenly affordable today? Title XIII Smart Grid made what is known as net metering possible. Net-metering allows homeowners to store the power produced from solar on the grid. Along with the inception of the Smart Grid, we now have battery technology that can store enough energy to power an entire home.

TITLE XIII—SMART GRID
The Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007 (EISA)
Was the Kickoff of The Solar Revolution in America

Title XIII Smart Grid legislates policy for the modernization of the electricity grid for efficiency, reliability, and security. This legislation allows renewable energy that’s produced to be stored on the grid, making solar energy affordable for homeowners. Title XIII funded what is known as the “Smart Grid” which uses computer technology to digitize America’s grid and bring all the energy produced onto the grid where it’s managed in a centralized location. The solar energy boom in America isn’t because of global warming or climate change; It’s the exponential technological growth in various sectors that solar energy is a reality in 2024.
