Peak Solar's new online chat feature allows potential consumers to chat with company representatives and explore questions such as how DIY solar can generate electricity at a low cost and be competitive with power generated by the utility companies.
Photovoltaic solar power is emerging as a clear leader in the choice of low cost energy alternatives. According to a recent study by the Institute of Local Self-Reliance, residents in many areas are already generating cheaper electricity than the power companies. This savings applies to most states, and excludes additional savings from federal and state subsidies.
The report was based on the cost per kilowatt of electricity generated by averaging the current price of solar installation and panel maintenance over 25 years. This was in turn compared to the current utility rates from over 3100 electrical zones across the United States. The results showed that, contrary to popular myth, the United States has already reached grid parity for residents with rooftop solar panels in many regions.
Stanford University researchers concur with the above findings, adding that even commercial photovoltaic systems have reached a point where it is more economical than buying electricity from the grid. Peak Solar further reduces the cost of photovoltaic systems by offering DIY solar kits, which further reduces installation expenses. Add in the currently available incentives, and the savings multiplies.

This online feature allows individuals to ask questions and receive an instant response from its company representatives.
