With lots of sunshine, the Central Valley of California is a great place to utilize solar energy. Brower Mechanical serves Sacramento, Elk Grove, Galt, Folsom, El Dorado Hills, Roseville, Rocklin, Auburn, Davis, Yuba City and Granite Bay, and we are experts in lowering energy bills with free solar energy.

Ideal Conditions for Home Solar

Your property is well-suited for solar energy if:

  • Your home has minimal solar shading from trees or buildings
  • There is space for solar panels, ideally facing south
  • You want to use a clean source of energy

Solar PV, Water Heating & Pool Heating

As expert solar installers across the Sacramento area, we will assess your property and determine the best use of free solar energy. Because we install three different types of solar systems, we can help determine which will save the most money.

Our approach is to help you use less energy first, then install the right size solar system for your needs.

Backup Power 

In 2019, many of us felt the impacts of the Public Safety Power Shutoffs leaving many homeowners without power for hours and up to days. Brower Mechanical can help keep your power on with both whole home standby generators and solar battery options so you can be prepared for the next power outage.  

Solar Tax Credit for Affordable Home Solar

Once your home is energy efficient and can truly benefit from a solar installation, our professional team can make that happen. In order to make your project affordable so that you see an even quicker return on investment, you should take advantage of the available federal tax credit. The solar tax credit has been extended!

In 2021, you can get a 26% tax credit of your solar photovoltaic or solar water heating system cost back through your tax return. In 2023, that credit will drop to 22%, and then in 2024, it will be completely eliminated for homeowners but remain at 10% for commercial solar projects. 

Go Small Solar with Brower

As your local experts, we can help you make your home energy efficient and prepare it for solar. When you’ve reduced your home’s energy use, we can install a solar PV electric, solar water heating, or solar pool heating system to help you further reduce or eliminate your bills and continue to decrease your impact on the environment.

These reliable systems generate electricity for your home or business. With net metering, your electric utility will actually compensate you for excess power supplied to the grid. Now prices are lower than ever, making it a great time to install a solar system. Since 1998, the cost of a photovoltaic solar system has fallen every year, according to the National Renewable Energy Laboratory.

Residential Solar Water Heating

Did you know that water heating typically accounts for 15% to 25% of total household energy use, according to the Department of Energy? Our expert technicians install solar water heating systems that efficiently heat water from the sun. We use high-quality panels and components to provide the most reliable system available.

Solar Pool Heating | Brower Mechanical

Do you want to extend your pool season and extensively reduce your pool-heating costs? Our experienced technicians can assess your property and recommend the solar pool heater for the application.
