Ft. Lauderdale, FL, March 16, 2013 –(PR.com)– A new advancement in solar power technology is enabling swimming pool owners to take their pumps off the electrical grid, save thousands of dollars – and help the environment.
Solar-powered pool pumps from Florida Solar Pump can help consumers save up to 30% on their monthly electric bill. Installing the energy conserving devices also may qualify customers for federal tax credits. At the same time, removing the traditional AC electric pool pump from power grid can prevent up to 11,500 pounds of pollutants from being released into the atmosphere each year, said Brian Ashworth, founder and president of Florida Solar Pumps, the Fort Lauderdale, Florida-based distributor of the solar pool pump.
“Depending on the size of your pool, the savings on the electric bill can top $85 a month or more,” Ashworth said. “You’re talking about up to a 15% return on investment each year, or almost $1,000 a year on your electric bill.”
With a two-year warranty (with an option of up to five years) and 10-year life expectancy, the maintenance-free DC brushless pump can add $15,000 to the value of the average home. The solar panels are sturdy and long-lasting – with a 20- to 25-year warranty. The pumps are strong enough to power automatic pool cleaners and circulate pool heater output.
Florida Solar Pump supplies product throughout the Bahamas and the Caribbean. This includes the Turks & Caicos, Jamaica, the Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico, the Cayman Islands, and the U.S. Virgin Island and the British Virgin Islands. In fact, those with homes, property or relatives in the Bahamas or Caribbean quickly can realize significant savings. With electricity topping 40 cents per watt, hotel, resorts and homes with pools throughout the islands are ideal for solar pool pumps, he said.
“Solar-powered pool pumps are the source for clean, green and cost-efficient energy,” Ashworth said. “Our environmentally-friendly solar panels and pumps circulate pool water from sun up to sun down for free – saving money every month and the climate every day.”
