Harnessing the energy of the sun to create power for our homes and businesses is an idea whose time has more than come. Installing a solar power system benefits not only the owner but those around as well. If you’ve never looked at all the advantages and benefits of solar power here are some ideas to consider:
- Increase property value
- Save money on utility bills
- Create clean energy
- Avoid energy rate hikes
Solar energy is clean and renewable. No harmful emissions or by-products are generated in the creation of solar energy. Although there are some emissions and by-products associated with the manufacture of the panels themselves, these are lower than what is produced by the use of fossil fuels and are recyclable. New technologies being developed will reduce these even further. As far as being renewable – the sun coming up is a daily occurrence.
If you are a homeowner you probably know that a solar power system can add resale value to your property if done correctly. When you own the system, there are no leases or purchasing agreements to transfer when you go to sell. With the tax credits and grants that are available the actual cost of the system is probably less than you think.
Even if you have to finance all or part of the cost of the system you know what your monthly payment will be. It won’t fluctuate with how much power you use or be subject to the yearly increase in electricity rates (currently about 4%). You will save money by being able to greatly reduce or completely eliminate your electric bills. It can also make money if you generate more power than you use. This excess power flows backwards through your meter generating a credit on your electric bill and supplying power for others to use.
Yes, it will produce less power during this time but still produce power.
Most panels carry a 25 year warranty and are designed to last 30+ years.
In most cases we are able to get your bill to between $10-$25/month. If you need to finance most homeowners are able to save 30-80%.
You will get your power from your utility at night. In most cases you are using your credits you banked during the day when you are producing more power than you are using.
There are many different types of panels out there. There is no reason to overpay for “higher end” panels as they all do the same thing, which is produce power. If you are able to get the power you need, there is no reason to pay extra for less panels.
Solar is the future of energy, and we offer protection against the ever-adjusting energy rates.
Solar gives you the freedom to plan your financial future, knowing that you will always have a source of energy.
