Why Choose Solar For Your Home?
stop wasting money on electricity
Solar saves you more money every time the electric company raises rates.
If you’re like most people than your electric bill is a big part of your monthly expenses. The cost of a home solar system and the energy it creates could be less expensive than your monthly electric bill. Producing your own solar power reduces your electric bill and saves money.
In addition to reducing your electric bill, you’ll be protecting yourself against future increases in electricity costs. Nationally, electric companies raise rates an average of 6.5% per year. Between 2005 and 2015, electricity prices increased by 34%.
How much energy do you use now?
Solar power is an Unlimited source of energy
Everyday, the sun gives off far more energy than we need to power everything on earth. Solar power is critical to our clean energy future.
Low Cost Of Operation
Unlike other energy sources, the photovoltaic process that transforms sunlight into electricity doesn’t require any fuel and has no variable costs.
Solar panels produce electricity by transforming the energy from the sun to electricity. The flow of energy is continuous. The sun provides more than enough energy to meet the whole world’s energy needs, and unlike fossil fuels, it won’t run out anytime soon.
No harmful emissions are released into the air when electricity is produced by solar panels. The environmental impact of solar is far less than other power generation methods. Plus it eliminates three to four tons of carbon emissions every year.
Solar Earns A Great Return On Investment
A home solar system is an income producing asset.
The energy production value doesn’t decrease.
Compare solar to an investment product like a stock or bond.
Solar power is is capable of generating annual returns ranging from 10% to more than 30%. Once the average homeowner with solar power pays off their solar purchase they receive free electricity for the remainder of their solar system’s 25+ year lifespan.
Investing in solar will increase the value of your home and help sell it faster
According to recent studies by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) and the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, homes with solar systems sell faster and at a higher value than non-solar homes.
According to a recent Zillow study, homes with solar installed gain about 4.1% in value. At the median American home value of $226,000, that’s a premium of more than $9,000. Home buyers will pay more for homes with solar already installed.
“…solar panels are viewed as upgrades, just like a renovated kitchen or a finished basement, and home buyers across the country have been willing to pay a premium of about $15,000 for a home with an average-sized solar array. Additionally, there is evidence homes with solar panels sell faster than those without.” ~ US Dept of Energy
