-Reduce your carbon footprint without changing any habits – PROTECT THE ENVIRONMENT
Solar is one of the greatest ways to reduce your carbon footprint. This all happens without any change in your daily routines. A typical residential solar panel system will eliminate 10-15 tons of carbon emissions each year. THAT IS 3 TIMES MORE EFFECTIVE AT REDUCING YOUR CARBON FOOTPRINT THAN AN ELECTRIC CAR! Now that is sexy!
-Increase your property value
Hands down, proven by study after study, solar increases your property values! Think about it, a house with a reduced or eliminated electric expense! Who does not want to reduce an expense on a home they are investing in?
-Drastically reduce or even eliminate your electric bills
You now become part of the solution and are producing your own POWER. With a solar panel system, you’ll generate free power for your system’s entire 35-40 year lifecycle
-Stop allowing the utility company to raise your rates
Insulate yourself from allowing the utility company to raise your rates!!! They do it often, to the tune of 3% per year in the U.S.A over the last 10 years. That means you are now paying 30% more per year in energy costs. Let’s stop this madness!
-Make an investment that pays you from the first MINUTE the system is turned on
From the day you decided to own a home, you decided to have an electric bill FOREVER! What if you could take this same money you are spending already and invest it monthly?
Solar Panels are not an expense! Your electric bill is. A solar system on your home is one of the best ways to invest, with returns rivaling those of more traditional investments like stocks and bonds. And the returns are guaranteed as long as we still have a Sun blazing overhead!
-Help stimulate your local economies job growth
Solar is now one of the fastest growing professions in the United States. It is outpacing most all industries for local job growth and all residential systems are installed by local installers that immediately support that local community.
-Boost U.S. energy independence
The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a key component of achieving energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capacity to generate electricity from the sun, we can also insulate our country from price fluctuations in global energy markets.
What are the financial benefits of solar energy?
When you install a solar energy system on your property, you save money on your electricity bills and protect yourself against rising electricity rates in the future. How much you can save depends on the utility rates and solar policies in your area, but going solar is a smart investment regardless of where you live.
What are the environmental benefits of solar energy?
Solar power, like other renewable energy resources, has many environmental and health benefits. Going solar reduces greenhouse gas emissions, which contribute to climate change, and also results in fewer air pollutants like sulfur dioxide and particulate matter, which can cause health problems.
How does solar impact my property values?
Studies have shown that homes with solar energy systems sell for more than homes without them. However, your property value will only increase if you own, rather than lease, your solar panel system. In most parts of the country, going solar will actually increase your property value more than a kitchen renovation.
How much will solar panel maintenance cost?
Solar panel systems are made of durable tempered glass and require little to no maintenance for the 25 to 35 years that they will generate power. In most cases, you don’t even need to clean your solar panels regularly. If something does happen, most equipment manufacturers include warranties, although warranty terms depend on the company.
What solar energy rebates and incentives are available?
Solar rebates and incentives vary depending on where you live. The most significant is the 26 percent federal investment tax credit (ITC), which allows you to deduct 26 percent of the cost of your solar energy system from your taxes. Some states offer additional tax credits, and certain municipalities and utilities also offer cash rebates or other incentives.
Is my roof suitable for solar panels?
Southerly-facing roofs with little to no shade and enough space to fit a solar panel system are ideal for installing solar. However, in many cases there are workarounds if your home doesn’t have the ideal solar roof.
How do solar photovoltaic (PV) panels work?
Solar panels absorb the sun’s energy throughout the day and convert it into direct current (DC) electricity. Most homes and businesses run on alternating current (AC) electricity, so the DC electricity is then passed through an inverter to convert it to usable AC electricity. At that point, you either use the electricity in your house or send it back to the electric grid.
