Over the past several years, solar energy systems have become more affordable and more technologically advanced. As such, there’s never been a better time to switch your home or business to solar power. A residential solar system is a big investment, but here are some reasons why you should take the plunge and make the switch today!
1. Completely Eliminate or Substantially Reduce Your Electric Bill
As solar technology reaches peak efficiency, solar panel prices have stabilized at their lowest levels ever. With an average payback time of 8-10 years, you will enjoy long-term savings from decades of self-generated electricity.
2. Shrink Your Carbon Footprint
Fossil fuel-based power plants release tons of harmful greenhouse gasses, including CO2, into the atmosphere. Solar power is clean, sustainable, and eco-friendly energy that takes advantage of the sun’s abundant energy supply and drastically reduces your carbon footprint.
3. Enjoy a Large Return on Investment
A smart solar system will provide your family with clean power and energy savings for 25 years or more. That makes solar an investment, not an expense. Once your initial costs are recouped, the ROI of your system begins to increase, making solar one of the most economical home improvements you can make. In fact, there are tons of additional incentives to help lower the cost of your initial investment.
4. Protect Your Family from Rising Energy Costs
One step closer to energy independence. A home solar system helps stabilize your electricity costs for 25 years or more. A battery storage system helps maximize your investment even more by collecting and storing your excess power for use during peak rate periods and outages.
5. Increase Your Property Value
Installing solar panels put you ahead of the technology curve, making your home one of the most energy-efficient on the market. Not only will your home’s value increase, but many realtors also report solar-powered homes to sell faster.
