The Benefits of Solar Energy
More Americans than ever before are opting to switch to sustainable, renewable, plentiful solar energy. If you’re still on the fence, here is what you need to know about the many benefits of this natural power source.
1. Solar energy is affordable.
One of the biggest benefits of solar power is its affordability. You will enjoy reduced monthly power bills when you go solar, but how much you save will depend on several factors, including:
The size of your system
The size and angle of your roof
The amount of sunlight your system gets each day
Your electricity consumption
Local electricity rates
The price of solar energy has decreased by nearly 50 percent in the last few years, which means that now is a great time to invest in a new solar system, lower your monthly utility bills, and boost the value of your home.
2. There are no upfront costs.
Any major upgrade to your home will often come with a hefty price tag, but with solar energy, you can opt to switch with no extra costs upfront. We offer a variety of financing options that can eliminate your upfront costs and keep your monthly costs low and affordable. Your system will pay for itself over time, meaning a solar system will put money back in your pocket for years to come.
3. You can enjoy several tax incentives.
We all are used to paying high electric bills, but with solar power, we can make those bills a thing of the past. Even better, state and federal tax incentives can make the installation process more appealing and financially feasible. Local utility companies may offer additional rebates as well.
4. Solar is renewable energy!
Solar power is a clean, renewable energy source. Most states have ample solar resources, but here in Pennsylvania, we have more than abundant solar resources and can generate enough solar power to become energy independent and get off the grid, if that’s your goal. Each kilowatt hour of solar energy that you produce reduces CO2 emissions and other greenhouse gasses and pollutants while significantly reducing water consumption.
