There's never been a better time to convert to solar!
Interest in solar energy today is growing rapidly.
More and more people are seeing the value of converting to solar power because it is a clean and environmentally sound energy source.
In addition to all the good that can be done for this planet, making the switch to solar power can also help you save money as a homeowner.
Once those panels are in place, you’re effectively free from ever-increasing electricity costs.
Not only will this help take some of the financial strain off your shoulders, but there’s also the feeling of pride that comes with your new-found renewable energy independence.
Here are 6 reasons why converting your home to solar is the best way to go:
If you’re looking to sell your home, being set up for solar energy is a smart investment for homeowners.
In fact, a study done by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory found that homes equipped for solar power, on average, sold for around 17% more than homes without solar panels on the roof. Homes running on solar energy also sold 20% faster than those running on electricity.
No matter what happens with electricity costs, going green with solar means that you’re always locked into an energy supply at a fixed rate.
Whenever your home is generating more power than you need, your meter will begin running backward. When that happens, the utility company in your area will credit you for the power you’re producing. You can then use this excess electricity during evening hours without running up a bill. This is a grid-tied solar system.
What a way to turn the tables!
Since there are no moving parts on solar panels, they’re very durable. There’s really very little to maintain.
Rain will wash off any dust that collects on the panel’s surface, and even if you’re in the desert where it never rains, spraying the panels down once a year should be all that’s required to keep them producing like new. To keep solar panels functioning optimally they should be 100% clean, but even when they are really dirty they only lose about 5-7% of their efficiency.
Solar panels are a clean and reliable source of energy, and this eco-friendly solution doesn’t place unnecessary strain on the planet’s resources. There are no air pollutants, toxic run-off, or other issues associated with running things on solar power.
It feels good to be a leader, especially in an environmentally friendly way where you can be sure you’re doing something good for the future of our planet.
Adopting clean energy sources early on is a crucial part of the process for anyone who wants to adopt a greener lifestyle.
Whether you decide to buy or lease solar panels, the return on investment is obvious.
