Greatly Reduce Your Electric Bills
Electricity costs make up a large portion of your monthly expenses. With a solar panel system, you will generate free power for your system’s entire lifecycle (25+ years!)
Protect the Environment
Going solar is an excellent way to reduce your carbon footprint. A standard residential solar panel system will eliminate three to four tons of carbon emissions each year – the equivalent of planting over 100 trees annually.
Gives You Control and Freedom Over Electricity
The United States has the highest number of power-outage minutes of any developed nation. Over the last 15 years, U.S. households have experienced a steady increase in both frequency and duration of power outages.
Guard Against Rising Energy Costs
One of the most obvious benefits of solar panels is the ability to avoid increasing utility prices. Residential electricity prices have gone up approximately 3% annually over the past ten years. When you invest in a solar energy system, you can guard against unpredictable increases in electricity costs and fix your electricity rate.
Increase Your Property Value
Several studies have found that homes with solar energy systems sell more quickly and have higher property values than non-solar homes. As homebuyers become more educated about the benefits of solar, demand for properties with solar panel systems will continue to increase.
Earn a High Return on Your Investment
Thanks to significant electricity bill savings, the average American homeowner can pay off their solar panel system in seven to eight years – and receive an ROI of 20% or more.
