Electric Savings – Think of a home solar system as your own personal power plant. Because you are no longer relying on your local utility for all of your electricity, you see a dramatic reduction of your monthly bill.
Protection From Rising Energy Costs – Since you’re producing energy at your home, it provides insurance against rate increases by your utility. When your solar system is producing more energy than you need (daytime), the excess is exported to the grid. This gives you credit towards the time when you need to receive energy from the grid (night time).
Good For The Environment – Your solar system harnesses the abundant clean energy that the sun shines on the Earth each and every day. This helps reduce the amount of harmful gases that are released into the atmosphere when fossil fuels are burned at traditional power plants.
Increase In Home Value – With so many homes adding solar over the last decade, there is now significant data about the positive impact solar has on home values. Recent studies suggest that homeowners can expect an increase of as much as $20 for every $1 reduction in annual utility bills.
Government Incentives – With Federal tax benefits and state centric programs including tax abatements and rebates, there are several government programs that can help subsidize the cost of a solar system. Not only do these help reduce the cost of your solar system, they can also become a source of income.
