Are you ready to reduce or ELIMINATE your utility bill?
Then going solar is the choice for you!
When you meet with one of our Solar Specialists, we take a look at your current utility bill, your roof orientation, and available roof space. This way we can design a system that maximizes your solar production to reduce your utility bill, or even eliminate it all together, saving you money starting day one.
Protect your family from rising utility costs.
Utility companies have been steadily increasing their rates for years. Slowly your utility bill keeps getting bigger even if you use the same amount of power. “Energy prices have been on the rise over the past several years (increasing by 34% from 2005 to 2015), and it’s not always certain if or when it’s going to slow down.1" Instead of paying the ever increasing rates of your utility company, you can lock in your rates by going solar.
How Much Can You Really Save With Solar?
The average electricity bill for a US home is between $100 and $200. If your electric bill is $150, your 30-year cost for electricity is over $90,000 (assuming a 3.5% annual cost increase)! As such, installing solar panels now can save you a significant amount of money over the next few decades.
For example, if you offset just half of your electricity usage, you can save over $45,000 over 30 years
Why Switching NOW Is The Smart Choice
Now is the time to go solar with the 30% Investment Tax Credit
With the extension of the Solar Investment Tax Credit (ITC) you you can take advantage of the 30% tax credit for new solar panel installation. This incentive makes the switch to solar energy more affordable for homeowners and businesses alike.
Net metering means you save even more!
In areas where net metering is available, you can save even more with solar.
How does Net Metering work?
- During the day time you will likely produce more power with your solar panels than you will need.
- This extra power is sent to the electric grid through your meter, where during these periods you will actually see the meter run backwards.
- The utility company will award you credits on your bill for the excess power you generate.
- Those credits can then be applied to your bill.
- During evening and nighttime hours when your solar production is low, you can then use those credits to power your home instead of paying peak rates.
Net metering is a great way to get even more savings out of your solar panels. During your free consultation ask if net metering is available in your area.
Thinking about home improvements?
During the last year many people are doing home improvements. Some of these improvements may have caused a notable increase in your utility bill, such as hot tubs, advanced home theatre systems, and lighting improvements. One way to help offset the cost of these improvements is to get a home solar panel system. By generating solar power for your home, you can reduce or eliminate your utility bill, or get a smaller system specifically to offset the new home improvements.
Schedule your consultation today to make sure you maximize your solar savings before the federal tax incentives are discontinued.
Increase Your Property Value
A solar panel system is a desirable feature on a property. Several studies show that homes with solar power are more appealing to homebuyers. Plus, solar homes tend to sell faster and at a premium compared to homes without renewable energy.
Let’s say you’re considering an investment in solar panels for your home but aren’t sure if you’ll live there for several years. In most cases, you should be able to recoup your solar installation costs when you sell your home.
During Outages, Be Still Up & Running With Solar!
A solar system provides supplemental power to your home, working in tandem with your local power grid. If you’d like to keep your home powered when/if the local energy grid goes offline, you can do so by pairing your solar system with one or more battery backups.
Solar batteries store the excess electricity your system produces. You can then use that stored power in the evening or at night. And when the electrical grid goes offline because of storm damage, accidents, etc., you can power your home while your utility company works on restoring power.
Solar is Good for The Planet Earth
Adding a solar system to your home decreases your carbon footprint. That means switching to solar reduces your environmental impact while lowering your energy usage and bills. If you want to do all you can to help our beautiful Planet Earth, switching to solar is one of the best places to start.
