The Benefits of Solar

Here's why solar is the smartest choice for you.

Reduce Your Electricity Bill

On average, homeowners spend more than $1000 per year on their electricity bill. As solar panels have a lifetime of 25+ years, that can mean more than $25,000 in savings over the life of the system. And with a $0 money down solar loan, your monthly savings can outweigh the loan payments, meaning you see immediate payback on your investment.

Increase the Value of Your Home

A recent study found that homes with solar systems sold for 3-4% more than homes without solar. In fact, the increase in home value was found to be even greater than the initial cost of the solar system. And by owning your system, you won’t face any of the complications that come with a lease when you sell your home. Check out this comparison of various home improvement projects.

Lock in Low Electricity Rates

Over the past decade, electricity costs have risen by an average of 3% per year. When you buy electricity from the utility company, you are subject to unpredictable and potentially rising costs. By investing in a solar system, you can lock in low electricity prices for the next 25+ years.

Reduce Your Carbon Footprint

Fossil fuel powerplants produce large amounts of carbon dioxide, a greenhouse gas which contributes to global climate change. In addition, the mining and burning of fossil fuels such as coal and natural gas result in a host of harmful pollutants that lead to detrimental human health effects. Switching to solar energy can go a long way towards reducing your carbon footprint and preventing pollution. Over 25 years, the average solar system offsets the emissions equivalent to:
  • Burning 100 Tons of coal
  • 50 Acres of Forest Saved
  • Taking 25 cars off the road
