Solar Panels 

Why Solar Panels:

Homeowners have been making the switch to solar in record numbers with us – but why? High utility costs and hefty rate increase predictions. Electric companies can charge you whatever they want, and many homeowners are fed up with spending their money on overpriced rates. Solar panels eliminate all of this; they allow you to take back control and create your own energy with rates you want to pay.

The Top Two Benefits To Solar Panels:

a pair of hands surrounding a globe of the world

 

Benefit Number One

Help Save The Environment

 

Unlike utility companies that burn fossil fuels, solar panels generate electricity using a clean alternative. Supplying yourself with your own energy equals less harmful emissions being released into our atmosphere! Sleep better at night, knowing you're doing your part to help out the environment.

Benefit Number Two

Eliminate Your Overpriced Utility Bill

 

Installing a solar panel system allows you to become energy independent. Even though you must stay connected to the grid, you do not have to pay your utility company for electricity because you will produce your own. Eliminate your electricity bill and control how much you pay for your energy.

Solar Panels Save Money!

Solar panels can save you a tremendous amount of money. It's only a matter of if you can qualify for the federal and state government rebate program and if the system makes sense for your household. For example, houses with electricity bills over $200 will see better savings because more money is being overpaid to the utility company. The higher the bill, the higher the savings. The average homeowner will save about $1,400 their first year and $60,000 over their solar panel system's life span.  

While many homeowners are immediately drawn to the incredible monthly savings solar power can provide, people often overlook the term equity. Solar panels are considered an addition, similar to a pool; the money you invest in it, you can collect and capitalize when you sell your home. The size of your system and state of residency will determine your cap rate.

Panels Qualify For The Federal Tax Credit!

With the cost of solar panels dropping significantly during this pandemic, it's never been a better time to go solar. Add in that attractive government 26% incentive that was just extended in December of 2020, and the argument to make the switch to solar power only becomes stronger. The federal government has set aside 1.5 billion dollars to help homeowners go solar. "The omnibus bill would provide billions of dollars in clean energy research and development, including 1.5 billion dollars for solar and 625 million dollars for wind. It also includes R&D for advanced nuclear, carbon capture and storage, carbon removal, and more. The provisions of the American Energy Innovation Act and Clean Economy Jobs and Innovation Act are being dubbed "The Energy Act of 2020." - Utility Drive."

Solar Panels Are Eco-Friendly!

For many of our customers, the eco-friendly aspect of solar panels was their driving force in their decision to make the switch. Unlike fossil fuels that have created massive damage to our ecosystem and climate, solar power harnesses the sun's energy without causing additional damage to our environment. According to the U.S. Energy Information Administration, the average home consumed 10,649 kilowatt-hours (kWh) of electricity in 2019, roughly 23,500 pounds of burned coal. Now multiply that number by the number of houses in America (140 million), and you come up with a disturbing statistic.

Once you get solar panels installed on your roof, the goal is to become 100% energy independent. Most solar companies will offset your electricity usage by 90% - 100%, but that's not always the case if you don't have enough roof space.

When coal burns, it releases carbon dioxide (CO2) into our environment. This deadly greenhouse gas creates a trap in our atmosphere that captures the sun's heat and warms up the globe's environment. This increase in temperature creates havoc on our planet: sea levels rise, we experience longer droughts, stronger tropical storms, and unpredictable weather patterns. Solar panels may not reduce 100% of the world's greenhouse gases, but they deliver a clean and affordable alternative to fossil fuel.

Here's The Bottom Line - The Real Price Of Switching To Solar

For homeowners who want to conserve energy and reduce their carbon footprint, going solar is an excellent option, but is it worth the cost? Ultimately, this will depend on how much energy your household consumes and the size of the solar power system installed at your residence. While solar power has been proven to help homeowners significantly lower their electricity bills, no reputable solar company can guarantee savings. Companies can, however, guarantee solar power production. By guaranteeing solar production, they can guarantee savings based on today’s rates.

If you are a homeowner looking for relief from high energy bills, you will be happy to know that we install premium solar power systems to conserve energy. While there may be other residential solar companies serving your community, few offer the depth of service that we do. We will handle every aspect of your project, from design work and permitting to product registration and installation!

Frequently Asked Questions

(About Solar Panels)

+

There are three different solar panels: monocrystalline, polycrystalline (also known as multi-crystalline), and thin-film. All three types of panels are engineered with silicon and solar cells. The solar cells absorb sunlight, and the silicon turns it into energy.

+

It depends. If you have a large enough roof and it is exposed to the sun all day, every day, then yes, absolutely! However, if your roof is shaded or if you have a low utility bill, then no. Solar panels are a great investment for people to add equity to their property, lower high utility bills, and reduce their CO2 emissions.

+

Yes and no. It depends on the type of solar inverters you install with your system. If you use string inverters, the most basic inverters on the market, and one panel is shaded, the entire system will lack inefficiency. On the other hand, if you install microinverters, each solar panel operates independently. If you're concerned about shade, we highly recommend you use microinverters to maximize your savings.

+

Solar panels are made up of glass and are extremely durable. You can take a hose to them or hire a solar panel professional to hop up the roof with a brush. Most panels are maintenance-free. If you live in a state with rain, the weather will perform all of the dirty work for you.

+

Solar panels allow homeowners to become energy independent. You no longer have to rely on the utility companies for power. Most utility companies use fossil fuels (coal) to generate electricity. "The burning of fossil fuels releases greenhouse gases into the atmosphere, increasing levels of CO2 and other gasses, trapping heat, and contributing to global climate change." Solar panels eliminate all of that.
