What are the advantages of solar?

Reduce Your Electricity Bill

The cost of electricity is a monthly recurring bill for most homeowners and in most states and provinces the price of electricity has continued to increase year-over-year. When going solar, you’re able to offset that price through the electricity that’s produced from your solar PV system and put back into the grid. In states and provinces with net-metering, you are credited for the electricity that your system puts back into the grid and pay less for the price of your solar lease and new net-metering electricity than without.

Create a Sustainable Future

Solar helps to reduce your carbon footprint by reducing the amount of emissions you’re emitting and directly impacting your health and those around you. Lower emissions result in less emergency room visits for respiratory systems, heart attacks and mortality cases. For some homes, using solar as a power source is the same as planting nearly 2,500 trees which is a significant cut-back in pollution. As a renewable energy source, solar benefits the environment.

Protect Yourself From Rising Electricity Costs

The energy you produce from your solar PV system credits your utility bill. For every KWH you produce, you credit your utility bill one KWH. If you’re paying 15 cents per KWH today it will hold the same value if your cost per KWH increases to 30 cents per KWH. By using solar and producing electricity, you can collect utility bill credits that can be applied at higher electricity costs, protecting you from losing more money.

What can you save?

If your home qualifies for solar, among other factors your savings will depend greatly on how you choose to go solar. Each option has it’s benefits. You will most commonly have higher savings when you purchase or take a loan for your solar panel system as you can be eligible for state incentives. A solar lease on the other hand, allows you to go solar with no money down and gets you saving right away.
