Solar Power System
Solar energy is sustainable, renewable, and plentiful. As the cost of using solar to produce electricity goes down each year, many Americans are increasingly switching to solar power. Now, there are over a million solar power system installations across the country. Below are additional benefits of switching to solar electricity.
Financial returns and lower monthly utility bills are major incentives for going solar. The exact savings you will see with solar power depends on the following:
- Electricity consumption
- Solar energy system size
- Whether you purchase or lease your system
Direct hours of daily sunlight
Size and angle of roof
Local electricity rates
A solar electric system provides an opportunity for anyone who is looking to reduce monthly utility bills and make a long-term, low-risk investment.
Increased Home Value
Solar panels are viewed as upgrades, like a renovated kitchen or a finished basement, so purchasing a solar energy system will likely increase your home’s value. According to the Office of Energy Efficiency & Renewable Energy, studies show that homeowners pay a premium for a solar home; one study by Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory showed that on average, solar increased the value of a home by about $15,000. Although market factors like electricity rates and system size may impact the size of the premium, solar homes can sell for more than homes without solar power.
Each kilowatt-hour (kWh) of solar power that is generated will substantially reduce greenhouse gas emissions like CO2,as well as other dangerous pollutants such as sulfur oxides, nitrogen oxides and particulate matter. Solar power systems also reduce water consumption and withdrawal.
It's a simple process that only requires your utility bill to get started.
