You’ve probably heard the buzz about solar energy. It’s an excellent alternative to many common home energy sources, but there is a lot to think about when it comes to such an investment. Deciding whether or not solar is right for your home can seem like a daunting task for many homeowners. But, the truth is that solar is an excellent option for just about everyone. And now is a great time to consider solar energy for your home.
Here’s are just a few of the benefits that using solar energy in your home can provide for you and your family:
A solar array can help you significantly reduce the amount of energy that you use (and pay for) each month. Oftentimes the array will even reverse your meter so that you actually get paid from your electric company! Even though there is an initial investment in a solar array, your energy bill savings will decrease starting immediately after install, allowing you to recoup the costs over time.
Other Financial Incentives
Along with reducing your home energy bills, there are other financial incentives to installing a solar array. For instance, a lot of utility companies offer rebates when you use solar systems, and the government offers tax credits for homes that are solar powered. With all this money savings, your new investment will pay itself off in a few years! Also, if you ever consider selling your home, having an existing solar array can significantly increase your home’s resale value, sometimes up to $20,000.
Your new solar array provides renewable energy and will not cause any pollution, which is great for the environment and your conscience. Since solar energy is powered by the sun, your energy source reduces the amount of harmful emissions needed to power your home. By choosing solar energy, you will consume approximately half the amount of electricity, meaning less reliance on fossil fuels and other non-renewable resources.
Did you know that your new solar array could last approximately 25 years before needing replacement? That’s right. With this longevity you’ll be able to install your array, and sit back and enjoy all the money savings coming your way. Think of how much you can save in energy bills over the next 25 years. You could use that money to take a vacation, improve other areas of your house, or a number of other fun possibilities.
The Bottom Line
Solar is an excellent source of sustainable alternative energy. Even though solar energy may not totally replace your existing energy sources, it will certainly enhance the energy sources you already use and save you a lot of money over the long run.
