Top 5 Reasons Why Solar Just Makes Sense!

100% Free to Find Out if Your Home Qualifies and Only Takes 30 Seconds!

Solar is becoming more and more popular for good reason. We will discuss your home, energy needs, future goals, and any concerns about solar you may have in a quick interview process. We’ll evaluate a few designs, verify the most advantageous way to go solar, and one of our consultants will explain solar options with you at your home for free.

✅ 1. Lower (and ultimately eliminate) Your Electric Bill

With utility rates climbing regularly, each year you’ll save more with solar than the year before. However, the long-term advantage of solar energy is energy independence. Once the upfront costs for the system are paid, you no longer need to worry about the availability or price of energy as long as the system is running - you are your own energy provider.

✅ 2. Increase The Value Of Your Home

A study conducted by National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) concluded that homes with solar panels sell 20% faster and for 17% more money than those without, and the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory found that the sales price of the average home increased $17,000 with solar panels.

✅ 3. Federal Tax Credit & Rebates

Federal, state, and local governments often offer lucrative tax credits, rebates, and other incentives to encourage homeowners to switch to renewable energy. The federal government allows you to deduct 30% of your solar energy system costs off your federal taxes through the federal investment tax credit (ITC). If you do not expect to owe taxes in the year you purchase your solar system, you can roll over your federal solar tax credit to the following year.

✅ 4. Low Maintenance & High Reliability

Modern solar systems are built to withstand normal and seasonal environmental conditions, and a high-quality system will require little to no maintenance. These low-maintenance, high-reliability systems mean that all homeowners need to do is sit back and enjoy their solar savings without needing to worry about system failures or weather-related damage, and will ensure your customer's peace of mind for years to come.

✅ 5. Eco-friendliness

While in use, solar panels create absolutely no waste or emissions. Unlike fossil fuel power plants, they produce clean, renewable energy from an energy source that requires no excavation, transportation, or combustion. It’s a simpler, cheaper, cleaner, and all-around better energy solution. And, of course, solar grants energy independence, since sunshine can't be bought or monopolized and is available everywhere, free of charge, for everyone.
