What are the benefits of a solar panel system?

  1. Save thousands on your electric utility bills.
    Solar panel systems can significantly reduce your utility bill. Any energy produced FREE by the sun and your solar panel system is energy that you don't have to purchase from your utility. This translates into direct savings on your monthly utility bill.

    You'll enjoy a $0 or very low power bill for the 25 or 30 year life of the solar panel system. For example, if you spend $200 per month for electricity with a utility, then you will spend $81,979 over 25 years, including a low annual price inflation rate of 2.5%. No matter how you calculate it, you will save money with a $5,000 to $25,000 solar panel system. Forget the confusing and distracting cost per kilo-watt (kW) comparisons. Remember, you can pay the utility for 25 years, with annual price increases, or you can pay a lot less for solar power. You'll also get some great tax credits and solar rebates.

    In addition to the direct savings, the solar panel arrays also act as a sunshade for your roof, reflecting heat from the sun that would otherwise be absorbed by your house. A shaded roof area can reduce the air temperature of your house, reducing the energy required by your air-conditioner to keep a comfortable temperature in your home.

  2. Increase the resale value of your home
    Like any home improvement, a solar panel system should increase your home’s resale value by the amount of the installation. So even if you move from your present home, your solar panel system will have reduced your monthly utility bill and increased the value of your home if you do decide to sell.

  3. Clean, Healthy Renewable Energy
    By using a renewable power source, you're helping reduce the impact of global warming and climate change. You will avoid producing hundreds of tons of greenhouse gases during the solar panel system lifetime.

  4. Energy Independence
    Make your own power, avoid utility price increases and be protected in the event of a power outage or disaster.

  5. American Jobs
    Create clean energy jobs. Solar panels are designed, installed and maintained by American workers.

  6. Future Power
    Home solar panels can charge you electric car. You will save thousands every year. Imagine no fuel costs, no trips to the gas station and no oil changes.
