1. Say goodbye to unpredictable electricity bills
By going solar, you can greatly reduce or even totally eliminate your monthly electric bill. In addition to this, by using our WattWise technology you’re able to track your energy usage real time, now that is power.
2. Increase your property value
Studies have found that homes equipped with solar energy systems have higher property values and sell more quickly than non-solar homes. Appraisers are increasingly taking solar installations into consideration as they value homes at the time of a sale. Solar panels will not only make your home more attractive to savvy home buyers, but it will be backed by our Pearl Certification which alone increases your sale price by 5% on average.
3. Help create more jobs in your community
By going solar, you are helping contribute to solar industry job creation. Because solar-related jobs tend to be higher paying and cannot be outsourced, they are a significant contributor to the U.S. economy.
4. Protect the environment
Solar is a great way to reduce your carbon footprint. Buildings are responsible for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can significantly decrease that number. A typical residential solar panel system will eliminate three to four tons of carbon emissions each year—the equivalent of planting over 100 trees annually.
5. Cleaner air
Electricity and air pollution stemming from fossil fuel plants makes up more than one-third of the total U.S. global warming emissions, according to the Union of Concerned Scientists. As a result, pollution in the air can wreak havoc on the community’s health. Renewable energy sources, like home solar panels, produce very little to no pollution.
6. Tax incentives
In order to encourage more consumers to go solar, the federal government offers great tax incentives. By having a solar system installed, you could be eligible for a 26% tax credit.
7. Increase US energy independence
The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a key component of achieving energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capacity to generate electricity from a free and renewable energy, we can also insulate our country from price fluctuations in global energy markets.
8. Protect your roof
Solar panels can help protect your roof from harsh weather, saving you money in roof repairs and helping your roof to last longer.
9. Get a return on your investment
Average homeowners pay off their solar panel systems in 7-8 years and see an ROI of 20%. Additionally, companies like APS offer a buy back rate for your left over credits at the end of each year.
