Solar power has been gaining popularity since long before the Texas power grid crisis in February of 2021, and for good reason. Solar power is a clean, sustainable source of energy any home or business owner can use. And the benefits of going solar never seem to end.
More For Less
The number one reason most property owners choose to go solar is the savings. Depending on how much energy your property consumes, how many panels you have installed, and how much sun exposure they get, you can easily reduce or even eliminate your electric bill – and not a moment too soon. Energy costs have risen more than 70% in the last decade alone, but with solar power, you can enjoy independence from volatile market fluctuations as well as superior energy efficiency.
If you’re hesitant to go solar because of the initial investment, don’t be. Going solar has an incredible return on investment (ROI), and it doesn’t take long to reap the rewards. Typically, it takes less than 10 years to pay off all of the equipment, allowing you to see an impressive 20% or more ROI thereafter that pays off your solar setup multiple times over. And that’s not the only way going solar benefits you financially.
Investing in solar power before it becomes standard is a great way to take advantage of exclusive tax benefits and other financial advantages that aren’t going to last forever. These benefits can include access to the 26% Federal Investment Tax Credit (residential details or commercial details), Property Assessed Clean Energy (PACE) financing, limited utility rebates, Performance Based Incentives (PBIs), 5-Year MACRS Asset Depreciation Schedule, and the Rural Energy for America Program (REAP). And you don’t want to miss out.
Improved Property Value
Formal studies prove that when it comes to selling a property, those with solar panels and battery backup systems installed typically sell for 4% more than similar properties in similar areas. Better still, the increase usually equates to most of the total cost of the equipment, so you earn virtually all your money back when you sell. This is an especially big deal if your new property doesn’t have solar panels, as you can simply reinvest the money in new solar panels right away.
Good For The Earth
Right behind all the unique economic advantages going solar can offer, environmental sustainability is the leading reason most home and business owners make the switch to solar. For homeowners, going solar can reduce carbon emissions by as much as four tons per year – the equivalent of planting 100+ trees every single year. For business owners, the advantages of going green never end. From environmental impact to positive publicity, your business will benefit at every turn.
Unlike HVAC systems that require routine maintenance every season or plumbing that needs regular cleanings to remain efficient, solar panels require very little maintenance. Other than preventing obstructions by cleaning them off when necessary, you shouldn’t need to interact with them much at all. Any maintenance concerns you have can be addressed by a professional.
Pairs Perfectly With Battery Backup Systems
Temporary power outages triggered by natural causes and technical difficulties are sometimes unavoidable, but losing your power doesn’t have to be. Our solar panels pair perfectly with our modern battery backup systems to guarantee your property always has a backup plan if the power goes out. Automatically storing the solar energy your panels collect during the day ensures your battery backup system is ready for anything.
