Why Go Solar: 9 Reasons


Eliminate or reduce your electric bills

You system will generate free power over its 25-30 year life cycle. It is possible to produce 100% of your consumed energy, you can also choose a system that only covers a portion of your usage. Either way, you'll be saving a lot of money.

Earn a great return on your investment

Solar panels are an investment that pay solid returns that can be even higher than more traditional investments such as stocks or bonds. Saving on electricity, plus the potential to generate revenue result in ROIs, makes solar one of the best ways to invest.

Protect against rising energy costs

The facts show the price of energy will continue to rise. By sourcing your own energy, you can make these costs more predictable.

Increase your property value

The housing market shows that homes equipped with clean energy systems have higher property values and sell twice as fast. As the demand for renewable energy continues to rise, homes or commercial properties equipped with solar panel systems will be more in demand as well.

Boost U.S. energy independence

The more of your energy you produce, the less dependent you are on foreign oil and our country's electricity grid. Shall there be a grid outage, it could take months to get back online. Sourcing your own energy will give you security against grid attacks.

Create jobs and help your local economy

Studies predict the clean energy sector will generate between 3-5 million “green collar” jobs over the next decade. Because these jobs tend to be higher paying and generally are not “outsource-able”, they represent a significant contributor to the U.S. economy.

Protect the environment

Solar is a great way to reduce your carbon footprint. Buildings are responsible for close to 35% of all carbon emissions in the U.S. and going solar can decrease that number significantly. A typical residential solar panel system will eliminate 3-4 tons of carbon emissions each year—roughly the equivalent of planting over 100 trees every year.

Build your brand, demonstrate your commitment to sustainability

Sustainability and corporate social responsibility not only tie to an organization’s culture and values, they also produce bottom line results. Increasingly, consumers and communities are recognizing and rewarding businesses that choose to operate responsibly. Businesses are finding that “green” credentials are a powerful driver of consumer purchasing decisions, creating goodwill and improved business results.

Financial incentives are available

There are many financial incentives available at the federal, state, local, and utility level. In some cases, these incentives can cover 70% of your total installation price. Take advantage of these incentives while they last.
