REASON #1: REDUCE OR ELIMINATE YOUR UTILITY BILL
You hear it all the time, “Go solar and reduce the cost of your electric bill!” But by how much? The simple answer: it depends. There are many factors like system size, monthly utility bill, location, etc. (we could go on and on). The good news is, solar WILL reduce your utility bill, and lucky for you, we have solar experts on our team that can figure everything else out for you! Get a free quote today to find out how going solar can significantly reduce your utilities and pay for itself quicker than you’d expect.
REASON #2: DO THE EARTH A FAVOR
The Earth: it’s where we live, and we need to take care of it. If you knew that what you were doing to your home was destroying it, would you keep doing it? Solar is the most abundant energy source on the planet, and harvesting its energy to power our homes and lives drastically reduces our carbon footprint at the local and global levels.
REASON #3: BE THE TALK OF THE TOWN (IN THE BEST WAY POSSIBLE)
Picture this: you are no longer reliant on your power company and the sleek, new, money-saving addition to your roof is glistening in the Florida sun. You overhear your neighbors complaining about the summer heat ramping up their utility bill, while yours has never been lower! This dream could be your reality if you choose to go solar. The Earth will love you, and your neighbors will want to be you, guaranteed.
REASON #4 & 5: INCREASE YOUR PROPERTY VALUE WITH AN INVESTMENT THAT PAYS FOR ITSELF
Sure, everyone wants to sell their house for more than they bought it for. But at what cost? Expensive remodels, additions, etc. can be quite the expense! But solar? While it may seem on par with some of the pricier add-ons to your home, in reality, it’s one of the only investments in your home that pays for itself (quite literally). Not only will it add value to your home, but with lowering costs and tax credit incentives, the payback period has never been shorter!
REASON #6: CREATE BETTER JOBS
Imagine starting your day descending into the depths of the earth where there’s no natural light, the air is polluted with coal dust, and the risk of the ground above you collapsing is much higher than it should be. This is the life of a coal miner. By going solar, you create more solar jobs, where there is nothing but the sun and the sky above you, and the air you breathe is fresh and clean. By going solar, you help others while helping yourself, a true win-win.
REASON #7: SOLAR HAS NEVER BEEN CHEAPER!
One of the biggest misconceptions of solar is that it is a huge expense. In reality, solar is an investment that will, in time, reduce or eliminate a relatively large recurring expense in your day-to-day life – the utility bill. Upfront costs are lower than ever, as the average price of solar electricity has dropped an impressive 89% in the past 10 years. Needless to say, it has never been more affordable to go solar!
REASON #8: THE SOLAR TAX CREDIT JUST GOT EXTENDED!
On top of solar prices dropping every year, there is an additional tax credit available to those who decide to invest in solar! The residential solar tax credit initially set to expire after 2021, has been extended through 2023. This means that homeowners who invest in solar in 2021 or 2022 will be eligible for a 26% tax credit, and those who invest in solar in 2023 will be eligible for a 22% tax credit. The solar tax credit was initially created in 2006, with the hope that it would make solar more affordable. Since then, the U.S Solar Industry has grown exponentially, with some websites reporting growth of over 10,000%.
REASON #9: POWER OUTAGES NO MORE!
Power outages. While they happen to some of us more than others, we’ve all been through them. Meat and dairy are on a ticking time bomb for spoiling, and everyone in the house is searching for the rarely-used candles that are hidden deep in a closet somewhere. Whether it’s during the annually awaited Florida hurricane season, or on a typical Tuesday night, they are never fun. Luckily, solar energy can be stored in a battery backup. No need to shuffle your way through the dark or worry about keeping fridge openings to a bare minimum anymore, because battery backups will keep your lights and appliances running without any interruption.
REASON #10: DOMESTIC ENERGY INDEPENDENCE
About one-third of the United States’ total energy consumption is imported. Solar energy is one of the best ways to achieve energy independence, on both the individual level and nation-wide. The more solar energy we use as a country, the less we will need to rely on foreign imports, inevitably contributing to greater economic, political, and environmental stability and freedom.
REASON #11: FREE, LIMITLESS ENERGY
The sun has been shining for 4.6 billion years, and it’s not stopping any time soon. It warms our planet every day without fail, and it can power your home, too. Solar is the world’s most abundant energy source, and there are no harmful processes involved in harnessing its power (unlike many other dirty fossil energy sources). It’s simply good, clean, renewable energy, that you could use to power your home.
REASON #12: HEALTHIER PLANET FOR A HAPPIER AND BRIGHTER FUTURE
Fracking, coal mining, drilling, and other harmful practices are hurting the earth every day. Methane and air pollution, contamination of groundwater, and deforestation are just some examples of the negative impacts these damaging extraction processes have on our planet. What we do today matters not only for us, but for future generations, too. Every solar panel installed reduces the need for fossil fuels, as well as the carbon emissions and environmental destruction that’s linked to them. Simply put, solar energy today paves the way for a cleaner, healthier, and brighter tomorrow.
