Top Benefits of Switching to Solar Power
Some homeowners make the switch to solar power to help protect the environment – and yes, installing a photovoltaic array will reduce your carbon footprint. That, however, might not be enough motivation to choose an alternative energy source.
So, let’s talk about money. Switch to solar power, and you’ll enjoy several significant financial advantages. To find out what you can gain by going solar, read on.
Big Savings on Electricity Bills
How much do you pay for electricity every month? Install a photovoltaic array, and you can dramatically reduce your energy costs. Size your solar power system correctly, and you might even eliminate your electricity bills. And with today’s highly-efficient solar panels, you won’t have to spend much to have a free source of home power.
Protection Against Rising Electricity Costs
You’ve no doubt noticed that electricity rates are on the rise – the utility companies charge more every year. By investing in a photovoltaic array now, you can minimize the effect of these price increases have on your budget. You won’t have to worry about unpredictable costs. Instead, each time the rates increase, so will your savings.
Speedy Return on Investment
With prices for solar panels and photovoltaic equipment dropping and the many available financial incentives, the return on investment for a PV system is faster than ever. The exact amount of time it takes to reach the payback point varies, of course, but most homeowners who switch to solar power in 2019 will see a profit within just a handful of years.
Increased Home Value and Marketability
These days, home buyers look for energy efficiency – and properties with PV systems are in demand. As such, by installing a photovoltaic array, you’ll be adding value to your home. If you decide to put your house on the market in the future, you can expect it to sell quickly and for a higher price Solar-powered homes typically sell for up to 17 percent more and up to 20 percent faster than comparable properties reliant on utility grid electricity.
