Why Solar Power?
Any homeowner or business owner looking into going solar will have their own personal list of reasons, but in most cases, the reasons can be summed up with a few of the most important benefits:
The economic benefits of solar…
A properly installed solar electric system can drastically reduce or even eliminate your electric bills altogether and it’s a low risk investment with some very high returns. Solar is actually more affordable than ever. And, with the State and Federal incentives available, payback time is shortened so solar simply makes a lot of sense. From adding value to your home or business property to protection from PG&E’s rate increases to even creating a positive cash flow, going solar is a smart financial choice from almost any vantage point you view it. Solar energy is just smart energy for your pocketbook.
The environmental benefits of solar…
Solar is clean, green, unlimited and the fastest growing energy resource in the world. The environmental benefits of going solar are abundant but some of the most important include reducing air pollution, cutting the need for more fossil fuel power, combating greenhouse gases and decreasing your carbon footprint on earth. You can power your home or business with pure sunshine, cut your costs and feel a little better about your part in mending the environment and your community. Using solar power is a tangible way for homeowners or business owners to generate energy that is environmentally safe and rewarding.
The energy independence benefits of solar…
The idea of owning your own energy as opposed to renting it is one of the most appealing ideas to consumers looking to go solar. When you install solar, you gain freedom from the utility company and full control of your energy future. With solar, your home or business can become fully energy self-suficient. Every hour, the sun above you radiates more energy onto the earth’s surface than the human population can use in an entire year. The sheer abundance of power available from the sun is mind-boggling when you really sit down and think about it. And thanks to the generous incentives and tax credits available as well as innovative financing solutions, energy independence has become more affordable than ever before. Going solar is helping to make America as a whole, energy independent.
There are simply a huge variety of benefits and advantages to using solar power for your home or business. The video below is from the U.S. Department of Energy and will walk you through some of those benefits as well as show you exactly how a solar PV panel takes the energy of the sun above and converts it into electricity.
