Since quarantine started, you’re probably spending more time at home than usual. You’re now using more energy on Wi-fi routers, video game systems, and hours of TV. On top of that, you’re paying for summer AC. Consequently, electricity bills have skyrocketed.
So, how can you bring your electric bill back down? At POWERHOME SOLAR, we’re here to help. Let’s talk about some ways you could lower your electric bill during COVID-19 with solar energy.
3 ways solar energy could lower your power bill during COVID-19
1. You can reduce your dependence on the grid
By utilizing solar energy, you and your family will potentially lower your electric bill and potentially reduce your dependence on the grid. Both would be wins. You will remain tied to the grid, but the chance that you’ll pay the utility company less is a big plus.
2. You can store your own energy in solar batteries
When you install solar panels, you can also install a solar battery that allows you to store excess power you generate to use in the future when your panels may not produce at the highest level. For example, solar panels generate no power at night. Solar batteries work to power your home during nighttime hours by tapping into the excess power your panels generated during the day. Simply put, you can continue benefiting from your solar panels regardless of time of day or season.
At POWERHOME SOLAR, we partner with Generac to provide quality solar panel battery backups. For a limited time, install solar panels on your home and get a Generac battery backup included at no cost. Contact us today to learn more.
3. You can sell the energy you don’t use back to the electric company
Residential solar panels can often produce more energy than you need during the day. Net metering lets you channel that extra energy back to the electrical company in exchange for credits on your next bill. This helps offset any future energy costs during months when your panels produce less. Reach out to your local utility provider to see if they offer net metering credits.
