Are there ideal customers for solar panels? Maybe you’re one
While Power Home Solar wishes every homeowner could have solar panels installed on their homes, there are things that could stand in a customer’s way, including the wishes of your homeowners association or the amount of shading your property receives.
But if you check all the prerequisite boxes, could we start to construct what the ideal customer for solar power looks like? We can. Take a look at these qualities, and see if you fit the profile.
You want to save money. In a time where many of us are doing more with less, sometimes you may not have as much money for fun, discretionary spending. Going solar has the potential to save you money from Day 1, which would build in some savings for those things. Because your solar bill comes at a locked-in rate, you insulate yourself from rising utility rates. And when your solar system produces more energy than what your home needs at any one time, you earn energy credits, lowering the amount you pay the power company.
You want to own their power, not rent it. As a homeowner, every house payment puts equity back into your home. The same is true in going solar. Every solar payment gets you one step closer to outright owning your power instead of continuously renting it from the power company. Solar bills go away, and all the power you generate after that comes with no cost. Going solar is your chance to own one of your utilities and decrease your dependence on the power company. It’s a massive win.
You envision staying awhile in their home. If you’re near the point of outgrowing your current home or foresee a move for other reasons in the near term, it most likely doesn’t make sense to go solar because you won’t be around long enough to enjoy it. But for those who know they’re in a home they want to be in for the long term, the investment makes more sense. Solar is a solid investment, and your savings grow larger the longer you have your system.
You want to go green. Going solar provides your home with clean, renewable energy, and the warranties on your panels (25 years) and inverter (12 or 25 years) show that your solar system is meant to last. Your solar system will shrink your home’s carbon footprint and the country’s reliance on non-renewable energy sources. Only 2 percent of the nation’s power is currently produced by solar energy, but every system installed will grow that number. Going green provides environmental benefits that will only help future generations.
If the above qualities match up with your goals, Power Home wants to talk with you. With our innovative solar program, homeowners in our four-state coverage area (Michigan, North Carolina, Ohio and Virginia) can go solar for $0 up-front cost, save money on their electric bills, and generate their own clean energy. The solar panels installed on your home are American made and come with a 25-year warranty, with many panels expected to last well beyond that.
