The Perks of Switching to Solar Energy
Back in 2016, the number of solar panel installations nearly doubled. That number has continued to increase with the advancements in solar energy technology, and the cost of solar energy declining by almost 70 percent. Not to mention, the new government savings programs available in state meant to incentivize homeowners to use clean energy and embrace renewable sources such as solar energy.
Previously, homeowners looked at solar energy as an environmental solution to pollution. Now, more people are switching to solar power to increase the value of their home, lower their energy bills and benefit from government incentives such as tax cuts. Another benefit is moving away from the grid and claiming independence from the power companies.
Today, homeowners that live in specific zip codes can go solar and save thousands of dollars in incentives and rebates that can cover up to 100% of the costs associated with converting to solar energy. Many homeowners are surprised to find out they qualify for solar panels with no upfront cost, saving up to 50% or more on the cost of powering their homes.
