In our last blog, we shared insight on some of the top grounds for going solar. But there’s even more reasons to explore this route, so we’re continuing our look at why this could be a great opportunity for you or your business.
Solar is a Secure Investment
The energy providers are well-known for their unreliable and fluctuating electricity costs. There’s an upward trend.
With simple math and solar panels, our team is able to calculate how much electricity can be generated, and more importantly, at which price, for at least the following two decades.
Manufacturers of solar panels offer a 20- to 25-year warranty along with their panels. After 25 years, the industry standard guarantees 80 percent performance.
Solar panels’ real lifespans are much longer – your panels will likely generate a significant amount of electricity 30 to 40 years into the future.
Save the Environment
It’s a given that most homeowners opt to try solar because it makes sense from a financial viewpoint. With that being said, the environmental advantages also are worth mentioning.
The United States places 2nd in the world in yearly CO2 emissions at 17.9 percent, directly behind China. It’s possible to go a long way in reducing your carbon footprint by replacing electric power with clean electricity from panels.
The median residential system offsets around 100,000 pounds of CO2 in two decades – the equivalent of driving an automobile for 100,000 miles.
Creates Energy Independence
With more individuals and businesses going solar, it’s possible to help to decrease United States dependence on foreign energy sources. We’ll inevitably run out of natural gas, coal, and oil, and while we continue our use of these increasingly expensive energy sources, our economy and national security suffers.
Solar is Easy
Investing in solar once was a complicated and long process. There are multitudes of solar providers in the United States alone. In the past, it could take weeks to locate the top solar deal. Thankfully things have changed.
