There are countless advantages of this affordable, clean, and sustainable technology. Below are some of the most popular reasons to consider switching to solar.
Financial Savings. When you switch to solar, your monthly electricity bills will be less than what you are currently paying to your utility company. That’s because your solar production will offset what you would have normally purchased from your utility. The power you generate is cheaper than utility pricing, so you are able to save money for every unit of electricity you produce.
Energy Independence. When you are producing your own power from your own rooftop panels, you are consuming less electricity from the grid. That grid electricity is coming from a variety of sources, some of it from volatile commodities. Having a consistent, reliable source of power on your own roof insulates you from pricing and supply volatility from other sources.
Everyone is different, so there’s no single best way to pay for solar. There are several options you can choose from, so you can decide what works best for you.
No-money-down options are affordable and offer immediate savings. You are basically going solar for free, and you’ll save on your very first electricity bill. You’ll pay a monthly solar bill and a significantly smaller electricity bill from your utility provider—for any remaining electricity. But do you want to know the best part? The combined amount of the two bills will be LESS than your old utility bill.
Or you can buy your system to make a personal investment in solar and save even more over time. The total cost of purchasing a system varies widely, but a typical installation can cost between $15,000 and $30,000. However, your out-of-pocket costs could be dramatically reduced by federal, state and local incentives. In addition, financing alternatives can eliminate the upfront cost and provide affordable monthly payments.
Solar panels produce power by capturing free sunshine and converting it into clean electricity. The more direct sunlight your solar panels receive, the more power they produce. A high quality installation location means that your solar panels can more efficiently generate power, meaning more electricity savings for you. Several factors are considered to ensure you get the most out of your solar panels:
Roof area. Available roof space—along with your budget—determines how large of a system you can install. The larger the system, the more power it can produce.
Roof orientation. Does your roof face north, south, east, or west? South facing roofs are ideal for solar, since they will ensure maximum sun exposure—although you could still be a good candidate for solar even if your roof isn’t oriented to the south.
Roof shading. Do any trees, adjacent homes, or other obstacles block sun exposure on your roof? Excessive shading will compromise your system’s performance, but sometimes this issue can be resolved by trimming trees or considering a ground mount system.
The only sure way to know if you are a good candidate for solar is to have one of Capital Solar professionals evaluate your home’s potential for solar. It’s free and there is no obligation.
You only go solar once, and your choice of solar installer is an important decision. After all, your installer will be working with you to design your system, install your system, and provide support after your system installation. In a competitive market, there’s no shortage of options.
