THE BENEFITS OF GOING SOLAR
"Once the renewable infrastructure is built, the fuel is free forever. Unlike carbon-based fuels, the wind and the sun and the earth itself provide fuel that is free, in amounts that are effectively limitless." – Al Gore
Whether you’re a homeowner, business, or nonprofit, electricity costs can make up a large portion of your monthly expenses. With a solar system, you’ll generate free power for your system’s entire 30+ year lifecycle. It’s smart for your bottom line and it’s smart for the planet.
Solar is one of the best ways to invest, with returns on invesment (ROI) rivaling those of more traditional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to substantial electricity bill savings and the 30% solar tax credit, the average homeowner pays off their solar panel system in 4-6 years and sees an average ROI of 3-400% over the life of the system!

PROTECT AGAINST RISING ENERGY COSTS
Another great benefit of solar is the ability to hedge utility prices and gain greater control over future expenses. This is especially important as we move into retirement and fixed incomes. Electricity prices have gone up an average of 4% per year with higher increases expected for the future. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can protect your family against unpredictable increases in energy costs.
INCREASED PROPERTY VALUE
Solar panels can more than pay for themselves by increasing the value of your home. Homes equipped with solar energy systems have higher property values and sell more quickly than non-solar homes.
SUPPORTS OUR LOCAL COMMUNITY & ECONOMY
By going solar, you help with local grid stability by reducing demand and providing clean energy to you and your neighbors. By choosing a local solar company, you make your dollar go a long way. Not only do you support the success of our local economy by spurring job growth and providing fair wage jobs for our neighbors, you stimulate local spending and tax revenues which directly supports our schools, roads, infrastructure and services.
GOOD FOR THE PLANET. GOOD FOR OUR FUTURE.
Unlike conventional electricity, solar energy does not pollute. Solar is a great way to reduce your carbon footprint and gain peace of mind from knowing you’re doing the right thing for the planet. One kilowatt of energy produced by solar panels prevents 300lbs of C02 from being emitted into the atmosphere. A typical residential solar system will eliminate 3-4 tons of carbon emissions each year—the equivalent of planting over 100 trees annually.
Not only does solar increase energy independence for our country. It frees you from dependence on utility companies, big oil, and other toxic sources of energy. Solar puts you in charge of your energy source, your energy production, and your energy savings.
