Why Go for Solar Power

Solar energy is a clean, reliable and cost effective way of reducing the ballooning energy bills for many American homeowners and businesses. So what exactly makes this form of energy so attractive in the present times?

It’s good for the Planet
and also for your wallet

Solar energy offers good solutions for reducing the devastating effects of global warming due to carbon emission besides lowering the ever increasing utility bills you have to pay each month.

Solar Reduces Electricity Bills

By installing a solar system, you can eliminate or reduce significantly your monthly electric utility bills. You will also benefit from the following:

  • 30% Solar Energy Tax Credit from the government
  • Be in control over your electricity consumption and consequently control the amount of money you pay to the utility companies.

Increase the Value of your Property

Studies have indicated that homes or business in Atlanta installed with solar power systems sold at much higher rates than those without solar energy systems. The simple interpretation of this is that installing a solar system will increase the worth of your property. Other things to take note of with regards to this include:

A solar system added about $5.50 per watt to a home’s resale value average.

If the solar system was installed in the home after construction, the resale value of the property increased by $6 per watt.

New homes with pre-installed solar systems on the other hand witnessed an increase on the resale value with between $2.30 and $2.60 per watt.

It is a Smart Business Decision

Energy costs are usually one of the highest costs that businesses have to deal with. As a result, many are on the lookout for various ways of either enhancing the efficiency of their energy consumption or lowering the costs all together. Solar energy systems provide a viable means for the companies to achieve efficiency while lowering the cost of energy at the same time. Therefore, a solar energy system would be a smart business decision for every kind of business grappling with high energy costs.

Tax Credits, Rebates and Incentives

There are federal, state and local tax incentives you can take advantage of by installing a solar energy system. These generous incentives can make you make a worthwhile investment into your energy future.

A great place to learn about the current local, state and federal incentives on solar energy systems is the DSIRE – Database for State Incentives for Renewable & Efficiency.

Help Save the Planet

For every ten seconds of sunshine, the amount of energy received on earth is sufficient to take care for world’s electricity needs for one whole year. Using the sun’s energy therefore is a great way to reduce the carbon prints while lowering down energy utility bills as the same time.
