When a household stores solar energy produced on site, and uses that energy when solar production is less than the energy requirements in the house, it is called “self consumption.” With this type of system, the home-owner can be completely independent from the utility grid. In short; no more black-outs, no more utility bill.
On average, solar panels raise a home’s value by 4.1% across the U.S. - that’s a boost of $9,274 on a $226,300 home. Solar panels aren’t an expense – they’re one of the best ways to invest, with returns rivaling those of more traditional investments like stocks and bonds.
Unlike energy generated by fossil fuels, renewable energy systems do not have harmful carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions. Sustainable carbon-free energy solutions such as solar are crucial to slowing the pace of climate change and preventing further damage to the environment. A typical residential photovoltaic system will eliminate three to four tons of carbon emissions each year—the equivalent of planting over 100 trees annually.
There are many grants, secured loans and government subsidies available to help pay for the cost of installing solar systems. We are committed to getting you the most for your investment, and if done with financing, we can potentially complete an installation with no major changes to your total monthly expenses.
