Home solar power often gives homeowners freedom from utility companies and increasing electric bills. You'll avoid high electricity rates, and if you have a battery, gather a reliable backup source for when the grid goes down.
As most of us know, electricity costs continue to rise and solar service agreements can offer lower rates so that you can expect to pay much less for power. Most people interested in taking the home solar panel route want to avoid three things: wasting energy, power outages, and high energy bills!
When you take advantage of solar panels, you successfully reduce expenses and uncertainties from your traditional power situation.
Clean energy isn't a fad, and it's not going anywhere anytime soon. Home solar panels offer renewable, clean energy, free of emissions. Fossil fuels, such as natural gas and coal, release harmful greenhouse gasses and pollutants.
When you choose solar, you're choosing an eco-friendly option. You can stop contributing to air pollution, at least from home, and prevent billions of dollars in environmental and health damage. Reducing your carbon footprint is more important now than ever, and solar panels contribute to a brighter, cleaner future for you and upcoming generations.
Did you know that home solar panels and batteries can increase the value of your home? Across the United States, homes with solar panels can jump up around 4% in worth. Your home does not have to be solely dependent on solar power for the value to increase or for you to impact the environment significantly.
Remember, because solar panels lower power bills, sometimes to zero, homes with installed panels sell faster than those without. Whether you're looking to sell or not, it's always a good idea to increase the value of your home.
If you needed any more reasons to integrate solar panels into your home, you’ll be happy to know that many local and federal jurisdictions offer incentives for installing solar energy systems. Recently, the federal government enacted the Inflation Reduction Act effective for 2023 which includes federal tax credits and rebates on solar energy. Sonoma County also has rebates available through Sonoma Clean Power. You can find out more about this by talking to our experts!
