Why Should You Consider a Solar System for Your Home?
Using solar for all or part of your home’s electrical needs makes sense. Grid-tied residential solar systems are less expensive than ever and reduce the amount of electricity you purchase from your local utility. Where net metering programs are available, you may be able to sell excess electricity to your utility. Your residential solar system will produce reliable, clean power to reduce the burning of fossil fuels and contribute to a healthier environment. Solar electric systems are quiet, operate automatically, require very little maintenance and need no fuel except sunshine!
Installing a PV system is also a capital improvement to your home or business (and is therefore exempt from property tax). But unlike other real property improvements, a residential solar system generates electricity and thus an ongoing cash flow, by directly reducing your electricity bills for the next 25 or more years. The initial capital investments and subsequent cash flow benefits make a home solar system comparable to other long term, purely financial investments.
