Why Go Solar?

Reduce Your Electricity Bills

One of the biggest draws to going solar is saving money on electricity bills. Whether its summer AC or winter heat, electricity costs can make up the larger portion of your monthly expenses. With a solar-powered system, you will be able to offset your production and save money! Even if your solar array doesn’t produce 100% of your energy needs, it will still reduce your utility bills and save you lots of money.

The Environmental Benefit of Solar Energy

The environmental impact of solar energy is huge. By switching to solar, you can significantly reduce your carbon footprint while fighting climate change. Traditional energy sources release several harmful toxins such as carbon dioxide, nitrous oxide and greenhouse gases. Solar energy is completely renewable and emission-free, making it the perfect way to make the world a cleaner place.

Help the U.S. Become Energy Independent

Along with the environmental benefits of installing solar is its ability to help the country become less dependent on foreign oil. The sun is an infinite source of energy and an effective way of achieving energy independence. By increasing our capacity to harness the power of the sun, we can help the country become fossil fuel independent.

Solar Energy Systems are Dependable

Solar panels have no moving parts and they are not damaged easily. Solar technology has been refined over the years and they are manufactured to be durable and require very minimal maintenance. Investing in the right type of solar panels will last you about 20 to 30 years.

The reliability and lifespan of solar panels is excellent, according to a recent study by the Energy Department. The researchers looked at 54,000 panels in total (50,000 of which were in the US). They found that every year, only 5 out of 10,000 panels failed of those placed between 2000 and 2015. The failure rate was only 0.05%, and the manufacturing process is a lot more advanced now than ever before. You can be confident that your solar panels will function properly. 

The quality of solar panels themselves will determine the lifespan and effectiveness of your energy production. High quality solar panels from well-trusted suppliers decrease your chances of solar panel failure. And, most solar panels are covered by warranty to ensure reliable, dependable custom solar systems.

It’s Unlimited Energy!

Our sun produces more energy than we are able to use! Did you know that more energy falls on the earth from the sunin one hour — than the world uses in one year? As long as our sun is around, there will be power available. Solar panels give us the ability to harness that power and use it in place of traditional energy sources.  There is no limit to the amount of energy available!
