Home Solar Systems Advantages

There are plenty of advantages to installing a home solar system, it is challenging to believe that it isn't more trendy than it is. We decided to write about various perks of going solar, since everyone should know that installing residential solar is economical, fast, and it saves you money in the future.


More Money to Invest

When I say decrease the electric bill, I mean the cost goes down from hundreds of dollars to around $10. Maybe even free and maybe even a credit applied to the next month. This benefit is pretty straightforward. When you install clean power for your residence, then you create your own electricity.


You become less dependent on your local utility, you have the capability to completely eliminate your electric bill. A solar power system is built to last about 30 years, which means you can cut your utility costs for decades. Recent studies found property values increase after solar is installed. It’s that simple.


The funny thing is if there were more Toyota Priuses than trucks in the area, then the value increased more. Solar is so popular right now that in a few cases it can increase the value of homes enough to completely offset the price of installation. So, even if you’re planning on moving in a few years, you’ll earn back your panel investment when you sell your home.


Let’s face it, the price of powering your home is more pricey this year than it was last year, and it is not likely to freeze any time soon. This makes everyone nervous because there is nothing you can do to control your rate. Think about this, the price of solar energy has dropped by more than 70 percent in the past decade alone, while the price of electricity has increased by an average of five percent in the same time.


If you go solar, you not only have abundant power, you also have some leverage over those rising costs.


Solar Incentives

There are a number of wonderful solar incentives right now in the U.S. In addition to being able to use 30 percent of the cost of installation as a tax write off in every state, some states have Solar Renewable Energy Credits (SRECs) and Net metering which give homeowners some incredible advantages.


SRECs are a solar incentive that permit homeowners to sell certificates to their utility. Net metering is a different term for the same thing. You get to sell power to the utility company. If you want to move into the future and join the renewable energy revolution, or if you want to find out what panels are right for you, go to and try our price checker tool.


You can see how much a system will cost, and how much you can save over the next 20 years. For more information relating to going solar, don't forget to visit our solar blog section for more handy guides and articles.
