Homes with solar systems typically generate 50 to 90% of the energy they use every year from solar power. This can lead to significant savings since solar energy is more affordable than electricity from the utility company.
What happens if I decide to sell my house?
A solar system can save you money today and even pay for itself in as little as five to seven years. Even if you move before your solar investment is completely paid off, studies show the cost will likely be returned in added value to your home.
Is my home a good candidate for solar power?
There are many factors that determine whether or not solar power will work for you. First, you must own the home where you want solar installed and have high utility bills. Typically homeowners spent over $150 per month on electricity before installing solar.
How does solar power work at night?
Battery storage may be ideal for some small scale PV systems. However, this method requires additional maintenance, and can be very costly. Most customers remain connected to the grid for access to continuous, reliable electricity at all times.
Is solar power less expensive than electricity from my utility?
Yes! Some solar systems produce more electricity than is used each month, bringing net electricity costs to $0.
