Why go solar now? Solar energy remains one of the smartest investments you can make to reduce monthly reliance on your local utility company for your energy needs. Until recent years, the cost of going solar was too expensive for many people. Now, most homeowners can install a complete solar energy power system for a low-down payment or even no money down. Let’s look at why installing a solar system is the right thing to do.
Smart Financial Decision
The cost of electricity generated from solar panels is consistently less than the cost of electricity from your local power company. The starting cost for the average 6 kWh home system in Arizona ranges from $13,680 to $16,020 with the average cost per watt between $2.49 to $2.67. These costs are before claiming the 2021 federal tax credit value of 22% and any potential state and local tax incentives, and rebates.
Solar panels don’t rely on fossil fuels to run. In other words, with a home solar system, you literally have your own power plant on your roof—that you own! Properly installed and maintained solar panels can reliably generate green, clean energy for your home for the next 30 to 40 years or even longer with rapid advances in panel technologies.
Inflation, world events, rogue cyber criminals, natural disasters, building new power plants, and shutting down non-climate friendly power plants can cause energy volatility and sudden electricity price increases. If you want a choice in how you manage your monthly household budget, going solar will reduce uncertainty and decrease your energy bills.
There are specialized loans designed solely for going solar. Depending on your zip code and solar incentives, you can take advantage of financial incentives to purchase a home solar system sooner than you might think.
Going solar can add real value to your house. By utilizing tools, such as the Solar PV Value website, funded in part by the U.S. Department of Energy’s SunShot Initiative, you’ll be able to easily estimate the increased value of your home in future years by going solar.
