Signs of Halloween are everywhere. Pumpkins for carving, ghoulish decorations, and scary costumes are on display throughout Arizona. Children are selecting their favorite spooky characters in preparation for the big night of trick-or-treating on October 31. Halloween serves as a great yearly reminder that fall has arrived, bringing with it cooler nights and chilly mornings. Even though the calendar says it’s autumn, there’s still plenty of sunlight to power a home solar system. Dracula doesn’t like sunlight, but you will when you begin to enjoy the tax savings and lower energy bills from installing solar panels. Let’s look at some information to calculate your potential return on investment by installing a clean energy system.
- Begin with an estimate of a solar panel system installed to match your home’s power requirements. Cool Blew Solar’s professional installers will be happy to provide you with a free estimate.
- Then, divide the total estimated installation cost from step 1 by the cost of electricity per watt from your local utility provider, APS or SRP. You can find the cost per watt on your monthly utility bill or by calling your power provider.
- Next, divide the result from step 2 by your monthly electricity usage in kilowatt hours. Then, multiply that number by 12 to get an estimate of your yearly usage.
- The answer from step 3 will give you a one or two-digit number. This number is your payback time measured in years. Better known as the amount of time it will take you to break even on the initial investment in your home’s solar power system. With most solar panels warrantied for 25-30 years, you’ll see that your home’s solar system will pay for itself long before the warranty expires.
