Valentine’s Day is almost here. Do you know what special gift you will be giving your Valentine? This year, how about giving the gift of solar! From day one when you flip the switch on, solar begins saving you money on your utility bills. Month after month, you’ll be purchasing less electricity from your local energy company, generating more of your own clean energy, and helping to reduce your carbon footprint. A wonderful way to show your love for planet earth. Here are six reasons why you should give the gift of solar this Valentine’s Day.
The cost of going solar is lower than it ever has been. With a home solar panel system, you’ll generate free energy for the entire lifespan of your system, which can be upwards of 35 to 40 years.
Increase Home Value
Research shows that houses with solar energy are about 5% higher in property value. Homebuyers are increasingly looking for homes with solar panels already installed, and your home will sell faster than homes without rooftop panels.
Reduce Electricity Costs
One of the best reasons to have solar panels installed is the reduction in your electricity bills. You’ll be relying less on your local utility as electricity costs can be an ever-increasing expense.
By going solar, you’ll be better equipped to manage your expenses against unforeseen increases in electricity costs which have historically risen over time. This is especially beneficial for homeowners with fluctuations in monthly cash flow.
One study has shown that a single solar panel installation offsets 178 tons of carbon dioxide over 30 years which is equivalent to planting 10 football fields of trees. Generating solar energy does not cause harm to the environment and further reduces reliance on fossil fuels.
Solar panels have a high return on investment (ROI) due to the dramatic decrease in monthly electricity bills. On average, a homeowner can pay off their solar panel system in seven to eight years and can have an ROI ranging from 10% to 30%.
