The Power of Solar: 7 Reasons Why It’s Time to Harness Renewable Energy

This entry was posted in Solar Services on by .

An increasing number of Peoria homeowners are choosing to make the switch to solar. Why? They learned some of the compelling reasons why there’s never been a better time to invest in a home solar power system.

Not sure what the reasons are yet? Our solar services team is here to answer all your questions and provide you with a detailed quote. Of course, you’re probably already aware that solar can save you substantially on your utility bill. But there are plenty of other reasons to make the switch now.

Solar Power Benefits Our Local and Global Environment

Simply put, solar energy is a clean, green source of energy that enables you to reduce your carbon footprint. It doesn’t rely on greenhouse gases and requires little in the way of resources to maintain—other than water for cleaning. It’s self-sufficient, safe, and can put your family on the path toward a more sustainable future.

You Can Go Off the Grid

Solar panel prices have dropped substantially over the last few years, and they’re more efficient than ever. Once they’re on your roof, you can officially achieve energy-independent status, particularly if you add a solar battery storage system to store electricity for nighttime and those rare cloudy days.

Solar Power Reduces Electricity Loss

Electricity produced in power plants is distributed by a complex network. During transmission from the plant to homes and businesses, some of that power is lost. In contrast, energy collected from home solar panels is dramatically more efficient, going straight from your system to your home. This means you’re in control of your energy usage and are no longer vulnerable to service interruptions.

Solar Power Improves Grid Security

As more homeowners choose to go solar, there is less demand on the grid. This reduces the chance of blackouts and brownouts to the larger community.

Solar Power Creates US-based Jobs and Local Economic Growth

Our economy is boosted by growth in solar power. For example, the more Peoria residents opt for solar, the more need for local workers to install solar panels. This creates jobs for skilled workers and helps keep the local economy flourishing.

Solar Power Is Free Energy

The sun provides all of us with more energy than we could ever possibly use. And no one can monopolize or rein in its infinite power. From the moment your home’s solar system is turned on, you’ll start benefiting from this free source of energy. The longer it’s operating, the more savings you’ll reap.

Solar Power Optimizes Space

That space on your home’s roof is put to good use once solar panels are installed. Similarly, solar power created on solar farms uses once underutilized land to generate valuable power that can be used to power homes throughout the Valley of the Sun and beyond.
