Is it time to jump on board with a solar-powered photovoltaic (PV) system? Solar power is the one of the most in-demand technology trends for 2021! And it’s no wonder why. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, the cost of going solar has dropped every year since 2009. Here’s why powering your home with solar can reduce your electricity bill, decrease your carbon footprint, and help you gain energy independence.
Just one of the unique attributes of a home solar system is that it can immediately begin generating more electricity than your home consumes, as soon as it’s installed. Solar panels reduce the amount of electricity you need to buy from your local utility company. Investing in solar is a real opportunity for your family to gain more control over monthly electricity charges. You can now be your own utility company for power rather than relying 100% on paying a local utility company for energy. How does that sound? With a properly sized solar PV system, you can dramatically reduce or even eliminate your electric bill.
Reduces Carbon Footprint
Renewable energy alternatives, including solar power, wind power, and geothermal energy, all help to reduce greenhouse emissions. In fact, burning oil, natural gas, and coal for electricity generate about 75% of U.S. greenhouse gas emissions. Investing in solar power gives you the opportunity to avoid using coal, oil, gas, and even uranium for power generation, helping America to transition to clean, renewable energy and reducing your home’s carbon footprint.
Increased Solar Affordability
Did you know for home solar power systems installed in 2021, the federal solar tax credit is 22%? That’s a great incentive for setting up a solar panel system by December 31st. The State of Arizona tax credits, local sales tax exemptions, and property tax exemptions have further fueled the dramatic increase in solar installations. Rapid declines in the cost of manufacturing solar panels means owning a solar home system is more affordable than ever. First-year monthly savings for Phoenix homeowner’s investing in a typical 5-kilowatt solar system results is an average monthly savings of $105.
Installing solar reduces your dependence on fossil fuels, improves your home’s property value, and helps to decrease CO2 emissions.
