about Solar



Does Solar make sense?

Solar costs less than other forms of energy production

The reason you see solar going up all around you, from your neighbors to big companies like Disney and Wal-Mart, is because solar makes financial sense for most people and businesses. The overwhelming majority of people who get a quote for a residential solar system find that their solar payment is less than their electric bill. Not only that, but utility rates continue to rise and when you make your own power, you are exempt from that. For people who can take advantage of federal tax incentives, the deal gets even sweeter. Why solar makes good money sense:

1) Your solar payment will be less than your average electric bill.

2) Replacing your utility bill with a solar payment protects you from utility rate hikes.

3) In 2021 and 2022, if you pay income tax, you are eligible for a federal tax credit of 26% of the total cost of your system.

4) You’ll lock in a low, predictable payment every month instead of a fluctuating bill.

5) Solar loans currently offer interest rates of less than 1%.

6) At the end of your loan, you won’t pay any more, but your solar system will still make energy.

Some people worry that at the end of their loan they’ll have to replace their solar system. This couldn’t be further than the truth. Most systems have a 25 year warranty, but doesn’t mean they stop making energy at the 25 year mark. (Does your car stop working when the warranty runs out? If it did, all those spammers calling you would be making a killing!) Solar systems lose efficiency slowly over time. However the average solar system lasts 40 years or more, and its benefits get passed on to the next owner if the home changes hands.



Solar energy is the most abundant energy resource available. 173,000 terawatts of solar energy reach the Earth continuously. That's more than 10,000 times the planet’s total energy use.(Source:

Why wouldn’t we use it?



Solar is the future (and the present). The US Energy Information Administration (EIA) predicts renewable energy to jump from 20% of the energy pie in 2020 to 22% in 2021. The EIA also projects that solar will account for 39% of all new US electricity generation in 2021, beating out wind for the first time. (Source: Yahoo Finance)

The world is investing in solar because it makes sense!



Even with current manufacturing practices, a solar panel’s carbon footprint is about 20 times less than coal. Your carbon footprint decreases as soon as you install solar panels on your home. At three years, your electricity production becomes carbon neutral. After that, your carbon footprint is reduced even further. (Source:

Contribute to a better climate future by going solar!



That’s how many years your rooftop solar panels will make electricity. While your warranty may be for only 25 years, your solar panels will continue to produce electricity (albeit at a less efficient rate) for decades to come!

Don’t underestimate solar!
