HELP THE ENVIRONMENT
Help to reduce the amount of coal burning energy being used, by generating your own solar electricity. Coal burning power stations are one of the biggest causes of carbon pollution, so reducing your dependency on the grid will help the environment considerably.
With energy prices rising all the time, the one thing that you can do to protect yourself and your family from big bills, especially during the winter months, is to generate your own power.
This may seem like an impossible dream, but it may not be as expensive nor as difficult to arrange, as you think it is.
And remember, any money you spend on the installation will soon be recouped by falling energy prices.
We would estimate that your energy bills could fall by 15-30% each year and you will see the benefits immediately.
The installation will have paid for itself within three to six years of being up and running.
The savings could add up to $30000 over twenty years – this is a typical figure, but exact amounts could vary from area to area.
SOLAR INSTALLATION CAN BOOST THE VALUE OF YOUR HOME
It is not only through smaller energy bills that you may save money with your solar installation. It can also be a great way of boosting the value of your home.
Generally, homes with solar panels and installations sell for more than similar properties without any.
If you think about it, not only are the reduced bills an incentive for a buyer to choose your home over one with regular energy costs, but then there is the chance that maybe energy firms might be handing over checks to them, that might sway their opinions!
THERE ARE INCENTIVES TO INSTALL SOLAR PANELS
You could recoup up to 30% of the cost of installing a solar energy system to your home. And then there may be local incentive schemes in your area, which you can also take advantage of.
On a system worth $25k you might be able to recoup $7.5k back and that is before we start talking about SRECs (Solar Renewable Energy Credits).
These could earn between $5k and $7k a year if you sell them.
SOLAR PANELS ARE A LONGTERM INVESTMENT
When you install a solar energy system, this is usually guaranteed for between twenty and twenty-five years – but the reality is that they could last for much longer than this!
