The Benefits of Solar Power

You’ve heard the saying, “If it’s not one thing, it’s another.” With solar energy, it’s all things coming together to create a very strong pull to make the sun part of your energy equation. Between the financial, environmental, and even public relations benefits, more and more building owners and homeowners are making the move. Of course, you can find website after website filled with the praises of going solar, and we invite you to surf. But here are our Top 10 Reasons:

REASON #1: Energy Cost Stabilization

It doesn’t take a Nobel Prize winning economist to predict that energy costs for building owners and homeowners are going to keep rising. When you add solar to your mix, you’re able to control your own energy costs and provide some predictability for future financial planning. Can you say lower electric bills?

REASON 2: Financial Incentives are Available

The news keeps getting better. A 30% Federal income tax credit coupled with generous state grants and loan incentives makes this a great time to consider solar. Check here for state by state incentives:

REASON 3: Adding Value to Your Home or Building

Sooner or later you may want to sell what you own. If your home or office building is solar equipped you’ll probably be able to sell faster and at a higher price. One study by ICF Consulting explains that saving $1 a year on energy costs adds $20 to your home’s value. So if you saved $1,000, you’d increase your home value by $20,000. And the U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Energy Efficiency & Renewable Energy says that a home with solar will sell twice as fast as a home without solar.

REASON 4: Reduce Your Carbon Footprint
