There are several questions homeowners, farmers, or businesses may ask themselves when considering solar energy as an alternative source. Here are three key reasons why you should switch to solar.
Investing in Solar Power
The first reason to go solar is that this power source is a great return on your investment. Once solar panels are installed on your home, farm, or building you can immediately begin to see a reduction in your energy costs. You can see a reduction in electricity costs and the costs to heat and cool your home or building.
Tax Credits, Solar Grants and SREC’s
Besides reducing energy costs, there are several ways to earn or offset the costs of your solar panels. There are a variety of tax credits for solar, solar grants, SREC’s (Solar Renewable Energy Credits), and Sunrise Solar even offer money towards customers who send us referral projects. By adding solar panels to your home you can even see your property values increase.
Saving with Solar
Another major reason people and businesses choose solar energy is to hedge against increasingly volatile energy costs. Electricity and gas costs can increase every year, and sometimes at astronomical rates. With solar panels in place, you can easily predict your costs and hedge against rising or volatile rates.
And a third reason to go solar is to help the environment. Solar power can help you reduce your carbon footprint and create a more sustainable society. A single residence can reduce carbon emissions by 3-4 tons of carbon by installing solar panels. That is equivalent to planting 100 tresses.
These are just a few of the many reasons people go solar. Contact Sunrise Solar to begin making the switch to solar.
