Benefits of Home Solar Power

Solar energy is a clean, renewable energy source that allows you to reduce your environmental impact, increase your energy independence and lower your energy usage all without making lifestyle sacrifices. By going solar, you are choosing an environmentally sustainable lifestyle that will have direct benefits for your family, your community and future generations.

Be a responsible consumer. Choose solar energy.

Sustainable energy generation helps reduce demand on the utility to produce electricity. Since utilities primarily utilize non-renewable generation sources, you will be helping to reduce our communal dependence on fossil fuels that are believed to contribute to global warming.

Energy Independence

Home solar generation can have a considerable impact on your electricity demand and utility bill. For every watt-hour of electricity produced by the solar panels is one less watt-hour demanded from the utility, reducing your energy bill and dependence on the utility. Also, when your solar system generates more electricity than you consume, you will actually be supporting your community by sending excess generated power back into the utility grid. Based on historical energy price trends, the value of producing your own electricity would have increased over the past 10 years.

Home solar is a sustainable, renewable source of energy that will help you significantly lessen your environmental impact. By generating sustainable energy, you are reducing electricity demand on the utility, thus helping to reduce our communal dependence on fossil fuels that are believed to contribute to global warming. Going solar is a sustainable, environmentally conscious lifestyle choice that can directly benefit your family and community.

Considering that solar panels have a life of more than 30 years, your choice will positively benefit the environment for decades. The chart to the right depicts the equivalent environmental impact that an average home solar power system can have over its functional life.

Increased Home Value

A home solar system is one of the few home improvements that have a conveyed value. By reducing electric demand from the utility and lowering your electric bills, solar panels may increase the value of your home. And, unlike most home improvements that depreciate in value with age, solar panels may increase in value over time if electricity prices rise.

According to a study published in The Appraisal Journal, a home's value is increased by $20 for every $1 reduction in annual energy savings. So, if you saved $1,000 per year, you'd increase your home value by $20,000. And, the U.S. Department of Energy's Office of Energy Efficiency & Renewable Energy claims that a home with a solar system may sell twice as fast as a home without solar.
