Solar panel

Are you concerned about the environment and your current energy bills? Then you need to look at the alternatives. Installed a solar power system for the use of your household is not something only rich people can afford.

Since 2006, the costs for the installations of these systems dropped with 73%, while the demand increased to 70% at the same time. This meant technology that is more accessible to anyone that wishes a cleaner and sustainable energy while making long-term savings. Need more reasons to make this step? Here are 3 good ones.

1. Save a Lot of Money

This should be the first reason for seriously considering the installation of a solar panel. Do you know how much you can save with a solar system? Of course, we have to take into account the cost of the solar system, how much will it help you save, and see what are the results.

So, to start with, an average solar system installation can cost from $10,000 and can go up to $35,000. Studies made on these systems showed that a person using them can save anything between $44 and $187 in every single month of the first year of usage. Thus, you can easily save sums that range between $528 and $2,244 per year.

Having that in mind, in the best case the costs of the solar system installation will be paid in five years, continuing to save you money for an unlimited period afterward. In 20, such an installation can save you about $20,000, this sum going up to $64,000 in some cases.

2. You Get to Make Precious Investments in Your House and Future

Even if you think about the fact that you may want to sell your house in a few years, you should still invest in a solar system. Not only will you use safe and clean energy for how long you will stay there, but you will also get a better price for your home when you will sell it.

Yes, studies show that the potential buyer of a residence is willing to reach his pocket and come up with $15,000 more if the house he is purchasing has a solar system installed. So, with such an investment, the value of your property will increase for sure and will become more desirable for buyers in the future. You see, you are not the only one thinking about the future.

Not to mention that you are contributing to a better and cleaner future for your children and their children, reducing CO2 and greenhouse gasses, and other pollutants result from the creation and use of traditional energy.

3. You Don’t Need to Rely on Someone for Energy, Enjoying More Security

It’s not like the sun is going anywhere. Also, it won’t increase its rates for energy either. The sun will shine bright no matter what we do, its power being so great that we use only .0001% of what it can provide. With providers that sell energy more and more expensive, with a forecast that announces, even more, increases in the price of energy, installing a solar power system can be a very smart choice. Not only will you enjoy the much cheaper energy, but you will also be able to sell the extra energy back to the grid.

So, a solar system is inexhaustible, in comparison with fossil fuels that can get depleted, energy generators that can always break, and energy providers that can always disappear.
