3 Cost Benefits of Solar Energy

solar-panelsSolar power has been a prominent subject of discussion in California as of late, especially as the state moves forward in its plan to require all new homes to be built with solar panels starting in 2020. If there was ever a place to do this though, California is the state for it. As we all know, Fresno alone gets over 200 days of sun per year, making it a perfect place to enjoy the benefits of solar panels.

The question people pose when discussing solar energy is, of course, the cost. We still relate the idea of solar panel installation and operation with high expenditures. The reality is that this is no longer the case. While solar might have a slightly higher price tag initially, it actually saves homeowners more money in the long run.

We want to give you some information on the benefits of using solar panels for your home’s energy needs. If you want to take advantage of these benefits, we would love to help you set up an appointment for solar installation.

If you are wondering if solar panels are worth the cost, we want to assure you they are. In fact, they will help you save more money than you spend on them over time. Here are three big cost benefits that come with using solar panels in Fresno, CA:

1. The Cost of Solar Keeps Going Down

Solar used to be seen as an egregiously expensive addition to a home that costs more to run than it was worth. However, the science has continued to become more advanced. What this means is that the cost of solar panels has gone done. In fact, since the year 2009, solar panel costs have only and the soft costs associated with them have only gone down and are expected to continue doing so.

2. Your System Will Quickly Pay For Itself

Permitting and installation costs can seem a little high when you purchase a solar energy system. However, this system will pay for itself faster than you think. Not only will you reduce your electric bill because you are barely using the electrical grid anymore, but you are also benefiting from a renewable energy source that doesn’t need to be paid for (i.e. oil).

3. Solar Helps You Save on Your Utility Bills

When you choose to use solar energy, your use of electricity will go down because you simply aren’t pulling energy from the electric grid as much, if at all. As an added bonus, this means you won’t have to worry about pricing hikes attached to Time-of-Use rates. As an added bonus, you might even be able to enjoy compensation from your electric company when you send them any excess energy that you generate.
