With rising energy costs, many homeowners are asking, “Is there any relief?” The answer is YES! Thousands of homeowners in California have done their research and found solar to be a cost-effective, environmentally responsible way to reduce or zero their electric bills. There is some satisfaction in a solution that reduces dependence on the supply and prices offered by the local utility company. The challenge is out there. How will you handle the rising cost of power?
For many, the decision to add a solar electric system to their home or business is easy. The benefits are numerous and convincing. But realistically, it boils down to two reasons for choosing solar. First, the environmental benefits truly are compelling. How do we want to leave the earth for our kids, and their kids? What can we do to protect and preserve our environment? No one disagrees that reducing our dependence on foreign oil and going green is the right thing to do. However, many times it is the economics of installing a solar electric system for your power needs that tips the scales for many homeowners. With the rebates and tax incentives paying back about a third of the total cost of the system, now is a great time to stop the insanity of unstable energy costs. For those wanting predictable utility costs in retirement years, a solar system provides that protection.
The bigger issue for most households is where a solar electric system lines up in the home-improvement wish list. Which comes first? Do you remodel the kitchen, add a swimming pool, or put in a solar system? The costs could be about the same; however, the solar system does one thing the other improvements do not. It yields a payback in the form of lower monthly utility bills, and over eight to ten years the cumulative savings can exceed the cost.
