What’s keeping you from switching to solar energy?
There could be a couple of reasons. Perhaps you’re hesitant because the cost of buying and installing solar panels can hit $20,000 or higher depending on your consumption, location, and size of your home. Or maybe you aren’t fully sold on the benefits of solar energy.
Well, you really have no solid reason to not go green and embrace solar power. If cost is your biggest problem, for example, there are federal, state, and dealer incentives that can all amount to significant savings.
Here’s are more compelling reasons to go green by switching to solar energy.
Help Save the Environment
According to some scientists, it’s only a matter of years before climate change becomes irreversible and the planet gets too hot for mankind.
You might not live long enough to see this catastrophe, but what about your kids and their kids? Don’t you want to leave behind a planet where your generation can thrive?
If you do, it’s not too late to help make a change. Individually, your efforts, such as discarding fossil electricity and using solar power, might not seem consequential, but as more and more people start using renewable energy sources, the reliance on fossil fuels for electricity will reduce significantly. This will also lead to a big reduction in greenhouse emissions, which are a leading cause of climate change.
It’s 2021, a time when the COVID-19 pandemic has caused severe human and economic destruction. If you’re among those feeling the economic effects of the coronavirus, you’re probably looking for ways to spend less money and save more.
Yet, your bills, especially electric bills, have probably shot up.
Solar power, along with other green solutions, can save you money. Solar power can reduce your energy bills to zero if you buy and install solar panels and disconnect your home from the fossil power grid. There are several solar companies ready to offer you great deals on solar panels.
You’re not alone if you’re worried about the high upfront cost of solar power. There are incentives you can take advantage of, such as the benefit of the solar tax credit provided by the federal government; but if still, they aren’t enough, you have the option to connect your home to a solar power grid
Increase the Value of Your Residence
There are several things you can do to help increase the value of your home, chief among them making structural upgrades and remodels.
That’s all fine, but if you want the best return on your investment, go solar. In 2021 and beyond, sustainable homes are the in-thing. A solar-powered home not only gains value quickly and greatly but also sells a lot faster when placed on the market.
Go Green and Save the Earth, and More
It’s not too late to go green and start reaping the benefits. Switching to solar power, in particular, will do not just the environment a lot of good, but also your finances.
