Solar energy is sustainable, renewable, and plentiful. As the cost of using solar to produce electricity is becoming more affordable, many homeowners are making the change to renewable energy. Financial returns and eliminating monthly utility bills are major incentives for going solar. The exact savings you will see with solar depends on your homes electricity consumption, size of your solar system, direct hours of sunlight, and the size and angle of your roof. Solar panels are viewed as upgrades! Just like a renovated kitchen or a finished basement, adding a solar system to your home will likely increase your home’s value. Additionally, each kilowatt-hour (kWh) of solar that is generated will substantially reduce greenhouse gas emissions like CO2, as well as other dangerous pollutants such as sulfur oxides, and nitrogen oxides.
Homeowners see the value to buying their property opposed to renting. As homeowners make payments on their loan or if the value of the home goes up, they achieve equity. When you buy, you have all the more freedom to rework your space to match your style and needs. Lastly, homeowners typically have more privacy when they own a home compared to renting.
