To Go Solar, Or Not To Go Solar?
Whether your home is in a residential development or on a beautiful property outside of the city, solar could be a great fit for you. One of the most common questions we get from home and business owners looking to go solar is whether or not they should wait a few months, or even a year to make the switch. It’s an understandable question, as there is always something in the news about a newer solar panel, or other new and exciting technology that would seemingly make solar less expensive.
However, it is almost always better to go solar sooner rather than later. Waiting can actually increase the net cost, as well as reducing other benefits long term. Some of the biggest reasons to go solar now are:
- Cost Savings
- State incentives and production benefits are reducing
- Awesome technology is already available
If you decide to go solar today versus a year from now, that’s an entire year of high utility bills that you will be paying! Whether you purchase your system upfront or decide to finance you will be saving money. If you finance your system you will be trading your monthly utility bill for a lower monthly payment on your solar system. When purchasing upfront or financing you are still making clean energy to power your home. Either way the savings are worth it and better spent on something that you enjoy.
State incentives and production benefits are going strong right now but could be reduced in the future. While going solar is always a great option it is a good idea to take advantage of the current incentives available!
The solar panels available today are already efficient enough to offset 100% of your electricity needs using only your existing roof space. Waiting or purchasing more efficient solar panels only reduces the number of panels needed in a system. Most of our customers agree that having a system with 2 or less panels than they currently have is not worth the time and cost of waiting for them to become available.
