Drastically reduce or eliminate your electric bills
The top benefit of solar energy is pretty straightforward – when you install solar panels for your home, you generate your own electricity, become less reliant on your utility company and reduce your monthly electric bill. A solar panel system typically has a 25-35 year life span, which means that you can cut your electricity cost for decades to come by going solar.
Increase the value of your home
Millions of U.S. homeowners are interested in solar panels but worry about the upfront cost to install them. This fear is laid to rest when you learn that the benefits far outweigh the cost. Recent studies show that property values increase after solar is installed. Thus, even if you're planning to move in the near future, you'll earn back your solar panel investment and then some when you sell your home. That's money back in your pocket.
Reduce your carbon emissions
All of us want a healthier planet. Solar is a clean, renewable source of energy that helps reduce carbon dioxide emissions and lower our impact on the natural environment. Unlike traditional fossil fuels like coal and oil, using solar energy does not lead to greenhouse gasses such as carbon dioxide being released into the atmosphere. Even compared to nuclear energy, solar comes out on top for being a safer, more environmentally friendly solution. For us at Highline Electric, the choice is clear.
Take control of rising energy costs
Many homeowners face anxiety when it comes to their electricity bills because there is nothing you can do to control your utility company's rate. While the cost of solar has decreased by more than 70% in the past decade, the cost of electricity has increased by about 5%, and that trend is expected to continue. Going solar puts you in the driver's seat when it comes to your energy generation. Utilities are quickly adapting to the rising demand for renewable energy and the US government is increasing its goals for greenhouse gas emissions reduction. There has never been a better time to become energy autonomous.
