If you’ve been putting off installing solar panels for your home, you may want to consider getting it done before summer. If you can get your solar system up and running in the spring months, you’ll be all set to maximize your energy savings and take advantage of the long days of summer sun.
You can store excess energy for later use on cloudy or rainy days when there is not as much sunlight available; or depending on your electric company, you may actually be able to sell excess energy back to the utility. That is a win-win when it comes to saving on energy costs!
Tax incentives are still available for 2019, so this can help you save on the price of installation. Solar is a renewable energy source, so you will be doing your part to help the environment as well as saving on your own energy bills.
Did you also know that going solar can increase your home’s value? If you ever think of selling your home, installed solar panels can increase your home’s value by as much as $12,000 to $15,000, according to a Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory report on solar and home values.
Are you still wondering if solar energy will really save you money on your energy bills? Generally, if your current utility bill is at least $75, you stand to save some money by installing solar panels.
There are many reasons to go solar–saving on energy, creating a clean energy source onsite, and increasing your homes value, just to name a few. Why not take advantage of these reasons and get your solar panels installed before summer to maximize your energy savings!
