None of us are Tony Stark, so it’s unlikely any of us have an arc reactor that can turn our homes into “a beacon of self-sustaining clean energy.” But if you’re looking for a way to save money on energy costs in your home, look no further than solar panels. Here are three reasons you should go solar…
It’s a great investment: Having a solar system (not the space kind) can do wonders for the resale value of your home. In 2016, a nationwide study by the US Department of Energy’s Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, saw resale values increase by an average of $4 for every solar watt installed. So, for a standard 5,000-watt system, your home’s value could increase by $20,000!
It feels good to go green: Most of us do our best to recycle, and some of us even pick up trash when we see it. Having a solar system in your home is a great way to do even more. If you’re concerned about your carbon footprint, solar can reduce it by up to 20% annually.
You’ll save a lot of money: Going solar provides you with a great chance of completely eliminating your power bill. Did you catch that? Even if you’re consuming more energy than your system produces, your power bill will still be drastically reduced. Who wouldn’t love for their power bill to be a smaller factor in their budget?
