Reasons to Switch to Solar Energy

Solar power is abundant, renewable, and sustainable. A growing number of Americans are switching to solar power as the cost of doing so decreases yearly. Currently, there are more than a million solar installations throughout the nation. Additional advantages of converting to solar electricity are listed below.

Cost Reduction

Major advantages of going solar include financial gains and cheaper monthly electricity expenditures. The following factors determine the precise savings you'll see with solar:

  • usage of electricity

  • Size of a solar energy system

  • Regardless of whether you buy or rent your system

  • direct sunlight all day long

  • Size and roof-angle

  • rates for local electricity.

Anyone wishing to make a long-term, low-risk investment while lowering monthly power expenses should consider installing a solar electric system.

Increased value of homes

Investing in a solar energy system is likely to raise the value of your property because solar panels are seen as renovations, much like a refurbished kitchen or a finished basement. According to studies, homeowners pay more for solar-powered homes; one such study by the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory revealed that, on average, solar panels add $15,000 to a home's worth. Solar homes can sell for more than homes without PV, even though market considerations like electricity rates and system size may have an impact on the size of the premium.

The sun shines everywhere.

The United States has a vast solar resource. In fact, the annual demand for electricity in the United States is met by just one hour of summertime sun at midday. The majority of states in the US have good to exceptional solar resources. Even regions with little solar resources, like the Pacific Northwest and Alaska, can nevertheless save money and have solar resources comparable to those found in Germany and other nations with a strong solar PV industry.


Each kilowatt-hour (kWh) of solar energy produced will significantly lower emissions of harmful pollutants including sulfur oxides, nitrogen oxides, and particulate matter, as well as greenhouse gases like CO2. Solar sunlight decreases water withdrawal and use.
