Earth day was first celebrated on April 22nd, 1970. The goal was a world-wide appreciation for the planet and considering how it can be made a better place for generations to come. Every year, 180 countries celebrate and reflect on the bettering the environment.At Raynor Electric, we want to do our part. This is why we offer solar energy alternatives for your home or business.
Not only will switching allow you to help the environment, but a solar installation will help to protect your wallet too! Regardless of the obvious benefits, many people are still hesitant about making the switch to solar. So, here are some facts that may help you make a decision.
Soon after you have panels installed on the roof of your home or business, you’ll start to reap the benefits. You may be worried about upfront costs, but did you know that your new roof will be able to pay you back in as little as five years? How many other home investments can make their money back? Some other benefits include:
- Reduced energy costs. Solar power keeps your money where it should be – in your wallet. It literally makes electricity for you, so no more sky high electrical bills. As soon as you start to offset your power, you’ll start saving.
- Increased property value. Do you need a way to add instant property value? If so, solar panels are the way to go! Energy efficiency is a major selling point. Not only will you be saving on your utilities, but prospective buyers will certainly take notice.
- Added revenue. Did you know that going solar can earn you extra money? Federal, state, local, and utility incentives are making the decision to switch easier than ever. A considerable portion of your system can possibly be funded.
- Investment. Solar technology is one of the safest ways to invest your money. As electrical costs rise, the benefits increase.
Can You Go Solar?
Most people assume that their home needs to be in open and direct sunlight all day for solar panels to work. The truth is, unless your home is almost completely surrounded by trees, there’s a good chance that your home qualifies. There are four deciding factors that apply when when switching to solar: roof space, roof orientation, roof slope, and shading. If your home meets the requirements, you’re good to go!
