Value of Solar

Most solar systems are designed to meet at least half of the energy needs for the homeowner. In some cases, solar systems can provide up to 70 or 80 percent of the overall energy needs!
Solar energy is one of the best ways to contribute to saving the environment. Solar energy users save 75 million barrels of oil and 35 million tons of carbon dioxide annually. By reducing your carbon footprint, you contribute to the decreasing of global warming, acid rain and smog because solar energy is a renewable resource and releases no CO2 or other greenhouse gases.
Did you know? The world’s energy demands for an entire year can be met by the amount of sunlight that hits the Earth in one minute.
Studies have shown that if you install a solar system, your neighbor is two time more likely to install one too!
Cost of Solar
The cost of solar has steadily been dropping over the last 30 years. According to Bloomberg, the cost in 1977 was $76.67 per watt. In 2014, the cost was just 36 cents per watt.
