Solar Energy FAQ

What are the benefits of using solar electric power in my home today?

  • There are numerous economic, financial, and environmental benefits to solar electric systems.
  • Minimized electric bills and protection against future utility rate increases
  • Solar electricity reduces your consumption of utility-generated power and the fossil or nuclear fuel that generates it. Solar PV systems help reduce our dependence on foreign energy sources.
  • Significant financial incentives including tax credits and rebates are available, depending on the state in which you live.
  • Increased home value – According to the Appraisal Institute, a solar electric system increases home value by $20,000 for each $1,000 in annual reduced operating costs.
  • Producing electricity with photovoltaic (PV) emits no carbon dioxide, one of the prime contributors to global warming; it does not produce greenhouse gases, and uses no finite fossil-fuel resources.
  • Investment in a solar electric system demonstrates environmental stewardship.
