As energy costs continue to rise, solar power is becoming an increasingly popular option for homeowners. Sunshine is plentiful, highly efficient and relatively easy to harness with the proper equipment. Here are three significant benefits of going solar in your Boston home:Modern Exterior by Seattle Architects & Building Designers David Vandervort Architects
- Experience substantial cost savings – The electrical power produced by solar equipment can eliminate much if not all of your monthly electricity bill. Depending on the size and extent of the solar power panels and equipment, you can generate enough electricity to cut your electrical bill in half or more. If you generate more electricity than you need, you can usually sell this excess power to your utility company.
- Increase the value of your home – Solar power systems can increase the value and desirability of your home. A prospective buyer who sees that a solar installation is already in place will recognize that electricity costs for this home will be lower. A solar power system can add several thousand dollars to the resale value of your home. In addition, homes with solar power systems already installed tend to sell faster than homes without them.
- Decrease your environmental impact – Solar power is extremely clean and efficient, which means it will help reduce your carbon footprint. When you use less electrical power, local utility companies burn less coal or other fuels to generate power. Residential solar power systems can help conserve thousands of gallons of water while reducing reliance on fossil fuels, foreign fuel suppliers and non-renewable energy resources.
