Build a Sustainable Future With Solar Energy

Solar energy is gaining momentum all across the US and the world, and for good reasons.

With economic issues and climate crisis keeping everyone on their toes, it became difficult to think of a bright future.

But with solar energy, the world can become a better place.

Yes, you read that right. Solar energy does more than simply reducing your utility bills.

It has the power to boost our economy, create more job opportunities, and lower the intensity of climate change.

Solar Power and The Environment

Has Low Carbon Footprint

In 2020, the US electric power industry was responsible for 1.55 billion metric tons of CO2 emissions.

This has been the biggest issue with traditional energy resources like fossil fuels—the emission of harmful greenhouse gases. These gases pollute the environment, affect ecosystems, and lead to health hazards.

This is why solar energy is the future. While generating power, solar panels do not create any emissions.

With every kW of solar energy, your carbon footprint reduces by 3000 pounds, yearly.

So with a 6 kW solar system, you can decrease your carbon footprint by 18,000 pounds in a single year.

Improves Air Quality

The World Health Organization (WHO) recently revealed that 99% of the global population inhales polluted air, i.e., air that surpasses WHO’s air quality limits.

Severe air pollution impacts the respiratory tracts in the worst ways possible, leading to chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), asthma, and lung cancer.

Reducing reliance on fossil fuels and focusing more on renewable energy can bring some respite if we start taking action now. With more and more people embracing solar power, the emission of greenhouse gases will go down significantly.

As a result, air quality will improve, and the severity of respiratory diseases will remain under control.

No Water Wastage

PV cells operate independently of water. From producing energy to converting it into electricity, there is no need for water. You only need it when it’s time to clean the panels.

On the other hand, traditional methods of energy production are water-intensive—in the US, thermoelectric plants running on fossil fuel need 500 billion liters of fossil fuel every day!

Going solar is a sustainable solution, as it conserves water, and makes sure groundwater is not further depleted.

Slows Down Climate Change

Unsustainable use of fossil fuels is one of the major causes of climate change.

The greenhouse gases create a heat trap, and the temperature of the planet goes up unusually.

It leads to global warming, affecting ecosystems, the flora and the fauna, and of course, us—humans.

This has been going on for a long period, and as a result, our climate has undergone a drastic change.

In the past few years, we have seen more tornadoes, floods, and droughts than ever before.

Reducing the use of fossil fuels might slow down climate change if solar energy gains prominence.

Limited Land Usage

Setting up fossil fuel-run power plants requires big stretches of land.

Because of the installation, not only does the land get occupied, but also the local ecosystem gets affected.

The good news is that solar panels do not have any such demands.

If you go for roof-mount panels, you don’t need any excess space than the rooftop of your house.

In other cases, solar panels can be installed in faraway, barren lands, so you don’t have to sacrifice usable lands for energy production.

How Solar Power Impacts The Society & Economy

Creates Job Opportunities

The US solar energy industry created more than 2,55,000 job opportunities in 2021, 9% higher than in 2020.

From manufacturing, installation, and maintenance, to marketing, the sector needs a great amount of workforce to run efficiently. As the industry grows more popular and starts to flourish, more jobs will be created.

So besides offering a safe and secure energy alternative, solar energy is controlling unemployment to a certain extent and boosting the economy.


Reduces Utility Expenses

Utility bills are skyrocketing every year. In the last one year, electricity expenses across the US have gone up by 16%.

Switching to solar will drastically cut down your electricity bills, saving you around $1500 in a year.

After applying the state and federal tax incentives and available solar rebates, the cost of solar panels goes down.

With all the money you save every year along with net metering, the panel will pay for itself. So it’s time to stop renting electricity and own your energy source.


Promotes Energy Independence

In the last 5 years, extreme weather caused over 100 annual power outages on average every year.

Solar power addresses this issue efficiently. If you have batteries for power backup, you can be entirely energy-independent during natural disasters.

Not just due to bad weather, any form of power outage will not affect your home—as long as your batteries are fully charged, you’ll have access to electricity.

Another way to live without depending on traditional energy resources is to use an off-grid solar system.

There won’t be a power issue even when you’re in the remotest region, far away from electrical grids.


Makes Your Property Future-Proof

Fossil fuel is expected to become exhausted in the near future, but solar energy isn’t under any similar threat.

Today, solar energy accounts for only over 3% of total electricity generated in the US, but with the newly announced 30% federal tax credit, increasing utility prices, and climate crisis, the demand for solar energy will shoot up in the coming years. By 2050, 45% of total electricity in the US will come from solar power, as projected by the Department of Energy.

So if you want to make your residential or commercial property future-proof, this is the moment. Besides enjoying clean energy, you’ll also enjoy a higher home value, as solar panels boost property prices by 4.1%.

Cutting your power bills down to size isn’t the only way solar power saves you money. You may also be eligible for tax credits. These incentives are designed to encourage solar energy use.

Q: What is the process for going solar?

A: After you complete your solar panel purchase, we will forward your paperwork to our trusted installer partner. Our project team and the Installer will then work together to customize your design plan and begin the installation process. Once the system is installed and connected to the grid, you can start enjoying the benefits of solar energy and begin saving on your energy bills!

Q: How long will the installation process take?

A: The length of the installation process can vary depending on factors such as the size of the system, location, and utility company. On average, the installation process takes between 2 to 4 months from start to finish. Our team will work closely with you throughout the process to ensure that everything is completed as efficiently and quickly as possible.

Q: Will solar panels affect the value of my home?

A: Absolutely! According to recent reports, solar panels can increase the value of your home right away. In addition to saving you money on energy bills, solar panels are an attractive feature for homebuyers who are looking for homes with sustainable and eco-friendly features. By installing solar panels on your home, you can potentially increase its resale value and make it a more attractive option for potential buyers.

Q: What happens to the system if I Move?

A: If you own your solar panel system, you can relocate it or include it in your home’s value. If you leased the system, you can pay it off and take it with you or transfer it to the new homeowner. You can also include the payoff amount in your listing price.

Q: Can I store excess energy generated by my solar panels?

A: Yes, you can store excess energy generated by your solar panels by installing a solar storage battery. If your system includes a battery, any excess energy produced will be sent there for later use. However, if your system does not have a battery, excess energy will be sent to the utility grid until sundown and credited to your next billing cycle.

Q: Can solar panels be added later?

A: If your roof has the room for additional panels, you can install more panels!

Q: What happens during a power outage or bad weather?

During a power outage or bad weather, your solar system will shut off automatically for safety reasons. This is because it’s not safe to send power out to the grid while workers are attempting to fix the power outage. Although weather conditions such as rain and snow can affect system production, solar panels will still continue to produce energy on a cloudy or foggy day. Our free solar wizard includes battery backup information!
