Why Solar ? â€‹
Electricity costs can make up a large portion of the overall budget for your home, business or organization. With a solar panel system, you’ll be generating power over your system’s 25-30 year life cycle. Even if you don’t produce all of the energy you consume, your utility bills still will be much smaller. Either way, you’ll be saving a lot of money.
Solar panels need to be seen not as an expense but as an investment that pays handsome returns often challenging those of more traditional investments such as stocks or bonds. Substantial savings as well as the potential in some areas to generate revenue result in Return on Investment (ROI) of 20% or more, making solar one of the best ways to invest your money.
Because energy prices can be unpredictable, they make managing your budget very difficult, especially for businesses or homeowners whose cash flow changes from month to month. By making these costs more predictable, solar power systems have the added benefit of improving a home or business owner’s expense management capabilities.
Studies predict the clean energy sector will generate over a million ‘green’ jobs over the next 10 – 15 years. Because these jobs tend to be higher paying and sourced locally, they represent a significant contributor to our economy.
Protect the environment Solar is a great way to reduce your carbon footprint. Buildings are responsible for close to 35% of all carbon emissions and going solar can decrease that number significantly. A typical residential solar panel system will eliminate 3-4 tons of carbon emissions each year—roughly the equivalent of planting over 100 trees every year.
Just like consumers, employees have a demonstrated appreciation for their employers’ commitment to operating responsibility. Employees share in the success and contributions of their organizations. When they feel good about where they work, they are more engaged, have higher levels of morale and lower turn-over rates.
Companies quickly are realizing the social and economic benefits of adopting solar power. As early adopters pull ahead of the competition, many companies are exploring solar power as a way to keep up.
