Solar power energy is truly the wave of the future for Southern California residents with more and more people adding solar to their homes each year. The benefits of adding solar are many and diverse but the primary three that our customers have experienced are the financial savings, increased home value, as well as the peace of mind that they are doing their part to protect and preserve the environment.
Switching to solar power energy for your home is good for your electricity costs! Our clients notice a drastic reduction on their energy bills when they switch to solar with many seeing a return on their investments within a year. The systems our San Diego solar company install typically provide our customers with a 15-20% savings on their utility bill which can add up to $30,000 or more over the course of 20 years. There are significant savings available when your home depends more on your own electrical energy and less on your local utility.
Switching to solar power energy is good for your home value! Numerous studies have shown that solar panels add value to your home and help it sell faster, often in half the time! Solar homes with an average system size of 3.1 kW sold for approximately $17,000 more than non-solar homes. More often than not, homeowners understand the importance of energy costs and are eager to purchase a home with existing lower energy bills. If you have a solar lease, transferring the lease or outright ownership to the new homeowner is simple.
Switching to solar power energy in San Diego is good for the environment! Traditional electricity is powered by fossil fuel and purchased from companies that burn coal, natural gas or petroleum to create electricity. These fuels are detrimental to the environment. A home that produces enough solar powered energy to cover all or most of their electrical needs will help to offset their carbon footprint and become part of the solution to the problem. An average size 6 kW photovoltaic system that produces just under 10,000 kWh will have immense benefits on the environment. A system this size would reduce the carbon footprint equivalent to 16,000 pounds of CO2, reduce emissions equivalent to not driving 16,000 miles in a standard car, as well as compare to planting 181 seedlings that have been grown for ten years.
