Solar power is the earth’s most abundant resource of energy. As one of the cheapest forms of electricity across the United States, solar dramatically reduces greenhouse gas emissions and is proven to help slow climate change.
According to SEIA.org, the carbon emissions that have been reduced by solar installations across the nation equates to planting over 1.6 billion trees. By switching to solar, you can reduce your own carbon footprint and help better the environment for generations. It’s literally a breath of fresh air.
Utility rates are continuously on the rise year over year. Solar not only significantly reduces your electricity costs, but it offers you long term price protection throughout the length of your agreement.
Depending on the state you live in, you’re also eligible for net metering which allows you to build credits with your utility company for every time your system overproduces — that extra energy will be pushed into the grid and you’ll be credited on your account for future use.
