Affordability / Value
Solar affordability is simple: if you are paying a utility company, you’re overpaying for your energy
If you're paying an electric bill, you are not in control.
Creating your own power can provide homeowners with control over rising electricity costs. The average retail price of electricity for residential customers in the U.S has increased by 20% from 1996 to 2021 and 25% for commercial customers. Additionally, severe weather events in 2021, like the major winter storm in Texas, have led to energy disruptions and higher prices.
Solar energy allows you to have a consistent and predictable payment every month.
It can also provide long-term savings that can boost a home's property value and make it more attractive to potential buyers. According to a study by the U.S. Department of Energy, homebuyers are willing to pay $15,000 or more for a solar-powered home.
