How making the switch to solar can save you money
Solar panels are becoming more and more common across the United States. In fact, Las Vegas leads the region in solar energy production. To continue to encourage residents to make the switch to clean energy, many states are providing tax incentives. Additionally, you earn money for generating electricity as well. Making the switch to home solar with Smart Connect is an environmentally friendly way to produce energy and save some money at the same time.
Help the Environment
It should be breaking-news that solar energy is good for the environment. What might come as a surprise though, is how much better solar is for the environment than traditional energy sources.
Traditionally, we rely on non-renewable energy sources such as coal, nuclear, and fossil fuels. These release CO₂ and other greenhouse gases into the atmosphere. While solar panels still produce CO₂, solar photovoltaic (PV) produces a fraction of fossil fuels. Solar PV only puts out 50g of CO₂ per kilowatt hour (kWh). Twenty times cleaner than coal.
Cut back on costs
You can also feel good about saving money. Having a choice in where you get your energy from means that you have options in terms of cost. Through Smart Connect, you can start generating your own energy with no down payment.
Because you are generating your own energy, solar PV allows you to pay your energy bill off for good. This works because the energy company actually pays you for the energy that you generate.
If that wasn’t enough, when you make the switch to solar energy you are also eligible to receive tax incentives.
What happens if I move?
Not only can you save money, but you can make money by switching to solar energy. If you ever decide to move out of your home, you will have added value and appeal to your home. Installing solar panels is an upgrade to your home that will increase the value of the asking price.
Additionally, listing your home as a clean-energy producing home will be appealing to buyers who will be excited to have lower energy costs.
