Get Smart – Go Solar
Reduce your electric bill
Electricity costs make up a large portion of your monthly expenses. With a solar panel system, you’ll generate free power for your home to help reduce those expenses. Even if you do not produce 100% of the energy you consume, it will reduce your utility bills significantly.
Protect against rising energy costs
The biggest benefit of a PV system is the ability to protect yourself from rising utility rates. In the past decade, electricity rates have gone up by an average of 3% annually. Fix your electricity rate and protect against unpredictable increases in electricity costs with energy from the sun.
Increase your property value
Homes equipped with solar energy systems may enjoy higher property values* and could sell more quickly than non-solar homes. Appraisers are now taking these homes into consideration as they value homes and buyers are well-informed about the benefits and evaluating the overall cost of operating a home. According to the Appraisal Institute, for every $1 reduction in annual electric bills after installing a solar system, your home’s value will increase by about $20.
*The actual benefits can vary from home to home, and an evaluation from EcoSmart is the best way to maximize the impact of a solar system on your home.
Protect the environment
If your home operating costs are not a concern, then simply consider the opportunity to protect the environment for future generations. Solar is a great way to reduce your carbon footprint. A typical residential system will eliminate 3-4 tons of carbon emissions each year. Contact EcoSmart and see how you can save money while protecting our planet.
