Benefits of Solar Energy

The following are a few benefits that you can enjoy by switching to solar energy:

  • Investing in solar energy or Photovoltaic (PV) technology makes good sense, whether you are a residential or business customer, school, or municipality.
  • PV can help lower your monthly bills, reduce your energy consumption, and it’s good for the environment.
  • PV preserves the earth’s finite fossil-fuel resources (coal, oil, natural gas) and reduces air and noise pollution associated with those energy sources.
  • Recent technological breakthroughs have drastically reduced the cost of PV ownership and a typical PV system may last 40 years with minimal maintenance.
  • Valuable rebates combined with state and federal tax incentives make PV more affordable than ever before.
  • A highly energy-efficient home or business means you can install less PV.
