The Benefits of Installing Solar Panels
In addition to being a green technology, solar or photovoltaic panels decrease your home’s dependency on the main energy grid, and in turn your power bill. In fact, panels can produce more energy than your house needs. Excess electricity is then sent back into the power grid, literally turning your electric meter backwards and decreasing your bill.
Other advantages of solar power include:
- Lower electric bills
- Make a profit — sell your excess electricity to the utility company!
- Reduce your carbon footprint
- Increase your home’s resale value
- Take advantage of tax credits from the federal and state government
