Pros and Cons of Solar Energy
Solar is a renewable and clean source of energy that protects the environment by reducing carbon dioxide emissions.
It helps the U.S. eliminate the need for fossil fuels, therefore making us a more independent and self-sustainable country.
By using renewable energy, you can see a significant reduction in your electric bill, or even eliminate it altogether.
There are are number of incentives for using solar energy that allow you to earn bill credits or cash for the electricity that your panels create, making it a great long-term return on your investment.
Recent studies show that property values actually increase when a home has solar panels installed.
Installing a solar panel system can be a sizable investment.
If you already have a pretty cheap electric bill, you may not have much of a financial incentive for transitioning to solar energy.
If you are planning to move in less that ten years, you may not see as much of a return on your investment as far as electric bill savings go.
Depending on the type of roofing or rooftop additions your home has, you may not be able to install solar panels.
