THE BENEFITS OF SOLAR ENERGY
Our energy grids are getting older at the same time that our electricity usage is increasing. The results are more power outages, higher rates and bigger bills. The solution? Solar energy!
The benefits of switching to solar energy include:
Environmentally Friendly. Reduce your carbon footprint with safe, reliable and renewable solar power. Producing and storing energy from the sun reduces your dependence on dangerous and harmful fossil fuels that contribute to climate change and pollution.
It has been predicted that we will run out of fossil fuels (oil, natural gas and coal) during this century. Solar power not only reduces the use of non-renewables, but it is clean energy. Solar is cleaner than natural gas or coal, and a solar panel can be recycled when it reaches the end of its useful life.
Generate Your Own Energy. Local energy-producing grids are becoming less reliable over time, which leads to occasional outages. Solar power provides a more stable solution to keeping the lights on. By creating your own source of energy with a solar battery backup system, you can keep your home running even during a blackout.
Money Savings. When you generate your own energy, you no longer have to pay those high electricity bills. Even if you need to supplement your electricity from the local utility, you will be purchasing a lot less and seeing much lower bills.
Plus, many local energy service providers offer net energy metering (NEM) programs. This means that if your solar system produces excess electricity at some point, you can send it to the grid and earn credits toward your future electric bills.
The federal tax credit and state and local incentives also save you money. We will help you explore your options so you can benefit as much as your personal tax situation allows.
Predictable Payments. Unlike electric bills that fluctuate with the seasons and your usage, your solar energy system installation is paid for with predictable, fixed payments. You know exactly how much you will pay each month, so you no longer have to worry about having to pay a bill for a higher-than-anticipated amount.
Increased Home Value. Solar panels can increase the value of your property when it’s time to sell. Prospective buyers will likely be willing to pay more for a house that has no or very low electric bills.
Saving the planet
While saving money is a pretty good reason for going solar, we want to remind you of the positive effects that a Sunburst Solar system has on the earth. We have helped thousands of homeowners like you save the planet by using clean, renewable solar energy. We estimate that our customers’ contributions over the next 20 years will have impacts equivalent to:
PLANTING 498,000 TREES
consuming 395,400 Gal. Of gas
Reducing 8,421,560 Miles of driving
