Solar is a proven technology
Generating electricity from solar energy is a proven technology. Solar energy has been in use for decades (or millions of years if you consider photosynthesis), from powering small devices such as calculators to larger devices such as satellites, space probes, space stations, and the Mars Rover. For residential purposes, the end-to-end process from solar cell manufacturing, to solar panel integration, to installation, and to seeing actual bill reductions is also proven. The components that comprise a solar system have no moving parts, require no regular maintenance, and are highly durable and reliable, with 10 – 25 year manufacturers’ warranties that are standard in the industry.
SOLAR PROVIDES REAL BENEFITS
Just as the technology is proven, so are the savings that Solar generates. Solar is an investment that will generate electricity and provides tangible savings from the day of operation, resulting in a hedge against future electric rate increases, a relatively short payback period and an above average return on your investment.
SOLAR is affordable
Going Solar should not be discounted based on the belief that solar is not affordable. Although the upfront, outright purchase cost of a solar system may seem relatively high, there are many options and incentives that make the net cost much lower; hence, making solar affordable and enabling most people to enjoy the benefits of solar – financing, leasing, rebates, tax credits, and rising energy costs. Some options provide more savings than others, but any of these options still provide a long-term net financial benefit versus not going Solar.
