Ron-Edwards-2_goodyear-2As solar industry stewards, it’s pretty obvious to us why you, as a homeowner, should invest in your own solar electricity plant. At the very least, when you partner with solar companies that research, develop, and install this technology, you’re not only locking decades of financial relief, but you're investing in tomorrow's technology and ensuring a cleaner energy future for us all.

Solar also provides many other benefits than a sustainable future for generations to come. With solar, you can save on your monthly electricity bills, reduce your carbon footprint, and add value to your home. So while there many advantages to going solarfar more than we could could possibly explore in the brief context of this blogwe'd like to take a few minutes to share with you a few of our favorites.


1. Your Utility Bills are High

One of the many advantages of going solar is the potential for significant savings on your utility bills. In states like Arizona, where there is an abundance of usable energy from the sun, the cost of producing your own solar energy is much lower compared to fossil fuels. By installing a solar energy system for your home, you can reduce your reliance on traditional utility power and lower your monthly bills. Investing in your own solar energy system in Arizona may also qualify you for lucrative tax incentives, like the 30% federal solar tax credit and the $1,000 state of Arizona tax credit, both of which increase your solar savings.


2. You Want Security in Times of Crisis

Pairing a residential solar energy system with energy storage allows you to gain security in times of crisis. By storing your unused solar power throughout the day in a battery, you can use that energy once the sun goes down or during blackouts. As our national grid continues to age, grid failures will only become more common. Installing solar and batteries will ensure you have access to critical loads backup or whole home backup.

3. You Own Your Property

Studies have shown that solar panels and solar energy can increase the resale value of your property, making it a wise investment for the future. A recent study by Zillow showed that homes with solar sold for 4.1% more than comparable homes without solar. For the median-valued home, that equates to an additional $9,274. This is due to the fact that homes with solar provide significant energy savings, and an increasing amount of consumers are becoming more eco-conscious, which can extend into their home purchasing decisions too. 


4. You Care About the Environment

If you care about the environment, solar energy is a responsible choice. The extraction processes of fossil fuels, such as mining, fracking, and drilling, cause severe damage to the environment and human health. The byproducts of burning natural gas, oil, and coal also contribute to environmental pollution. On the other hand, solar power does not produce harmful byproducts once it is installed, and many of the materials used in solar technologies are recyclable, making it a sustainable and eco-friendly energy solution.


5. You Are Looking to Invest in the Future

Investing in solar energy is also a wise decision for the future. While the sun is a renewable and virtually limitless source of energy, fossil fuels are finite and will eventually run out. By choosing to invest in solar energy technologies and research, you are making a wise long-term decision compared to investing in the fossil fuel industry. By installing a solar energy system for your home, you can make an immediate positive impact on the environment and your energy consumption.
