The Benefits of Home Solar Panels
Save money on your electric bill
One of the best reasons to go solar is to save money on your energy bill. Solar panels produce renewable energy that you can use to power your home, and this free energy can help offset the cost of your traditional energy bill. In some cases, customers are able to eliminate their energy bill completely!
Increase the value of your home
Solar panels can actually increase the value of your property. According to the Appraisal Institute, each kilowatt of solar capacity could add about $6,000 in value to a home. While this number varies from state to state, these numbers suggest that homes with solar panels will sell for more than those without.
Get tax breaks and other incentives
Incentives like federal tax credits, property tax exemptions and more are available for customers who go solar. These rebates can help offset the cost of installation, making solar even more affordable.
Preserve the environment for future generations
Solar panels produce clean, renewable energy that doesn’t pollute the air or water. This is good news for the environment and helps preserve our planet for future generations.
Solar panels are low maintenance
After installation, there’s not much you need to do to maintain your solar panels. They will continue to produce energy for years with minimal intervention from you.
Solar panels are compatible with electric car charging
If you have an electric vehicle, you can use solar panels to charge your car. This is a great way to save even more money on your transportation costs.
Solar provides backup power during outages
If you add solar battery storage to your system, you’ll have backup power in the event of a power outage. Have peace of mind knowing that you won’t be left in the dark if there’s an interruption in service from your utility company.
- How do residential solar panels work?
Solar panels work by converting sunlight into electrical energy for your home. The photovoltaic cells in the panel absorb the sunlight and create an electrical current. This current is then used to power your home.
- How long do residential solar panels last?
Solar panels are designed to last for many years, typically 25 years or more. If your panels appear to be underperforming, consider cleaning any accumulated dirt, leaves, bird droppings or snow to keep them running at their best.
- How much electricity do residential solar panels produce?
The amount of electricity that your solar panels produce will depend on the size of your system, the angle and orientation of your roof, and the amount of sunlight that your location receives. In general, a 6-kilowatt system will produce around 400 to 900 kWh (kilowatt-hours) of electricity each month, or between 4,800 and 10,800 kWh per year.
- What are the different types of residential solar panels?
There are two main types of solar panels: monocrystalline and polycrystalline. Monocrystalline panels are made from a single crystal of silicon, while polycrystalline panels are made from multiple crystals of silicon. Monocrystalline panels are more efficient, but also more expensive.
