Did you know the sun generates thousands of times more energy than is necessary for the consumption of both humans and nature every year?
Solar is easy on the wallet and Earth. The sun provides energy for free, and solar panels generate zero carbon dioxide emissions.

The U.S. solar market grew 76% in 2012. Never before has solar power been this available to American households. What are the reasons why so many homeowners choose to go solar these days?
Save Thousands of Dollars
Adding solar panels to your home can bring in monthly savings of well above $100 in many states or even eliminate your power bill. Extend this to two decades, less than the length of a typical solar panel warranty, and this translates to over $30,000.
Are you wondering how much you can save by going solar? Click here to find out.
Low Payback Period
The payback period is in many cases less than ten years.
Increase Your Home Value
Buying a home with solar panels translates into lower electricity costs. Solar panels will increase a home`s attractiveness on the market, similarly to homes with low property taxes, homes in school districts and homes with good Home Energy Ratings (a measurement of a energy efficiency).
A study conducted by National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) concluded that homes with solar panels sell 20% faster and for 17% more money.
U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory found that the sales price of the average home increased $17,000 with solar panels.
Take Advantage of Incentives
You will get 30% of total system costs back (equipment and installation). This means you would save $7,500 on a solar system worth $25,000. Combine this with state and local rebates, Solar Renewable Energy Credits (SRECs), and total costs can be cut in half. Take advantage of incentives while they last.
Solar is a Secure Investment
The utility companies’ rates are clearly an upward trend.
With solar panels and simple math, we can calculate how much electricity will be generated, and most importantly, at what price, for at least the next 20 years (fixed energy costs).
Solar panel manufacturers include a 20- to 25-year warranty (also known as a performance guarantee) with their solar panels. The industry standard guarantees 80% performance after 25 years.
The real lifespan of solar panels is much longer – your solar panels will likely generate a good amount of electricity 30-40 years down the line.
Save the Environment
We know that the majority of homeowners choose to go solar because it makes good sense from a financial point of view. That being said, the environmental benefits are also clearly worth mentioning.
The U.S. places second in the world in annual carbon dioxide emissions at 17.9%, right behind China. You can go a long way in lowering your carbon footprint by replacing utility power with clean electricity from solar panels.
The U.S. relied on net imports for about 40% of the petroleum (crude oil and petroleum products) that we consumed in 2012.
You can help to reduce U.S. dependence on foreign energy. We will inevitably run out of oil, coal and natural gas. While we continue our consumption of these increasingly expensive and dangerous energy source, our national security and economy suffers.
Solar is one step in the right direction.
Solar is Easy
Shopping for solar used to be a long and complicated process. There are hundreds of solar companies in the U.S. alone. It would take you weeks to find the best solar deal. Luckily things have changed.
To go solar has never before been easier. Our team of independent solar consultants will help you sort through your options. To see how much you can save, and for all other solar questions, request a free consultation. There’s no obligation.
Photovoltaic (Solar Electric)
We can change sunlight directly to electricity using solar cells. Every day, light hits your roof’s solar panels with photons (particles of sunlight). The solar panel converts those photons into electrons of direct current (“DC”) electricity. The electrons flow out of the solar panel and into an inverter and other electrical safety devices. The inverter converts that “DC” power (commonly used in batteries) into alternating current or “AC” power. AC power is the kind of electricity that your television, computer, and toasters use when plugged into the wall outlet. Watch Video Here: energy.gov

Solar Water Heating Technology
Solar water heating systems can be installed on most homes, and are comprised of three main elements: the solar collector, insulated piping, and a hot water storage tank. Electronic controls can also be included, as well as a freeze protection system for colder climates. The solar collector gathers the heat from solar radiation and transfers the heat to potable water. This heated water flows out of the collector to a hot water tank, and is used as necessary. Auxiliary heating can remain connected to the hot water tank for back‐up if necessary.
