Why Solar

Youíve heard the saying, "If itís not one thing, itís another." With solar energy, itís all things coming together to create a very strong pull to make the sun part of your energy equation. Between the financial, environmental, and even public relations benefits, more and more building owners and homeowners are making the move. Of course, you can find website after website filled with the praises of going solar, and we invite you to surf. But here are our Top 10 Reasons:

Reason #1: Energy Cost Stabilization

It doesnít take a Nobel Prize winning economist to predict that energy costs for building owners and homeowners are going to keep rising. When you add solar to your mix, youíre able to control your own energy costs and provide some predictability for future financial planning. Can you say lower electric bills?

Reason #2: Financial Incentives are Available

The news keeps getting better. A 30% Federal income tax credit coupled with generous state grants and loan incentives makes this a great time to consider solar. Check here for state by state incentives:

Reason #3: Adding Value to Your Home or Building

Sooner or later you may want to sell what you own. If your home or office building is solar equipped youíll probably be able to sell faster and at a higher price. One study by ICF Consulting explains that saving $1 a year on energy costs adds $20 to your homeís value. So if you saved $1,000, youíd increase your home value by $20,000. And the U.S. Department of Energyís Office of Energy Efficiency & Renewable Energy says that a home with solar will sell twice as fast as a home without solar. See this infographic for more information on the true power of solar..

Reason #4: Reduce Your Carbon Footprint

While youíre saving money, youíre doing a good thing for the environment.

Reason #5: A Cleaner Environment

Your kids and their kids and their kids will appreciate what youíve done.

Reason #6: Youíll Look Good

Okay, we know this isnít why youíll go solar, but itís certainly a good bi-product. Investing in solar will enhance your image as an environmentally conscious building owner. Itís a marketing tool that can pay nice dividends for you with new and existing clients.

Reason #7: Itís Not Very Difficult

Let us do a free evaluation. If your building or home is a strong candidate for solar we can do everything. And as youíll read (if you havenít already skipped to that section), the process of turning the sun into energy isnít really all that complicated.

Reason #8: Your Personal Energy Independence

Wouldnít it be nice to receive a far smaller utility bill? Or no bill at all? You have better things to do with your hard earned money than give it to the power company.

Reason #9: National Security

Sure, why not? The less dependence we have on foreign energy sources, the better for the good old USA.

Reason #10: Youíll Sleep Better

Weíre not saying this can be proven scientifically. But saving on electricity, helping the environment, improving your corporate image and saving the world for future generations? That has to help you sleep better! Good job.
