Benefits of Residential Solar Energy
Solar Saves Money
With solar energy, homeowners can save enough to offset most of an electrical bill or even eliminate it, depending on the solar home system size. Each month, the average American household uses 920 kWh of energy.
Solar Panels Can Increase Property Value
Studies show adding a residential solar system increases a home’s resale price by $4.00 to $6.40 per watt, depending on your home’s location. In other words, a 4.2kW system can add $16,800 to your home’s value. Studies also show that homes with solar energy sell 15% faster than comparable residences without solar installations.
Types of Solar Installation
- Power from the Power Utility on Cloudy Days
- Sell Excess Energy For Utility Bill Credit
Owners of residential solar systems often utilize net metering with a grid tie system. With this system, homeowners earn credits for unused energy generated from the solar panels and then tie it back into the electrical grid. This occurs most often during the summer months, when there’s more sunlight available, particularly in the northern United States.
