Preservation of the environment
Many individuals are conscious of their ability to contribute to the preservation of the environment by opting for green energy. This is further driven by the global awareness that non-renewable energy resource are dwindling. Fossil fuel supplies are not sustainable and their availability is very much in the balance. With these traditional energy sources becoming more and more expensive, switching to renewable energy is the obvious answer.

More Maryland homes are making utility savings
Investing in a solar power system will help households shave a considerable chunk off their monthly electricity bill. A well designed system will generate sufficient to cover all your energy needs. In fact, there will often be a surplus. Your grid supplier will “buy” any extra energy back from you using the Net Metering system. This remains as a credit balance in your account for later use
In some locations, it takes a mere 60 months or five years for homeowners to make up what they initially shelled out for an up-front payment. Your mileage may vary, of course, but that’s still a great time frame to recoup your expenses, especially when you consider that the lifespan of a solar panel is expected to be 25-30 years.
Homeowners can additionally save on the cost of installing solar through government incentives or tax breaks. There are also separate state incentives or exemptions, depending on the location. These are some of the ways through which the government encourages adoption of solar and other renewable sources of energy.

This is thanks to advancements in manufacturing and materials research. Financial investment by stakeholders and investors plays a large role here too. In addition there is a greater demand from large-scale applications.
