One of the most touted benefits of having a solar power system is to save money. You’ll generate ample electricity for your home and at the same time shave a sizable chunk off your utility costs. What about the initial cost you have to fork over to the solar company for the equipment and installation? Is it all worth it in the end? Let’s find out.
You save money, because it gets cheaper over time
There are numerous factors that affect the pricing of solar power systems. One factor is that there are now more options than ever, and competition always helps drive down costs. In addition, there’s now more knowledge about production as well as the materials used to make solar panel equipment.
Over the lifespan of your solar panel equipment, you will get back much more than you spent for your setup. Once you break even, you’ll save money and be enjoying practically free energy. All of it compliments of none other than our very own sun!
Slash your electricity bills and save money
When it comes to household solar applications, many people attest that installing a solar power system helps save money. Figures show that power bills usually drop to around half, sometimes even more. Some people, crunching the numbers, say they will get their investment back by year 5. So, for a system with a 10-year warranty, for example, that’s just simply a great deal!
Not to mention that electricity rates always seem to be going up. At least once a year, most households experience a bump in electricity company charges. If you want to avoid that, the best way to work around this system is to make sure you’re paying less.
Take advantage of energy storage solutions for better efficiency and more savings
It’s definitely worth adding a decent battery. While this means paying more up front, you’ll have protection when it comes to power outages. Not only will you have the added flexibility, but you’ll have power when your neighbors are in darkness. That’s because you can store your excess power production for the times when you need it most. That means you won’t fall short of your household’s requirements during the peak times of the day where your energy requirements spike for a few hours.
Having a good storage capacity will also allow you to maximize your solar power system during periods of lower sunlight availability, such as in winter or during rainy stretches of the year. Again, power storage will need you to pay a bit more up front, but the advantages surely outweigh the cost.
