Did you ever think of cutting your energy costs? Do you care about the environment? If the answer to both or either of these questions is a ‘yes,’ then you might need to consider going solar. Many homeowners are transitioning to solar in an ever-growing effort to save money and, simultaneously, save the environment; however, reasons for going solar do not end there.

As an everlasting renewable source of energy, solar brings clean energy that needs little to no maintenance. The list of benefits from going solar is numerous, but here are a few important ones to keep in mind:



#1 Cost Savings

Going solar means less energy reliance on utility suppliers. With the present fluctuating prices of electricity, solar provides a clean and rapid solution to energy production. This is applicable to any homeowner or business. The installation of solar panels can save you on utility costs at large. As such, you might be thinking, “What if I do not produce 100% of my energy consumption through solar?” The answer is quite simple: Solar production varies significantly based on several factors, however, it still remains that solar will save you a huge portion of your monthly utility bill by locking in your monthly rate. You can use our Solar Instant Calculator to calculate this estimation. So the actual question remains, “Why wouldn’t you go solar?”


#2 Environmental Protection

As our mission states, Sun Solar strives to create a sustainable planet through alternative energy solutions.  We all want to live in a healthy environment, don’t we? By producing your own energy with solar, you will play an important role in diminishing the greenhouse gas emissions that are detrimental to our planet. Moreover, going solar means less dependency on fossil fuels like coal or natural gas, which is yet another win for the environment.


#3 Tax Savings

The other good news is that going solar could mean more savings through your taxes. Purchasing and installing solar panels for your household can automatically qualify you for a 30% federal tax credit. This incentive has been set in place to help offset your solar investment. You can claim this tax savings all at once or by spreading it throughout the upcoming years. To read more about applicable tax savings, visit our web page here.


#4 Property Value Surge

Not only does solar allow you to lock in your utility rate and qualify for tax credits, the installation of solar panels also contributes to an increase in your household value. According to the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL), households that have solar panel installations are inclined to sell at a 20% quicker rate compared to those without panels. Similarly, households with solar panels sell for about 17% higher compared to their counterparts. In other words, installing a solar panel system at your household translates into an attractive investment opportunity with positive financial returns.


#5 Minimal Maintenance Costs
