1. Make Your Own Power
The average home in the United states uses 725 kWhs of energy each month. The average cost of that power is currently $0.11 per kWh. That’s $28,971 that you will pay over the next 30 years IF the electric company doesn’t raise your rates. Solar Power users pay less money up front and own their power.
2. Solar Power is Cheaper than Grid Power
Grid power is expected to increase a minimum of 3% per year. That means in 25 years your electric rate will be $0.21 per kWh. The cost of solar energy spread over 25 years is $0.10 per kWh WITHOUT any federal or state incentives.
3. Become Your Own Utility
Utility companies are constant pressure to make more money. The problem is they can’t add new services, they can only make and send you energy. What happens next is something you’re already familiar with; your rates go up and your electric bill goes up. Installing solar power is the only way a homeowner can lock-in their electric rate for the next 30 years.
4. Be Energy Independent
Most electricity in the United States is produced by coal. Many hard working Americans work in dark dangerous places to produce that coal. But that coal must be transported thousands of miles to coal plants, and it takes a lot of foreign oil to do that. As the cost of the foreign oil goes up, the cost of coal power goes up. Solar Power is the only energy source made by Americans that isn’t affected by events in other countries.
Solar power has no moving parts when installed on a roof our ground mount. The warrant for power from the panels is 25 years. The inverter warranty is 15 years, but is expected to last longer.
6. Earn Income
In some states, solar power makers can sell credit for their system to a utility to claim as part of their solar portfolio. This is cash income that is completely seperate from the energy savings.
7. Solar Employs Americans
The US solar industry employs 93,000 people directly and another 9 million people indirectl. This recently surpassed the coal industry which employs 90,000 people directly and 1 Million in-directly.
8. Support Small, Local Businesses
The mean size of US solar company is $20M in revenue and 30 employees. Compare this with coal and oil companies which are generally much larger but employ far fewer americans per dollar of revenue.
9. Solar Cannot Be Controlled by Government Agencies or Large Corporations
Once you have installed a solar electric system, the cost of energy from that system cannot be increased by government taxes, or corporate surcharges. You have protected your energy future from outside interference.
10. Solar is Clean
Most Americans don’t like waste. We like efficiency, and we like getting things done–making things. We would prefer a clean, efficient, and effective source of power over something that is wasteful, dirty and inefficient. Solar power produces energy every day without making any noise, without any smell, and without wasting power in transmission. It’s the ultimate American form of power.
