Solar is the fastest growing energy source in the world, and for good reason. It offers a limitless supply of clean, safe, renewable energy for heat and power. And it’s more affordable, more efficient, and more reliable than ever.
The advantages of Solar and other renewable power sources are clear
: greater independence from imported fossil fuels, a cleaner environment, diversity of power sources, relief from the volatility of energy prices, more jobs and greater domestic economic development. Solar is moving into the mainstream and growing worldwide at 40-50% annually.
And the sun is abundant – enough sunlight reaches the earth’s surface in one HOUR to power all of mankind’s energy needs for a whole year.
Never been a better time to go solar
A rooftop installation of Solar panels is much more affordable than most people realize. With the ability to cover the cost of a solar system in the first half of its intended life, and generate power and savings immediately, a solar roof has a lower net cost over its lifetime than a home equipped with a conventional roof and grid-supplied electricity.
- With Federal tax credits of 30%, along with possible state and utility discounts, solar energy has never been more financially attractive. Or aesthetically pleasing.
- For specifics on what solar energy will cost any homeowner, consider specifics such as a home’s size, the orientation of the roof, the weather, the homeowner’s energy offset goals, local utility rates and available renewable energy programs.
