Have you ever thought of equipping your home with solar power, but thought it was too expensive?
Yes, whole house solar power systems can be an expensive layout up front, but in a handful of years it could wind up being the cheapest energy source you could ever purchase.
Imagine selling power BACK to the local power company, instead of paying for it. In reality, you’d be your OWN power company. For a change, the power company would be PAYING YOU.
Over the long run, solar power home systems may be much cheaper than most might consider. Consider that most if not all of the system is of solid-state origin (very few moving parts to break down), with a minimum of maintenance care, a well installed system could offer decades of dependable free solar power.
Realizing that after installation you’d start getting your power for free while earning a side income, selling the excess electricity back to your local power company.
It would seem with both those factors working together, the whole house solar power system cost could be reduced down to nothing and it could conceivably be paid off in a relatively short period of time.
Also, most people have not truly considered the possibility of the power grid going down for some unknown reason. What could you do to provide power for yourself and your family while this calamity goes on? With enough solar wattage you could power, cool, AND heat your home..even in the worst of circumstances.
No one wants their family to suffer without the comforts of electric power. How about the need for maintaining a safe food supply for the fridge because there’s power to keep it running? An electric stove would become a luxury in an extended power outage situation.
Having a viable solar power system attached to a home would no doubt increase the resale value of that home, and adding to the fact that excess power can be sold back to the local power establishment would indeed make it an attractive offer.
Another factor to consider is as the economy continues to worsen, solar systems WILL go UP in price, not down, making the value of your home even greater.
As time goes on and technology improves, and as prices for products and installations drop, it will become clear that solar power is rapidly becoming the energy source of choice in our changing world.
