It’s Getting Hotter, Now is the Time to Install Solar Panels
As the weather is warming up, have you put together a list of home improvement projects for the summer? For most households, summer means that the air conditioner is turned on, the kids are home from school, and energy usage is going up. If you want to avoid high utility bills for the rest of the year and years to come, then this season is a great time to have a solar system installed!
Increasing Utility Rates in CA
Check your utility bills, and it might be surprising to see how much your costs have gone up over the years. Here in California, the prices of electricity have gone up about 6% per year. As a result, your monthly expenses are higher, even if you are trying to conserve energy. Sometimes, the high demand for energy results in blackout periods in certain parts of the state. If you live in a fire zone, the utility may just turn off your electricity during high winds, to avoid their utility lines sparking fires. If this is the case in your area, you may consider including battery back up with your solar electric system, in order to have peace of mind if the grid is down.
ROI of Solar Installation
Is it worth the cost to install a solar system this summer? Look at the numbers, and you can see that solar power quickly pays for itself over time. If you compare the cost of the system with the amount that you will be saving each month on utilities, you’ll see that solar makes sense.
The actual break-even point varies depending on how you pay for solar panels and how much energy you use each month. Most homeowners find that their monthly payment for a solar system is less than what they were paying for utilities. The solar loans through a credit union are 0 down and 12 years. There is no prepayment penalty and the solar equipment is warrantied by the manufacturer for 25 years. Once your solar loan is paid for in 12 years or less, you will have free electricity from year 12 to at least year 25. You will own your solar system and and you will be off the life time payment plan with your utility company!
