Start Enjoying Solar Savings

How much can you save with a solar power system? 

solar savings

After the initial cost of the system, any solar power generated will result in immediate solar savings.

Over the past few years, the solar energy industry has seen rapid changes. The rate of production of solar thermal, or solar hot water, and solar PV panels has rapidly increased, while the prices of the materials and final products have decreased. This is great news for both the retailer and the consumer, which explains the high growth rate in the use of solar panels.

Currently, solar production in the U.S. has created more than 100,000 jobs, which is twice the number of employees than the industry employed in 2009.  Also, in 2011, there was a 109 percent solar energy production growth rate which included the installation of 1.85 billion watts of additional solar power. These large scale production increases serve as additional indicators of the success of the industry and the continued expansion solar production will see in the future. The industry shows no signs of slowing down, and with the always increasing price of “dirty” energy, solar power captivates more new customers daily. The predicted levels of production in 2012 far surpass those that were realized last year, and with the installation price per watt of Solar PV costing about half of what it did only a short time ago, 2012 will be a big year for solar power. 

energy price parity

Now that solar is in a price parity with other sources of energy, it only makes sense to start earning solar savings today!

But most customers wonder more about the current price of the solar technology rather than how much of a change the industry has seen recently. And we have good news to report here as well. The solar energy industry has reached a point of price parody with other “dirty” fuels. This means that the cost of creating your own power from solar is the same or less than the cost of purchasing oil, coal, and gas from the big power companies.

With the installation of a solar power system, the initial cost will be quickly turn into solar savings as your electric or hot water bill will instantly become a minimal or no monthly charge. The initial cost of the purchase of the materials and installation can even be amortized over a few years with a loan so that the cost of the system results in a lower monthly payment than before. This way, you will see savings immediately, and after the loan is paid in full, you will now have no payment at all for electric or heating for the remaining life of the system, which is about 25 years in total! While your neighbors are sweating at the thought of their heating and electric bills each month, you can remain stress free no matter what happens with the energy crisis. Solar power is a sound investment, and  one that you will be able to glean the benefits from for years to come.
