Why Should You Install Solar?
An investment in solar panels on your home or business can support more than just reducing your utility costs. The money you save each month, or year, can be used to build back up savings, make more improvements and even protect your home or business from a power outage.
The decision to go solar is not an easy one to make. The biggest drawback most people have is the cost of solar panels. The cost of solar panels has continued to decline every year with a major drop off happening around 2009. This cost is so low that most homeowner's will see a return-on-investment with solar within 5-7 years.
Since 1991, the price of a solar panel has gone from $10 per watt to less than $1 per watt to make them and those savings are passed onto the customer with reduced installation costs.
