Solar-powered homes are the future of renewable energy. The benefits of a solar-powered home, from solar-paneled rooftops to ground-mounted installations to smart homes, provide a multitude of perks that can save both your wallet and the planet.
What are the Benefits of Switching My Home to Solar?
For some folks, the process of switching to solar may seem daunting, but the reward of making the leap reaps benefits you won’t get by staying on the grid. So, let our team at Cedar Creek Energy help.
Having a solar system for your home means you’re covered in the case of a blackout. Solar-powered homes offer independence and reliability you won’t find on the grid. Even in the worst case scenario, innovative solar technologies provide battery backups that store excess energy for emergencies, to keep your home running and the lights on when you need it most.
The energy savings you’ll receive from your solar system are subjective to your energy needs, the size of your system, your location and whether or not you choose to sell your excess energy to your local provider. Regardless, solar installations have a quick return on investment of around 4 to 7 years depending on these factors. At Cedar Creek Energy, we offer a 25-year warranty to cover your system, so you know you’re making an investment that will pay off. Take a look at the case studies of past Cedar Creek Energy clients—the Wheeler family—chose to switch to solar and have reduced their electricity bill by 87% per year, and made a profit ranging from $30-$150 per month in credits from the energy they sold back to the grid. Solar is a fantastic investment that starts paying for itself on day 1 of installation.
Decrease Your Carbon Footprint
For folks considering a switch, one of the most significant benefits of a solar-powered home is the ability to positively impact the planet. Using solar power provides a step toward integrating renewable energy solutions into your daily life, reducing your dependence on utilities and fossil fuels and supporting sustainable practices for our planet. Consider, again, the Wheeler family. By switching to solar they have saved 25,062 lbs of CO2 emissions per year. That’s 295 trees grown in ten years! Solar energy doesn’t rely on fossil fuels or provide air pollution, which are major contributions to climate change and the degradation of our planet. By choosing a smart home, you’ll be choosing a safer environment for our planet.
Increase Your Property Value
Along with all the other savings and profit you’ll receive by going solar, you can also expect the property value of your home to increase. A common misconception about solar-powered homes is that you’ll be expected to pay more in taxes. Thankfully, solar installations will likely increase your property value but won’t end up costing you more in taxes. It’s a win-win.
Bonuses of Solar with Cedar Creek Energy!
There are many bonuses that come with having a solar-powered home. For instance, you could switch all the lightbulbs in your house to LED lighting for further savings. You also have the ability to install an electric vehicle charging station so you can charge your car in the luxury of your own garage while having zero harmful emissions due to not using gasoline like other cars. Simply plug your car in and save!
Overall, the benefits of solar energy provide substantial savings, independence from the grid and the ability to make a positive impact on our planet. Let us help you make the switch—contact us today for your free solar bid.
