Save Money: A Solar Photovoltaic or Solar Thermal System will save you money on your utility bills. There are still plenty of other solar incentives. You can receive generous returns on investment which are tax-free! If you are concerned about “getting your money back”, there a “break-even points” reached after only a few years after which your savings and grants have fully paid off the system.
After that point the only costs are operation and maintenance. Solar service and maintenance costs are far lower than any appliance available today! For example, the cost per kwhr to own a solar electric system can be as low as 3 cents per kwhr, less than 15% of what you are now paying without solar.
Even if a property owner will not keep his home or business long enough to achieve the break-even point, the property owner will gain value just as if an addition were added to the home. A new buyer will buy the system and pay interest rates on the loan below 4%. At that interest rate, each dollar of solar savings adds more than $25 to the property upon which it is installed!
Solar is an improvement to the home which is long lasting. We have many clients with systems older than 30 years!! Your solar system keeps money in your pocket and the local economy.
There are several federal and state tax incentives available for residential and business installations.
Save Energy: Energy prices for Oil, Gas, Coal and other fossil fuels which are used to produce Heat and Electricity are, despite fluctuations, only going to go up and up in price as time goes on. Using renewable energy from the Sun will help to reduce the energy consumption of our country.
Help The Environment: It is well documented that burning fossil fuels produces polluting gasses which are harmful to our health and the environment. Global warming is attributed to the Greenhouse Gas properties of these pollutants.
Be Patriotic: Our dependence on foreign oil is the root cause of the terrorism which is plaguing the world and our country. Our presence and influence in the Middle East is resented by the Arab Nations there. The money which they receive from our oil purchases is the same money which is being used to support terrorism. If we did not need the oil in the Middle East they would not have the money to support terrorism with. We would have no compelling reason to maintain a strong military presence there. The oil revenue which we send to them has financed the massive build up in enemy military and terrorist cells. Reducing oil money means reducing military and terror threat.
Energy Independence: If every American were to implement a Solar Energy System in their home or business the country would drastically reduce its dependence on foreign oil. Our utility bills would be less, we would use less fossil fuels, our environment would be cleaner and our foreign enemies would have much less money to attack us with.
Since our Federal Government has failed to take the lead in promoting the mass adoption of Alternative Energy sources of power, it is up to the American public to take the lead in promoting and implementing the use of Renewable Energy sources.
It is up to you. You have the power.
