As of March, 2019, more than 64.2 gigawatts (GW) of solar PV capacity has been installed in the US , which is enough to power over 12.3 million homes.
Since 2016 there has been double-digit growth of solar installations in the U.S. and that number is projected to skyrocket over the next few years due to the fading federal tax credits. (Source: Solar Energy Industry Association SEIA)
10 Reasons to Choose Solar Panels for Your Home
1. Save Money on Energy Bills
A solar energy system allows you to produce your own electricity, drastically reducing or nearly eliminating your utility power bill. Solar powered electricity also eliminates your dependency on your local utility company.
2. Zero-Down Solar = Simple Math Decision
Would your new solar + utility payment be immediately LESS than your current utility only payment?
That’s the simple question to find the answer to, which makes it easy to decide whether or not solar energy is right for your home.
The answer depends on a few things; where your home is, which way your roof(s) faces, how much shade hits the roof(s), how much electricity do you use, and ultimately your credit approval for solar financing, etc. For more information, see our article on “How many solar panels do I need?“
In the end, after a FREE solar analysis, the bottom line is usually, “Is my new combined solar payment LESS than my old electricity payments?”
Today’s solar financing plans let you own your own solar energy system without any money down (on approved credit), and the total monthly payment will be less than your current average electric bill.
To learn more about the different solar financing options, see our “Complete Guide to Solar Power Purchase Agreement, Lease, and Buying Solar.“
3. Savings Starts from Day One
Your solar payment can be locked in as a level payment, whereas your utility rates go up every year, which usually makes the projected savings add up to tens of thousands of dollars.
4. Freedom from Utility Company Prison
You are currently serving a life sentence with your utility company. You can’t shop other utility companies, you are stuck with the one you have, SDG&E, and have to pay them for life, no matter what their rates are, and matter how long you live.
With solar power, your solar financing payments will end in 5 to 20 years, depending on the terms you choose, and then all the electricity your solar panels produce is FREE. And systems are warrantied for 25 years with expected life-span are over 40 years.
No more life sentence with your utility company.
5. Get a Federal Income Tax Credit
Solar panel installation is made even more affordable through federal income tax credits.
In tax year 2021, twenty-six percent (26%) of your total system costs are reimbursed through federal investment tax credits (ITC). Speak with your tax advisor to see if you qualify.
Hurry, because tax credits are set to reduce to twenty-two percent (22%) for systems installed in 2023 and then to zero thereafter for homes (10% for businesses indefinitely).
6. Avoid Future Utility Rate Increases
Electrical costs rise every single year. Solar protects you against those rising electrical costs and hiked up rates. With solar energy, you are generating your own power at an upfront fixed price.
7. Benefit from a Secure Investment
Besides the financial incentives and low energy bills, a solar energy system’s return on investment (ROI) typically exceeds 10 percent.
8. Increase Your Property Value
Solar panel system may increase your property resale value. Beginning in 2020 all new homes built in California must have solar already installed.
The marketplace is changing due to the high costs of utility company electricity and the environmental damages of carbon fuels. Solar energy has become the preferred choice.
Depending upon market conditions, solar may help you get more for your home.
9. It’s Good for the Environment
Every solar panel installed equals less carbon-based fuels burnt and less damaging pollution mixed in our air.
In addition to providing you financial savings, your solar panels will also help contribute to environmental health of our city, country, and planet.
10. Maintenance Is Easy
Well made, high-efficiency solar panels don’t require much maintenance after installation.
Washing your solar panels at least once a year or more is all that’s required.
Most systems provide solar power monitoring to ensure that your system is operating at peak efficiency 24/7.

How Do Solar Panels Work?
A solar system is a electrical power plant located on your property for your household electricity use.
The solar panels convert sunlight into electricity which gets converted into household A/C electric power by the use of an Inverter.
our solar system is connected to the electric utility grid at your electric meter.
During the day, rain or shine, your solar power system generates useable electricity that your home can directly use.
Any solar power not used during that time is sent into the utility grid for others to use and rolls back your electric meter for credits you earn and can use at night and at other times whenever you use more energy than the solar panels produce.
Solar energy is the most reliable form of renewable energy for homes and businesses.
With the vast improvement of technology, solar energy has become more readily available for customers who are looking to make the switch to solar panels.
Zero-down financing makes it easier than ever to own your own solar power and save hundreds of dollars each year, and tens of thousands of dollars of the life of the system.
