The cost of traditional power from fossil fuels has skyrocketed, driving up your utility bills. But as long as the sun is shining, solar energy can help reduce those costs, and save you money for years to come.
As a renewable resource, sunlight is unlimited, and it is available in every area of the world. Unlike coal, natural gas and nuclear power plants, solar energy is a clean and sustainable source of electricity. And the technology continues to improve, making it a smarter choice for consumers.
There are several things to consider when deciding if solar is right for you, including current energy rates and incentives in your area. Also, take into account your home’s solar exposure and how much energy you consume. You may be able to offset 100% of your energy consumption with a residential solar system, but that will depend on the size and location of the system, your roof and financial considerations.
Many solar companies offer solar leases that allow you to avoid upfront costs. However, the cost of a solar lease can increase over time and you may not be eligible for certain tax credits. Star Plus Energy systems should be inspected regularly and maintained to ensure optimal performance. This will not only extend the lifespan of your panels, but it will also help you qualify for warranty coverage or recoup your investment should you decide to sell your home.
