Picture yourself on a sunny summer day. The sun is out and it’s hot. You’re going through your day as usual when you realize your home has just generated some extra dollars for you. You didn’t have to do anything to earn them — it was just your day to receive the extra income. Does it sound too good to be true? It’s not with solar roofs for homes.
Electricity prices are rising every year
Do you know what your biggest monthly expense is? If you’re like most people, your electric bill takes up a big chunk of your budget. Electricity prices are rising every year, and will only continue to go up. That’s why homeowners are increasingly turning to solar power in an effort to save money and the environment.
Solar energy is getting cheaper every year
Solar energy is getting cheaper every year. The cost of a solar panel has dropped 75 percent in the last 10 years, and continues to fall. Solar is now cheaper than coal in some parts of the world.
The technology has become more efficient, and solar developers are getting better at building and installing panels. Additionally, government incentives, such as the federal investment tax credit, have helped make solar more affordable.
A solar roof will help you reduce your utility bill
Utility bills are based on how much energy you use. Adding solar to your home can help you reduce the amount of energy you purchase from your utility company, which reduces your monthly electricity bill. Because each solar panel produces a specific amount of energy and we can easily predict how much energy any given system will produce, we can also easily tell exactly how much a homeowner will save on their electric bills each month by installing solar panels for their home.
Solar also saves you money in other ways. Solar panels increase your property value, and many states offer tax breaks to homeowners who install solar panels.
A solar roof lasts longer than a traditional roof
Solar roofs are made of durable glass that can withstand almost anything Mother Nature throws at them—and it’s not only hail, heavy rain, and severe winds that solar roofs can endure. They’re also designed for maximum resistance to moisture and heat, so you can enjoy them for many years without worrying about the risk of leaks or decay.
The solar roof can power your car as well
A solar roof can power up to 90% of your home’s electricity, depending on the size and type of your house. It can also charge your electric car for free!
Installing a solar roof is good for the environment. It reduces your carbon footprint by taking advantage of the sun’s energy. This means less pollution in our air!
You get more money per month by going solar than by getting a new job
Now, how would you like to make more money every month by going solar than by getting a new job?
We’re not kidding. The average U.S. household spends $1,400 per year on electricity bills, and the amount is growing at 3% per year. So a typical consumer looking for financial security could net more than $2,250 per year by switching to solar — and that’s before any incentives from the government. That’s enough to pay for a vacation, retirement fund or saving for a kid’s college education.
