Like many homeowners, you are probably looking at investing in a solar energy system. There are plenty of reasons to choose solar, including countless financial, environmental, and personal benefits. Despite this fact, some people have misconceptions about how these clean, safe, affordable systems work. So here are answers to four myths about solar power:
4 Myths about Solar Energy
The first myth: Solar is expensive – in reality; Solar provides homeowners with many financial benefits. You can start enjoying these advantages right away in the form of lower bills. Then, once you pay your system off, you’ll have access to 100% free electricity. Imagine what you could do with no power costs to worry about!
The second myth: There are no tax credits or rebates for solar – this is simply not true. Many states provide generous incentives for homeowners who invest in a solar energy system. Plus, Uncle Sam offers a 30% tax benefit. This program is scheduled to last through 2016 and may be extended.
The third myth: Solar panels are useless on cloudy days – to see why this is a myth, just look at Germany. This advanced nation has overcast skies most of the year. However, that has not stopped the Germans from installing solar energy systems at a breakneck pace. Their scientists and engineers know that the sun shines 365 days a year, even during cloudy weather. This makes any day a great time to harvest solar energy.
The fourth myth: Paying for these systems takes forever – in reality, many homeowners are able to pay off their residential system in as little as eight years. Then they will have at least 20 years to enjoy free energy year-round. That’s a smart way to go green. And, if you want to use solar power for your commercial property, you may be able to pay off your system in less than five years. We will be glad to give you all the details.
