Out with the old, in with the new! You have probably already heard the news about some of the local power plants shutting down, or about a new solar field going up nearby; maybe you’ve even seen a few more windmills popping up outside of town. California is a prime example of how expensive this transition can be, now the cost of power in California is 50% higher than the national average. With your current setup, you are paying a monthly expense for something that offers no added value aside from keeping the lights on. Historically speaking, the cost of power does not get cheaper. Most, if not all, of the Country will be powered by 100% renewable energy by 2050. With states like Virginia, Illinois, North Carolina, and 20 others states having a required percentage of renewable energy on the grid it’s only a matter of time until you are left with two options: forever pay for the rising cost of electricity, or produce clean, renewable energy at your home for a fraction of the price.
This is the most common question we get asked when educating homeowners on renewable energy, and the answer is nothing out of pocket! There is no “one size fits all” approach when dealing with solar; each home has a unique build with different electric needs. Your best bet is to contact one of our solar experts to understand your project better. Due to the high infrastructure cost associated with updating the electrical grid, renewable energy projects, and decommissioning fossil fuel plants, the consumers are often the ones that have to pay the price.

By owning a solar energy system, you are protecting your home against the rising cost of power, creating an end date for your electric bill, and helping offset your carbon footprint to help make a cleaner world for all.
