At first, switching to solar energy may seem like an intimidating change, but it’s actually a simple transition that comes with insurmountable benefits - the most immediate being the money you’ll save on energy bills from DAY ONE.
But there's more to solar energy than simply saving money. Here are all the outstanding benefits of switching to solar power.
Save on Your Energy Bills
The most obvious and noticeable outcome of installing solar panels on your home is the immediate savings you’ll notice on energy bills.
And the best part is you don’t have to worry too much about how big your solar panel installation is - however many panels you decide to have installed, you’ll be saving money. Of course, the bigger the installation, the more money you’ll save, going up to having ZERO expenses on monthly electricity.
If you love numbers
The average for energy savings in a 20-year time span for Americans is roughly $20,000. In more populous areas (like New York), the savings can go up to $30,000. In Hawaii (where the sun is ever so present), the savings got close to $65,000.
Add Value to Your Property
Homes with solar panels will automatically increase on market value and sell faster as well. A research showed that homes with solar panels sell 20% faster and for 17% more money (Source: NREL)
Do you know about solar incentives?
Many states in the country have incentives to photovoltaic (PV) adoption. It varies from one state to another, but in almost every case, you won’t have to pay the entire installation by yourself - in some cases, you can even get paid for producing solar energy.

Reliability and Security
No one can charge you for sunlight. For that reason, sun power will always be a secure method for generating energy, and it’s just as reliable too - you can always project how much energy will be generated, as the sun never stops rising, no matter where you are.
The Earth Thanks You
The environment greatly benefits from the use of solar energy instead of nuclear power plants:
