Zero Energy Home Generates Big Savings
The homeowners of this zero energy home will save over $7,500 yearly. Located on the South Coast of Massachusetts, this solar array will generate 22,760 kWh of clean solar energy annually! That’s the equivalent of a homes’ energy usage for one year!
Wondering what makes a zero energy home? It’s a home that’s so energy efficient that it produces as much energy as it consumes. Homeowners of zero energy designs have a net zero energy bill and carbon footprint, and solar helps make that possible.
Save money with solar
You don’t have to have a zero energy home to save big. In addition to saving the environment, South Coast residents save money by going solar, too. Solar is the cheapest electricity in history, and according to the Solar Futures Study, solar will account for 40% of the U.S electricity by 2035. In addition, generous federal & state incentives for residential solar installations, “the average Massachusetts household can save an estimated $35,900 over the next 20 years by installing a rooftop solar system,” according to Boston.com.
How much might you save? Well, that depends on a variety of factors. We encourage South Coast residents and business owners to contact us for a free solar assessment. Every property is different, so a site assessment helps us provide you with an accurate estimate.
While we’re on the subject of saving money, buying your solar electric system outright provides the most savings (Consumer Reports agrees). However, if you can’t afford solar’s up-front costs, there are solar loans. Financing like this can make a solar installation more financially accessible. We can help educate you and file the paperwork if you decide to pursue a solar loan.
Earn money with solar
When you go solar, you won’t only save money on electricity. You’ll also be increasing the value of your home. As Money magazine states, “solar panels raise a home’s value by 4.1%.” For a $500,000 home, that translates to an additional $20,500 in your pocket!
With electric vehicles and clean energy on the rise, solar homes stand to become even more valuable in the future. Thus, your solar installation will continue to enrich you even when you sell your home.
Save the environment
Solar offers incredible financial benefits. However, it’s not just a good investment for your finances. Solar energy is also an excellent investment for the environment. Solar panels do not produce air pollution or greenhouse gases. In this way, going solar can mitigate climate change, help curb pollution, and improve human health.
