What My Generation Energy Customers Wish They Knew Before Going Solar

Transitioning to solar power is not just an eco-friendly decision—it’s a lifestyle change that offers significant financial benefits. At My Generation Energy, we’ve gathered insights from our customers about their experiences, focusing on the lessons learned along the way that can help new adopters get the most out of their solar investments.

The True Scale of Financial Benefits

Long-Term Savings: My Generation Energy’s customers often express surprise at the scale of savings on their electric bills. Knowing more about these savings would have encouraged many of them to switch to solar even sooner.

Incentives and Rebates: Understanding the range of available solar incentives and rebates from the outset can significantly enhance the financial benefits. Our customers appreciate learning about all the incentives available to them and how they lower their upfront costs and improve the return on their investment.

Increased Home Value: Solar installations can increase your property’s market value. Customers wish they had understood this benefit earlier, as it adds another layer of financial advantage to the decision to go solar.

Understanding the Advantages of System Ownership

Investment Benefits: As an investment, owning your solar system pays for itself over time through energy savings and can also significantly increase your property’s value. When customers decide to own their solar system instead of leasing, they became entitled to tax credits of up to 30% and rebates, like Renewable Energy Credits (RECs). These incentives, along with the savings on their electric bill, have considerably offset the initial investment.

Control and Flexibility: Customers who own their system outright have total control over their system. They can upgrade or modify the system as needed without negotiating changes with a third party. This flexibility has been invaluable, especially as their energy needs have evolved over time.

Environmental Impact and Immediate Savings

Reduced Carbon Footprint: Customers are often amazed at the tangible impact they can have on the environment. Knowing the specific figures related to carbon emission reduction can be a strong motivator. According to Boston.com, “the average Massachusetts household can save an estimated $35,900 over the next 20 years by installing a rooftop solar system.”

Immediate Savings: One of the most immediate and impactful benefits of installing solar panels is the significant reduction in monthly electric bills from the moment the system becomes operational. Customers often find that their solar panels generate enough power to meet most, if not all, of their daily electricity needs, depending on the size of the system and their energy consumption habits. This reduction can be especially pronounced during peak sunlight hours when electricity rates might be higher.

Maximizing Solar Usage: Customers who understood how to maximize their use of solar energy—by running appliances during peak solar hours or investing in battery storage—were able to further reduce their reliance on grid-supplied electricity, thereby increasing their savings.

System Performance and Maintenance Simplicity

Low Maintenance Needs: Customers are generally surprised and relieved at how little maintenance solar panels require. Knowing this upfront can alleviate concerns about potential upkeep costs and effort.

Customer Support

Strong Customer Support: Understanding the extent of My Generation Energy’s customer support reassures new adopters, and our customers appreciate knowing that they have continuous support to maximize their system’s performance and a reliable partner on their side.


The journey to solar energy is filled with discoveries and benefits. My Generation Energy customers learned about these aspects from My Generation Energy’s experienced staff found themselves more satisfied and better prepared to make the most of their investment.
