Benefits of Solar
Written by Chelsea W
Most of us have heard at some point or another that solar power is awesome. It’s the way of the future! Its great for the environment! It makes your home or business look super cool! You will add years to your life!
Okay, that last one might be a bit of a stretch, but I think there’s still good potential there. Aside from those I listed above, I’ve compiled some of my favorite reasons that truly make solar AWESOME!
Solar Emits No Greenhouse Gasses
In a time when it seems almost impossible to get away from, solar energy generation does not create any greenhouse byproducts. Power your home or business, leave no footprint in doing so, make the world a better place. Easiest gold star you’ll ever earn.
Knock, knock! Loads of Savings are at Your Door!
Depending on the ratio of energy produced by your array versus your use, solar allows for you to drastically reduce, and in some cases eliminate, your electricity bill. Any excess electricity produced by your system is purchased by your utility company. That’s right! You will get paid to do your part. Rock on!
Additionally, there are great tax incentives at the city, state and federal levels to install solar on both commercial and residential properties. Between those incentives and reduced electricity costs, you can finally take that much deserved vacation you’ve been dreaming up—and your home will still be making money saving electricity in your absence!
Fixed Energy Rates
When you’re wholly reliant on getting electricity from the grid, you’re at the mercy of the utility company and their prices. As a result, electricity costs have climbed over time. With solar, you don’t have to worry about skyrocketing rates. You are the master of your own fate!
Your Panels Will Probably Outlive You
Here at SolTerra, we only use the highest quality solar products, so your solar panels will come with a warranty up to 25 years. However, the lifespan of a panel is generally upwards of 30-40 years. As long as there is a sun (even despite the clouds), your system will be there for you, soaking up those rays and powering your latest Netflix binge.

Let’s pretend for a second that saving the earth, saving your hard-earned money, getting closer to energy independence and doing so with a system that will likely have your back for decades AREN’T good enough reasons to get solar. With the addition of solar, your neighbors, friends and family will think you are the most innovative chick on the block.
