Help the Earth
Implementing solar panels helps to counteract carbon emissions from non-renewable energy sources such as oil, natural gas, or coal. As a result, the general health of the public improves.
Because solar energy is renewable, meaning it never runs out because it is naturally replaced, it is free and accessible to all.
Increase Your Home Value and Save Money
The only cost involved in the process is the actual installation of the solar panels. But, because they last up to 40 years and the homeowner is able to sell banked energy back to major power companies, the investment truly pays for itself.
Most importantly, your decision to switch to solar panels is quite literally an investment in your or your children’s future. In general, people who switch tend to develop improved energy consumption habits. This lends itself to personal financial stability as well as environmental protection.
In Redfin’s article, we share our research and our thoughts on climate change and how going solar helps people embrace an environmentally friendly lifestyle.
“Powering up with solar is an easy way to save money, reduce your carbon footprint, and become more environmentally friendly from the comfort of your home. When homeowners switch to solar, they can reduce or eliminate their electric bills, provide excess energy back to the grid for savings and rebates, and can reliably power their home in lieu of a generator during inclement weather.”
But that’s not all—read what else we have to say in the article here.
