Here are 5 things to know before buying solar…

Solar panels

1. The price of solar has fallen significantly in recent years.

Solar pricing is dropping

The price of solar panels has fallen by about 70% since 2010, making it much more affordable for homeowners and businesses to go solar. There are a variety of government incentives and tax breaks that can further offset the cost of installing solar panels.

2. Solar panels have a payback period of 7-10 years.

Solar pays back!

After the initial investment, it will take 7-10 years for your solar panels to start saving you money. However, the savings will continue for the lifetime of the panels, which is usually 20-25 years. Solar panels also increase the value of your home, so they are a wise investment even if you do not plan on staying in your home for the long term.

3. Solar panels require little maintenance.

Once your solar panels are installed, they require very little maintenance. You will need to occasionally clean them, but that is typically all that is needed to keep them running efficiently. Most solar panel manufacturers offer 20-25 year warranties, so you can be sure your investment is protected.


4. Solar energy is renewable and sustainable.

Solar energy comes from the sun, which is a renewable resource. This means that we will never run out of solar energy as long as the sun continues to shine. Additionally, solar energy does not produce any emissions, so it is a very sustainable way to power your home or business. 


5 .Solar panels can be installed on most roofs.

Solar panels can be installed on most types of roofs, including shingle, metal, tile, and flat roofs. If you have a south-facing roof that gets direct sunlight for most of the day, that is ideal for solar panels. However, even if your roof is not south-facing or does not get direct sunlight all day long, you can still install solar panels and reap the benefits of renewable energy.
