The residential solar industry has taken off in recent years and there are many good reasons why. If you’ve been thinking about switching to solar you know that there are a lot of things to consider. Here are some of the best reasons to make the jump and switch to solar.
Solar energy will help to lower your monthly energy bills
Reduced energy bills are the main reason that people start looking into solar energy. Over time solar energy pays for itself. The electricity created by your panels will reduce your energy bills enough to make a significant difference in your monthly electricity spending. These savings will add up quickly giving you a fast return on your investment.
Increase to your property value
Solar panel systems can increase your home’s value in the real estate market. Recent studies show an average increase in resale value between $4,020 and $5,911 for each 1 kilowatt of solar panels installed. The price of an average residential solar system is generally recouped in the home’s sale price. Plus, households purchasing solar are rewarded with lower energy bills and healthy tax incentives that can cover the system’s costs multiple times over the life of its warranty.
Government incentives and tax breaks
There are significant government incentives for switching to solar power. The federal government offers a solar tax credit, and many states, like Massachusetts, offer tax breaks. Learning what the solar tax credit is, how the solar tax credit works, and becoming familiar with additional state-based solar incentives will ensure that you are getting the best deal possible for your solar power upgrade.

Investing in solar energy helps the economy
