Jennings is going Solar!
The cost of going solar is declining so it makes sense to get on board with renewable and sustainable solar energy. What type of savings can you expect from solar? That depends on a few key factors:
- How much energy you consume.
- The size of your solar system (minus Pluto).
- Purchasing or leasing solar energy system.
- Local electricity rates.
- Hours you have direct sunlight.
- Leasing or owning your system.
Going solar reduces monthly utility bills by making this long-term and low-risk investment! Jennings is here to help you accomplish this. Did you know that a home with solar panels has an increased value (like adding a bathroom or new kitchen) and could sell for more than a home without the solar panel upgrades? And two cheers for the sun (woot woot), solar works everywhere!
Even in the Pacific Northwest and Alaska where solar resources seem low, most states have good-to-excellent solar resources. The advantages of solar energy are it’s renewable, unlimited, and is low emission producing.
Off/On Grid-Tied Solar Installation
People in many states across the country have lived off grid for longer than most of us have been aware. Solar is suitable for remote areas that aren’t connected to energy grids. Perhaps by design but most because they truly don’t have access to even simple lighting; relying on solar is the only option. Using fuel-based lights can cause harm indoors because it contaminates the air.
The most common type of solar power setups in America are tied to the electrical grid and work without the need of backup battery equipment. This solar energy style is the most cost effective and less apt to fail. You can earn credits during summer which offsets your electric bills in the winter. These on grid PV systems have a life span of 20-30 years. Going solar not only provides green jobs with its research, manufacture, sales, and installation, but it’s also a tax write-off at the end of the year – for 2022 it’s 30% back. What does that mean? If your system is $20k, then your tax credit will be $6k. That’s a win-win!
