6 Great reasons to go Solar
Reduce or even eliminate your electric bills – Electricity costs can make up a large portion of your monthly expenses. With a solar panel system, you’ll generate your own power. Even if you do not produce 100 percent of the energy you need, solar will drastically reduce your utility bills.

Tax credits – In many states in the US there are large tax incentives to install solar greatly reducing the cost and getting you to a positive return more quickly.

Increased property value – Real estate surveys have found that homes equipped with solar energy systems have higher property values and sell more quickly than non-solar homes.

Saving the environment – Switching to solar is a great way to reduce the number of fossil fuels you consume and emissions you produce.

Energy Security – Generators can break, fossil fuels can run out, and utility companies can dissolve. The sun, on the other hand, is not going anywhere anytime soon.

National Security – depending on imported energy sources is a risky proposition by replacing imported energy with solar we reduce the US dependence on foreign partners.
