Solar Panel Cost - It’s Less Than You Think
These Solar panels on my own home roof save me a fortune on energy costs.
There are a lot of questions about the bottom line of solar panel cost. Most people just want to know the price of the panels, when this isn’t an accurate way to figure out what it will cost you to set your home up on a solar panel system. P.S. Liked this post?
Before you do anything, look for your state’s energy office. Each state has one - some might be called conservation office. When you find it, search their site for renewable energy links.
Use those links to see if your state offers any rebates or credits for outfitting your home with solar panels. If so, you can figure in that financial break as part of the savings for going green.
When adding up the costs involved with having a more economic way of getting electricity, don’t look so hard at the forest that you miss the trees. Because it’s what you overlook that can be where the real savings lie.
Let’s say you’ve decided to use a grid tied system and it’s going to cost you $1,000 to set up a small solar system. On your state’s energy site, you see that they’re offering a $300 rebate and a tax credit worth $75.
Your system now only costs $625 for you to buy. You look at your electric bills and see that your costs vary between $250 and $325 depending on the season. Once you have your system set up, your bill drops to an average of $75.
You’re saving between $175 to $250 every month. Within a few months that $1,000 system is paid for just by rebates and energy savings alone. Many utility companies also offer savings for people who want to set up their home with solar panels. When it’s time to file your taxes, you might just discover that you get more savings from the federal government, too.
But before you decide which panels you want to buy, figure out how many kilowatt hours of electricity your home uses and buy your system based on whether you want solar energy to cover all of your home electric output or only some of it.
Take into consideration too the location of your home and the amount of daylight hours you get. Some solar systems can be expensive, but keep in mind that when you buy your system, the cost of living is going to continue to rise.
Electricity rates will rise, but with a solar system in place that takes care of all of your electric demands, you won’t have to be concerned with those rising costs. What you pay for up front will last you many years.
The solar panel cost you pay for your home gives you back dividends in energy resource savings, convenience (having power when a storm knocks out power to your neighbors), and financial savings. So the real question isn’t, “What does it cost me to get a solar panel system for my home?” but rather, “What will it cost me if I don’t?”
Why are you searching for information about solar power for homes?
