There are so many question that homeowners struggle with in 2019 on deciding whether solar power is the right for them. Well, we researched and discussed these questions with our Solar Experts at Go Green Electric, and here are your answers.
Are Solar Panels Worth It?
Solar panels can save you a lot of money. You can even generate and store power for future use. Let's look at how solar panels can save you money and why you should consider getting them for your Colorado home or local business.
How long do residential solar panels last?
Solar panels for home last at least 25 years and some now have 30 year warranties. The solar panel technology keeps improving, and we make it our priority at GGE to stay on top of solar panel technology and home battery storage systems. Our goal is to provide the best solar experience to our customers, and therefore continue to grow our solar business in Colorado.
Will solar panels add value to my residential home?
Solar power electricity adds value to a home so even if you decide to move residences within a few years you will still be ahead in terms of added home value. The first reason for this is that the federal tax credit currently pays for 30% of your system cost and so this means you only have to save enough on your energy bill to cover 70% of the price of solar. 2019 is the last year to receive the full 30% tax credit, so make sure to start planning your solar project today.
The cost of solar panel installation is now at a level where it is common to get enough savings on utility bills to pay off a solar system in 5-8 years. Colorado is ahead of the curve with transition to renewable energy, and offers a competitive market for solar installers. At Go Green Electric, we pride ourselves on giving our customers a competitive solar price and outstanding solar service.
Tips for Homeowners Interested in Solar Panels
Consumers should make sure they compare as many solar options as possible, especially since 2019 is the last year to receive the entire 30% tax credit. You want to make sure you aren't paying an inflated price from a popular installer in the solar industry. Go Green Electric is competitive in price with larger installers but provides a much higher level of customer service. We also provide a free solar quote which many large solar installers do not.
