5 Benefits of Solar Power Systems
Solar power systems benefit both you and the community. Here are five of the biggest benefits offered by solar power systems:
- Solar power or photovoltaic (PV) systems greatly reduce – and sometimes even completely eliminate – the amount of electricity you have to purchase from your utility company to power your home. Using solar power helps reduce our energy reliance on fossil fuels.
- The electricity generated by your solar power system is clean, renewable and reliable. It will help reduce the amount of greenhouse gases – a major contributor to global climate change.
- Solar power systems save you money on your electricity bill – both now and in the future. A solar power system can protect you from future price increases by providing you with fixed energy costs.
- A growing solar industry provides local jobs and economic development opportunities for our community.
- Using solar power benefits the community by reducing electricity demand and providing additional electricity for the grid when you generate more than you use during the day, when the demand is highest.
