Solar-Curious? Learn if solar is right for your home


People who run their homes on sunshine can save 20-100% on energy costs. This is the number one reason why every day more people switch to home solar even though the environmental benefits of pollution-free energy are well known.  In fact, the solar industry is creating new jobs at a faster pace than gas, oil and coal combined to keep up with consumer demand.

Unfortunately, not everyone who would like to go solar qualifies.

Not sure if solar is right for you? Scroll down to the info-graphic below. It could help make it easier for you to decide if you should explore solar power for your home.

There are tons of homeowners who probably could go solar but have put off looking into it because they heard that going solar is expensive. The truth is today you can pay NOTHING for solar panels and installation with a Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) to lock in an electricity rate that is lower than what you currently pay to your utility. (Many people call this the no-brainer option, because you literally pay nothing to start saving money.)

The bottom line is that the ideal solar home has these three things:

  1. An unshaded rooftop or plenty of unshaded property that would work for a ground mounted system
  2. Enough space to hold enough solar panels to generate enough power to offset costs
  3. The homeowner has a good credit rating

If you have an unshaded area, enough roof space and a good credit rating, chances are you do qualify to go solar.

Of course, if you want to know for sure if your home qualifies, the best thing to do is to fill out the form on this page or give us a call.  We can look at your home online and let you know right away if there is enough roof space or property to make going solar a practical option for you.

During the winter, energy use increases due to extra lighting and heating needs, causing higher rates and higher utility bills for homeowners. During the summer, utility bills go way up due to increased power usage from air conditioning. But Solar Energy World’s still pay a lot less for electricity than neighbors who still run their homes on dirty energy, no matter what the temperature is like outside.

You should know going solar doesn’t happen overnight. Although an actual home installation typically only takes one day, due to utility paperwork, inspections, permits etc. it can take anywhere from 4-10 weeks from the day you sign up for your system to go live.  We take care of all the paperwork for you, including applications for tax breaks and grants, but it still takes time to make sure it is done right.

The process can be slowed down even more by the shorter days and inclement weather of winter. The longer you wait to make the switch to solar, the longer it will take for you to see savings of 20-100% on your electricity bills.

That’s money out of your pocket.  So, isn’t it time to find out if you qualify for solar?

DID YOU KNOW?… Solar adoption is growing quickly in the USA and on the East coast in particular where utility rate hikes are never ending and generous tax breaks augment the federal tax breaks and incentives for homeowners who go solar.
