Sep 11 3 Things You Didn’t Know About Solar Power
Solar power can be a difficult topic to learn. However, at Vision Solar we are doing everything we can to educate our customers. The more educated our customers are, the more comfortable they are with reaping the benefits of solar power. Because there is so much to learn about solar power, we have provided just 5 things you may not have known about solar power, but now will.
1. Solar Offers Tax Incentives
Depending on which state you reside in, each state has many different incentives for making the switch to solar. In New Jersey, Governor Phil Murphy is a huge supporter of renewable and clean energy. Because of this, he currently is doing everything he can to keep these incentives going. Currently tax credits, tax exemptions, and net metering are all part of New Jersey’s state incentives that come with solar power. All of these incentives give you a way to earn the money that you put into your panels back, and even enough to let them pay for themselves sometimes. To learn more about each of these incentives please visit our Page.
2. You Can Save Money With Solar
One of the best benefits that comes with your solar energy is the amount that you save on your monthly electricity bills. The average household in New Jersey can spend upwards of $3,000 annually on just their electric bill. With the addition of solar power to your home, you can save 20% on the monthly electric bill. This all adds up to be a difference of $100 or more on your monthly electric bill. With this, New Jersey continues to raise their prices on electricity. Every year the price per kWh goes up 2%. However, with solar energy, you will not face the increasing costs of electricity. Instead, you will pay the steady rate that is given to you by your solar panel company at the time of signing for your panel installation. This rate is based on the amount of panels you have and the amount of energy you use per month. Rather than overpaying for excess energy, solar costs are based on customization to your home.
3. There Is More Than One Type of Solar Panel
As technology advances, we begin to see all different types of solar panels. Currently, there are three primary types of solar panels for your home. These include monocrystalline, polycrystalline, and thin film panels. All of these panels have different levels of efficiency. This means that we take the time to see which panel is the best decision for your home.
