Many homeowners are choosing to power their homes in Maine with solar panels, and for good reason. Whether you are considering a grid-tied system, a solar system with battery backup, a fully off-grid system, roof-mounted panels, or ground-mounted panels, by switching to solar power, you can lower your utility costs while also gaining energy independence, protect yourself from rising energy rates, and protect the environment.
The Homeowner’s Guide To Going Solar In Maine
The Benefits Of Solar Energy For Homeowners:
- You’ll become energy-independent by producing your own source of electricity. A properly designed system can produce and offset up to 100% of your electricity usage over the course of a year.
- Solar electric systems and battery backup currently qualify for a 30% federal tax credit, making now an opportune time to invest in solar.
- Most of our customers are seeing a system payback period of 7 to 12 years, yet they will reliably produce clean energy for 30+ years. Once your system pays for itself, you may enjoy 18-24 years or more of nearly free electricity (the utility still charges a minimum monthly delivery charge, currently at around $22 per month).
- Buyers see the benefits of buying a home that can generate its own electricity. Homebuyers were willing to pay a premium of $15,000 more for a home with an average-sized solar system.
- Solar power is environmentally friendly. When you install a solar electric system, you take real and tangible action to reduce pollution and conserve natural resources while harnessing an unlimited resource.
