Homes and business all over the world are switching to renewable energy options, so why shouldn’t you do the same for your Bayshore business or home? Here are a few of our favorite reasons why solar power is the number one choice for energy:
It goes without saying that harnessing the energy of the sun is a wonderful way to lessen our carbon footprint on the earth. Solar power does not produce any harmful emissions, but the same cannot be said of conventional power generation.
Of course, there are a few up-front costs when it comes to installing your new solar panels. However, solar power can save you tons of money on your energy bills each month. And, once it’s time to sell your home, having solar panels already installed can increase your property value to future homeowners. A study by Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory in CA showed that buyers were willing to pay up to $15,000 more for a house that has a solar power system in place.
All Day, Every Day
A common myth we hear is that solar panels don’t work on cloudy or overcast days. This isn’t true! Solar energy is actually created from daylight and not specifically sunlight. Even when the Bayshore weather is less-than-favorable, your solar panels will still be harnessing energy.
