The Top 3 Reasons the United States Will Benefit from Solar

Solar Power is becoming more practical, and popular, with American consumers. The Solar industry is thriving. It was not long ago that Solar energy was once considered nothing more than an expensive novelty. Now, solar companies are hiring, the Earth is that much greener, and people are becoming self-sufficient; all the while they’re saving money. Here are the three main reasons why Solar Energy will transform the Country.

Solar Will Grow the Economy

The United States has experienced a booming Solar market for both residential and business sectors. According to The Solar foundation, the U.S. has more than doubled its workforce in the industry since 2012. (https://www.thesolarfoundation.org/national/) The market and demand is there for Solar Energy and it will only continue to grow. Even in these uncertain times, people are converting to Solar Energy.

Solar Power is self-sufficient and fiscally responsible.

There are many different reasons why people convert to Solar. Solar Energy is a way to become self-sufficient. Households can live off their own supply of energy. People would save money in the long run and would see a return on investment. The return on investment, ROI, would depend on the cost of the equipment and installation, the cost of your energy now, and how much electricity you use. For many homeowners that converted to Solar their ROI was less than a decade.

Solar Power would create a cleaner, greener, healthier Environment.

Solar energy is most importantly, green energy. Solar is beneficial to the environment. There has been a large social movement to push for alternative energy. Solar is becoming that affordable alternative. People want to reduce their carbon footprint and Solar can help with that. Solar Power has a longer life than fossil fuels and the conversion to Solar can help to mitigate the effects of pollution and Climate Change. Climate Change poses a potential threat to the United States and the rest of the world. It is important for Americans to cull the effects of man made climate change.

These are the three main reasons why Solar Energy will change America for the better. It will help change the world for the better. It starts with everyday consumers. Supporting and converting to Solar will create jobs for manufacturers and installers. Solar will save money for consumers while also helping to save the environment.
