What To Expect When Going Solar

The amount of homeowners who are powering their home with solar energy is surging in the state of Florida and across the country. According to the SEIA, the U.S. installed 3.6 gigawatts (GW) of solar PV capacity in Q1 of 2020, which is enough to power 15.7 million homes. This trend is expected to continue growing, and it’s important to know what you can expect when you decide to install solar into your home.

Consistent Energy Prices

This credit allows interested homeowners to drastically reduce the overall cost of their solar install and make the switch to going solar much more convenient.

Reliability

Solar panels require little to none maintenance cost or upkeep. They are resilient and keep you safe from power outages, as you can rely on your battery to store the extra energy you produce to power your home. This is especially helpful during hurricane season.
