Actually, thanks to the push towards renewable energy through both local and federal initiatives, it is cheaper to create your own electricity than it is to buy your power from the Utility Company. You can get Solar with no out-of-pocket cost and begin saving money the day your system is turned on! The types of programs and sun exposure will determine how much savings you see below your current utility rates.
All of the solar financing programs Evolution Solar works with are fully transferable if you decide to sell your home. Along with that, recent studies show that solar panels will increase the value of your home while helping you sell quicker! On average, a home with Solar will see 3 to 4 different owners during the lifespan of the equipment, all of whom will benefit from the power being created on-site at cheaper utility rates.
Every system is professionally installed and weather sealed. Each installation includes a roof penetration warranty and a separate insurance policy which covers not only the roof itself, but everything inside your home as well! Solar has been known to extend the life of the roof it is covering because the panels will absorb most of the weather and harmful elements that typically break down your roof material, which means you will typically get more life out of your roof than you would without rooftop solar panels.
Since we warranty and insure all of our roof penetrations, we will be the first to tell you if you need a new roof prior to installing a solar system. The good news is in many cases, you can even include a new roof with your Solar panels project, with little or no money out of your pocket!
According to information collected by the Energy Information Administration (www.eia.gov), Residential Utility Rates across the country have nearly doubled in the last 25 years. So even if your bill seems low now, lowering your electric costs through Solar panels and protecting your rate always makes sense.
Solar technology is better now than it has ever been. With today’s technology, with even just a small part of the U.S. deserts covered, we could capture enough energy to power the entire world. The average increase in a home’s efficiency greatly exceeds any loss of efficiency in the solar panels, which means a system that is creating all or most of your electricity today should continue to do so for the lifetime of your equipment. Plus, as State and Federal incentives continue to decline over the next several years, the overall cost for Solar in Henderson - NV, Meriden - CT, East Haven - CT, and the rest of the country is likely to increase.
No, not at all! We have a large variety of different options to reduce your utility rates. This allows us to tailor each system based off what is the best fit for you and your family. We will explore all of the different incentives and programs you may be eligible for and make sure you understand how the programs work. Solar is not a “one-size-fits-all” product. When you schedule your no cost, no obligation solar consultation, we will explore all of the various options and let you decide what makes the most sense for your situation.
In most cases, we are able to produce 100% of the electricity your home currently uses. Each home is different, however, so we will take a look at your usage and even look at other energy saving options that can help save you money on your utility rates! If you are currently connected to the local utility, you may still have to pay a connection fee and certain government taxes once your system is turned on, but creating your power through Solar Panels is much cheaper since the bulk of your utility cost comes from the electricity you purchase from the utility company!
