Solar energy is the new investment when it comes to conscious energy and helping the environment these days, but it’s hard to know if investing in something is really going to “save you tons of money.” So, can solar panels save me money? That’s always the real question before making this big investment as a homeowner.
Are Solar Panels A Good Idea?
The answer is yes, you can benefit from serious house savings over the lifetime of your solar panel system. Solar energy panels give you the ability to save money by creating a natural source of energy that can power your home and even heat your pool! However, if you’re looking to lower your electricity costs it really depends on a few things first if you’re trying to save the most money possible. A few things to consider before making the investment are:
- How many direct hours of sunlight does your home get?
- Is your current electricity bill super expensive?
- If you’re looking to heat your pool, how large is your pool?
Keep in mind as well, that although a solar energy system can benefit your house savings, they are also a big investment upfront. However, they pay off and homeowners end up making a profit eventually! Let’s now take a look at how much these systems can actually save you.
How Much Do Solar Panels Save?
If you’re interested in learning more about what a solar energy system can do for house savings you first need to find out how much you’re spending on electricity every year. You then need to multiply that by the national average electricity rate (around $0.1301). From there, you would get how much you’re spending on electricity every year. Does this number seem high to you? Are you living in an area with high energy rates? If this is you, then you might want to look into investing in solar panels. They are not only good for the environment but also are a great investment because:
- The price of energy will never drop, it is only going up from here
- The price of solar panels has improved, so it will be easier to make a profit
- Solar panels are long-lasting, and do not require that much upkeep!
