Why are more homeowners choosing solar?

Solar upgrades can make it possible to reduce or even eliminate utility bills over time, help protect against rising utility costs, and potentially increase your home's value

Let's shed more light on the benefits of solar.

Can help lower your utility bills
Generating your own power can offset the amount of power you need from the grid, which can significantly reduce or even eliminate bills.
Potential return on investment.
According to EnergySage, Solar panels are capable of generating returns ranging anywhere from 10 - 30% percent annually.
Protect against rising utility costs.
While residential electricity prices consistently go up about 3% annually, solar power usage does not contribute to your utility bill. Plus, Ygrene financing is available at a fixed interest rate.
Reduce your carbon footprint.
According to EnergySage, one home installing a solar energy system can have a measurable effect on the environment while helping reduce global reliance on fossil fuels.
