Educating People on How to Save Money by Going Green

Top Reasons - Why Go Solar

Going solar has a wide range of benefits and that’s great news! Whether economic, environmental, or personal, all of these benefits are fueling the United States’ solar power boom.

Save Money

Completely eliminate or drastically reduce your electric bills

Electricity costs can make up a large portion of the overall budget for your home, business or non-profit. With a solar panel system, you’ll be generating free power over the 25-30 year life cycle of your system. Even if you don’t produce all of the energy you consume, your utility bills will still be much smaller and you’ll save a lot of money.

Earn Money

Earn a great return on your investment

Solar panels aren’t an expense. They’re an investment that pays handsome returns, often rivaling those of more traditional investments such as stocks or bonds. Substantial savings, as well as the potential in some regions to actually generate revenue, can result in ROIs of 20{0607b45f0ebfe4f3e5ee5e9e4e499b92969bd63887f3823f3010ce0356c9f892} or more, making solar one of the best ways to invest your hard-earned dollars.

Protect Against Rising Cost

Protect against rising energy costs

Because energy prices are so unpredictable, they can make managing your budget very difficult, especially for businesses or homeowners whose cash flow fluctuates month-to-month. By making these costs more predictable, solar power systems have the added benefit of improving a home or business owner’s expense management capabilities, and give you one less worry in your day.

Increase Property Value

Increase your property value

Early studies have found that buildings and homes equipped with clean energy systems have higher property values, often selling twice as fast and at a premium of 3-4{0607b45f0ebfe4f3e5ee5e9e4e499b92969bd63887f3823f3010ce0356c9f892} over similar homes in the same neighborhood. Appraisers are increasingly taking solar installation into consideration as they value the home at the time of a sale. As appraisers and consumers become more educated, homes or commercial properties equipped with solar panel systems will become more and more in demand and may even get even higher premiums.

Global Independence

Boost U.S. energy independence

Solar energy is a pathway to achieving U.S. energy independence from foreign oil. Because we consume far more oil than we produce (25{0607b45f0ebfe4f3e5ee5e9e4e499b92969bd63887f3823f3010ce0356c9f892} vs. 3{0607b45f0ebfe4f3e5ee5e9e4e499b92969bd63887f3823f3010ce0356c9f892}), the U.S. is not only dependent on foreign sources for our oil, but we’re also transferring billions of dollars from our economy to oil producing countries.

Dream Job

Create jobs and help your local economy

Studies predict the clean energy sector will generate between 3-5 million “green collar” jobs over the next decade. Because these jobs tend to be higher paying and generally are not “outsource-able”, they represent a significant contributor to the U.S. economy.

Protect the Enviorment

Protect the environment

Solar is a great way to reduce your carbon footprint. Buildings are responsible for close to 35{0607b45f0ebfe4f3e5ee5e9e4e499b92969bd63887f3823f3010ce0356c9f892} of all carbon emissions in the U.S. and going solar can decrease that number significantly. A typical residential solar panel system will eliminate 3-4 tons of carbon emissions each year—roughly the equivalent of planting over 100 trees every year.

The Sooner You Go Solar The More You Could Save.

    UEC Solar did a fantastic job. They kept every promise, and our system is up and running with SCE Approval in just about a month. The installers treated the property like it was their own. They installed the system so neatly. All conduits are painted to match whatever color is behind them - everything looks like it was built when the house was.  Nothing looks 'added on'.  I am super finicky about my house - and I'm blown away at the price, speed, quality, looks of the system, and professionalism of everyone involved.  I was treated with such respect by everyone there.  If you want the best bang for the buck, a system that is installed quickly, safely, and professionally, you likely will not find a better company to do the job.  I stand firmly behind UEC Solar.  -Robert S. in Arcadia, CA.

Reduce or Eliminate your Monthly Utility Bills by Going Solar

One of the major benefits of installing a solar power system in your home is that you can eliminate or reduce your monthly utility bills. For businesses and homeowners, monthly utility bills often make up a large chunk of their entire budget. An individual who pays $100 a month on utilities will end up paying $1200 in a year. In 20 years’ time, assuming there are no price change, this is a $24,000 expense on electricity alone.

However, utility rates are rarely stagnant. Instead, they generally increase every year at a rate of 2.5{0607b45f0ebfe4f3e5ee5e9e4e499b92969bd63887f3823f3010ce0356c9f892} to 7{0607b45f0ebfe4f3e5ee5e9e4e499b92969bd63887f3823f3010ce0356c9f892}. This means that the $24,000 is likely a low estimate. Unfortunately, gradually increasing electric rates can be unstable and unpredictable, particularly if electric power generation in your area depends on the price of gas.

So why wouldn’t you install solar panels on your home? With a high-quality solar system you can protect yourself against most future increases in electricity costs by generating your own power and becoming more energy independent. Most customers see huge savings start as soon as their panels are installed. What’s more, as most utility costs are estimated to keep rising year after year, your savings will also continue growing yearly over the 25 – 30 year lifespan of your solar panel system.

For anyone who wants to save money, control costs and avoid unexpected energy price fluctuations in the future, installing solar panels and a solar PV system is the perfect solution. If you are looking to finally go solar in Los Angeles, United Express Construction is the perfect fit for the job.

Frequently Asked Question

1. What are the financial benefits of solar energy?

After installing a solar energy system in your home or property, you save money on paying monthly utility bills. This is a good way to protect yourself against rising electricity rates in the future. The amount of money saved largely depends on the utility rates as well as solar policies in your State or area. All in all, going solar is a smart investment irrespective of where you live.

2. What are the environmental benefits of solar energy?

Solar power, just like every other renewable energy resources, has many environmental and health benefits. Solar is a clean energy generated from a natural source, the Sun. This makes it suitable for the environment. Going solar is one of the appropriate ways of helping Mother Nature. When you switch to solar, not only are you helping yourself, you are also helping the environment. Going solar lessens the emission of greenhouse gasses. Pollution created by solar is very low. Thus, health problems are reduced.

3. How do I find out how much I pay for electricity?

The easiest way to know the amount paid for electricity is by taking records of your utility electricity bill. Review EnergySage’s guide to reading your electricity bill to find out exactly what to look for.

4. What is net metering?

Net metering, or Net Energy Metering, is the system whereby surplus power produced by a home is sent back to the electric grid during the moments when more power being generated by your system is more than required. At the point when this happens, your meter keeps counting in reverse.  Net metering helps you in accounting for these high points and low points in your everyday power generation and utilization. Net metering policies differ from state to state – from Massachusetts to California to Hawaii – so make sure to do your homework ahead of time.

5. How does solar the value of my home or property?

Studies have revealed that homes and property with solar energy systems sell for more than homes without them. However, your property value will only increase if you own, rather than lease, your solar panel system. In most parts of the country, going solar will actually increase your property value more than a kitchen renovation.

7. Is power produced by my solar power when the sun isn’t up?

The amount of power that can be produced by your solar energy system depends on available sunlight. Due to this, less energy will be generated by your system during cloudy weather, and non at night. This is why battery systems are used to store energy for that will cover for times like this. However, because of high electricity costs and financial incentives, solar remains a smart decision even if you live in a cloudy city.

8. What happens if snow falls on my solar panels?

Solar panels convert the sunshine into power. Snow on your panels will obstruct rays from the sun from getting to your panel. Thus, no power will be produced. However, snow generally isn’t heavy enough to cause structural issues with your panels, and since most panels are tilted at an angle, the snow will slide off. In case snow accumulates, you can easily clean your panels.

9. Even with solar panels, is it advisable to go off grid?

After installing solar panels on your property, it is advisable to remain connected to the grid. Even though you may be able to store energy using solar batteries, but these solar cells have limited power storage capacity. They may be unable to supply your household demands in no-sunlight situations, especially during the summer months. Connecting to the grid also makes it possible for you to take advantage of Net Metering. Going totally off the grid will cost you significantly more. This is unnecessary for the majority of homeowners.

10. Will I still receive an electric bill if I have solar panels?

Unless your solar energy system includes battery storage and you are totally off the grid, you will still receive a bill from your utility company. However, you can dramatically reduce your bill, or even cut the amount you owe to $0, by taking advantage of Net Metering or by installing a solar panel system that matches your energy use.

11. Do solar panels work in a blackout?

In case your solar panel system is connected to the grid, it will shut off during an outage. This is to prevent emergency responders and electricity utility repair technicians from being injured by your panels sending power back to the grid. However, there are certain inverters you can buy that provide backup power in a blackout when paired with a battery.

12. Is it costly to maintain solar panels?

Solar panel systems are made of durable tempered glass. They have a longer lifespan and require little to no maintenance for the 25 to 35 years that they will generate power. In most cases, you don’t even need to clean your solar panels regularly. If something does happen, most equipment manufacturers include warranties. However, warranty terms depend on the company, and if the company is still in operation at that period.

13. Will the solar system be noisy?

Power inverters are relatively quiet. They only emit about as much noise as a refrigerator. They are generally installed in utility rooms or basements alongside existing mechanical systems, rather than in living spaces.
