Declare Independence from Your Electric Bill

Updated: Dec 1, 2021

If you live in a state with high electricity costs, chances are you’ve seen your utility bill soar higher and higher every year. And there’s virtually no chance rates will ever go down. One way to shield yourself from rising electricity costs is to install a solar energy system, which will start saving you money immediately, as soon as it’s turned on. Moreover, a solar energy system not only pays for itself eventually, but with net metering, you may even be able to sell energy you don’t use back to the utility company and get credits on your bill. How satisfying is that!

You can calculate here approximately how much you’ll save on your electric bill each year by going solar. Depending on how expensive electricity is in your state, you may see your monthly bill lowered significantly or even eliminated if you’re generating enough power to meet all your needs. The experts at Ion Solar Pros will help you figure out how many panels would be required on your home.

Another advantage is that you’ll reap the benefits of solar panels for a long time, as they generally last 25 – 30 years or more and there are few expenses after the initial installation. There are no moving parts, and maintenance is simple; you just need to keep the panels relatively clean. If you don’t want to do this yourself with a hose and a bucket of soapy water, there are plenty of companies that specialize in solar panel cleaning. Prices generally start at $15 per panel, and cleaning twice a year should be sufficient.

What if you decide to invest in a solar energy system but then you sell your house? It’s likely you can still recoup your investment because having solar panels can increase your home’s value. As a clean and renewable energy source, solar will never run out and doesn’t harm the environment like other sources of energy such as oil or coal.
