Let Solar Energy Boost Your Eco-Ego
There are several ways to boost your home’s energy efficiency, but, by far and away, installing solar panels is the best way to go about it. At Roberts-McNutt, we have solar solutions for residential and commercial properties. We believe that solar power is the best way to power your residence, mostly because it keeps your energy cost down and can actually be fed back into the grid to get you credit from the company that provides your electricity. One of the concerns we hear most about the affordability of solar panels. While there is no easy way to answer that as the pricing has changed (lowered) in recent years and there is no fixed price, there is a federal tax credit of 30% for solar investments, which can curb the cost of getting solar panels for your home or business.
Another thing to think about is what type of solar solutions are available and which is right for you. The primary two solar systems are solar thermal and solar photovoltaic (PV). The latter has the benefits of having a longer lifespan, great efficiency throughout the year, and can provide over half the energy your home needs to function. Conversely, solar thermal benefits from its ability to provide heated water for houses and are relatively maintenance free, plus, they take up less space. There are other factors to take into account, such as storage of power and the differences between direct and indirect solar energy conversion, which may affect your decision.
Regardless of which type of solar solution you choose, Roberts-McNutt is sure to provide you with exactly what you’re looking for. If you have any more questions about solar energy and the benefits it can provide, or how it works, contact us and we’ll be more than happy to help you. The time to switch to solar is now, especially with the prices of other energy sources on the rise. Rather than paying your energy company all of your hard earned money, have them pay you when you put power back into the grid. Let Roberts-McNutt help you boost your eco-ego today by giving you the means to reduce your carbon footprint and take advantage of our greatest renewable source of energy.
