Solar power is no longer a distant dream for California homeowners. As many as 10 million American homes and buildings now have solar power. And that number continues to increase as solar panel costs and solar system costs decrease.
Why are Solar Panel Installations So Attractive?
Solar power is increasingly attractive because it can significantly reduce a homeowner’s energy bills. Solar power is also a safe and proven technology. It is a sustainable resource that everyone can use, and it has a lower environmental impact compared to other forms of energy generation. It makes a homeowner more energy-independent. And the photovoltaic panels require little maintenance. All these benefits can be provided by a certified Bay Area solar contractor.
Are Solar Panel Costs Declining? Why?
The Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA) has reported that residential solar system costs are about 70 percent less than in 2010. Continued advances in technology have steadily reduced solar panel costs and made solar power operation more efficient. Solar panels are now smaller and more durable than ever before. Also, economies of scale in manufacturing have reduced component costs.
Should I Wait for Solar Power to be Cheaper?
The answer is a confident “no.” While solar power costs may continue to decline, they’ll do so at a decreasing rate.
Three reasons drive acting now to install solar panels.
- By delaying, you will miss out on significant monthly savings on your energy bill. And gas and electric energy costs from PG&E continue to increase yearly.
- Favorable solar system tax credits may be phased out in the coming years.
- Adding reliable solar power to one’s home adds to your home value.
Waiting for further panel price drops will result in missing out on these significant benefits.
