1. Solar Helps Save You Money
The average household in New Jersey can spend upwards of $3,000 annually on just their electric bill. With the addition of solar power to your home, you can save 20% on the monthly electric bill. This all adds up to be a difference of $100 or more on your monthly electric bill. These savings can also be combined with your solar tax incentives that you could receive.
2. Power Comes From The Sun
Our solar cells, or photovoltaic (PV) cells, are the most important components of your panels. The PV cells are made with several different types of materials, such as monocrystalline silicon, polycrystalline silicon, and thin film. They are manufactured with a positive and negative layer to mimic the electric field of a battery. This allows PV cells to serve as semiconductors that capture the photons from sunlight and transform them into direct current (DC) electricity. This electricity is what will directly power your home.
3. Solar Can Be Installed Almost Anywhere
Because solar panels are so durable and easy to install, solar can be installed almost anywhere that you have a structure for it. We have expanded the possibilities of solar installation over the years. With this, even ideas of portable solar are being achieved. Solar on your roof is one of the best areas for you to place solar because of the location. By being in the perfect spot to collect sunlight, you can ensure you are saving the most amount of money possible.
4. Cost of Solar Power is Declining
Solar panels have become widely popular during 2020. With popularity, there is more production. More production of solar panels has allowed for the technologies to become much more efficient and costs to be lowered. Not only this, but certain states want more clean energy, which leaves solar to take over. All of these events combined is the reason that solar is continuing to decrease in price every single day.
