solar energy 02Are you considering installing solar energy in your home? How do you know if you’re ready to make this investment? And how do you go about hiring the right company to install your solar panels? Here are five questions you’ll want to ask yourself before you decide to install solar:

1.How much will it save?

California residents can expect to save more than almost anyone else when it comes to solar power. One infographic puts the monthly savings of the average California home at $143.

5 Advantages of Home Solar Systems

solar systemConsidering installing a solar system in your home? As solar panels become more affordable and more efficient, more and more California homeowners are considering installing them. When you work with professional solar panel installers, you can get solar panels that look great and give your home the energy it needs to keep running.

If you’re on the fence about installing solar panels in your home, just consider these five huge advantages of solar power:

1.They can power your entire home

It used to be that solar panels weren’t efficient enough to power your whole home. They could just be used to offset your power needs. Now, even a home with relatively little roof real estate can be powered entirely by solar panels. In fact, tens of thousands of US homes in remote areas are powered exclusively by solar these days!

Even in your home that’s part of the national power grid, you can use solar to exclusively provide your home’s energy needs. This means that you can not only save money on your monthly electric bill, but that you might also be able to get an extra check from the electric company. To meet ever-increasing demands for power, some electric companies today will actually pay consumers who put more energy into the grid than they use!
