4 Reasons to Switch to Solar Electricity

Are you trying to be more energy-conscious while saving money on your electricity bills? Here are 4 benefits of investing in solar panel installations. 

We can conserve energy in many ways and at many different levels of energy consumption. At home, it could be as simple as turning off the lights and unplugging computers while at the commercial level, updating older buildings with more efficient technology can help reduce the amounts of electricity consumption.

Conserving energy is important because:

  • it helps lessen pollution
  • it reduces greenhouse gas emissions
  • it can help you save money in the long-run
  • it burns fewer fossil fuels, conserving these crucial and non-renewable resources

4 Benefits of Installing Solar Power in Your Home

Many Canadians are aware that solar is a great home efficiency upgrade and are eager to reduce their carbon footprint while also improving property value. Whether your motivations for going solar are economic, environmental, or personal, our Calgary electricians provide comprehensive lighting services to make the transition easier.

Here are the top 4 reasons why solar energy is good for your home and more popular than ever in Canada:

1. It Dramatically Reduces The Cost Of Your Energy Bill

Whether you’re a homeowner or have your own business, you know that electricity costs make up a large portion of your monthly expenses. Even if you don’t produce 100 percent of the energy you consume, solar will reduce your utility bills and you’ll still save a lot of money.

The exact savings you’ll see with solar depends on the following factors:

  • electricity consumption
  • size or angle of the roof
  • solar energy system size
  • direct hours of daily sunlight

Whatever the case, hiring a professional electrician to help you install solar panels provides a great opportunity for you to lower your monthly utility bills and make a long-term, low-risk investment.

We can help install solar panels in your home or business today.

2. It Increases The Value of Your Home

Solar panels are viewed as upgrades, like a renovated kitchen or a finished basement, so purchasing a solar energy system will likely increase your home’s value. In fact, some studies show that it can increase the value of a home by $15,000!

Although market factors such as electricity rates and system size may impact the premium, solar homes do sell more than homes without them.


3. It Allows You To Protect the Environment

Investing in solar panels is a great way to reduce your carbon footprint. Buildings in Canada are responsible for approximately 40% of all carbon emissions and going solar can significantly decrease this figure.

Did you know? A typical residential solar panel system will eliminate three to four tons of carbon emissions every year - the equivalent of planting over 100 trees annually.


4. It Demonstrates Your Commitment to Sustainability

Sustainability and corporate social responsibilities are important components of an organization’s culture and values. They also produce bottom-line results. Increasingly, consumers and communities are recognizing and rewarding businesses that choose to operate responsibly.

Interesting Fact: Many businesses are finding that ‘green’ credentials are a powerful driver of consumer purchasing decisions, creating goodwill and improving business results.
