Fossil fuel is a resource that is continually running out...whereas the Sun is an infinite provider of energy! Your house can be fueled....wait for it....FOREVER! How is that for a resource?

 

2. Government Incentives

A HUGE benefit recent decisions to lift the cap on tax incentive when purchasing solar power systems, as well as extending the 30% credit, makes purchasing a solar system a no-brainer! Throw on top that your state and utilities off incentives / rebates for using an alternative power source as well! Combine the two, and you can easily get 80% of the cost of buying your solar system back.

 

3. A Low Maintenence Cost

Other than the occasional Annual Maintenance by a technician - the overall maintenance of a solay system is little to none! You only need to do the occasional cleaning.

 

4. Dependability and Durability

Most panels provid a 20 to 30 year warrenty, which is a starting sign of how durable a Solar Energy system can be. There are very few, if no moving parts, and if they are kept up, and maintained, they can last you even longer!

7. You Can Generate Profit
