Why People Are Switching to Solar Power
Solar panels are becoming more popular in places like Huntington Station, where we get our fair share of sunshine. Because the sun's energy is free, it is an attractive option for people looking to reduce their utility bills. Additionally, your solar panels can be configured to produce more energy than you need to run your home, and you can store this energy in a backup battery, enabling you to utilize this energy when it isn't sunny.
The benefits of going solar-powered include:
- Federal tax credits
- State and local rebates
- Energy bills can be reduced significantly or eliminated
- See money-saving benefits immediately
- It increases the resale value of your home
- It is an environmentally friendly source of power
Furthermore, you also have the option to sell excess energy back to your utility company. To take advantage of this, the power company will install a two-way meter at your home. This allows energy to flow in two directions and enables you to send your excess electricity to the power company.
Get the Most Out of Your Solar Panels with Smart Choice Contracting
Did you know that most solar panels will last from 25 to 30 years? Like all home appliances, solar panels do eventually degrade, but even after 25 years, they will continue to produce energy, albeit at a slower rate than they did initially. It is because of their long lifespan that many homeowners in Huntington Station find solar panels attractive.
To get the most out of solar panels, you should:
- Have them inspected annually
- Clear debris from your panels and keep them clean
- Work with a professional solar panel installation expert to ensure proper configuration
- Use your solar panel monitoring system
- Keep up with solar panel maintenance
Another way to get the most out of your solar panels is to have them adjusted throughout the year. As the earth's position to the sun changes throughout the year, the tilt of your solar panels should be adjusted to encourage the maximum production of energy. Our solar panel experts in Huntington Station can help you keep your panels in the appropriate position for the season.
