If you are considering solar energy for your home, then you’re not alone. Many people are fed up with the high costs of energy and the detrimental effect that burning fossil fuels is having on our environment. The truth is that solar energy can help you to reduce your carbon imprint, and that putting solar capabilities into your housing plans can really help you to lead a more sustainable existence (and a cheaper one).
True, the cost of installing solar panels can be a bit high. But you can always think of solar as an investment in your future, and your children’s future! Besides, solar panels will eventually pay for themselves by way of the energy that you save by going solar.
And it goes without saying that if you are using solar power, you can really make a go of it when it comes to off-the-grid living. You don’t need to live next to or in the service area of a power plant, either.
But living “off grid” doesn’t mean that you don’t have to pay taxes. Thankfully, if you connect to solar power by instaling solar panels, you can qualify for energy credits. Uncle Sam has a number of incentives right now for those who install solar panels. See your tax professional for details.
Remember, although it may cost a bit of cash to get started with solar panels, the energy that you get from them is totally free! And since solar panels do not having any moving parts, they are virtually free of any maintenance. Just install them and enjoy the free solar power that they generate.
