(In more way than one)
An investment that makes sense.
Did you know that solar energy is our most abundant form of energy? Here's why you'll want to harvest this renewable power.
Solar + You
It's the age-old question: What's in it for me? There's no shame in asking because it gives us the chance to brag about solar's bountiful benefits.
eliminate your Electricity bills
Your money is better spent on what makes you happy. Solar saves $1,500 a year on average--real return on your investment.
Protect against rising energy costs
When depending on current fossil-based systems, you can expect an increase of 2.8% in your energy bill per year. Avoid those increases with a personal solar array.
Increase your property's value
The National Renewable Energy Laboratory cites a study in the Appraisal Journal, which shows that home value increases $20 for every $1 reduction in annual utility bills. In other words, a solar energy system that saves $400 per year would add a value of $8,000 to your home.
Solar + Earth
We're at a pivotal point in our climate crisis. Investing in green energy doesn't only benefit your financial situation but contributes towards moving to a greener future.
Increase U.S. Energy inDependence
The United States relies on other countries for approximately 25% of its power. Solar provides power without having to outsource.
Reduce carbon emissions and other toxic pollutants
Most of the electricity generated in the U.S. comes from fossil fuels like coal and natural gas. Extracting and using fossil fuels is expensive and harmful to the environment.
Leave fossil fuels in the ground (where they belong)
Fossil fuel consumption is a main contributor to climate change, global warming, and other environmental issues. Choosing solar gets us one step closer to eliminating fossil fuels that create climate change and cause chaos.
First, light from the sun is absorbed daily by solar cells.
Next, light creates energy through a semiconductor.
Semiconductors are used to transfer electricity from a conducting material to a nonconducting material.
Then, sunlight provides the energy that is actively gathered and stored in a battery to power your electrical system.
Finally, the electricity is either used by the homeowner, stored in a battery, or sold back to the utility company.
Common Solar Questions
How much does a solar installation cost?
Will my solar system still generate electricity when it’s cloudy?
Of course! Solar energy is produced any time solar panels are exposed to light--rain or shine--because photovoltaic panels can use direct or indirect sunlight to generate power. Sunny days will generate power more effectively, but even on cloudy days power will still be produced.
How do I know if solar is right for me?
Will solar panels generate enough electricity to power my entire home or business?
What solar panel incentives are available?
What are your warranties?
Our adjustable ground mount solar, made in Michigan with US steel, is a perfect solar solution. Watch and learn how simple it is to tilt the panels to match the changing summer and winter suns.
When you think of home solar, this is what probably comes to mind. Afforable and reliable, these set-ups are perfect for homes with plenty of south-facing sun exposure.
