The better question is:
Excel Home Solar conducted a survey of Florida homeowners and asked them one simple question: “Why haven’t you gone solar yet?”
Approximately 80% of participants gave a brief pause, thought about it, and then gave a very similar answer along the lines of: “Well, solar just isn’t cost effective in Florida yet”.
We asked a follow up question to the respondents that gave that answer which was: “Why do you think that and/or where did you hear that from?”
Most everyone didn’t have answer because ITS NOT TRUE. In fact it couldn’t be further from the truth.
Solar Energy is without question the greatest investment that any homeowner can make.
For starters, in Florida for every $1 saved on utilities per year, it can increase the value of your home by $2. So for example, if your solar system reduces your annual electric spend by $1,500 then the value of your home may now be worth an extra $3000 from day one!
Second, with the current federal tax credit of 30%, customers can finally take advantage of utilizing the federal government to cover almost 1/3 of the cost!
Lastly and most importantly, at the end of the day we’ve all paid for electricity our entire lives and whether we switch over to solar or not, we’re still going to spend that money each and every month, no matter what, for the rest of our lives.
1 Continue to send our money to the electric company for the rest of our lives and get absolutely NOTHING in return and slowly watch them increase our rates and costs over the next several decades, or...
2 Continue to spend the money that we’re already spending each month, but rather then send it to the electric company for no reason, apply that same money towards your financing on your solar system which actually goes towards paying your system off one day, all the while you’ve increased the value of your most valuable asset which is your home and you’ve shielded yourself from the constant rate increases from the electric company.
We’re all going to spend the money one way or another, it’s just a matter of whether we decide to actually start getting something in return for it, or just keep throwing it away every month when we pay our utility bill. The choice is simple and couldn’t be more clear.
