Consumer Reports: “Now is a good time to consider solar.”

consumer reports solar articleConsumer Reports just released an excellent article on solar power called “Shedding Light on Solar Power.”

Those who want to wait on the sidelines for further price reductions could be disappointed: The cost of solar panels has started to plateau and, while installation labor and other soft costs continue to fall, the phasing out of state tax incentives and utility rebates and grants has largely offset those savings.

When Consumer Reports says it, people listen! We have seen an increase in interest in solar after the publication of this article. We are happy to provide you with a free quote so you too can take advantage of the incredible savings and benefits of solar as well!

2013, the Berkeley Lab found that a solar power system was worth about $15,000 to home buyers, or about $4 per watt. That’s a significant addition in value[.]… Just remember that solar panels could save you money every month and add value to your home, but owning the system may have the most impact and make your home even more attractive to potential buyers.”

With the increase in environmentally conscious buyers, adding a solar system to a home is also a great option for builders looking to sell an eco-friendly building.

When you purchase a solar system, the study in this article and others show on average you will make your investment back if you were to sell your home.  Ailey Solar has partnered with Admiral’s Bank to offer third-party financing options that we are happy to discuss with you.
