“Going solar” has become quite the catchphrase in recent years, and for good reason. There have been a number of advancements made in order to reduce energy usage and costs for homeowners throughout the Pacific Northwest, and this is one of them. You may not think it’s the right option for homes in our area, but on the contrary, solar energy is a great choice for PNW households!
Read on as we uncover some of the benefits of going solar.
Solar Energy Means Clean Energy
There’s an energy source that is infinitely renewable—the sun! You may be wondering if solar energy can really be used in an area like Bellingham or one of the surrounding communities. The answer is yes. With professional solar panel installation and the right backup system to store extra energy, solar panels will benefit customers all throughout Northwest Washington.
Additionally, because you don’t have to rely on any fossil fuels, you don’t have to worry about the effect that your home appliances are having on the environment. Solar energy is eco-friendly!
Solar Panels are a Safe Investment
The initial cost of solar panel installation can be off-putting to the average homeowner. However, in return for this investment, you will see huge savings on your household electrical energy bills each month.
In just a few short years, using your solar energy system will result in hundreds of dollars in savings. Plus, since solar panels last for decades, you’ll be able to enjoy the energy savings throughout your homeownership, without the worry of replacing panels.
Local and State Incentives
Did you know that Puget Sound Energy supports net-metering? This is when excess electricity that is produced is returned to the electrical grid as a credit, which can be used later by your household. This is one of just a few state and local incentives available to homeowners throughout Bellingham and beyond.
