It’s often been said that patience is a virtue, and while this is generally true in most circumstances, patience isn’t necessarily “virtuous” when you’re considering whether or not to go solar. In fact, hemming and hawing about the idea might cost you in the long run.
If you’re a Rochester area homeowner that’s waiting for a better time to go solar, here are a few reasons why there’s no time like the present to make the switch:
Meaningful cost and energy savings
This is probably the most obvious and pressing reason to go solar. Why wait to start saving money while reducing your environmental impact when you can start saving in the near future? If you wait for a “better” time to go solar, you’re stuck paying your monthly electric bill in the meantime. And with the price of electric rates on the rise, in addition to random rate hikes, you could easily be paying more than you’d like to.
Less generous federal incentives and tax credits
Did you know that there are significant federal incentives, tax credits, and rebates to encourage homeowners to go solar? These initiatives can dramatically reduce your out of pocket cost to go solar, but they won’t be around forever. If you’re not sure which federal incentives, tax credits, or rebates you qualify for, don’t worry. Our team of solar advisors take the guesswork out of finding opportunities to save.
Solar tech is at its peak
Unlike smartphones that quickly depreciate within a short period of time, solar technology is much slower to become outdated and obsolete. Today’s solar panels are extremely efficient and can easily continue to produce clean energy for a minimum of 25 years or more. In other words, solar technology is in its prime!
Sure, the decision to go solar is a big one, but it’s one that’s fairly easy given the major financial and environmental benefits.
