Harness the Awesome Benefits of Solar Panels

Over the last decade, responsible homeowners have become increasingly more concerned with finding alternative ways to use less energy while conserving the way of life they have become accustomed to. For many, solar power has been the solution.

Today's solar panels are very different from the bulky blue squares most homeowners think of when they think of solar panels. Modern panels are thin and capable of being installed in-line with the conformities of any angled roof. Some products are even designed in shingle-format so they fit in seamlessly with any existing roof design.

At Southland Custom Homes, we offer a variety of energy-saving options that can help homeowners achieve their energy conservation goals. If you have been considering having a solar system installed, then here are some benefits you can expect from such a system.

Solar Panels Save You Money

Sure, having a solar system installed can be a costly endeavor. But, it's not as expensive as you might think. Today, solar panels, invertors, and other required equipment cost significantly less than when they first entered the residential market. And with federal tax incentives (through 2016) and local tax breaks, your system will cost even less.

In 2011, it was projected that over a 20-year period, an average home with a solar energy system installed would have a cost-savings of more than $20,000. In sunnier climates, such as in Hawaii, projected savings were almost $65,000! And, depending on how much energy your system generates, you might even be able to sell some back to the utility companies - at a profit!

Solar Panels Produce Energy You Can Rely On

Have you ever gone days without electricity after a storm? With a solar power system, all (or most) of your electricity is produced on-site, so you'll never have to worry about downed wires affecting your home's electricity.

Solar Energy = Security

There's a reason why the U.S. military promotes the use of solar energy - energy that's created independently of the nation's grid offers a heightened sense of security to America's families. If for any reason the nation's electrical grid should be compromised, having solar energy reduces the severity of the loss.

You Will Be Doing Your Part to Help Fight Against Global Warming

Solar panels produce clean energy that doesn't cause global warming pollution. By having a system installed on your home, you'll be reducing your carbon footprint and helping the planet slow the progression of this important concern.

You'll Be Helping Improve the Economy

Solar energy production is one of the country's fastest-growing and most successful job sectors. In fact, money that is invested in solar power creates as many as three times the number of jobs than money invested in natural gas or coal.
