Save the Environment (and Your Money) With Solar Panel Installations

How to get a solar quote

Americans are increasingly turning towards renewable energy. Recent changes in the climate have lead scientists to believe that our consumption of petroleum, natural gas, coal, and other non-renewable sources of energy is contributing to global warming. The recent drought in California is a startling indicator of how volatile our global climate is becoming. For these reasons and more, Americans are slowly but surely leaning toward environmentally-friendly forms of energy such as hydroelectric power, wind power, and solar power.

The latter is especially on the rise. The solar power industry in the United States makes an estimate revenue of $492 million every year. The industry grew more than 50% since 2011, adding 50,000 jobs in the process. One sector of the industry, residential solar panels, is doing quite well, growing at an annual rate of 14% as more than 2,200 businesses provide solar installation services for homeowners across the country. Moreover, the price of solar services and panels has gone down by nearly 80% since 2009, giving even more Americans the opportunity to purchase solar panels. Energy experts predict that the prices will continue to drop as the panels become more popular (and even necessary).

Why choose solar power? As seasoned solar installers will tell you, solar panels provide clean, efficient, and most of all, cheap electricity for your household. Owners of solar installations stand to see their electricity bills fall dramatically as solar panels provide around-the-clock energy using the power of the sun. Though the initial panel and installation prices are pricey, consider it to be a long-term investment. What is wonderful about these panels is that they require minimal maintenance after installation, meaning owners do not have to spend much on them after they’re set. And, of course, they are great for the environment as they do not consume anything — from Earth.
