Does switching to solar power really save money in the long run?

For years you may have been told that switching to solar panels to run your electricity will save you money in the long run. Sure it helps protect the planet but is making the switch an excellent investment to help save you from skyrocketing energy cost? 

Right now you pay your electric company forever kilowatt (kWh) of electricity you use. The price varies depending on where you live. In some places, you may only pay around 8 cents per kWh, and in other areas, you could be paying as much as 20 cents or more on your electric bill. 

When you invest in solar energy, you are installing your mini power plant right on the roof of your own home. You will get your electricity from your mini power plant instead of paying hundreds of dollars to your power company. If you are a homeowner who pays more for per (kWh), you will save a significant amount of money overall. 

While you may be tempted to purchase a cheaper solar panel system, you will reap greater rewards in investing in higher quality equipment that will not need replacement and expensive patience to maintain. It is always good to research your options thoroughly before deciding on new solar panels. 

Just like every innovative technology, the price of solar panels has dropped over the years as more people adopt this sustainable way of life. As time goes on solar energy will become an affordable option for many families from all walks of life across the globe.

A wonderful experience with a very tough situation. Roof leak got water into a ceiling light and the electric system in a sunroom. Major panic. Electrician explained everything step by step. Our wiring was the correct wiring so that no damage was done. He also explained the situation that would create danger for us. Thankfully, we didn't have it, but I wanted to know. Did NOT charge unfairly, which is a first for us with electricians. So reliable. So professional and caring. So fair with cost. They are the best!

Installed a connection to charge my Tesla. Replaced dangerous sub-panel, added a second one. All done efficiently. The front office employees were very helpful (called me about a cancellation, so installation was done three weeks earlier). I recommend them highly.
