Here are a couple of frequently asked questions about home solar power that we answer for all our customers in Chicago, IL.
1. Does Going Solar Save Me Money?
Many homeowners are unsure how a solar power system works and how it actually saves them money. In short, the answer is yes, going solar does save you money.
Solar panels are installed on the roof of your home, and electricity is produced by them. This offsets your needs to use electricity via your utility company. Utility companies track how much of your electricity is produced by your solar panels and your utility bill is adjusted accordingly.
Over the years you can save a large amount of money that can add up to more than the cost of your solar power system installation itself. This makes installing solar panels a true investment that pays dividends—just remember that this will take years, so you need to make sure you’re going to be in your home for a while to get a return on your investment.
2. Is it a Good Idea to Have a Home Battery?
A common question about going solar is whether or not to have a home battery. Let’s say there is a blackout and you want to make sure you have power to see you through. A home battery is the perfect solution to this problem, allowing you to use your solar power system to fill it over time while avoiding loud generators.
Working with a team of seasoned professionals can help you make decisions like whether you want to buy a home battery or not. And remember, if we can’t save you money installing a solar power system, then you won’t feel any pressure to buy one.
