When a homeowner chooses to go solar, there are a lot of things to consider. By going solar, you can save money, take advantage of the financial incentives, and be more energy independent. However, there are many common misconceptions or myths homeowners have about the solar industry that pause their decision to go green. Green Panda Energy debunks these myths below:
Myth: Solar will take too long to pay off for it to make sense.
The payback period is far less than you would think – in many cases only 3-8 years. Our experts are happy to help access all of your specific factors to determine your return on your solar investment.
Myth: Adding solar will not add valueto my home and will also increase my property taxes.
Solar is a sought after feature when a buyer is considering a new home and tends to sell for about 4.1% more! When you improve your property by making it more energy-efficient, you not only lower your utility bills but also increase the value of your home.
Myth: I have to wait until I replace my roof before I can go solar.
This does not mean you need to wait to go solar. In fact, many people are not aware that you can do this at the same time you install your solar panels. This helps you save time and allows you to go green sooner.
Myth: Solar is too expensive.
It’s more affordable than ever before and now with several different finance options and tax incentives. For those who are interested in going solar, Green Panda Energy will help you decide on the best solar panel configuration to adequately meet your electricity needs and overall budget.
