Solar For Homeowners

Solar For Homeowners

The industry here in NJ and NY has seen widespread adoption over the last decade and it is great to see all the homes with solar. There are over 90,000 residential homes with solar in NJ and over 80,000 in NY. About 500,000 homes went solar in the United States in 2017.

Going Solar is perhaps one of the most rewarding home improvement projects available today. Sure, you may feel painting the kitchen over or redecorating the bathroom makes more sense, but those are temporary enhancements. Solar is a one time enhancement that sets up your home for a cheaper cost of living and energy savings. You can then use those savings to improve other areas of your home.

While there are significant environmental benefits to solar, let’s be honest here. 99% of homeowners go solar for the money savings and that’s just fine. Either way the environmental benefits are achieved but the immediate impact to a homeowner is financial gain.

For an honest evaluation of your solar options and straightforward talk, give us a call at 732-SOLAR-NJ. We promise to not waste your time and to give you the straight facts about your solar savings.

For Those Who Need The “Bestest”

In solar, there are different grades of module (panel). A module’s efficiency and brand name are the primary factors that determine which “grade” it falls into.
