And here we are – in the 3rd and final installment of the Top 9 reasons why you should embrace solar (especially if you live in San Diego).
So far, we’ve covered everything from the environment to national security to the economy. We started off strong, hoping that our earlier reasons would be enough to sway you. But if you’ve made it this far and still haven’t booked a free solar consultation with us (or a competitor), perhaps you need just a little more convincing.
Here are 3 more reasons why an increasing number of San Diego businesses and homeowners are exploring their solar options.
7. Solar Panels Boost Property Values
According to a report by the US Department of Energy, each additional $1 in annual electricity savings from your solar installation increases the property value of your home by roughly $20.
2 things to keep in mind:
- In San Diego, where average solar energy savings exceed $1,600 a year, we’re talking about property value increases of more than $33,000
- Whenever utility rates increase (as they recently did in San Diego), your solar energy savings also increase, pushing your property’s value even higher
Installing solar panels can help property values in other, less obvious ways.
For example, prolonged UV radiation is one of the biggest problems that standard roofs face. But by installing solar, you actually make your roof (and home) more durable. This means fewer repairs – and a much better preserved home when it comes time to sell.
8. San Diego’s Solar Incentives Won’t Be Around Forever
This is not so much a reason to go solar – as it is a reason to go solar ASAP.
There are a number of local, state, and federal incentives designed to make solar more affordable for homeowners and businesses throughout the greater San Diego area. When you combine all of these rebates and tax credits together, solar isn’t just affordable – it’s a steal.
But here’s the thing. These incentives won’t be around forever. They were designed to jumpstart San Diego’s solar industry – and have performed remarkably well. But as more residents install solar panels, these generous incentives will get scaled back.
In other words, NOW is the time to act.
Which brings us to our last and final reason for going solar in San Diego today.
9. Solar Proves That Some Things in Life Really Are Free
They say that there’s no such thing as a free lunch. At Sunline Energy, we couldn’t disagree more.
