There are so many different reasons why people go solar. Some families like to take control of their energy future and be protected from volatile utility prices. Others don’t like paying so much to the utility companies each month with nothing to show for it. Because a solar system will pay for itself multiple times during its lifetime, going solar can be one of the best investments a homeowner will ever make.
In addition to the financial benefits, some people harvest the sun because it enables them to harvest a free and abundant source of energy instead of using fossil fuels, which are quite costly and have a limited supply. Others go solar because harvesting the sun is truly green, benefiting the earth’s natural climate, air, and water quality.
