Is Solar Power Right for Your Home?
Updated: Feb 18, 2020
Every day, more and more homeowners all over the nation are considering solar power for their homes. Renewable energy is certainly the future over fossil fuels like coal and “natural gas.” In fact, as of January 1st, 2020, California mandates that all new homes and apartment buildings must have solar panels installed at construction. If you’re in the Southwest region and you’re considering solar energy, then Sunshine City can help.
Understanding Your Home’s Unique Factors
Living in the desert southwest means that we get more “Sun Hours per Day” than most of the country. When preparing our Free Estimate and Presentation, we look at a few factors, including how much electricity your home uses, what times of year your home uses the most electricity, how much sun exposure your roof gets, and your roof's condition.
We highly recommend having your roof in good shape prior to your solar install. Solar power is compatible with roofs of all types, pitches, and materials. Ground-mounted solar installs are also an option for homeowners with sufficient space on their land.
Breaking Down Utility Costs vs. Solar Costs
You probably have a monthly subscription to El Paso Electric. Just like with Netflix or Amazon Prime, you’re paying a monthly subscription for your electricity. What’s your average electric bill over the calendar year? Did you know that El Paso Electric raises your price for that same electricity every year? Even if you’re careful to conserve energy, your cost of electricity is going up every year.
Now, there’s another option. Solar power allows you to create your own electricity from the sunshine splashing plentifully on your roof all year long. And getting started has never been easier! When you work with Sunshine City, you don’t have to worry about a down payment or startup costs. We also have super low-interest rates available. Your solar payment will be competitive with your current average electric bill, but it won’t go up every year like your electric bill will. As everyone else’s price for electricity continues to rise, your win with solar gets bigger and bigger. Once you pay off your system, you’ll virtually eliminate your electricity costs! Plus, there is a huge IRS Tax Credit available that we will go over with you in our presentation.
