What is a good question about solar energy?
The choice is up to you.
Most homeowners choose to go solar for the electricity bill savings. While this might be the initial attraction of going solar, many do not realize solar also allows you to control your power bill and increase your property value.
In some states like Kansas, North Carolina, Ohio, and others, solar owners can even get paid for excess energy their panels produce. This program is most often called net metering. You can find out about your state’s policies here.
Other non-fiscal related reasons to go solar are the reduction in carbon emissions, helping to create and sustain hundreds of thousands of American jobs, and promoting the future of renewable energy. No matter the answer, it is important to determine why you want to go solar, as it will heavily influence the answers to the rest of the questions listed below.
