5 Things To Know About Solar Energy For Your Home

It seems everyone is looking for some sun these days! Why not take advantage of all that solar energy has to offer? Find out more about the benefits that Super Solar can help you with below:

Let’s get lit

First, what am I investing in? Solar panels create solar power – a renewable energy generated from the sun. When these panels absorb sunlight, it’s converted into electricity that powers anything that uses energy in your home (i.e. HVAC, water heater, appliances, etc.). If your solar system produces more electricity than your home, your excess energy production is sent to your utility company. This will appear as a credit on your next electric bill.

At Super Solar, we want to ensure that every customer achieves whole home efficiency. As a starting point, our experts will walk you through an energy audit of your home. Oftentimes, there are many energy reducing solutions that can be implemented before solar energy.

During this prequalification, our team will inspect ventilation, insulation and any energy “leaks” that may be resolved before installation. The remaining energy consumption will be covered with solar power systems.

Reducing your carbon footprint

The average American household produces 14,920 pounds of carbon dioxide each year. By installing solar panels, you can reduce your carbon footprint by more than 3,000 pounds annually. This clean energy emits no greenhouse gases and is free of pollutants.

Going to need a bigger piggy bank

With Super Solar, your system will typically be sized to save you anywhere from 80 to 90% on your electric bill. Solar energy is a clean energy source that will not only reduce your electrical bills but can also increase the value of your home. A 2015 analysis done by the U.S. Department of Energy’s Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory confirmed home buyers were willing to pay a premium of $15,000 more, on average, for a home with solar panels.

But wait, there’s more

There are some great federal and state incentives for solar panel installation. If you purchase before December 31, 2021, you can save up to 26% with the Federal Solar Investment Tax Credit. To see a full description of solar incentives, visit our Cost of Solar page.

Energy independence

With an infinite and sustainable power source, solar energy is here to stay. Using solar panels allows for a more predictable energy bill, especially when there is a high demand for energy. Additionally, when creating your own energy, a dependence on fossil fuels is reduced.

When you install a solar power system with Super Solar, you will receive access to a 24/7 system monitoring app. This will allow you to track the efficiency of your solar panels and give details on the amount of energy and money saved over time.

In it for the long haul

Once installed, most solar systems last decades. During that time, you can expect panels and equipment to require little maintenance. Don’t worry, Super Solar will still be there.

We are proud to offer a minimum 25-year parts and labor warranty on all of our solar systems and a 15-year workmanship warranty covering roof penetration. Because we are located right here in Tampa, dependability is always available.

At Super Solar, our goal is to build the smallest, most efficient solar system that will meet your needs. Why? Because either way, we want to save you money. Learn more about our free home energy evaluation here.
