On this episode of Super Solar Mythbusters, we’re debunking the four most common myths about solar energy. Super Solar is about to shed some “light” on why you should go solar.
Fact: Most people assume that solar panels are a luxury. That couldn’t be further from the truth! Between local and federal financial incentives, falling cost of solar and a slew of financing options, solar is an accessible option for many homeowners. At Super Solar, our team of energy experts will guide you to the most affordable solutions for your home and share expertise on financial incentives that will get you the most bang for your buck.
Myth: Tricky installation
Fact: Installing solar doesn’t have to be complicated! During Super Solar’s free home energy evaluation, our team will first help find and fix any energy “leaks” in your home that could reduce your energy consumption. By eliminating any energy disruptions, we’re able to streamline the installation process to best fit your home’s needs. After a site evaluation, you can expect the next steps to include solar engineering and design, permitting and then installation and interconnection. We are meticulous at Super Solar so you don’t have to be. Though, we do offer a convenient system monitoring app so you can receive real time alerts on your solar system’s production and maintenance.
Myth: Hard for resale
Fact: Concerned that having solar energy could affect your home’s resale? Well, Super Solar is here to tell you it definitely will – in a positive way! Should you ever decide to sell your home, you can expect to receive a higher premium. According to the U.S. Department of Energy’s Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, a recent survey found home buyers were willing to pay a premium of $15,000 more, on average, for a home with solar panels, over a home without. In the meantime, you can rejoice that your rooftop solar will not increase your property taxes. Under the tax code, rooftop solar is considered solar electric property. Because you receive a tax credit, you cannot be charged additional property taxes on any increased home value.
Fact: Most solar systems last for decades! Durable materials and continuous maintenance checks through our 24/7 monitoring app create a sustainable product that will last. We also offer a 25-year parts and labor warranty on all solar systems.
