Do Solar Panels Really Save You Money?
Absolutely! On average, solar panels will pay for themselves in 7 years or less. They can be used as a completely alternative energy source, or as a way to power just a percentage of your home’s energy needs.
The typical American family spends approximately $1335 per year on electricity. With solar energy, most of your costs are the up-front installation costs. Even part of that can possibly be offset by local, state and national rebate programs or tax credits. Whether or not your solar system will completely offset 100% of your energy costs is dependent upon how accurately you size your system.
