Are Solar Panels Really Worth It?

Solar panels have been commercially available to the public for more than half a century, but they have been impractical and overly costly for most of that time. Even if you liked the idea of using solar energy, it just didn't make sense to sink so much money into an expensive system that would fail after the sun went down.
Now, however, it's a different story. Solar equipment is less expensive, much more efficient, and more pleasing to look at. Simply Solar California is one of the top solar companies in Sonoma County, and our experience tells us there's never been a better time to look into installing a solar system for your home.
Here are just a few of the benefits you can expect to reap:

  • Good Cost-Benefit Ratio Solar is still relatively expensive to install. However, tax rebates and other government incentives help to defray some of the upfront costs; and once solar systems are in place, they become an investment. They can they help you meet your energy needs very cheaply, and you can also sell any excess power back to the grid for a small profit.
  • Reduced MaintenanceNatural gas and oil-powered energy sources require a lot of costly maintenance to keep working efficiently and safely. Solar systems, on the other hand, need little oversight as most of the infrastructure is static, making it less prone to wear and tear.
  • Environmentally FriendlyAdmittedly, this is not a financial argument but a humanistic one. Solar power is renewable – at least until the sun stops shining – and helps you do your part to combat large-scale problems like global warming and pollution.
