There are few things that can be more stressful to your family than an extended power outage. Even short outages of a couple of hours can create problems and costs to your household. Power outages can rise to the level of a full-fledged crisis. Puerto Rico has dealt with months of power outages as a result of Hurricane Maria. And here on Long Island, many of us were without power in the aftermath of Superstorm Sandy. Modern life without power can be difficult and at GreenLeaf Solar, we’re often asked about whether or not solar panels work during power outages.
There is a solar revolution going on in this country. You may not always see it but the numbers are bearing it out. More and more people are switching to solar power, and that’s benefiting us in a variety of ways. Solar customers are freeing themselves from costly utility bills. They’re also helping reduce their carbon footprint, which helps all of us. There’s another way the growth of solar helps us all, and it’s important in this economy. Solar power creates jobs. It is a growth industry and GreenLeaf wants you to know how solar power is creating jobs.
At Greenleaf Solar, we have a variety of customers who make the switch to solar power for many diverse reasons. Some are looking to save money. Going solar can decrease the amount you pay for electricity. Buying your solar panels through Greenleaf means you won’t be stuck with a lease for solar power that’s difficult to get out of. Having solar panels on your home can make it more appealing to potential buyers as well. But one of the most common reasons we hear about making the switch is because of the environmental benefits of solar energy.
Let’s face it when people hear the phrase, “Going Green,” there’s more of a tendency to think of someone wearing blue jeans rather than somebody wearing a business suit. But more and more, that image is changing because more businesses are going green. Certainly, these businesses want to leave the planet in better shape than when they found it, but going green can actually improve your bottom line.
If you’ve made the decision to go solar, congratulations! You’re going to save money and do your part for the environment. Installing solar panels makes you part of the renewable energy revolution, but you may still have some concerns about how to do it. If you’ve investigated installing solar panels, you’ve probably seen companies weighing in on the benefits of renting versus buying your panels. You may be confused as to which path is the best for you and Greenleaf Solar wants to help.
You’ve probably heard a lot of talk about solar power. You’ve heard it described as an alternative energy source to fossil fuels, you’ve probably heard it described as the energy of the future. You may have heard about solar panels in connection with the environment. It’s likely that you’ve seen solar panels on houses or buildings in your town. But have you stopped and considered who solar power customers are and why they’ve turned to solar power? At Greenleaf Solar, we power our customers’ world and we want to know what powers your world. You might very well find out that it should be solar power.
Winter is one of the most important times of the year for energy production. You want to make sure you’re powered up so you’re not exposed to the elements. It’s also a time when many people worry about their energy bill. Heating costs are expensive and paying the electricity bill on top of that can just be too much. It’s one of the many reasons why people are making the switch to Greenleaf Solar. Installing solar panels at your home or business can make winter more manageable.
When people consider adding solar panels to their home, it’s not unusual to think of the environmental benefits first. Solar panels will certainly reduce your family’s carbon footprint and renewable energy will certainly help save our planet. But invariably the question will turn to cost. At Greenleaf Solar we want our customers to know that our solar panels will save you money on your energy bills but there are other benefits as well.

It’s a question we hear a lot. How does weather affect homes and businesses? Particularly, we often hear from customers who are concerned about cloudy weather impacting their solar panels. At Greenleaf Solar, we understand that issues related to weather are a common concern for new customers, but we want to assure you that the idea that cloudy weather can have a major effect on the energy available to solar panel customers is a myth.
