Are you curious about the many benefits of solar energy for your home on Long Island? While there are countless reasons to have a solar system installed, there are a few that consistently stand out and cause people to finally make the switch to solar power.
Solar Energy on Long Island: The Economical Choice
While there is a vast array of rationales as to why people choose to go solar, one of the key elements always comes back to economical reasons. The biggest benefit, besides the positive environmental impact of solar, is that the energy produced by your photovoltaic (PV) solar panels can substitute the energy already provided by PSE&G. In fact, when you buy and own your solar panels from GreenLeaf Solar, you have the opportunity to eliminate your monthly electric bill completely which makes for a sound investment for you and your family.
Solar Power Can Make the Electric Company Pay You
In some cases, when you store extra solar energy (Renewable Energy Credits or RECs) through your new solar system, PSE&G will purchase the excess power your system produces at a premium. Imagine not only eliminating your own electric bill but additionally receiving a check for your extra solar energy. PSE&G will actually pay you!
Consistent Power Even During Outages
Because solar energy can be independent of the power grid that everyone depends on, you can have the lights on even when the power goes out for everybody else. Providing energy during times of emergency or crisis can be an invaluable asset, especially after the long-lasting effects that Long Island has seen after the most recent natural disasters. Electricity controls most facets of life that we often take for granted like the lights, phones, even your hot water so don’t be caught without it and make the switch to solar.
Doing your Part for the Environment
While it might be obvious, it’s valuable to note that solar energy is one of the cleanest ways to produce energy and minimize our carbon footprint on the world. Energy is captured through the PV cells in your solar panels and is channeled into your home directly. There are no byproducts produced and pollution levels are nonexistent from solar energy production. If you’re concerned about our impact on the environment, solar energy is the answer to producing clean, renewable energy right in your own home.
