All things considered, solar energy is still a relatively new concept to hundreds of thousands of American homeowners. With anything that is cutting edge and breaks the norm, there is going to be a variety of myths surrounding the topic thanks to the endless amounts of misinformation available out there. Homeowner’s are still sceptical on the benefits of solar energy, many are receptive to believing false information as they do their research to understand the topic better. The team at ESD Solar has decided to compile a small list of these fraudulent myths and do our part to shine a light on the benefits of solar energy for home and business owners!
Solar Costs Too Much
Yes, it is true that there is an upfront installation cost to getting your house outfitted with solar panels. However, it is also true that there are multiple national and local government rebates available to help you with this upfront investment! The Federal Solar Tax credit is a federal government funded program aimed at encouraging residential solar installations across the country. Depending on your situation, you could receive a tax credit based on the amount you spent on your solar installation!
Solar Doesn’t Provide Significant Monthly Savings
This myth is extremely damaging and could not be further from the truth. Solar panels help thousands of homeowners cut their electricity bills by 70-80% on average. Depending on your specific location and solar panel setup, you may be able to completely eliminate this cost from your monthly bills! Some solar panel systems actually generate excess electricity, allow you to sell energy back to your utility company for even more savings!
