Solar energy is sustainable, renewable, and plentiful. As the cost of NOT using solar to produce electricity goes up each year, many Americans are increasingly switching to solar. Now, there are over a million solar installations across the country. Below are additional benefits of switching to solar electricity.
Renewable Energy Statistics
Renewable energy now accounts for a third of global power capacity
Sun hours per day
Florida rates in the Top 10 for sunshine with an annual average of 2900 sun hours a year.
Based on 10,400 kilowatt-hours per year which is the national average.
Increase in property value
Average increase in property value is $5,911 for each kilowatt of solar installed.
Financial returns and lower monthly utility bills are major incentives for going solar. The exact savings you will see with solar depends on the following:
- Electricity consumption
- Solar energy system size
- Direct hours of daily sunlight
- Size of roof
- Angle of roof
- Local electricity rates
A solar electric system provides an opportunity for anyone who is looking to reduce monthly utility bills and make a long-term, low-risk clean energy investment.
We live in the Sunshine State.
The power from just one hour’s noontime summer sun in Florida is equal to the state’s entire demand for electricity. It’s time to take advantage of our endless sun.
