We all know that there are certain measures we can take to reduce our environmental impact. One of these is relying on clean energy for our own use. But hey, if saving the planet is not a good enough reason, we’ve got a few more for you to consider.
Why go solar in Alberta
1. Reduce your own costs!
That’s right. Save money for your next vacation or for that new electric car. Yes, the installation of a new solar photovoltaic (PV) system has a fairly high upfront cost; it is one of the few major upgrades you can make in your home that provides an instant return.
The minute your solar PV system is hooked up to the grid, you start to see your electricity bill go down. Additionally, we can help you apply for Government rebates to help offset the upfront expense. When we design your system, we will visit your home or business to assess your current and future energy needs to ensure your system will provide for you in years to come.
2. Earn a return
Now that you’ve reduced your costs, you may even see money back through your grid-tied system. How? If you produce more energy than you consume, the excess will be ‘sold’ back to the grid.
So if you are on holidays and not home to use your energy, or if you continuously work on becoming more energy efficient, it is possible to get paid for your energy.
3. Invest in your own equity
Installing a solar PV system is an investment in your current equity – your home. Homes are increasingly becoming more efficient, more sustainable, and more environmentally conscious.
This is a reflection of consumer demand. If consumers are seeking energy saving, cost saving features, new homes will be built with these features.
You have the ability to increase the value and appeal of your home by installing a desirable feature that will provide instant pay-back, and long-term return.
4. Be the champion
That’s right, we went there. We dare you.
Make your neighbors talk. Cause a stir. Be the trend setter. Solar PV is becoming mandatory in other parts of the world, but despite Alberta’s perfect conditions for the technology, many are still unsure about this exciting technology. Being a first adopter in your neighborhood will be sure to get the conversation going, and you can be the home that starts the trend.
