Residential Benefits Of Solar Power

Using solar energy is becoming more important than ever before. There are two kinds of "green" when considering the benefits of a solar energy system: capital green and environmental green.  Managing energy costs is important in every household.  The energy costs to heat your home and water as well as the electricity used in the home continue to rise unabated.   Natural gas and oil, which are burned to heat our businesses, homes and water, are limited in supply. As reserves of gas and oil shrink and demand continues to rise, these fuels become more expensive.  Use of fossil fuels for heating in the home and by utilities to generate electricity contribute to the long term climate problems.  And disasters at nuclear power plants over the last few decades have demonstrated their long term liabilities on the environment.  Solar energy is is our most abundant renewable resource.  Consider this statement by Thomas Edison in 1931:  "I'd put my money on the sun and solar energy. What a source of power! I hope we don't have to wait until oil and coal run out before we tackle that."

Below is a list of the reasons why choosing Solar Energy and GreenSky Energetics will not only save you money but also help save the environment.

Lower Energy Costs
The sun will not send you a monthly bill.

Protection From Future Energy Cost Increases
When you invest in a solar energy system, you lock in your energy costs for the next 30 years!

Safer Water
The legionella bacteria thrives in a water heater's normal residential operating temperature. Multi-collector solar domestic water heaters often reach temperatures above 140 degrees - as recommended by OSHA in preventing the bacteria from growing -  and maintain temps above 158 degrees during late summer when the risk of Legionnaires Disease is prevalent (source CDC).

Immediate Return Through Incentives
Incredibly, as much as a third of your investment will be returned in a short period of time after a residential solar domestic water heater is placed in operation. For more details, please visit the incentives page.
Higher Real Estate Value
The value to your property will increase with the amount of investment. This state law prohibits the local assessor from increasing property value based on addition of solar energy system.

Property Marketability
Highlight your property as having lower utility bills. Your home will be more attractive to potential buyers.

High Rate of Return
Expect the return on solar energy equipment to be higher than equally safe bonds, bills, notes, and money market funds.

Energy Independence
Even doing a portion of your heating or electricity requirements will provide added security. 

Smaller carbon footprint
Every BTU of heat brought into your home by the use of solar heating equipment or KWhr of electricty by a solar PV system represents a certain amount of carbon emissions that will not be released into the atmosphere. Carbon Footprint Calculator

Asset Appreciation
There is a fellow in Brillion Wisconsin that recently used GreenSky to install a solar domestic water heater. Roger is one of those forward looking people who had purchased a solar air heater back in 1983. He had all the paperwork. In 1983 this 2 collector system with a dormer required a $2900 investment.  This same system today would require an over $9000 investment, a more than $6000 gain in value made by this homeowner.  Add that into the rate of return!

  • Lower fossil fuel demand.
  • Save carbon energy for your grandchildren (see our commercial).
  • Cleaner environment for our children.
  • Slow the flow of capital leaving our community to purchase fossil fuels.
  • Laying in the sunlight cast through your window on a cold winter day is a pure thought.
  • Human capital - good feelings generated amongst acquaintances. Express yourself!
  • Societal capital - good feelings generated in society.
  • Self capital - you won't believe the good feelings you will have when you read 150 degree water coming from the solar storage tank.
