Around the world, issues are being ordered for millions to stay at home during the Coronavirus (COVID-19) Pandemic. Looking at the United States, “at least 1 in 5 Americans will be under orders to stay home…” according to the New York Times. This includes children who are on lockdown because of nationwide school closures. Because so many have to stay at home, many businesses are forced to close, resulting in the loss of millions of jobs. Ultimately, the economy has suffered a massive blow, and we all feel the effects in one way or another.
Thankfully, there is an incredible way to prepare your home for this economic crisis – solar power.
Here are three awesome benefits of going solar:
Because entire families are at home for all hours of the day, electric bills are beginning to see an unprecedented spike. Solar energy is an effective way to offset these costs. On average, homeowners save 20-30% off of their monthly electric bill by going solar. If, for instance, you received a bill of $300 for the month of April, that number could be $240 or lower, putting an extra $60 into your pocket.
AVOID RATE HIKES
Solar also locks in the price you pay for energy so you can avoid utility company rate hikes. Did you know that utility companies raise their rates by 3-8% on average every year? With solar, you don’t have to be surprised but instead get a rate that is set. Imagine paying $1.07 for a gallon of gas. That’s the price you would pay if you locked it in 20 years ago. That’s what you’re doing when you go solar. You get to lock in a low solar rate no matter how much traditional utility rates go up. The savings can add up to thousands!
Additionally, the sun provides clean energy that won’t pollute like nuclear or coal. Therefore, when going solar you get to protect our climate and our health. ‘Going green’ with the sun’s power has never been more important.
You might be wondering, ‘how do I go solar?’ Traditionally, going solar would require a solar representative to come to your home to talk to you about your energy needs. But with “Social Distancing,” being highly emphasized, many are concerned about having any visitors come to their house. Thankfully, at Sol Power Solutions we have created a unique opportunity to go solar via phone, email, or web conferencing. Many are taking advantage of this “Social Distancing Solar” program and saving money now during these hard times.
At Sol Power Solutions, we are striving to help provide some security to our neighbors when things get bad. Get a FREE QUOTE, and see how much you could save. It is our goal to help you prepare for an economic crisis.
