Solar Benefits

Solar Energy provides a range of benefits to homeowners, communities, and the environment. Adding solar panels to your home allows you to offset energy costs, reduce the environmental impact of your home, and help develop energy independence.

Solar panels can help power your home every day of the year – even when it’s cloudy. They can also help you earn tax credits, get rebates, and increase your home value.


Save Money. Save The Planet

Grid Resiliency

Solar + Batteries provide resiliency when the grid has blackouts.

Utility Independence

Going solar and creating your own energy helps you hedge against rising utility costs.

Take Advantage of State & Federal Incentives

There are very impactful state and federal incentives that make going solar easier than ever.

Increase Property Value

Adding renewable energy systems to your home or business will increase the property value by about $20 per $1 in utility savings. This means if your solar PV system helps save $400 in a year, your home value increases by $8,000.

Be Part Of The Future

Solar systems use energy from the sun to create clean, pure power. Traditional electricity is sourced from the burning of fossil fuels like coal and natural gas – which emit harmful gases that cause air pollution and climate change.

Solar energy, by contrast, produces no pollution. In fact, using solar energy can actually improve the environment – it can benefit air quality, reduce water use from energy production, and reduce resource stress.
