Why Go Solar?


Why Go Solar?

Drastically reduce or even eliminate your electricity bills 

Whether you’re a homeowner, business, or nonprofit, electricity costs can make up a large portion of your monthly expenses. With a solar panel system, you’ll generate free power for your system’s entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don’t produce 100 percent of the energy you consume, solar will reduce your utility bills and you’ll still save a lot of money.

PECO wants to help reduce energy usage for Solarize Delco participants in Delaware County by offering exclusive discounts on Home Energy Assessments.

Protect the environment 

Solar is a great way to reduce your carbon footprint. Buildings are responsible for over a third of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can help to reduce that number. A typical residential solar panel system will eliminate three to four tons of carbon emissions each year—the equivalent of planting over 100 trees annually.  Solar is expected to be a part of the move to carbon-free power to help reduce our reliance on fossil fuel based electricity. 

Increase your property value 

Studies have found that homes equipped with solar energy systems have higher property values and sell more quickly than non-solar homes. Appraisers are increasingly taking solar installations into consideration as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers become more educated about solar, demand for properties equipped with solar panel systems will continue to grow.
