Power Your Home With Solar for Lower Utility Bills in the New Year
As you prepare for 2024 and write up your New Year’s resolutions, you’re likely looking for ways to save more money, particularly during the recent recession. One spot to start with is your utilities, which eats up a good portion of your budget. Switching to solar energy is a great way to provide energy for your home without taking a chunk out of your wallet each month.
“The most common pain point for our customers is the ever-growing cost of electricity, and the solution is primarily a solar system, including a home energy storage battery system,” says Kyle Smith, General Manager at Solar Optimum, in a recent Porch.com article titled Lower Your Utility Bills: Tips From the Experts. “Homeowners today are looking to increase their energy independence and not rely so heavily on the utility.”
Capturing energy by photovoltaic (PV) solar modules and converting them into electricity is a great alternative option for powering your home. Often solar energy can offset your home’s usage by up to 100%, with any over-production of electricity being credited back toward your home’s annual usage. When paired with a solar battery system, you can ensure you have enough energy even when a power outage occurs across your neighborhood. Plus, solar energy is a greener alternative so you can feel good about helping the planet.
Solar energy is just the beginning of your journey to a more energy-efficient home. Consider also conducting an energy audit or unplugging devices when not in use. For more ways to reduce your power usage and expert tips on how to lower your utility bills, read the full article online.
