Going Green with Solar for St. Patrick's Day: You're in Luck with Viridis Energy

When we think of Saint Patrick's Day, the color green often comes to mind. However, why not take a different approach this year and go green in a more sustainable way? As a homeowner in Massachusetts, consider making your house greener by utilizing clean energy sources. Going green is all about living sustainably and reducing our impact on the environment. Read on to discover how to switch to solar power this Saint Patrick's Day and take an important step towards a more eco-friendly lifestyle.

What Does Going Green Mean?

Living a green lifestyle involves using renewable resources like solar power for your home in an environmentally friendly way. Solar energy is one of the cleanest and most sustainable forms of energy because it doesn't produce pollution or require anything else but the Sun to operate. Moreover, installing solar panels is a simple and effective way to significantly reduce or completely eliminate your electricity bill. To adopt a green lifestyle, it's essential to learn how to use these renewable resources efficiently while still providing a comfortable living space for your family.

Why To Consider Going Solar

In recent times, solar energy has become increasingly popular because of its cost-saving advantages and environmental benefits. The cost of solar panel systems has significantly decreased in the past few years, making it more affordable for homeowners to adopt this sustainable energy source than ever before. Additionally, various tax incentives are available for those who switch to solar power which is makes going solar a no-brainer! 

Here are just some of the reasons why you should consider going solar this St. Patricks Day:

Eliminate Electric Bills

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 lifespan. Even if you don’t produce 100 percent of the energy you consume, solar still reduces your utility bills, meaning you’ll save a lot of money.

Avoid Rising Energy Costs

Every year, electricity prices continue to increase throughout the country. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can lock-in the price you pay for electricity today in order to protect against future increases in electricity costs.

Increased Home Value

Homes with solar sell for more than homes without. And when you consider that solar allows you to reduce or eliminate electricity bills, it’s easy to understand why: wouldn’t you rather live somewhere without monthly utility bills?

High Return on Investment

At the end of the day, solar is one of the best investments you can make. The average American solar purchaser sees a return on their investment (ROI) of 20 percent or more, with most solar panel systems paying for themselves multiple times over the course of their decades-long lifetime. Try getting that ROI from stocks!

Energy Independence

The adoption of solar energy is one way to achieve energy independence. When a homeowner decides to go solar, they take energy generation into their own hands becoming their own power provider. This not only reduces costs, it provides electricity security to a business, and contributes to a greener environment.

Federal Tax Credit

If you install solar energy equipment in your residence any time this year through the end of 2032, you are entitled to a nonrefundable credit off your federal income taxes, equal to 30 percent of eligible expenses. There’s no dollar limit on those expenses; you’re entitled to that 30 percent tax break whether you spend $20,000 or more than $100,000 on costs associated with a residential solar system. This is an incredible discount!

Reduce Carbon Footprint

By installing solar, you can reduce your own personal environmental footprint. When you put a solar panel system on your property, you can avoid purchasing carbon-emitting electricity from the grid, pulling directly from your solar panels instead. And even when you’re not using the solar electricity directly, you’re offsetting the need for carbon-emitting generation by putting your solar energy onto the grid. 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.

Electric Vehicles (EVs)

EV charging is often more affordable than filling up a gas tank—especially when gas prices are skyrocketing. Driving an EV is also better for the environment since electric cars don’t run on fossil fuels, like gas or diesel, and they pollute less than traditional cars. Solar panels generate free electricity using energy from the sun. When you install solar panels at your home, you can use them to charge your electric car for free—either using an at-home EV charger or by plugging into a standard household outlet.

Ditch the Generator for Home Battery Backup

For true peace of mind during a power outage, you can't beat a solar battery system. There is nothing quite like the feeling of being the only house on the block with the lights on after the grid goes down. With a solar battery, the transition from grid to battery backup power is seamless and reassuring. As long as you have enough battery capacity, you could keep running through a very long power outage.

Zero-Down Financing

Installing solar at your home or business has significant financial benefits. In many cases, you can choose a zero down solar financing option and install your system without paying any money up front, leading to instant savings.

How Can I Switch To Solar Power?

Switching to solar power has become easier than ever thanks to advancements in technology and installation techniques. Once all the necessary paperwork has been filed with your Utility and permits are approved, Viridis Energy can install a new solar panel system in just a day with minimal disruption or damage to your property.
