Own Your Own Solar Power So You Benefit the Most
In our previous article, we talked about how to install a solar system that let’s the California and Federal tax credits stay with you instead of going to someone else. Now, let’s talk about the best reasons why you should your own solar power system, such as from Valley Solar Experts.
When you install a Valley Solar Experts solar power system, you pay for it with an ordinary home improvement loan. “The Other Guys” will want you to sign a complicated lease that might contain 50 pages of legalese. You are not a lawyer, we are not lawyers. That kind of paperwork doesn’t benefit either us or you so we don’t do it that way.
With our home improvement loans, you own your own solar power system and the resulting electricity in the same way that you already own your house or building. And every day, when the sun comes out, the electricity it generates is yours to use as you see fit.
Use your electricity to run appliances in your house, cool the house with the air conditioner, or whatever you want. It is yours and you don’t have to pay anyone for it. If you are not using it, you can even run your meter backwards and get a full credit. Your electric bill will actually go down when you generate more electricity with your solar panel system than you are using.
But if you were to lease your system from “The Other Guys”, it would be a different, not-so-happy story.
First, the electricity you generate would not be free to you, even though it was created right on your roof. This is because that 50 pages of legalese in the lease says that you have to pay a certain amount for the electricity that you use. Maybe less than what the utility charges you for that much electricity, but still something. You pay for it.
Not only will you pay for the electricity under a lease, but the amount is going to go up every year by a certain percentage. So you never come out fully ahead.
When you lease your system, there is even more bad news. If the panels generate more electricity than you are using, when you own your own solar power, you get the credit towards the utility bill. But if you lease the system, the credit goes to your installer. Maybe some, but not all of it, is used to reduce your bill. But mostly the credit is used to reward the investors in the solar company, not to help you directly.
So let’s summarize and decide which is better for you: When you own your own solar power, installed by Valley Solar Experts, the electricity that is generated is yours for free. Pay your loan, and no extra payments for electricity. Better yet, when you have generated more than you use at any given time, your meter runs backwards, and you get a credit on your utility bill.
