Because you live the Palm Springs area, and enjoy all of it sunny days, it is hard not to think about going solar as a way to produce energy for your home or business. In Palm Springs, solar energy can help you set up a system to save hundreds of dollars each month in cooling and heating bills. Once your solar energy system is installed and operating, the power it generates is essentially free as it captures the sun’s rays.

With the statistical numbers of global warming on the rise, along with the smog and acid rain constantly occurring along the west coast of California, many of your neighbors are taking the step to improve the environment by solar energy at their home or business. With each system installed in Palm Springs, solar energy is reducing America’s dependence on foreign oil diminishes.

While the upfront cost of installing a “whole house” self-sufficient energy producing system can be high, once installed, it begins returning your investment monies to you immediately. Because the sun’s rays are what generate the energy, the system provides you power at virtually no cost.

With government tax credits and rebates provided to customers installing solar panels in Palm Springs, solar energy costs can be offset. Because the panels are generally guaranteed for 25 years, and many last for more than 50 years, the typical payoff investment is about 10 years long. This gives you 35 to 50 years of a free supply of power to your home or office.

Additionally, installing a whole house energy unit can greatly add to the value of your home. Unlike many other home improvements, such as upgrading your kitchen or bathrooms, Palm Springs solar energy panels installed on the home have been shown to increase the value by twenty dollars for every one dollar reduction in the annual savings of energy. By this logic, if you saved just $1000 each year on your energy bill, you would increase the value of your home by upwards of $20,000.

And because the solar panels are manufactured to last 50 years, there is no depreciation in value, from this investment, as your house gets older. With the ever-increasing rise of the price of electricity, each year the value of your home will increase by the amount saved on your energy bill. By installing a solar panel system in Palm Springs, solar energy you can help the environment, and at the same time lower your energy cost, making this a wise investment decision.
