Why go Solar for Summer


The days are getting longer, the weather is getting warmer and we’re seeing more and more hours of daylight, thanks to summer! There are many benefits to installing solar power to your home, but can be especially beneficial during the Summer months.  If you have been considering solar for your home, there is no better time than to install during the warmer months! Let’s talk about some of the great benefits!

Cut down on your electric bill

When you think about summer, you think about those hot days and outrageous electric bills that come with it.  Electricity prices are usually highest for residential and commercial consumers because it costs more to distribute electricity to them.  During the warmer months, everyone is looking for ways to save while keeping their home cool and comfortable.  This means most homes have their air conditioners running all day and night, which increases the demand for power from the grid causing electricity rates to spike those utility bills (1).  If you sign up for solar, you can lock in a low electricity rate now and you won’t have to sweat over those big bills all summer long!

Collect more energy

Another great reason to install a home solar system during the summer months is to take advantage of the longer days and abundance of sunshine. Solar Panels collect an abundance more of energy from the sun during the summertime, helping to ensure that the system you install not only curbs power costs but can run your entire household!   

Back up your home during an outage

As Certified Tesla Installers in the Northeast, you can rest assured that your home is secure from a power outage with reliable backup power. Powerwall is able to detect a grid outage, disconnect from the grid and bring power back to your home in a fraction of a second. That is over 100x faster than any of your typical generators, and fast enough to keep your appliances running without interruption. You won’t even have to worry about resetting your clocks!(2)

Help the Environment

The absolute best benefit of going solar is helping the environment!  By changing to solar power you will no longer be paying more for polluting the environment and you will be reducing your carbon footprint!  This will help keep the air clean, reduce greenhouse gasses and positively impact the environment now and for future generations to come! It’s no wonder over a million solar systems have been installed in the U.S alone (3)!
