- tion starts immediately, resulting in immediate savings on electrical costs. After the initial outlay is covered, in 10 – 15 years, the system will provide pure profit.
- Remote Installation – Cabins, sailboats, RV’s, these are great places to see the advantages of solar energy. Solar power is often much more cost effective to establish in remote areas than conventional power infrastructure.
- Environmental Impact – The use of solar energy produces no emissions or noise pollution.
- Home equity – Passive solar layout & landscaping concepts increase the value of a home.
- System Longevity – Solar panels have the capability of collecting energy for 40 plus years and manufacturers typically warranty the systems for 20 to 25 years.
