Solar energy has lots of benefits. The main one is the reduction of the environmental impact, and it’s not the only one! Having a solar system will also make you save a lot of money on electrical bills. But, how much money will I save with solar energy? Here’s the whole explanation to this question.

Things to get into consideration when studying solar energy saving on costs: 

  • The solar systems are paid upfront, but you won’t have to worry again for costly monthly bills.
  • The savings will totally depend of your home electrical usage, but the average families save between $10,000 and $30,000 during their solar system lifetime.
  • Get a quote from your solar company and ask them to assist you in calculating your total energy savings!

How can I know how much money I can save with a solar system?

First thing you should know in order to calculate your savings with a solar system is how much you’re currently spending on electricity usage. You can check it out with your electricity bill. 

Once you’re sure about your usage, you need to choose a system that is able to produce enough energy to meet your power needs. Our Customer’s Services team will be happy to assist you with this. 

You can choose a system that supplies entirely the electrical requirements of your daily routine. But you also have the option to go with a smaller one, in case you prefer it like that.

Will I stop receiving an electricity bill every month?

This is one of the most common misconceptions about having a solar system installed at home. It is thought that once you have gone solar, your electricity bill will go away forever. Well, this is not completely true. 

Even though your solar system produces enough energy to power your home, you will still receive an electrical solar bill from your utility meanwhile your house stays grid-connected. But this doesn’t mean you’ll have to actually pay for it, it’s just a symbolic representation of the service you’re still connected to, even if you’re not currently using it.
