Why Should You Consider Going Solar?

By investing in modern solar power technology, with the purchase of a residential solar panel system from SolarUp, Ontario homeowners are choosing to own their power instead of renting it. In generating power from the sun’s radiation and converting it into electricity or heat for our homes, we may effectively produce a more reliable and environmentally friendly source of energy to power our homes. Thus, reducing the province’s carbon emissions output, while simultaneously contributing toward Canada’s greener energy goals.  

Moreover, in choosing to go solar, Ontario homeowners have the added benefit of reducing electricity costs by lowering their electricity rate, along with increasing the value of their residential home and reducing their carbon emissions. What is more, solar power technology has been made more readily and affordable than ever for Ontario homeowners, with the support and assistance from government funded rebate programs, incentives, or initiatives. Give us a call today and we’ll be sure to answer any of your questions that you might have regarding why you should go solar.

Benefits to Going Solar

1. Save Money on Electricity:

In choosing to go solar, you can lower your electricity rate to a fixed rate from the point of installation onward, compared to the unpredictable rising price of grid electricity. What is more, with Ontario’s Net-Metering program, when you generate more power than is required by your home’s consumption needs, the utility company will credit you for the additional energy generation, which can then be used to further reduce the cost of your electricity bills..

2. Enhance Property Value:

Choosing modern solar technology to power your home, will astronomically increase the overall value of your residential property immediately following the installation of your solar power system. Generally, there are two kinds of value that a solar power system will add to your home: investment value and consumption value.

  1. Investment value – represents the actual monetary value added to your home. Thus, increasing the overall resale price of your home. In fact, solar panels can add up to 3-4% to the value of your home.

  2. Consumption value represents the overall environmental benefits of using an environmentally friendly energy source to power your home. However, the amount of consumption value that a solar panel system can add to your residential home depends on several factors, such as the location of your home, the size of the installation, & the original value of your home before investing in solar power.

3. Reduce Carbon Emissions:

By investing in solar power technology, you can offset/reduce your home’s total coal and gas emissions. In fact, solar alone can offset most of a home’s carbon emissions created within a day. Though, with the additional solar plus battery storage, enables up to a 100% carbon offset.

4. Reliability:

Investing in residential solar power not only protects you from annually rising electricity costs, but it also provides Ontario homeowners with a reliable alternative source of energy that reduces your carbon footprint and dependence on utility grid for electricity production. .

5. Government Rebates:

The Canadian federal government has officially launched a new initiative program to support and encourage its resident’s  investments in new practices of renewable energy, such as modern solar power technology. Federal and state tax benefits are available to homeowners looking to invest and install a residential solar power system to their primary residence.

  1. The Canada Greener Homes Grant Through this initiative, Canadian homeowners are eligible for up to $5,000 to help with the costs of energy-efficient retrofits to their homes. Along with an additional $600 to offset the cost of any home energy evaluations and expert advice, so that they may begin planning their energy-efficient retrofits accordingly.
  2. Canada Greener Homes Loan-The Canadian Government Introduces The “Canada Greener Homes Loan,” Offering 0% Financing (Up To $40,000) To Canadian Homeowners Looking To Upgrade Their Homes’ Energy Efficiency By Installing Solar Panels And Other Energy-Efficient Items.
  3. Home Energy Loan Program (Help)-The Toronto Home Energy Loan Program (Help) Provides Low-Interest Financing to Toronto Homeowners Installing Solar Panel Systems To Reduce Their Hydro Bills

6. Longevity and Minimal Maintenance:

Solar power technology makes for a financially smart investment for Ontario homeowners, as most solar power systems last for up to 20 years or more, and require little to no maintenance. If you choose the experts at SolarUp for the purchase and installation of your residential solar panel system today, we can help you to understand what exactly is required in terms of long term care and reliability maintenance of your system. 

7. Energy Production During Peak Hours:

One of the final advantages to solar power technology is that the energy demand tends to be higher between the hours of 11:00-4:00pm in the evening. Naturally this is the period of time in which electricity costs peak at an all time high. However solar energy just so happens to reach its maximum production capacity during those specific hours. Thus electricity generated during those hours has a higher value than if it were generated at any other time in the day. And so, as a result of the additional electricity input of solar energy during those hours, prices in those time frames could be driven down to a level close to those during dark hours.
