Why Go Solar?
With the constant increase in the cost of electricity, for many, the appeal of solar panels is increasing too. Solar panels for your home can greatly reduce or even eliminate your electricity bill, not to mention your carbon footprint.
According to energysage.com, the average 20-year savings from solar panels in Massachusetts is over $30,000. Plus, Massachusetts has a policy called net metering, where energy produced by your solar panels that you don’t use can be sent to the grid in exchange for credits on your electric bill. This allows for you to still draw electricity from the grid at times when your panels can’t pull energy from the sun, without necessarily getting charged for it.
