Eight reasons to install a solar energy system on your property

Cost Savings

Solar energy can significantly reduce or even eliminate electricity bills. Once you’ve installed solar panels, you can generate your own electricity, reducing your reliance on the grid and all the costs that come with it. Over time, these savings can be substantial!

Renewable Energy

Solar power is a renewable energy source that harnesses the sun’s energy. Unlike fossil fuels, solar energy production does not generate greenhouse gas emissions, contributing to a cleaner and more sustainable environment. By installing solar panels, you can decrease your carbon footprint and promote a greener future.

Energy Independence

Solar panels give property owners energy independence. By generating your own electricity, you are less reliant on traditional energy sources and less vulnerable to price fluctuations and supply disruptions. Solar panels provide peace of mind and stability, especially during power outages.

Long-term Investment:

Installing solar panels is a smart long-term investment. Solar energy systems often pay for themselves through savings on electricity costs – often in 5-8 years. Additionally, solar panel installations can increase the value of your property, making it more attractive to potential buyers.

Government Incentives and Tax Benefits

There has never been more financial help available to pay for your solar panels. At both the federal and local levels, there are incentives and tax benefits to encourage the adoption of solar energy. These incentives can include grants, tax credits and favourable financing options. At Otter Energy, we are experts at helping our clients get the funding they need for their solar energy projects!

Durability and Low Maintenance:

Solar panels are, by design, durable and low maintenance. They are built to withstand intense weather conditions, including hail, wind, and snow. Regular cleaning and occasional inspections are generally all that’s needed to ensure their optimal performance.

Energy Efficiency and Grid Stability:

Solar installations help reduce strain on the electrical grid during peak demand periods. By generating electricity locally, solar panels can alleviate stress on the grid, enhancing its overall stability and efficiency.

Community and Environmental Impact

Installing solar panels demonstrates your commitment to sustainable living and environmental stewardship. It can inspire others in your community to consider renewable energy sources and promote a cleaner and healthier environment for all.
