My Energy Geek Lists Benefits of Solar Power
Orlando, Fla. – My Energy Geek, an Orlando area company specializing in renewable energy products and services, has provided a list of the benefits a homeowner may experience by using solar power in a home’s energy system. The benefits listed by My Energy Geek are available in full on the company’s website, which is provided in the contact information below.
The first reason provided for a homeowner to choose solar power is the potential reduction in utility costs. “Having a system that creates solar energy means you use less electricity from your utility company, and that can contribute to lower heating and cooling costs,” My Energy Geek explains. The savings related to heating and cooling costs are of particular significance for homeowners, the company goes on to say, because nearly half of the energy use in the average home in the United States comes from the home’s heating and cooling system.
Another financial benefit of rooftop solar power and other renewable energy equipment is that these systems are often incentivized through tax credits at the federal and state level; the utility company in a given area may also incentivize customers in different ways for installing renewable energy equipment. My Energy Geek reminds potential customers that these tax credits and incentives vary depending on the location of a home.
My Energy Geek also observes that solar power can increase the resale value of a home.
“Surveys conducted by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development,” they say, “have shown that home values rise an average of $20 for every $1 reduction in annual utility bills.”
Other reasons to implement renewable energy technology in a home have to do with the nature of solar power. My Energy Geek notes that sunlight is free, clean, reliable and infinitely renewable. Generating solar power also increases the self-reliance of an individual and their home by reducing the amount of electricity a home requires from their utility company.
