Benefits Of Solar
Protect Against Rising Utility Rates
Kauai’s homes and businesses have seen electricity rates spike over the last few years. This is particularly due to our dependence on fossil fuel. 92% of our electricity is generated from burning diesel oil. When fuel costs go up so does our electricity bill. Installing your own solar power can reduce or eliminate your exposure to rising electricity rates.
Reduce Monthly Costs
A solar power system can reduce or eliminate your electric bill. The cost/unit of energy you are currently paying is already higher than what you would be paying with solar. As rates increase this difference will only increase, which will result in further savings over the life of the system.
Take Advantage of Government Rebates & Tax Credits
Designed to encourage individuals and businesses to generate their own solar power, these programs can pay for up to 55% of the total system cost for homes and up to 88% for businesses! These programs include direct rebates, tax credits, and other financial incentives.
Good Return On Investment (ROI)
Government incentives combined with recent decreases in solar equipment prices, make the investment in solar power a good financial decision for individuals and business owners. An investment in solar power can generate quick payback as well as long-term savings. Typical returns are up to 20% for homes and 50% for business!
Long Term Reliability & Low Maintenance Costs
Photovoltaic Cells were originally developed for use in space, where repair is extremely expensive, if not impossible. Solar still powers nearly every satellite circling the earth because it operates reliably for long periods of time with virtually no maintenance. Once installed, the solar power system requires little or no maintenance (especially if no batteries are used), and will provide electricity cleanly and quietly for 25 to 40 years. Our solar panels carry up to a 25-year manufacturer warranty on their production.
Become A “Green” Community Member
Generating electricity from solar energy means less consumption of fossil fuels thereby reducing pollution and greenhouse gas emission. By switching to solar power you will be doing your part to combat global warming, and reduce our island’s dependence of fossil fuel. Being a green business can not only reduce your operating costs but can also be a great source of public relations and a good marketing tool. There are a growing number of consumers who make their buying decisions based on the perceived environmental responsibility of the company they are dealing with.
