How Much Can I Save by Installing Solar Panels on My Roof?

Have you ever taken the time to figure out what your average electricity bill is? If it’s over $100 per month and you have a favorable roof aspect, chances are you’re a good candidate for solar and can save money over what you’re already paying for electricity. The higher your electricity bill tends to be, the larger your potential for savings is. A solar estimate from California Energy Services will help you to get a better idea as to how much you could potentially save from installing solar panels on your roof, and it’s completely free of charge.

Why is California Going Solar?

Granite Bay residents already tend to be forward-thinking people, so it should be no surprise that solar is catching on so heavily here and in other parts of California. The energy savings and “green” aspects associated with solar power are difficult are well known, but many people think getting things off the ground is an exceptionally expensive process. Fortunately, financing for solar panels is easier to get now than ever in the past.

PACE financing through CaliforniaFIRST offers homeowners up to $200,000 in assistance for energy efficiency upgrades, and the installation of solar panels is covered by this option. Because the loan is attached to the home, the homeowner doesn’t have to worry about it following them for years should the house be sold at some point. With this in mind, PACE financing offers a low risk solution to those who are looking to install solar panels.

HERO financing is also offered in Northern California now, and we’ve seen impressive results over the years in Southern California. With up to 25 years in payback terms, there’s no reason why anyone can’t install solar panels on their roof should they have an interest in doing so.

Understanding the Details of Solar Financing

Many people who are familiar with financing options such as PACE and HERO know that assistance is out there, yet they’re often not sure where to start. Indeed, the process of getting involved in either of these programs is actually quite simple, yet it’s not uncommon for people to be confused about the details. California Energy Services can walk you through the entire process and clear up any misunderstandings you may have. We’re happy to answer questions to give you peace of mind and educate you on the finer points of PV solar systems as well, including the benefits that you can expect to see for your home.

The popularity of solar isn’t going to disappear anytime soon, and there’s never been a better time than now to get involved. Contact us today for more information and to set up a solar estimate for your home.
