Now is the Time to Go Solar

Now is the Time to Go Solar

It’s starting to look awfully beautiful outside here in the Sacramento area, with the summer weather finally hitting us. It’s no secret that we get plenty of sun in the area. More and more, smart homeowners are harnessing the sun’s energy each year by going solar! Since the implementation of the ITC in 2006, costs associated with solar installs have dropped by more than 73%, which means this technology is more affordable than ever before. 

There’s truly never been a better time than now to move forward with a solar install, and CES is here to help! 


Why Solar?


It’s hard to believe that there was a time in the not so distant past when solar energy was largely considered to be out of reach of the average homeowner. Today, the technology is spreading quickly, and for good reason. Take the average cost of electricity for U.S. residences in 2015, which was 12.7 cents/kWh. The price of electricity is forecasted to rise to 12.9 cents/kWh once 2017 arrives. Electricity prices are rising, yet the cost of implementing solar technology is falling. Naturally, now is the time to make the switch. 

One of the main reasons to make the switch to solar is that it’s not only a sustainable form of energy, it’s renewable as well. This means that as long as the sun keeps rising in the east, homeowners that have gone solar won’t have to worry about the issue of disappearing fossil fuels. Solar panels also require little to no maintenance, are silent in operation and can be installed in a number of different configurations. As technology continues to advance, solar will be even more of a driving force in the production of useable electricity.
