Green energy offers many benefits over conventional energy production. Lower equipment costs paired with MA state and federal incentives make solar energy systems more affordable than ever. Many Cape Cod home and business owners are harnessing the sun’s power to lower energy bills, reduce their carbon footprint and increase property value.
One of the most appreciated, obvious advantages of MA solar power is its eco-friendly production. Unlike fossil fuel burning, solar power is emissions-free. Once installed, the panels produce no pollution as they convert the sun’s rays into power or hot water for your building. Because of this, solar power is ideal for home and business owners wishing to safeguard the environment, limit their carbon footprint and control their energy costs. See how our solar power equipment works.
A 2011 study by SBI Energy found that solar power has the best ROI of any renewable energy source. In 2008, Businessweek reported an approximate 15 percent annual return on investment for solar owners. Whether you lease or own your solar system, you’ll begin realizing immediate energy savings—and be freed from rising utility costs! Customers purchasing a solar array from Falmouth Energy will recover their system costs typically within five years, and have a maintenance-free system that produces clean, free electricity for 25 years and beyond.
Solar Renewable Energy Credits (SRECs) compound your return on investment. Utility companies pay you for the right to count your renewable energy as part of their green energy portfolio. Every dollar spent on a solar array could return as much as 300% in combined utility and SREC savings. No other home improvement project generates such income! A solar array increases the value of your home, but in Massachusetts there is no property tax assessment on residential solar arrays. Solar in Massachusetts is an excellent investment.
The sun’s energy is unlimited and constantly renewed. According to the International Association of Certified Home Inspectors, just .02% of incoming sunlight (if properly captured) would sufficiently replace every other current fuel source.
Solar power is ultimately cheaper than the energy you purchase from your utility company. While your system requires an initial investment, this is soon offset by monthly energy savings.
The Cape and Islands, as a region, has among the top 10 highest electricity rates in the country. Our high utility rates, combined with fantastic incentives, make the Cape and Islands one of the hottest places nationwide for solar.
All of the solar panels sold by Falmouth Energy are performance-warrantied for 25 years.
