ReVision Energy has been helping homes, businesses, and institutions in Maine, New Hampshire, and Massachusetts switch to clean, renewable, solar power for 20 years. Now, the pace of that transition is accelerating rapidly as product costs have gone down and solar efficiency has gone up.
We've been asked plenty of times, "why go solar?" The goal of this guide is to shine some light (hehe) on the subject and to answer that question in 10 thorough, bite-sized chunks:
Maine, New Hampshire, and Massachusetts’s solar resource is a full 33% greater than Germany, a world leader in solar. And it's not going anywhere.
Knowing the basics of solar electricity and how it is billed to you is the start to learning how anyone can reduce their fossil fuel use with solar energy.
Whether it's generated on your roof or in your town, solar is a local product that generates savings, benefits, and jobs directly impacting your local community.
Even with a big initial investment, going solar reduces your electric bill, saving you money for years to come and keeps you safe from spiking electric costs.
Numerous federal and state incentive programs, as well as financing and loan options, make the transition to solar technology more affordable than ever.
Considering significantly reduced equipment costs and reliable performance, the average return on investment of solar energy ranges from 8% to 12% per year.
Solar is a versatile technology! No matter where you live, there are many ways to go solar, including rooftop, ground mount, and solar farm options.
A lower electric bill is just the beginning. Thanks to continued innovation, solar can be stored in batteries, heat and cool your space, and even power your car.
For New Englanders, nothing is more promising than learning a solar electricity system’s performance rises when the temperature drops. Sun power all winter long!
Arguably the most important reason for going solar: ensuring a livable future for our kids and grandkids. The costs of the climate crisis are real and daunting, and solar is the most promising technology for transitioning to a clean energy economy.
