Think Solar is Too Expensive? Think Again.

Solar has been a growing topic among homeowners over the years - and the stigma surrounding the subject has grown too. If you've been wondering how to power you homewith solar energywithout spending tons of money, keep reading.

"Solar is too expensive, let's wait a few more years for the cost to go down."

The biggest stigma, in my opinion, surrounding residential solar is that it's just too expensive. If your electric bill is 50 bucks a month, then sure, putting solar on your house probably isn't the best financial decision. Why? It'll take a long time to recoup the cost with electric bill savings. But for homeowners that have electric bills that average $150 or more a month all year, Baker Electric Solar can install a solar energy system on your home that will help you start saving money. We have a talented team here at Baker Electric Solar and we want to develop customized solar power installations to meet the specific needs of every customer, but we can't take all the credit for all the money we save our customers.

The truth is, the solar industry is doing great and prices are dropping.With advances in technology and ever-increasing sales of photovoltaic equipment, making the switch to solar is becoming more affordable than ever. Solar manufacturers like First Solar are estimating their production costs to drop dramatically over the next few years. That's great news for the solar industry! A competitive market means prices will continue to dive.

Now I know what you're thinking, "If the cost is dropping every year,I'll just wait a few more years for the price to come down even more." While this is true, solar prices are likely to continue to drop, the cost of fossil fuels and electricity will continue to skyrocket. You can start saving money now, not a few years from now. Think about it, electricity costs in California increase 6 to 7 percent annually. Natural gas prices are on the rise too. The sooner you can break free of dependence on fossil fuels the sooner you'll start saving money. Yes, you may spend less money on a solar system three years from now, but think of all that extra money you'll be spending on your electric bill during that time of waiting. The amount of money you'll save monthly with solar, even before considering the rising cost of electricity, is significant enough to take action now.

Beat the Heat, Avoid Rising Costs, Pay Off Your Solar Over Time
