Long Island is one of the most popular areas in New York for solar power. Each day more and more Nassau and Suffolk homeowners are turning to solar to replace or supplement their PSEG electricity.
What are the benefits of installing solar panels? Let’s take a look at the many ways you can reduce monthly energy costs and bring higher comfort and greater peace of mind to your Lindenhurst or Brentwood home with solar installation from Green Team LI, your premier Long Island solar company.
Solar Power Costs You Less
Looking to decrease your energy bills? Can solar panels really save money? Installing solar panels can completely eliminate your monthly Long Island electric bill through a process called “net metering.” With net metering, you can build up credits towards future bills with PSEG for any month in which you produce more kWh than you use.
Higher Home Values
Prospective homebuyers are focusing more and more on energy-efficient houses. According to the DOE, homes that own even an average-sized solar system can increase their value by about $15,000. Additionally, Green Team LI is the only Pearl-certified solar contractor on Long Island, and Pearl-certified homes have been shown to sell for 5% more than those that aren’t.
Rebates and Tax Credits
Worried about the cost of solar panel installation? There are numerous incentives and solar tax rebates that Long Island homeowners can qualify for to significantly reduce the final cost of upgrading your home with solar, sometimes by as much as 50%!
Solar Power Brings You Peace of Mind
Protect Yourself from Rising Utility Rates
Electricity on Long Island is among the most expensive in the northeast, and the EIA predicts utility rates across the country will continue rising in the foreseeable future. With solar installation, you can often partially or completely protect your wallet from electricity rate hikes.
Reduce Your Home’s Carbon Footprint
Unlike traditional ways to generate electricity, solar power is clean energy—it doesn’t require burning fossil fuels. Using solar panels reduces air pollution and water pollution. Plus, since it’s renewable energy, installing solar on your roof will greatly reduce your household’s carbon footprint.
