Now, more than ever, people are aware of their impact on the world around them. And they’re looking for ways to do better for themselves (and maybe change their lives in the process).
As the cost of living rises, so do bills like your hydro. But there’s a way that you can take control, thanks to the power of the almighty sun. Having solar panels installed on the roof of your home comes with a plethora of benefits that make life a little easier, and better for everyone.
You’re probably thinking: “Raincouver couldn’t do solar energy. There’s hardly enough sun to keep a houseplant alive.” Here’s the truth: Vancouver only receives 25% less solar radiance per year than other parts of Canada, so you’ll actually be collecting energy on cloudy days. We’re not the sunless city we make ourselves out to be.
If you need any more convincing, here are four ways that your life changes once you start using solar energy.
You’ll save money
Contrary to what you might think, having home solar panels installed will save you tens of thousands of dollars. In 2011, the average 20-year savings for individuals using solar power systems for the home in the U.S states of New York, California, and Florida, were projected to be over $30,000.
This means you can say goodbye to high costs and a bill that skyrockets during the winter months. You can even get a 0% financing option for your first year of solar panels with a third party – local renewable energy leaders, Stardust Solar, will pay the interest in year one.
You’ll start living green
With the effects of global warming taking their toll, we’re all well aware that the planet needs our help. One of the best ways that you can do good for the environment is through using solar energy, right from your home. It’s efficient and renewable, and 100% clean, unlike coal, gas, and oil. By using solar-powered satellites you can power your home and even supply energy to run your own business.
You’ll help influence your community
Perhaps your friends and family are unsure of whether they could adapt to solar-powered living. By generating solar energy from residential solar panels atop your home, you’ll be a role model for others in your life, promoting a new way of living. Plus, you have the option to install the panels yourself by doing a Stardust Solar training course. After this, you would be certified to install panels for anyone interested in making the switch to green energy.
You’ll earn some independence and security
Chances are you already have a bunch of things on your mind, day-in-day-out. Utilizing solar energy gives you one less thing to worry about with a greater sense of security and independence. If there’s a power outage your home won’t fall into darkness – you’ll still be able to use your solar energy to heat your home and cook. You can rely on sunlight every single day so you’ve got an unlimited source of energy.
There has never been a better time to make the switch to solar power and to celebrate the fact Stardust Solar is knocking 20% off the cost of installations and training. Having a home solar system installed is a long-term investment with BC grid-tie connection.
Plus, you’ll have free support and maintenance for five years. If you refer a friend you’ll make $1,000 in cash, too.
