“There’s a lot of uncertainty in the world right now,” Stephen said. “Without going to extremes about it, I think it’s a good idea for families to be somewhat self-reliant – especially where the necessities of life are involved. We’re having more and more extreme winter storms, for example, where it’s not unusual for the power to go down for days – even weeks. When you work from home – when you need your home to be warm, safe, and comfortable, that’s just unacceptable. That’s why we made the decision to have a solar system installed on our home.”
Energy Costs Are Rising. Choosing Solar Means Saving Money.
Massachusetts homeowners join the rest of the nation when they site rising energy costs as a top concern. Paychecks aren’t getting larger just because the bills are going up. Choosing energy independence by going solar eliminates that expense from the household budget.
“I honestly thought the money-saving aspect of solar was being oversold,” Stephen said. “For me, it was the assurance of a safe and reliable power system that appealed. But now that we’ve made the switch, and we’ve lived with our solar system for some time, I have to say it’s been a game changer for our budget.” Tax credits and other incentives may be available for homeowners in your area who want to switch to solar – it’s worth investigating.
Going Solar: Better for the Environment
“We’re going to be in this house for the rest of our lives,” Stephen said. “It’s our Forever home. I plan to have the grandkids playing in this yard someday. Going solar helps make this dream possible because it reduces the amount of fossil fuels being used in our community. Not just this year, but every year going forward for the rest of our lives. It’s one small change, but small changes repeated consistently can help change the world.”
