Here in Baja we get an average of 350 days of sunshine a year which means we live in the perfect place to invest in a solar system.
There are many more reasons why more and more people are choosing to install Solar systems… But here are the top 3 reasons;
1- Save Money!
The average American household uses 920 kWh per month. Here in Mexico on average we use less, but in the summer we can easily surpass that number by running multiple Air Conditioners. By properly sizing your solar system you can bank credit in the winter and then use it up in the summer. A properly chosen and properly priced system can save enough on your CFE bill to pay itself off in 3-5 years!
2- Make a smart investment and increase your home’s value
Studies performed by the Lawrence Berkley National Laboratory have shown that adding a solar system increases a home’s resale value by an average of $5.50 per watt, and depending on location, can be as high as $6.40/watt.
- A 3.1kW system can add $17,000 to your home’s value
- Studies have also shown that homes with solar sell 15% faster than homes without solar.
3- Decrease your carbon footprint & protect the earth
Solar reduces your carbon footprint as well. The average American household generates 7.4 tons of carbon dioxide per year through electrical use. Carbon dioxide has been proven to cause global warming, which is wreaking havoc on our Earth—causing glaciers to melt, shorelines to erode and animals to be endangered. Results of this are being seen here in Baja Sur.
A typical residential solar panel system will eliminate 3-4 tons of carbon emissions each year—roughly the equivalent of planting over 100 trees every year.
This is just three of the biggest reasons, but as mentioned above, there are many reasons why going solar makes sense.
