Top Four Reasons to Switch to Solar Before Summer

There are numerous reasons to switch to solar panels before summer. We are highlighting the top four ones in today’s blog.

  1. Abundance of Sunshine

It should come as no surprise that the top reason to utilize solar panels in the summer is the abundance of sunshine. In the Piedmont Triad, sunshine energizes solar panels 62%  of all the summer hours between sunrise and sunset. Solar panels harness the sunlight and turn it into clean, renewable energy for your home or business. 

  1. Reduce Normally High Energy Costs

If you’ve lived in North Carolina during the summertime, you know it gets hot, especially in July and August. This means every residence and business has their AC units cranked to the max. In turn, that leads to higher energy bills. With solar energy, you utilize the power of all that abundant sunlight in summer to create energy. This helps to lower your power bills.

  1. More Active Households

Between summer vacations from school and trying to avoid the intense heat, many families find themselves home more in the summertime. Of course, more bodies at home means more energy consumption at home. Similarly, businesses tend to find themselves busier, as people are out of school or work and visiting businesses in person more in the summer. Like running the AC more, all these increased uses of electricity increase your energy bills. Solar energy created from the summer sun offsets those extra costs. 

  1. Best Time to Act

If you really want to cut your energy costs, then now is the time to invest in a solar energy system. As with any investment, you will take time to research the technology and contractor. Therefore, now is the time to act in order to have your solar panel system up and running before summer. 

Whether you are interested in a solar panel system for your home or business, these top four reasons to invest in solar now apply.
