Residential - Benefits

There are may benefits of using the sun's energy as your power source.
Listed below are just a few.
  • Increase the equity in your home by two to three times the cost of the solar system thus increasing resale value
  • We are in troubled financial times, so you can apply what you save on power to paying down your mortgage, pay off credit card debt, or pay for your vacation
  • Pay back is usually around 5-7 years—afterwards, the energy is “free”; this equates to approx. 600% return on investment over the life of the solar system.
  • Produce safe, reliable energy without pollution or contamination
  • Eliminate or greatly reduce your electric bill with Net Metering
  • Sell back your excess power production to SCE in exchange for energy credits which you can use in times of lower production or greater need
  • Protect the environment by producing and using clean renewable energy
  • Help reduce the risks associated with nuclear waste storage sites
  • Help reduce the global warming effects contributed by the emissions of Carbon Dioxide into our atmosphere
  • Reduce pollutants in our environment such as Mercury produced from coal burning power plants
  • Reduce the need for SCE to build new power plants and increase costs to consumers

Many scientists tie warming temperatures to rising emissions of certain gases like CO2. While essential to survival, CO2 has seen a spike as fossil fuels are burned by cars and factories, such as power plants, leading to concerns that it and other gases are exacerbating the greenhouse effect that keeps Earth inhabitable.

For every 1,000 Watts (1kW) of electricity saved, you eliminate the following;

  • 20 Tons of Carbon Dioxide (CO2),
  • 130 Pounds of Nitric Oxide (NOX),
  • 208 Pounds of Sulfur Dioxide (SO2),
  • 101 Pounds of Mercury (Hg) ,

This is equivalent of:

  • Planting 6 acres of trees
  • Taking 4 cars off the road,
  • Not driving 48,948 miles,
  • Figures over 30 years
Figures are over 30 years.
