Jennifer meets with homeowners and talks about the benefits and truths of going solar. Many people initially think you have to pay for the panels, but you don't have to. There are two options:
- If you want to own the panels, take out a 10-year solar loan.
- If you don't want to own the panels, take out a free 20-year lease and simply buy the power off of them. Get a free quote!
SolarCity is by far the largest residential solar installer across the country, and did you know that Elon Musk is the Chairman of the Board? I'll also have you know that 80-90% of homeowners lease their solar systems so that they don't have to pay any upfront costs.
Once the system gets installed the only responsibility for the homeowner is to pay their new electric bill to SolarCity, which is typically 30-50% less than an average bill.
You will stay connected to the grid, but it will serve as your backup power source since you may not be able to produce 100% of the power your home needs with just solar. For example, let's say your monthly electrical usage is 800 kWh. Whatever your solar panels aren't able to generate, the difference comes from the grid.
This sounds like a no-brainer, doesn't it? Save energy and money.
When you install a solar system it eliminates the cost of having to deliver electricity to your home the traditional way (from a power plant that can be dozens of miles away), that the utility company charges you for.
Not only are solar systems beneficial to your wallet, but they're also a win for lowering your carbon footprint. Last year the U.S. recorded the hottest year on record. Climate change is real!
This past December, many of the "one percent-ers" of the world met in Paris to create and sign what is appropriately titled the Paris Agreement. This agreement is a set of policies and guidelines created by world leaders, billionaires, and climate change experts that will help prevent further global warming of our planet and depletion of our ozone.

There are absolutely zero downsides to going solar. There are more than one million solar systems installed across the U.S. and there needs to be more! Countries like Germany and Sweden are way ahead of us when it comes to renewables, so we have some catching up to do. We have a responsibility to ourselves, to our children, and to future generations to take care of everything around us.
