Harness the Power of the Sun with Solar Panels in Connecticut
As the popularity of renewable energy skyrockets, it’s no wonder why many home and business owners are turning to solar power in Connecticut. Installing solar panels on your roof allows for clean electricity generation from sunlight and reduces your dependence on the grid. Millstream Construction has extensive experience with solar panel installation and can help you determine if solar is right for your home or business.
Benefits of Installing Solar Panels
Installing solar panels can have several benefits. Most importantly, it can reduce your electricity bills substantially. Solar panels can offset 50-100% of your home’s reliance on the grid, reducing or eliminating your electric bill. Solar panels can also increase your home’s value, as homebuyers are looking for energy-efficient upgrades like solar. Not to forget that tax credits and incentives are also available, with federal and Connecticut state incentives covering 25-40% of solar system costs. Additionally, solar energy reduces reliance on fossil fuels and lowers your carbon footprint, helping the environment.
In summary, when going solar, you can expect:
- Savings – Solar panels can drastically cut your electricity bills by supplying power directly to your home. The savings typically outweigh the cost of installation in just a few years.
- Tax Credits & Incentives – Federal, state, and local tax credits and rebates are available for installing solar panels in Connecticut. This can cut your out-of-pocket costs significantly.
- Increase Property Value – Homes with solar panel systems have been shown to sell for more. Going solar can be a worthwhile investment.
- Carbon Footprint Reduction – Using clean solar energy reduces your environmental impact and reliance on fossil fuels. It’s a green energy source.
- Energy Independence – Producing solar electricity gives you control over energy costs and reduces dependence on the utility grid.
Solar Power Potential in Connecticut
Many homes in Connecticut are well-suited for solar panels. Our state gets an average of 4.5 hours of peak sun per day. While solar output fluctuates seasonally, Connecticut’s overall solar potential makes it a viable option year-round. Home orientation and roof pitch also factor into solar potential. Our solar experts will assess your home to determine the system size and panels needed.
