It’s almost the end of another year, and if you have thought about doing any renovations to your home, here are four reasons to think about adding solar panels before the end of 2020.
If 2020 has taught us anything, it’s that we should expect the unexpected when it comes to…well, everything. It has been a year of massive disruption to our normal daily lives, not only because of the global COVID-19 pandemic that swept the world in the spring and continues to spread in many parts of the globe still today. It has also been a year of record-breaking natural disasters, including severe hurricanes, wildfires, tornadoes, and extreme temperatures.
These things are frightening and stressful right now, but they should also serve as a reminder that it’s important for families and households to be as prepared as possible to survive when some of our normal luxuries are not available. That includes electricity, but if you only have power through your local utility company, you’re not prepared for an extended outage. A solar system with battery backup can provide you with several hours, or even several days of power when the local grid is down. That can be a lifesaving difference in extreme cold or heat, and can ensure that you and your family have power to eat, charge devices, and stay safe.
This year has been one of the hottest on record, and there is overwhelming evidence that human activities are contributing to more greenhouse gases in the environment. These raise global temperatures and will soon lead to more extreme weather, more destructive natural disasters, rising sea levels, and unsustainable conditions in many parts of the world. If you’re looking for ways to reduce your carbon footprint, solar energy is one of the most impactful things you can do today.
The current tax incentives are changing, and will drop to their lowest levels in 2021, down to just 22% (from 26% in 2020). If you get a solar array for your home now, you’ll be able to take advantage of the higher tax credit.
Don’t wait to start saving on your energy bills. Getting a solar system right now means you will be able to start saving immediately—putting it off for several more months or years will only delay the time that you can take advantage of the lower costs of renewable energy.
Don’t waste any more time. Get solar panels from Intermountain Wind and Solar installed on your home today and start saving on energy bills (and saving the planet) right away.
