Solar energy is not just an environmental push. Other ethical arguments support it. Exploring these arguments will help us to better understand the broad scope that sorting this clean energy source can have.
The american dream is one of comfort and sustainability. Most look forward to this at retirement and work their whole lives to achieve this goal. One of the ways you can achieve this dream is through investing in solar technology on your residence.
One Less Bill
When you are stuck with a fixed income many people still have payments on their home, transportation, utilities, and food. As an individual that no longer has the ability to earn a livable wage this can cause a lot of pressure on family members to pitch in and provide.
The prepared retiree has planned for the future by paying off their home and car before retirement, but getting rid of your utility bill just doesn’t happen. With solar, however, a large portion of it can be eliminated.
No Rate Increases
A big reason why solar is able to save you money is because power companies continue to hike up their rates. You could be going out of your way to save electricity to no avail because the rates have gone up.
Getting solar completely eliminates this problem. You have a set price that you pay for the system to be installed and then it lasts for the next 25 to 40 years.
Once your system is paid off you no longer have payments. So if you want to have money to spend in retirement, you can now remove electricity from your list of essential life-long bills.
