Unpredictable and irregular weather incidents are happening more frequently, and as we come to terms with how climate change will continue to affect us, you may be wondering about viable off the grid energy solutions. We’re seeing hurricanes and tropical storms in New Jersey, tornadoes in Kentucky, unprecedented wildfires throughout California, and who can forget the recent Texas freeze that left people without power in some parts of the state for more than one month.
While solar panels won’t solve all of our climate-related crises, going off the grid by investing in a home solar system is a great way to help protect your household against severe and irregular weather incidents, which experts predict will happen more and more frequently. Solar panels don’t rely on your city’s power supply – they gather sunlight and turn it into energy that powers your home, and solar batteries are able to store excess energy to use at night or when the sun isn’t out.
Are You Ready To Go Off Grid?
If you’re curious about solar installation, here’s what we recommend:
- Contact a local solar energy company and schedule a consultation. They’ll take a look at your home to determine if your roof is suitable for solar panels, and if it’s not, they can recommend other places on your property where a solar system can be installed.
- Discuss your energy needs with your solar installer. No two homes are alike when it comes to energy consumption and requirements, so in order to decide how many solar panels are best for your home, you’ll need to have a general idea of how much energy you use on a regular basis.
- Explore financing options. While solar panels have become much more affordable over the years, there are financing options available including solar leases and various loans.
If you’re ready to go off the grid and harness the power of completely free, clean, and renewable energy from the sun, as well as do your part for the environment and reduce your energy costs, it’s time to think about investing in a home solar system. You won’t be reliant upon your city’s energy grid, and when the next weather disaster strikes, you’ll be prepared.
