Common Misconceptions

Solar Energy Is Too Expensive

I can't afford a higher bill!

The truth is that, with solar financing options such as a Solar Lease, you can go solar for zero down and start saving up to 15% or more on your electric bill today!

Solar Energy Is Unreliable

I’ll wait until the technology improves.

Solar panels typically come with a manufacturer's warranty for 25 years and they’ll most likely last even longer. How many electronics do you have with a 25 year warranty?

Solar Energy Won't Work for Me

It's too cloudy where I live.

Germany has 5 times as much solar power as the U.S., despite having the same amount of sunshine as Alaska, which is the lowest in the U.S. (Washington Post)

Isn’t Solar Hard to Maintain?

It takes too much work to maintain the panels!

Solar energy requires almost no maintenance during its lifetime, which is typically 30 years or more. Besides an annual cleaning, the solar panels pretty much take care of themselves.

Solar Energy Isn’t for Me

I'm not an environmentalist or into techy things.

As long as you like saving money, solar energy is for you! Homeowners will save an average of over $40,000 over the life of the solar energy system. A solar system is being installed every 4 minutes in the U.S. By 2016, it’s projected to drop to every 83 seconds. (Greentech Media)
