As the trend continues to take off, it’s worth exploring the idea of whether it’s better to install your own panels or purchase the cleaner and cheaper energy from a large utility scale operation.
Firstly, who doesn’t love their independence. When you home is able to generate its own power, you don’t have to bow to the fickle whims of a utility company every time they decide to raise the rates.
Another benefit of installing your own solar is that through net-metering programs and federal income tax breaks, you’re able to recoup much of the installation costs and completely pay off your system in a matter of years, enjoying monthly energy bills where the energy company might be paying you (with credits) rather than the other way around.
For many people who don’t own their own homes, renting solar makes sense. However, for those that do own the deed to their houses, the decision to install their own system is worth the extra work and pays much better in the long term.
