Golden Rays Can Turn Your Home Green

solar reduces utilities bills in most situations

Utility Bills Are Rising

You can expect a 5% increase every year. Paying around $100 a month now means eventually paying $350 a month in the future. Sure, that’s a long way off. But thinking for the long term pays off.

A solar panel system with our company over the same span of 25 years can save you over $30,000. A great way to help fund the kids’ college, retirement, new EV car, or family vacations.

Solar Panels Save Money

Is your home solar-worthy? It is if you have a large enough roof exposed to sunlight throughout most of the day. TruHome Pros Solar can come out and assess your situation and solar needs for maximum savings.

Different Solar Energy Needs

Every home’s specific solar energy needs are different. The solar installation cost varies depending on the size and number of panels you need. That cost is offset by lower utility bills. What’s more, there are currently various aggressive tax incentives that significantly offset the cost of solar panel installation that our company can help with.

But don’t wait for too many sunsets to go by. As more and more homes go solar and political winds blow in different directions, these generous tax incentives are not likely to last.

Going Green Makes You More Green!

According to the Department of Energy, each kilowatt-hour (kWh) of solar generation substantially reduces greenhouse gas emissions, such as carbon dioxide, and dangerous pollutants, such as sulfur oxides, nitrogen oxides, and other particulates. So going solar is proven to reduce your carbon footprint which is a major reason why our company does what we do.

This is why more solar panels will be installed in the next 2 years than in the last 40 years. Each home that installs solar panels, on average, offsets 4 tons of carbon dioxide, the equivalent of planting 136 trees.

Save $30,000* on Energy Costs

Solar panels are not only green technology; solar panels put more green in your pockets because you don’t have to pay the utility company for your electricity except in cases when you need more electricity than what the solar panels generate at certain times of the year.

Solar panels further help reduce utility bills whenever you feed kilowatt hours back into the power grid. Whenever you generate more electricity than you use, the power company takes that surplus energy and “pays” you for it with credit on your next bill.

The average U.S. household spends about $125 a month on energy. A solar panel system sufficient to power that house saves $1,500 annually. Given that solar panels are likely to last 25 to 30 years, that’s a potential saving of somewhere in the neighborhood of $30,000.

Individual savings are going to vary. But in most cases, solar panels end up paying for themselves and our company will go over that information with you.

Increase Home Value by 4-6%

Solar panels increase the resale value of your home. According to Zillow, solar panels improve home value by 4-6%, which is about $18,000 on average in Illinois, Wisconsin, and Michigan. After tax incentives are applied, that is about the average cost of a solar panel installation with our company. So without even figuring out what you’ll save on energy costs, you’ve already earned your return on investment.

Not to mention that it preserves the look and comfort of your home. Speaking of comfort, solar panels help make your home more energy efficient. A more energy-efficient home is a more cost-efficient home to run.

solar panels are more affordable now than ever

Solar Panels Are Affordable

Solar panels are more affordable than ever. The technology is vastly improved, and the production of solar panels is at an all-time high, bringing costs down. Federal and state SERC tax incentives further reduce solar panel installation costs.

On top of that, our solar company offers affordable financing options so you don't have to wait to take advantage of going solar.

Low Maintenance Solar Panels

Solar panels are incredibly durable and require minimal maintenance, especially the top-tier panels our company uses. However, they do require regular cleaning as dirt and leaves that build up on the solar panels block sunshine, reducing energy efficiency.

If you’re not comfortable getting on your roof to blow off leaves and cleaning the solar panels, not to worry. TruHome Pros offers highly affordable solar panel maintenance plans to help ensure rays of sunshine finds its way to your home.

How Solar Panels Work & Save You Money

Solar electromagnetic radiation—what we see as sunlight—is captured by photovoltaic cells in solar panels. This creates electrical charges that flow to your electrical panel for distribution in your house, the same way you receive electricity from your utility. While every situation is different, depending on the home and the location, especially in relation to the sun, here’s an example of how solar panels and our company can save you money.

solar energy ROI

Return on Investment

A residence in our Illinois service area had an average monthly utility bill of $104. With solar installed, the utility bill is $14. Over 25 years the cost per solar is estimated at $0.12 per kilowatt, compared to a current per kilowatt cost of $0.176. Keep in mind that the current cost can easily go up with new rate approvals. Assuming it stays the same, the 25-year savings is projected at over $28,000, a little more than $1,000 annually.

solar tax credits and rebates

Tax Credits

That’s a great return on investment (ROI) over time. But what makes solar panels even more affordable are the tax credits. In this example, the homeowner received a federal tax credit of $7,536.55 and an Illinois SREC of $8,252.68. That brings the cost of a $25,121.82 solar panel installation down to only $9,333!

gas prices are rising

Sometimes it’s hard to think far into the future because who knows what’s going to happen. Well, let’s say you had a time machine, and you could go back to 1990 when gas prices were, on average, something like $1.20 a gallon. Wouldn’t it have been great if you only paid that much over the past quarter century every time you filled up your car? Speak to TruHome Pros today and start saving with the best solar company in your area.

Going Solar Can Help Pay for Your Roof Replacement!

going solar can pay for a new roof

Generating electricity for your home with solar panels is good for the environment. It’s also good for your roof. If your roof is around 15-20 years old, it’s time to replace it. TruHome Pros are roofing experts with extensive roofing experience with residential buildings throughout Illinois, Wisconsin, and Michigan.

If we already have boots on your roof to replace it or install solar panels, you can save some money by having our company install solar panels and replace your roof at the same time. At the very least, if, as part of your solar installation, we need to make some roof repairs, we may do that at no extra cost.

If you combine a new roof with your solar panels, the potential savings are considerable once you factor in the rebates and tax incentives. Say your roof is $40,000 and your solar panels are $40,000, a total expense of $80 000. Subtract 30% in incentives, and the total costs are $56,000, or a savings of $24,000 to get a new roof along with solar panels. Plus the added benefit of lower utility bills.

Is Your Home Solar Ready?

Most homes can easily convert to solar power, save money and help the environment. TruHome Pros engineers inspect your roof to ensure it is a fit for solar panels and assess the roof’s condition. In some cases, if the property is large enough and owners are willing to devote the space, solar panels can be situated in a yard rather than on the roof.

Besides the size of your roof and the degree of sun exposure, other considerations include local zoning laws and utility policies. Our roofing and solar company is familiar with all local government and utility regulations. We handle local permitting and arrange the required inspections. A TruHome Pros technician provides you with a complete proposal of not only the cost of the solar panel installation but equally important eligible credits and projected energy cost savings.

I gave 3 star initially, sense my home isn't not producing near the power as predicted off their graph they show. Even though a lot of it is due to Mother Nature and is out of True home control. Ryan my sales rep has been awesome helping through the problem and even though they do not need to they are adding 4 panels at no charge to the home to help produces more energy and send me a credit for my low production months.
