The Benefits of Solar Energy
With today’s tested, reliable and long-lasting solar panels combined with latest technology optimizers and inverter, you can make an immediate difference by harnessing the sun’s power turning it into electricity to run your home or business. The benefits of solar include:
Solar Saves You Money
The solar system you own generates electricity that you would otherwise buy from your utility. Solar reduces your electric bill significantly. The savings increase over time as the cost of your utility electricity goes up.
Solar Is Clean Energy
The fuel is sunshine. With no moving parts to break, solar is low maintenance. You can take action to address climate change and save the environment by generating your own clean electricity. You are helping your community.
Incentives Help You Earn Back Your Cost
Incentives are based on installation date; future incentives will be lower than they are today. Learn about the federal, state and utility incentives here.
Zero-Down Low-Cost Loans Are Available
Local credit unions offer special low-rate loans for solar energy, battery backup, energy efficiency, electric vehicle, EV chargers, and more. Fast approval with online application and electronic signing. You get the lowest rate (depending on your credit score) because NWES is an approved installer. Loan terms are between borrower and lender. Talk with Puget Sound Co-op Credit Union or Generations Credit Union.
Solar Is Long Lasting
Solar panels will produce power for 25, 30, 35 or more years.
Solar Increases Your Property Value and Resale Price
Properties with solar systems sell more quickly than those without. Benefits of going solar are passed to the next owner.
Solar Works in Washington State
Whether you are located east or west of the mountains, if you receive direct sun for at least six hours a day year-round, then a solar system will work well for you. The ideal location is a sunny south facing roof that is not shaded by tall trees or other buildings. In Western Washington, cooler temperatures mean that solar panels operate more efficiently than in higher temps. Rain and/or snow naturally clean panels on a regular basis. Long sunny summer days significantly increase solar output.
