Depending on where you live, a solar panel system may not be the best option. If your proximity to external power source is close enough, than that might be more affordable. They benefit people in rural areas with high electric rates the most.

Nevertheless, solar panels can increase a home’s value. There is also the benefit of helping the environment. Solar panels are a form of clean energy because they don’t produce any pollution that is released into our atmosphere, like coal, oil, and gasoline. If helping our environment is important to you, than that may be reason enough to get them.

Thanks to government incentives such as the federal solar Investment Tax Credit, or ITC, homeowners can get money back on their investment.
