Electricity bills can be such a burden, especially in Southern Nevada where our summers are hot and our winters are cold. That extreme weather often leads us to blast our air conditioning for half the year and really work out the central heating for the other half, making your electricity bill soar through the roof.
But, your monthly power bill doesn’t have to be so sky high. By utilizing solar energy, you can significantly reduce your electricity bill and save a lot of money every year. In a sunny state like Nevada, solar panels may even eliminate your traditional power bill completely.
How Can I Save Money with Solar Panels?
Those who use alternative, renewable energy sources like solar can take advantage of something called “net metering.” Net metering programs allow residents who utilize solar panels to basically “sell back” the energy they capture to utility companies.
In Nevada, this means that NV Energy will offer credit rebates to residents with solar panels when they capture more energy from the sun than they used that month. In places like Las Vegas, where we see an average of 300 sunny days every year, solar panel users will often capture more energy than they actually need.
It pays to go solar in Nevada
By utilizing solar panels in Nevada, not only will you reduce your electricity bill but in many cases, you may eliminate that traditional energy bill completely. While the upfront cost of installing solar may cause you to hesitate, ultimately it pays to go solar.
Federal and state tax rebates can also help push down the initial cost of installing solar panels on your home. Ultimately, with the benefits offered by net metering programs and the peace of mind that your home or business is running on clean, renewable energy—it really pays to go solar!
