Why Go Solar
Solar panels can save you money by using space on your roof to produce sustainable energy right from your home. Tesla solar panels have a low-profile design and no visible mounting hardware. You can expect the following benefits from going solar:
Homes with solar panels rely less on the grid by capturing energy directly from the sun. Homeowners can offset their energy usage with solar panels and reduce their energy bills. By installing a solar panel system, you can take control of your energy usage and lower your costs. Learn more about how Tesla can save you money.
Reduce Your Carbon Footprint
Electricity from the grid is generated by a mix of coal, natural gas, nuclear and some renewable energy depending on where you live. Solar gives you a choice in where your energy comes from. By switching to solar, you will be reducing your carbon emissions and environmental impact of energy use.
Protect Yourself from Rising Electricity Rates
Electricity rates continue to increase over time - since 1970 the price of electricity has increased over 3% per year on average. In contrast, energy from your solar system has a fixed price. With solar, you won’t have to worry about how the price of your electricity will change in the future.
Increase Your Home Value
Purchasing and installing solar is an investment that increases the value of your home. Studies have shown that homes with solar are more appealing to homebuyers and sell both faster and at a premium price compared to homes without solar.
Secure Your Home from Outages
While solar alone does not function during a power outage, pairing your solar panels with a Powerwall allows you to recharge with sunlight and keep your appliances running even when the grid goes down. Tesla Powerwall is designed to integrate with solar panels and can store energy generated during the day, for use at night or during unexpected outages and grid shut-offs.
