Benefits of Going Solar for Homeowners

Watch the Presentation Video

Here are the main points making up the Value Proposition for Homeowners and why they should consider going solar:

  • Homeowners – can lower their monthly payment for electricity right away
  • This new payment – is locked in at a fixed rate for the next 25 years instead of being subject to utility rate hikes of 3 to 5% or more per year
  • Homeowners – realize a home value increase of about 10% right away
  • Federal Government – provides a tax credit of up to 30% of the cost of the solar system.
  • Homeowners – get all of this with nothing out of pocket. They go from paying a higher monthly electric bill to their utility company one month, to a lower monthly payment for their new solar system the next.
  • The typical long-term financial benefit to a homeowner that goes solar is in excess of $100,000 over 25 years!
  • CA Solar Net Billing 4-13-23 Deadline is up – what this means now is you give less back to your utility company and keep more for yourself by adding battery backups at your home and from your EV.
  • Electric Bill – We need a copy so we can calculate what you will save.  Email or Text it to the Solar Consultant asking for it.
  • Schedule a Zoom Meeting – we will schedule this once we get a copy of your electric bill so we can go over the details of cost, savings and equipment.

Hello SCE.  Who will be writing the checks now?

Oh No! What happened to my SCE bill this month!  It’s only $0.76
SCE – WTF – (Want The Funding) – Start putting solar on our roofs!
Don’t be stupid.  If you try charging us for transmission costs, lobby to stop solar, we will go on battery backups and go completely off the grid.
Don’t be total losers.  Go head to head with the competition or go out of business!

Stuart Lewis – YouTube video – speaking at SBREIA event

I looked over the reviews on a lot of different solar companies.  I had a number of them come to my home and give me bids on a solar installation over the last four or five years.  I heard leasing a solar system was a bad idea and that you should buy and not lease.  That is why I never called Solar City for an estimate.  That was a “BIG” mistake.  The stories I had heard were second and third hand stories from misinformed people.  Paying it off early didn’t even make financial sense.  Once it’s yours you pay for all repairs and maintenance.  If the solar panels die out or degrade in the first 10 year because of cheap production, which the market is seeing, you have to pay for it all.  On a 20 year lease they pay for any and all problems and you are not out-of-pocket up front at all.  With the value of money $20,000 will be worth less in 20 years.  I have talked with people who purchased up front just a few years ago and are already upset with the service bills they are having to pay.

I tried to get a home equity loan or refinance my home or other rental properties to go solar but due to my high credit card debt no banks would give me a loan.  We all know how hard it is get a loan from the banks in these down market times.  They all have their own financial problems and hundreds of the banks and mortgage companies are going bankrupt and out of business.  All I needed with Solar City was a credit score of 700 or better and they didn’t even care about my credit card debts.  They qualified me in about two hours and my signed contract moving forward.

The math is simple and as I added up my total energy costs from SCE over the next 20 years it could easily be $100,000.  That didn’t even consider rates going up and you know rates will go up.  If you think your $100 electric bill per month is not enough to go solar you are not including your gas heating bill and the cost of gas for your car every month.  Far Infrared heating panels can heat your home, quiet and clean, and it is therapeutic.  I shut off our dirty forced air propane heating three years ago.  It was costing me $4,000 per year.

The inventory of electric cars is picking up each year and your solar will power that too.  Your car gas cost per month could easily be 50% of your total energy costs and it only takes a few extra solar panels to keep an electric car charged every month.

You need more details?  I’ll email you my agreement with Solar City so you can see exactly how I got a $42,000 Solar system installed with no money down and it cut my electric bill in half.  I also got the federal and state rebates factored in which brought the total price of my system down to just $26,000.  I can pay it all off after five years or just make my low monthly payment of $150 per month for the next fifteen years and then the system is mine.

I didn’t have to, but I chose the option to pay $2,500 up front to lock my rate in with Solar City because they too will increase their rate like SCE but not as much.  That brought my total amount owed down to $23,500 and my rate will never go up again!  I was paying about $350 per month to SCE and their rates could easily drive that up to $3,000 per month at the end of 20 years.  Hard to believe?   Go back 20 years and look at the price of energy, homes, food, and the rest if you don’t think prices will go up that much.

Once I pay off my solar system that’s it!  No more payments.  All my energy costs will be totally free and clean from the sun.  In 2016 the rebates might end!  There are many opportunities that will not last so Contact me for the details if you still need some.  Just click on the picture above and get your free estimate before the rebates go away!

Tesla meets SolarCity in Santa Barbara – We created this video at the Santa Barbara REIA 2-27-16 meeting and YouTube Videos which gives some very good information on what it’s like to own and drive a Tesla Model S all-electric car.  It also covers SolarCity services, installations, finance options, backup batteries, micro grids, and how they will eventually get homeowners totally off the grid.
