It’s becoming more and more popular to ‘go green’ and be as efficient as possible as a homeowner. One very popular eco-friendly option homeowners are turning to are solar energy.
When solar energy is used as a source of power, it helps you spend less on both heating and cooling. For instance, electricity from solar power costs only $1 per watt, so you can see why solar panels have become so widespread.
