Why Go Solar? The Best Move You Can Make

Solar power is a fast-growing medium for cheap, long-lasting energy in today’s world. You, however, may still be on the fence about it. Well here at Next Phase Electric we believe in providing our customers with the best and latest in electrical technology, and we are confident that solar energy is the future. Here’s why.

Good for The Environment, Both Inside and Out

Solar energy does not produce the harmful emissions that other types of energy production does, so it’s better for the Earth. And while it’s true that it takes some energy to make the PV (photovoltaic) cells that power solar devices, that energy is made up for in about a year and a half of that cell’s operation. Plus, studies show that when companies go solar, customer perception and employee morale improve.

Financial Benefit

Installing a solar system may seem like a daunting and expensive task, but it is definitively worth the effort. It is almost a sure-fire way to see a return on investment. While residential properties have the added benefit of an improved resale value, commercial installations reap benefits from solar as well. No longer will you be at the mercy of fluctuating electricity prices. Not to mention, the tax break received for simply having a solar panel network installed. Panels last for decades as well, and often come with 30 year minimum warranties. With the money saved on utilities and perks like performance based incentives (PBIs), upgrading to solar practically pays for itself.


There are long standing misconceptions about solar energy. Many believe that the power it provides is only good during long sunny days. You would be out of luck once night rolled around or there was a particularly cloudy day. This of course, is not the case. Panels accumulate power all day, even on gray days, soaking in plenty of excess power. That power sets back your electric meter, crediting your utility account. That credit can then be used in the evening, without costing you a dime. So, what are you waiting for? The sooner you invest in solar, the sooner the benefits will rain down on you.
