Solar Facts

"Solar is cost effective right now. When you consider the cost to our health from air pollution, solar is just as competitive as any other energy source."

- Thomas P. Kay, Inventor

Truly Being Independent

Similar to the energy security boost, solar power provides the great benefit of energy independence. Again, the “fuel” for solar panels cannot be bought or monopolized. It is free for all to use. Once you have solar panels on your roof, you have an essentially independent source of electricity that is all yours. This is important for individuals, but also for cities, counties, states, countries, and even companies.

If you research various cleantech initiatives and projects, you'll see how impressive the numbers become. For instance, Ukraine in recent years has saved approximately $3 billion in reduced oil and gas imports from Russia thanks to the solar power plants developed by a single developer! Impressive.

Solar Panel Price Trend

Solar equipment supply has been growing significantly, thus prices have been dropping steadily

Price drops for Solar PV

Prices for rooftop PV systems have declined markedly in recent years, dropping 29% from 2010 to 2013! Not to mention there are also tax credits available for using solar!
