Top 10 Reasons to Go Solar
1. Save money on your electric bills immediately
Maxam Solar will design a solar energy system based on your electrical usage and billing history. We only use actual data to create a solar analysis. Our customers typically save $30-$300 per month from the start.
2. Save money on your electric bills long-term
APS customers typically see a rate increase of 5%-8% each year. For example, a $200 electric bill today with a 5%-8% will be $210-$216 in one year, $255-$294 in 5 years and $326-$432 in 10 years.
Your solar plan remains the same for 20 years and then goes away. As a result, with a fixed rate plan your savings increase every year as your electric bill continues to goes up.
3. $0 down and no security deposits
You will literally be replacing your ever-increasing electric bill with a much lower solar with NO MONEY OUT OF POCKET.
4. Low fixed rate solar plan
Maxam Solar is the only solar company we know that buys down your interest rate and locks this rate for 20 years. By buying down your interest, our customers traditionally save $50-$80 more per month over the standard rates provided by other solar companies.
5. Solar payments do not start until after the installation
Your solar plan does not start until after the installation. With Maxam Solar you never have to worry about your high traditional electric overlapping with your new solar plan.
6. Tax incentives
The federal government will pay for 30% of the total cost for you to go solar. The State of Arizona will contribute a flat sum of $1,000 for you going green.
Keep in mind, 2019 is the last year will pay 30% of your costs. It is written into legislation that this amount will decrease significantly over the next several years.
7. Property value increase – home sells faster
The solar homes have an increased property value of $3-$4 per watt (W) over comparable homes without solar. The average Arizona home has a 9.0kW (9,000W)-10.0kW (10,000W) solar energy system. This equates to a property value increase of $27,000-$30,000 to $36,000-$40,000 when you go solar.
Not only will your solar home sell for more money, studies show that is sell 20% faster. Going solar is a great investment in your home.
8. No long-term commitments
Even though you have 20-year fixed rate solar plan, there are no long-term commitments when you sell your home.
The seller puts the balance of the solar into the purchase price of the home, thus eliminating financial obligations. The buyer gets a home with no solar plan and an electric bill of $0-$30. It is a “win-win” scenario for both the seller and buyer.
9. Lock in buyback program rate rate for 10 years
APS has a solar electricity buyback program called Net Metering. Net metering prevents solar customers from having to purchase expensive batteries since APS will pay YOU for electricity you generate that is not used.
If you sign a solar purchase agreement BEFORE August 31, 2019 you can lock in the APS buyback rate (Net Metering) of $0.1161 per kWh for 10 years. After this deadline date, it has yet to be determined what the rate will be (or if it will be continued).
Maxam Solar ideally builds a solar energy system that offsets 100%-110% of your electrical usage. As a result, our customers are often able to get a credit back from the utility company.
10. Clean and renewable energy source
Solar energy is also called “clean energy” or “green power” because it doesn’t pollute the air or the water. Solar energy is a renewable free source of energy that is sustainable and completely inexhaustible, unlike fossil fuels that are finite. It is also a non-polluting source of energy and it does not emit any greenhouse gases when producing electricity.
Presently, renewable solar energy is the best solution available for the future of our environment. The use of solar energy can also save the depleting fossil fuels and can be sustained for future generations. It would take 0.3% of the world’s land area to supply all of our electricity needs via solar power.
Arizona homeowners have access to more sunlight than any other continental U.S. state. Arizona is the ideal location to have a solar home and helps create a better environment in the future for our loved ones.
