Happy Monday Friends! Hope you had a wonderful weekend. We actually had a cooler weekend… highs in the 80’s… it was glorious! But the heat is coming back this week. Where we live in Southern California it gets HOT during the summer months and into early fall. Our August and Septembers are filled with days where the temps are regularly over 100 for the high. When the whole Southern California basin has a heat wave the power grids get overloaded and power outages are common.
Since we moved out here 6 years ago we’ve thought about getting solar panels.
Anything that can help to save money I’m interested in.
When we did the landscaping on our home we made sure to plant greenery that was water wise.
We do what we can to save water… but what about electricity. We definitely get plenty of sunshine and with the cost of utilities always going up it would be wonderful to save some money.
When we’ve discuss solar panel we’ve come up with a couple worries. The first was how some of them look. Some are so obtrusive and definitely an eye sore. Sungevity’s solar panels are completely black. I like when they have one solid color.
Another issue is of course the cost. I learned that if you’re spending over $150 on your electric bill or if you’re considering adding a pool than solar is definitely worth the investment. Even better… right now through the end of September Sungevity is offering $500 off all solar systems for customers who choose to go solar! Offer ends September 30, 2014. Enter “BLOG500” (all caps) in the Referral Code field for the discount. *This offer is non-transferrable and cannot be combined with any other Sungevity offers or promotions. Offer expires September 30, 2014.
In doing my research… here’s the main benefits for getting solar…
- Saving money… that’s HUGE in my mind
- Great for resale value… if you ever sell your home that’s a great bonus feature
- Helping the environment… you’re using less energy.
