Eleven things you probably didn't know about Solar in Pittsburgh
5 Solar panels can hold the weight of several people, even the weight of a truck.
6 Solar in Pittsburgh costs about the same amount to generate all the electricity you need for your home for the next 30 years for about the same cost as remodeling your kitchen.
7 Solar increases the life of your Roof by protecting it from hail and debris as well as reducing the heat loading from direct sunlight.
8 Solar makes no noise, has no moving parts, requires almost no maintenance and increases the value of your home.
9 Solar is a great tax shelter returning a full 30% of your initial investment in tax credits in the first year. At that rate can you afford not to build solar?
10 Buying solar in Pittsburgh is like fixing the cost of your electricity for the next 30 years. Duquesne Light has increased rates 20.2% in 2022….where do you think this rate will be in the next 30 years? With solar it will be Free. Once the system recovers its cost in the 5-8 years, you continue to get free power for a full 25-35 years.
11 Solar in Pittsburgh is true energy independence. Instead of paying the utility for electricity each month, they pay you. Instead of sitting in the dark when the power is out, you run off of your solar. Solar makes you your own utility.
