Why go solar in 2020

July 10, 2020 | 3min read

2020 has been a challenging year thanks to the coronavirus pandemic. Uncertainty over when the economy can safely be reopened abounds. Surprisingly, in the midst of the pandemic, solar is surging! One reason for going solar in 2020 with Freedom Forever is our Solar Stimulus program. You get cash upfront when your solar is installed, and then we cover the first six month’s solar payments. Thanks to the Solar Stimulus, 2020 may be the best year for going solar ever!

Future-proof your home’s energy

Going solar in 2020 can help insulate your home’s energy budget from future utility rate increases. The rates charged by utility companies can go up, but the price you pay for energy from your solar system stays the same for life. 2020 has brought more than enough uncertainty, going solar can lend some certainty to the price you pay for electricity.

Going solar in 2020 may add value to your home

Going solar may add value to your home and could help it sell faster. The more pro-environment the community that your home is in, the more likely it is that going solar will add value to your home. According to a Zillow analysis from 2019, solar panels add an average of 4.1% to the selling price of a home. The Zillow study cited potential future energy savings as a possible reason why solar can add value to a home. 

If a homeowner qualifies for the SGIP Equity Resiliency program, they could have their home solar energy storage installed for free. 

Blackouts make solar and batteries a smart investment

If you live in an area that is prone to frequent blackouts, then going solar with batteries could be the way to go. Freedom Forever carries Tesla’s Powerwall battery system; it can be configured to power your home in a blackout entirely. If you live in California, the state’s utilities predict that Public Safety Power Shutdown blackouts will continue to occur for the next ten years. Solar and batteries can provide the peace-of-mind you need when the power goes out.
