There has never been a better time to be mindful about your energy consumption. The power to sustain our planet is in our hands and with up to a 40% reduction in overall energy consumption, going solar is one of the most important steps in creating this sustainability.
From solar to wind power, E-Volve can integrate renewable energy into your residential or commercial property. We can help with design, materials and even construction to deliver a seamless solution that provides dependable power off the grid.
No longer geared simply to early adopters, solar energy initiatives are now an integral part of our clients’ renewable energy generation plans. E-Volve has extensive expertise in pricing and monitoring as well as procurement strategies and financing options. Our proactive equipment monitoring approach integrates with advanced technology to ensure ideal system performance. We also know how to maximize economic efficiency by keeping your project within budget and your timelines in check.
With weather patterns getting ever more unpredictable, backup generators are becoming more and more important for sustaining the safety and comfort of you and your loved ones during grid failures and dangerous weather-related outages.
Backup generation enables you to protect your home and/or business by putting renewable (and reliable) energy systems on-site that are readily available in the event of a weather emergency. With this feature, you can use excess energy generated during the day to power your essential appliances during an outage.
Someone from our expert team will be happy to meet with you to establish a comprehensive understanding of your property scope and needs. This will enable us to recommend a customized backup generation solution that offers an alternative energy source should the grid ever fail again, or when grid-based energy is too expensive to sustain your consumption needs.
Not only can going solar help sustain our planet and your pocketbook, it can also increase the value of your property. According to the most recent Zillow research on the resale value of residential properties, homes with solar panel installation sold for an average of 4.1% more, when compared to similar homes without solar energy systems.
There are some reports that indicate a similar congruency for commercial property valuation, though no official documentation has been published to verify this assumption. Ultimately, the general takeaway (whether it be residential or commercial property) is this: going solar will increase the value of your property.
For those commercial property owners looking to assess the benefits of going solar, a lot can depend on the following questions:
One of our trained experts can walk you through these and other questions designed to help you determine the value of solar for your residential or commercial property. All you have to do is ask!
Going solar has many benefits! Not only can you reduce demand for fossil fuels, limit greenhouse gas emissions and shrink your carbon footprint, just one home choosing solar panel installation can have a noticeable impact on the environment.
According to the U.S. Energy Information Administration, proactively making the switch from fossil fuels to solar power in the state of Connecticut (where the study was done) has the same emissions reduction impact as planting close to 150 trees every year.
And, another major benefit of solar energy is the overall reduction in air pollutants. In fact, an analysis by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) found that widespread solar panel installation would significantly reduce nitrous oxides, sulfur dioxide and particulate matter emissions – all of which threaten our environment on a daily basis and can cause respiratory health problems.
NREL also found that, among other health benefits, solar panel installation has the potential to limit the number of individuals treated for chronic bronchitis, respiratory and cardiovascular problems.
As if you needed another reason to go solar? But just in case you do…
The investment tax credit (ITC), also known as the federal solar tax credit, is another monetary benefit that comes with solar panel installation. The ITC allows you to deduct 26 percent of the total cost of installing your solar energy system from your federal taxes. It applies to both residential and commercial systems, and there is no cap on its value.
