How can I prepare for rolling blackouts in my area?
Solar power is one of the ways that federal and local governments are looking to improve the ability of the power grid to handle spikes in demand.
Also, solar-powered homes reduce the demand for power on the grid and can provide excess power to the grid.
Do solar panels raise your property taxes?
No, installing solar panels will not increase property taxes. Your property taxes are typically increased when local governments fund projects such a road constructions, building new schools, etc.
Will I still have an electric bill?
Yes, you will still have an electric bill. Your house will still be connected to the electric grid and you will receive a monthly bill from your electric company.
With a Sunrun system, you can expect to see a much lower bill from your local electric company. Also, excess electricity that you send into the grid may earn you credits towards your bill.
