Are Residential Solar Systems Worth It?
If you’ve ever spoken to anyone from any solar company, you’ve heard a similar sales pitch: “Switching to solar can save you thousands of dollars!” But how true is this pitch? That largely depends on a number of factors. Read on to find out the breakdown of whether or not installing residential solar panels is worth it for you.
How Much Is Your KPLC Electric Bill?
How much you pay for your electricity is the number one factor in how much money you’ll actually save by installing residential solar panels and water heaters.
You currently pay KPLC for every kilowatt-hour (kWh) of electricity you use, so depending on where you live, you could be paying anywhere between Ksh12/= per kWh up to over 15 cents per kWh.
When you install residential solar systems (solar panels and water heaters), you’re pretty much installing a mini power plant on your roof so you won’t have to use the electricity produced from the utility company’s power plant. The more you currently pay for your electricity, the more you’ll be able to save by installing residential solar panels.
How Much Does The Solar Panel & Solar Water Heating System Cost?
The cost of installation will vary depending on the company you choose to install your residential solar panels. Also, keep in mind that cheaper isn’t necessarily better in this case. By installing higher quality solar systems, your total 20-year savings will usually be a lot higher.
