Solar as an investment—is it worth it?

Solar panels or photovoltaic (PV) systems may be a good investment for some customers, but not for others. If your main goal is to reduce your bill, first try to use as little energy as possible to see how that affects your bill. To help you save, SMECO has programs available such as the Home Energy Improvement Program, along with helpful free advice to reduce energy use and reduce your bill.

The amount of energy you typically use, the amount of sun in your yard, the number of solar panels installed, and the cost of installation are just some of the factors that need to be considered when you get estimates for solar PV systems.
