Save on Electric Bills

This is by far the most straightforward benefit of having solar energy system. Whether you lease or buy, your electricity costs will drop to the floor and you’ll have extra money in your pocket each month.  And since SunPower units are built to last, you stand to save on your electric bills for the 25-40 year life cycle of your solar unit.  Utility companies increase their rates every year due to inflation which means we can logically conclude that their rates will be enormous 25 years from now.  PG&E, for example, increases their rates 6% each year.
