Cons of Solar Energy

Where there are advantages there are also disadvantages. Although solar energy offers great benefits, there are also some draw backs to be aware of too.

We offer financing, which means you can own your own energy cheaper than it cost to rent it from electric companies.

If you are moving, chances are you’re selling the home or business. Though the panels can’t move with you, you can actually turn a profit as solar panels increase your property value.
