Instead of focusing on the negative reports in the news about energy and oil prices, Imperial Valley residents can take the bull by the horns and control their own destiny. Can the average person outdo the government in Washington with so little voice? In fact, a U.S. citizen could take control of the discussion on energy person by person and change the way the governments in Washington and Sacramento address the problem.
With arguments about energy pointing to a pipeline not yet built and oil reserves not yet tapped, the available solutions seem to be missing. What about Imperial Valley solar energy systems and the effect they could have on environmental and energy policy? As with most relevant topics, this discussion seems largely absent from recent debates and movements on the House and Senate Floor. We know that oil interests are always influencing politicians, but the time to deal with the status quo is over.
The benefits of Imperial Valley solar energy systems cannot be ignored. Each household with solar power at its disposal can cut fossil fuel energy use in half. When you are dealing with finite energy sources – most of which are controlled by unfriendly kings and dictators – this type of impact cannot be overstated. The widespread adoption of Imperial Valley solar energy systems would start forcing oil suppliers worldwide to bring prices down. There simply would be less of a need for fuel in every home.
The latest Imperial Valley residential solar plans are more affordable than ever. Solar energy is no longer the expensive luxury of eccentric environmentalists. In fact, it makes sense for anyone interested in fiscal responsibility and decreasing our dependence on foreign oil. The biggest cost comes from installations of solar energy systems. Financing is available and many attractive deals can be struck with companies dealing in this alternative energy.
Furthermore, incredible incentives exist that make the investment in solar panels start paying off immediately. As soon as you have access to this energy, your use of fuel in the house will go down and your energy bills will come down with it. The following year at tax time, you’ll really start to see the benefits. A credit of 30% of your investment is available at the federal level, while even more benefits are on the table for California residents. The news about property value is equally promising. Appraisers are estimating about a 4% increase in properties with solar energy solutions.
