Are Solar Panels Worth It?


Solar energy is right choice for anyone who wants to improve their bottom line while making a responsible and positive impact on the environment.

Despite being around for decades, solar technology is more than ever becoming the definitive choice for use in homes, businesses and industrial applications.  Gaining mainstream acceptance worldwide due to its relative affordability and practical necessity, solar power makes both financial and environmental sense.

The threat of skyrocketing energy costs has arguably been the catalyst of industry’s primary interest in solar, but “going green” has numerous benefits for homeowners and businesses, as well as the municipalities in which those entities reside.  You can make a powerful statement about the Earth's future, not to mention the well-being of our children, for generations to come.


According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), "Electricity generation is currently the largest industrial source of air emissions in the United States.

Fossil fuel-fired power plants are responsible for 40 percent of manmade carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions, 23% of the nation's nitrogen oxide (NOX) emissions, and 67% of sulfur dioxide (SO2) emissions. These emissions contribute to the formation of smog, haze and are associated with a wide range of health problems. In addition, greenhouse gases emitted by fossil fuel-fired power plants increase the risk of climate change. In comparison, the emission from solar electricity generation is negligible as no fossil fuels are combusted to create electricity."

At Solar Optimum, our team of engineers, estimators and financial analysts have the expertise and experience to provide an initial site feasibility analysis, system design, cost estimation, and overall scope of work.  We'll address every aspect of your situation to determine if solar energy is the right choice for you before a single solar panel is installed.
