Benefits of Solar in Wisconsin

why choose 2

Lower your energy bills

Wisconsin operates on time of use (TOU) rates. This means that your energy bill may vary depending what time you use electricity. Rather than settle for high rates during peak period, your system can help you avoid them altogether. If you have batteries, you can potentially power your home at night.

Prepare for outages

Scheduled outages in Wisconsin are normal and necessary, but they are still inconvenient. Unforeseen weather may also cause outages and leave you without power. Installing batteries with your system can potentially help your home stay powered even during an outage. Talk to your dealer about what batteries can give you the freedom to keep powering your home.

Preserve Wisconsin’s outdoors

Wisconsin is known for its beautiful outdoors and extensive agriculture. Preserving the land is top of many homeowner’s lists. Not just because it is beautiful, but because it is bountiful. By installing a solar system, you reduce pollution and greenhouse gas emissions that can contaminate farmland.

Have predictable payments

Many Wisconsin homeowners are on a TOU rate system. Electricity is more expensive at certain hours of the day or times of the year. Depending on your energy usage your solar system may produce enough energy so you only pay the minimum toward your utility. Then you can budget your monthly solar cost. This can help make your monthly bills much more predictable.
