Solar PV makes sense. With a typical return on investment of 10 years or less*, homeowners not only provide clean energy for themselves, they do it payment free for twenty years after the breakeven point.
“Solar is no longer an option only for the wealthy, but an opportunity for anyone looking to gain control over monthly utility bills, and make long term, low-risk investment.” – The Department of Energy
Rocky Mountain Power and other local power companies’ electricity rates have historically increased about 3.2% per year.
Expect your solar electric (PV) system to last 30 years. Solar module manufacturers warranty their modules power production for 25 years. This means that after two and a half decades of service you solar modules will still be warrantied to produce 83.6% of their rated power under standard testing conditions (STC).
Most solar installations by J.W. Electric produce energy over the lifetime of the system at $0.05/kWh, a fraction of current electricity rates from the big utilities!
