Solar Benefits & Incentives in Jackson MS: Savings & Value

Solar Benefits

Cost Savings

Financial returns and lower monthly utility bills are major incentives for going solar. The exact savings you will see with solar depends on the following:

  • Electricity Consumption
  • Solar Energy System Size
  • Daily Hours of Direct Sunlight
  • Size & Angle of Roof
  • Local Electricity Rates

A solar electric system provides an opportunity for anyone who is looking to reduce monthly utility bills and make a long-term, low-risk investment.

Increase in Your Home’s Value

Solar panels are viewed as upgrades, like a renovated kitchen or a finished basement, so purchasing a solar energy system will likely increase your home’s value. Studies show that homeowners pay a premium for a solar home; one study by Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory showed that on average, solar increased the value of a home by about $15,000. Although market factors like electricity rates and system size may impact the size of the premium, solar homes can sell for more than homes without solar.

Solar Technology Works

When it comes to sunshine, the Hospitality State isn’t lacking! Mississippi averages over 2700 hours of sunshine each year or just over 215 total days with sunshine.  In fact, Mississippi is ranked as the 13th sunniest state in the U.S and consumers and developers are noticing as 576 MWs of solar valued at $632 million has been installed in Mississippi – and the numbers will grow as homes and businesses embrace the value and benefits of solar energy.

Control How Inflation Affects You

What if 20 years ago you had the chance to set the price you would pay for gasoline for the next 30-40 years? The price per gallon of gas 20 years ago was substantially lower than it is today. If you could have made that deal, you would still be paying that flat rate. Solar gives you the opportunity to do the same thing. Solar allows you to have predictable electric utility bills each month for the next 30-40 years!

Client Story

Problem

“My wife and I were tired of seeing our electric bill grow month after month, year after year. With a pool, 3 HVACs, and 4 kids, we use a lot of energy! We have newer, energy-efficient appliances and LED lighting, which helps. But, we wanted to drastically reduce our bill and weren’t sure what to do.”

Solution

“After reaching out to EPL, they quickly showed us how much we could save with a rooftop solar project and were really great about explaining everything and answering our questions. We decided to go solar. EPL designed and installed a system that offset most of our energy usage and looks great on our roof.”

Savings

“We installed our system in the summer. The savings we saw were immediate and drastic. Our last bill pre-solar for June was around $500. Our first bill post-solar for July was only $210! Our bills during the spring and fall are usually in the $40-60 range, and our total annual energy cost has dropped by 75%!”
