The Benefits of Solar Power Systems

There is tremendous value in deciding to invest in a renewable energy system. The benefits you receive from your renewable energy system are not only realized immediately, but for many years over the course of the system's life.

Resilience: Solar power plus energy storage means you have electricity at your home even when the electric grid goes down. The cost of energy storage systems has dropped significantly and many people are looking to have the security of having a backup power system paired with their solar array. Additionally, battery storage helps you consume all your solar power if the utility company changes rates in the future.

PV+EV= Driving on Sunshine: Use your solar array to power your electric vehicle and you could be driving on sunshine! Northwind can help you by installing a Charge Point Level 2 electric vehicle charging station or a SolarEdge inverter, with an electric vehicle charger built-in, and you can use the sun to power your vehicle.

Energy Security: Protect yourself from the ever-rising cost of energy. Simple economics say as energy demand rises, so do prices. Nobody knows exactly what a kWh of electricity or a gallon of LP will cost in 5, 10, or 20 years, but we all generally agree that prices are going up and will continue to do so.

Environmental Stewardship and Sustainability: It's the responsibility of each one of us to ensure clean air and water for future generations. By reducing the amount of carbon emissions introduced to our environment from traditional fuels, we can make a positive impact on the future of our natural resources.

Independence and Self-Reliance: Wisconsin doesn't have any traditional fuel sources such as coal or natural gas. As a state, we send over $18 billion dollars a year out of state to bring in those fuels in addition to already importing millions of gallons of foreign oil each year. By investing in renewable energy, you keep your money in Wisconsin and support local communities, local businesses, and local jobs. Invest in you, invest in your community, invest in Wisconsin, invest in renewable energy!

State and National Support: Northwind uses many American made products and components. We pride ourselves on supporting our local, state, and national economies. Solar provides support here at home that strengthens our society.

Sound Financial Investment: Solar provides a strong investment in the future. A renewable energy system can reduce or even eliminate your energy costs and as prices of traditional fuel sources rise, solar will always be free! Look forward and plan for your future. We can provide you with a full financial analysis of your system and how it will benefit your budget or business plan.
