Why new couples are nesting with solar. Heart shaped tattoos and engagement rings are some of the most common ways people demonstrate to their significant other that they’re in it for the long haul. When “love is in the air,” however, there are many ways to show your commitment and showing love, so why not make solar energy one of them? Here are a few ways why new couples are saying “I do” and committing to solar energy.
Saving Money is Better than Chocolate … And It’s Calorie-Free!
If you believe there’s nothing sweeter than a box of chocolates, you should think twice. A few things that affect how much you’ll save with solar energy are:
- How much you currently spend on electricity (it is estimated that the typical American family is spending over $1,335 a year on electricity alone)
- What state you live in
- How many solar panels you’ll need
Even though there’s no “one size fits all” to know exactly how much you’ll save by switching to solar energy, the amount could be as high as $30,0000! Take a look at this Energy Sage article for more.
Tax Returns Will Help You Save Too
If your relationship status has changed from “single” to “married” this tax season, why not get even luckier and take advantage of tax breaks with solar energy? The residential federal tax credit allows residents access to a credit of 26%* of qualified expenditures for a system that serves a dwelling unit located in the United States. Expenditures include labor costs for on-site preparation, assembly or original system installation, and other associated costs. This can easily turn your love-hate relationship with taxes into a strictly love one.
Spread the Love
When you’re in love you want to tell the whole world. So why not tell the whole world by also helping save the environment? “Solar energy creates clean, renewable power from the sun and benefits the environment. Alternatives to fossil fuels reduce carbon footprint at home and abroad, reducing greenhouse gases around the globe. Solar is known to have a favorable impact on the environment,” this article explains.
Young Couples are Building a Relationship With Solar Energy
One of the many stereotypes for younger generations is that they don’t care as much about global issues and aren’t willing to put in the work for what they want. This myth, however, is definitely debunked when it comes to Millenials’ concern for the environment. Did you know that Millennials are willing to pay more for investments in renewable energy than other demographics? According to this Clean Technica article, “Millennials are knowledgeable and smart about electricity services and want to use clean energy for their homes while utilizing the power of the Internet.”
Believe it or not, younger couples are also choosing solar energy for their homes. Not only for themselves and their significant others, but also for future generations.
