Solar Providers in Nevada

The solar industry in the United States is growing at a record pace. This is thanks in chief to the affordable cost of solar panel installation, the cost savings benefits for homeowners, and the environmental advantages of going solar. There is now more than 121 gigawatts of solar PV capacity in the US, which is sufficient to power more than 23 million American homes.

For many Nevada homeowners, their focus has shifted specifically to solar panel installation. The Sagebrush State is one of the sunniest states in the US, making it an ideal location for residential solar panels. Las Vegas, for example, gets around 294 sunny days each year, which is significantly higher than the national average of 205 days.

Here, we will highlight everything you need to know about solar installation in Nevada. This includes the primary benefits of switching to solar energy, the process of installing solar panels, the average costs, and why you should choose LGCY Power. Let’s get started.

The Benefits of Going Solar in Nevada

As we have noted, Nevada is perfectly suited to harnessing the energy of the sun through solar panels. In fact, the state ranks 6th in the US by cumulative solar capacity.

More than 4,500 megawatts of solar capacity have been installed in Nevada to date. This is despite the fact that Nevada ranks just 32nd in terms of state populations. Let’s highlight the key benefits of going solar in Nevada.

Save On Energy Bills

For many homeowners in Nevada, the driving reason behind making the switch to solar energy is the potential cost savings. Over the lifespan of a solar system in the state, homeowners stand to save tens of thousands of dollars on their home’s energy bills.

To give an example in Nevada, let’s look at Clark County at the southern tip of the state. Taking a residential property with an average monthly utility bill of $148, the recommended solar panel system size would be 5.9 kW. The net profit (the savings minus the upfront cost) over 25 years is estimated at between $27,608 and $33,743.

This does not mean that a solar panel system will cease to work after 25 years, either. With proper care and maintenance, solar panel systems can effectively absorb solar energy and generate electricity for 40 to 50 years in many cases. With this example, there is a payback period of just 8 to 9.8 years on the initial investment.

Support the Environment

Solar energy is a clean, infinite, and renewable energy source that does not result in greenhouse gases. This puts it in stark contrast to fossil fuels. Coal, oil, natural gas, and other fossil fuels are non-renewable, finite, and cause tremendous damage to both the planet and humans.

More and more people today are conscious of their own personal carbon footprint. By switching to solar energy, you can play your part in protecting the environment. Solar panels help to reduce air pollution, water usage, and humanity’s collective dependence on fossil fuels.

Increase Property Value

Solar panels installation is also a great way to boost your home’s property value, given that they are regarded as home upgrades. Prospective homebuyers are willing to pay a premium for homes that feature a solar system.

The Office of Energy Efficiency & Renewable Energy reports that buyers pay around $15,000 more for a home that has installed an average-sized solar system compared to a similar-sized property that does not feature solar panels. You may not have any plans to sell your home currently, but this is another positive to keep in mind.

The Cost of Solar Panel Installation in Nevada

Solar panel costs have been steadily falling in the US and today’s prices are around 60% lower than a decade ago. We have noted above how your energy usage and property size will play a role in determining the size of the solar system you need (and therefore the upfront cost). Other cost factors will include the exact property location and your choice of solar panel manufacturer/brand.

The good news is that homeowners who install solar systems on their properties this year can benefit from the 26% federal solar tax credit. This credit will reduce to 22% in 2023 and thereafter expire, so now is really the best time to switch to solar electricity.

In Clark County, the average cost of installing a 5.9 kW solar panel system is between $10,521 and $12,859. This is after fracturing in the available 26% tax credit.
