A Solar Dream Home

Center Barnstead, NH

Sun Dial Solar recently completed a “net zero” solar panel installation for a stunning lake home in Center Barnstead, NH. A “net zero” home means that the amount of solar energy the home generates is roughly equal to the amount of energy the home uses in a year. What does this mean for the home owner? No more electric or hot water bills! You can see this beautiful home and the completed installation in the picture below.

In addition to saving on their utility bills, this homeowner was able to receive tax incentives, state rebates, and federal rebates to help cover the costs of installation. The common misconception with solar panels is that they are expensive to purchase and install. However, Sun Dial Solar has thoroughly researched the various rebates, incentives, and money saving practices consumers have available to them to help reduce the costs of installation and maintaining the panels.

Once the panels are installed, consumers see a lifetime of savings on their energy costs. Some even earn money on the energy they generate by selling excess energy to the conventional grid. Worried about the resale value of your home if you install solar panels? According to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, home values increase an average of $20 for every $1 reduction in annual utility bills.
