When you own a residential or commercial property, you’ll have a number of bills to deal with. Solar power can help you greatly reduce your utility bills by harnessing energy from the sun. In addition to lowering your bills, solar power can make your property more valuable and sell faster should you choose to put it on the market. Solar thermal energy is primarily used for hot water systems, while solar electric, or photovoltaic, systems generate electricity. You can sell back excess electricity you’ve created to offset any energy you use from the grid. Check out this infographic from Solar Lights & More to learn more about solar energy in The Villages and its benefits, and the differences between solar thermal and solar electric.
