The solar industry is one of the fastest growing and most promising industries today. Where older industries like real estate, construction, and coal have yet to really pick up following the recession, solar has been consistently growing at reliable (and in some ways record) rates. These rates should capture the attention of any entrepreneur looking for a solid investment and business opportunity, particularly with a solar panel franchise.
Solar Industry on the Rise
The primary reason solar panels continue to do well is because they are a product that appeals to both the financially minded and the environmentally focused. The costs of photovoltaic solar panels have decreased, while traditional utility costs continue to rise an average of 6% a year. Today, places like Hawaii, California, and Georgia can implement solar energy costs at lower rates than electricity from the grid so as to reach grid parity.
In addition to this, a collection of incentives at the local, state, and federal government levels also encourage further residential and commercial switches to solar. And despite there being concerns that the political shift might reduce or eliminate those incentives, the price of solar has decreased so significantly that experts believe that the paradigm has already shifted. Solar is here to stay—which means now is the time to invest in solar panel franchise opportunities.
Saving the Environment One Panel at a Time
Then there are the environmental reasons. Lower utility costs are something just about everyone can get behind. But where some home and business owners are interested primarily in finances first, others are motivated by environmental reasons. Solar panel systems derive clean, pure energy from the sun. As a solar panel franchise owner, you’ll assist owners in installing environmentally friendly panels that combat the very harmful impacts of greenhouse gas emissions to reduce the country’s collective dependence on traditional fossil fuel sources.
All fossil fuels—including coal, natural gas, and oil—emit harmful gases that are the leading cause of air pollution and man-made climate change. The effects of this are already being seen in Miami, where $400 million infrastructure changes are being implemented to mitigate the impacts of sea level rises from climate change. Making a switch to renewable energy solutions like solar panels is essential for the health and longevity of our coastal regions. Installing solar panels is a big step for the average home and business owner to work towards that goal.
