It also has me thinking about the power supply and protecting my home. We are pretty fortunate as we live very near Rex Hospital and in a neighborhood with underground utilities. We rarely if ever lose power and on the occasions where we have, the power outage has only been for a limited period of time. But, I do think about what would happen in a severe power disruption situation, and how we might manage that. Our sailboat had an onboard Generac generator, so a home generator might be the solution, especially one that is connected to our gas supply, but what if we lost gas for some reason? Again, not a likely scenario, but the disruptions in the supply chain for just about everything have at least made me consider the options. Plus, for not much more than the cost of installing a generator, I could have a completely sustainable home power generation system.
What about Solar in Raleigh, North Carolina?
Benefits of Solar Power Systems
- Pollution-free and causes no greenhouse gases
- Renewable clean power
- Reduced dependence on foreign oil
- Safer than traditional electricity
- Positive ROI
- Federal grants, tax incentives
I do believe at this point, Solar Power Systems are an investment. One which lowers long-term costs, provides protection, and would add an attractive feature to our home that will attract future buyers. Coupled with an EV power stanchion, this would be a turnkey solution to several value-enhancing home upgrades. I’m looking forward to learning more about just how capital efficient this process can be. Our family is converted on EVs… Solar Power Systems are likely next.
