$200 in electric bills is same as $40,000 more in your home loan
Electric costs are going up every year. $200 in electric costs today are probably going to be $300 in the not so distant future. That is the same as your home loan being $60,000 more. That cannot be an option.
What would you do with extra $300 every month?
You can choose to pay $300 a month in electric bills every month, or you can use that money for something else. How about a free cruise every year? Or perhaps 40 rounds of golf, or how about 20 visits to a spa? The choice is yours.
Increased value of your home
It is a proven fact that high performance homes, and especially homes with solar technology, have a much higher resale value than the homes without this technology. Not only is the resale value higher, but the Net Zero Energy homes will also sell faster than other homes in the market.
