Solar Power System Benefits

Getting a solar power system can greatly reduce how much you rely on big utility companies while saving you money at the same time. Many of those utility companies have become increasingly unreliable in recent years resulting in planned outages & blackouts that impact many consumers across the country!

How Does a Solar Power System Work?

A solar power system works by converting light from the sun into electricity. This electricity can then be used in your home, stored in a solar power battery for use at a later time, or exported to the grid when it’s not needed.

Learn How Solar Works

Solar panels are a vital component of any solar power for home system because they are responsible for capturing the sun’s rays in order to generate electricity. When sunlight hits a solar panel, photons are converted into electrons.


Energy particles are absorbed by the solar cells whenever they come in contact with the sun’s rays allowing for the electrons to flow across the panel. This movement of electrons creates direct current “DC” electricity.

Solar Cell

An inverter is a crucial part of a solar power for home system as it is needed to convert the produced DC electricity into Alternating Current “AC” electricity. Once the electricity has been converted to AC, it is then sent to your home to be used.


All converted AC electricity is sent to your home’s electrical panel where it is now ready to power your home and even keep your lights on during blackouts or inclement weather if you have a solar backup battery.

A Solar Power System Will Save You Big

While most of us are familiar with the concept of comparison shopping for nearly everything we buy, we most often don’t have that option when it comes to home energy services, until now! With Astound Energy you now have the ability to comparison shop your energy services to get the best savings possible.

Getting a solar power system not only saves money on energy costs but also allows you more control over the energy you use and it also protects you from having to pay confusing and costly rates that are dictated by the utility companies.

Tax Breaks & Incentives Save You Money

Due to a number of amazing solar power system incentives across the country, solar energy can actually turn you a profit in addition to generating bill savings that pay off the cost of the system. Take advantage of these awesome incentives now before they expire!

Federal Solar Investment Tax Credit

The Federal Solar Investment Tax Credit (ITC) program offers you a tax credit worth 30% of the value of a solar power system installed through 2032! Plus, if the total value of the tax credit exceeds your tax liability for the given year, the excess value can be rolled over for up to 5 years! Take advantage of this very valuable incentive now!

Solar Renewable Energy Credits

Solar Renewable Energy Credits (SREC) programs that are offered at some state levels allow you to earn credits based on the energy production of your solar power system and you can then sell those earned credits on a secondary market for cash. There are also many states, municipalities and utility companies that offer tax credits, rebates, production-based credits, or cash payments!

Inflation Reduction Act

With the passing of the Inflation Reduction Act, the U.S. Energy policy is now supercharged - not only putting us on a path to reduce carbon pollution by 40% by the end of the decade - but also making it even easier for families to benefit from adopting solar and energy storage. The law not only restores the Solar Investment Tax Credit to 30% immediately and extends it through 2032 but also created a new 30% Energy Storage Investment Tax Credit! Additionally the law creates a new $4.3 billion whole home energy efficiency program along with a $4.5 billion home electrification rebate program for many working and middle-class families!

Solar Power Systems Create Green Energy

Solar power systems create clean energy that won’t contribute to air pollution. They also create energy without water nor have a negative impact on the ecosystem. In fact, the US Office of Energy Efficiency & Renewable Energy believes that solar power systems could help drop water consumption in at least 36 states.

We love solar power at Astound Energy and the environmental benefits are a big part of that. Whether you’re looking to do your part in making the world a greener place or you simply want to save money on your utility bills, Astound Energy is here for you

Protect Your Future With Solar Power

Annual energy costs can be in the thousands. In fact, the average annual energy expenditure per person is $3,052, including transportation and home energy usage. A solar power system can reduce or eliminate these costs as soon as they’re installed. They also offer long-term savings, because the sun is the most abundant energy source on earth!

Declare Your Energy Independence

Aside from saving money and making the world more environmentally friendly, another big reason you should move toward solar energy and storage is so that you can declare your energy independence and take ownership of your power.  Gaining energy independence allows you to live more comfortably and enjoy the luxuries of modern electricity without the fear of a large jaw dropping bill at the end of the month.  Go ahead and adjust that thermostat and live comfortably, not in fear.

Invest In Your Home

Your solar power system investment will become more and more valuable over the years as utility rates continue to rise and homebuyers look for homes with solar. Not only is solar stable and more predictable but it will also build value for years to come and can even help your home sell faster. According to a recent Zillow study, homes with solar panels installed gain about 4.1% in value. With a median home value of $226,000, that’s a premium of more than $9,000 and depending on the area you live in the increase can be even more dramatic.
