WHY SOLAR MAKES SENSE IN CT

Did you know that Connecticut utility companies charge some of the highest rates in the country? Because of that, a solar system in cloudy Connecticut has a higher financial return than the same size system in a sunny Southwest state where hyrdroelectricity is cheap.

Fun fact: Hartford averages 2,600 hours of sunshine each year, which is about the same as Houston and more than Rome!

UNMATCHABLE BENEFITS

Maximum Production
EcoSmart uses only high-quality panels and components, which means you receive more electricity every day with the highest reliability.

Lower Electricity Costs
With EcoSmart, you’ll pay a low monthly rate that utility companies can’t match. Your roof’s size and daily sun exposure determines how much you’ll save — and how much credit you’ll earn from your utility company by sending your excess electricity into the grid.

Higher Resale Value
Unlike buying a car, which decreases in value as soon as you drive it off the lot, a solar power system instantly increases the value of your home for years to come. According to the Appraisal Institute, every $1 reduction in your annual electric bill increases your home’s value by about $20 (the actual benefits can vary from home to home).

A More Marketable Home
Our high-quality system will give you an advantage. Buyers will notice your home’s low monthly electricity bill, so it’s no surprise that homes with solar systems are easier to market and usually sell more quickly than others.

Increased Energy Security
Generating your own electricity helps reduce our reliance on foreign oil. Adding battery storage further increases your energy security during grid outages.

Worry-Free Monitoring
We monitor your system’s production, receive alerts if a panel or the overall system isn’t operating at full capacity, and investigate possible causes for free.

Slowing Climate Change
Rooftop solar is one of the top 10 ways to keep global warming below 2 degrees Celsius, helping to protect our planet for your kids, grandkids, and generations to come.

Cleaner Air
Our clients typically eliminate 3-4 tons of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions each year. They also prevent the creation and emission of potent pollutants and greenhouse gases such as methane, nitrous oxides, sulfur dioxide, and particulate matter. That helps reduce smog and dirty air.

Reduced Environmental Contamination
The entire process of creating, distributing, and installing the components of a solar energy system has e a much lower impact on the environment than the astounding environmental harm of producing a similar amount of energy with fossil fuels, uranium, and hydroelectricity.

Healthier People
Cleaner air means healthier lungs and hearts, which improves lives, increases school and work attendance, and reduces asthma, bronchitis, pneumonia, strokes, and other respiratory and cardiovascular problems.
