14 May Reasons to Go Solar in Nicaragua
In Nicaragua, power is not always available, so it really shouldn’t be hard to convince anyone to go solar. You help the environment, reduce your carbon footprint, save money, and increase your property value. But just in case you need some convincing, here are four more reasons:
Earn a great return on your investment
Solar panels are not an expense – they are an investment. Returns are often better than the stock market. Also, they save you money on electric bills while offering a solid return of 20 percent or more.
Protect against rising energy costs
Energy prices are always going to rise, if for no other reason than utility companies enjoy a formidable corner on the market. In the past ten years, residential electricity prices have gone up by an average of three percent annually. Yet when you invest in solar now, you lock in your energy cost and protect yourself against unpredictable increases in energy costs.
Increase your property value
Homes equipped with solar not only spend less time on the market, but sell for higher amounts. For this reason, appraisers are now instructed to take solar installations into consideration as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers become more educated about solar, demand for properties equipped with solar panel systems will continue to grow.
Demonstrate your commitment to sustainability
Going solar in Nicaragua doesn’t just make sense economically, it makes sense to preserve and protect the environment in ways that maximize our efforts. For that, there is nothing better than solar. And going green is also an act of goodwill. It says to the world around you that you are part of a larger mission to think not just about today’s world, but the one we are creating tomorrow.
