When you’re a customer of a power company, you have to deal with Variable Rates. Even if you are set up with budget billing, it is still a Variable Rate because it goes up every year. Variable Rates represent two types of rates. To start with, rates with the power company can be variable throughout the year depending on what time of year it is and how much power you are consuming, so it’s always changing. It is also a Variable Rate because the rates do not stay the same from year to year. They are continually increasing so you never know what to expect and you can’t set an accurate budget.
By switching to solar, it’s completely diﬀerent. You now have a Fixed Rate (Bill) that never goes up and stays the same for the term that you select. You now have something that can ﬁt into your budget and you will always know what to expect each and every month and from year to year. The best thing is, you are taking ownership of your power now, and you will one day, have it paid oﬀ. More on that in the next section.
If you’re reading this and you own your home then this will come natural to you. Can you remember when you may have rented a home? When you did that, you were giving money away to someone else and you were not gaining any equity on the money you spent. You were essentially putting money into someone else’s pocket. That’s probably one of the biggest reasons you decided to pay for your home in cash or get a mortgage. Right when you did that, you decided to take ownership over the money your were spending and gain the equity on that money yourself. You decided to put that money back into your own pocket. Smart move!
NOW, with the program we work with here at Gaia Home, you can do the same thing with your electric bill. It’s one of the biggest reasons why millions of people all over the country are going solar right now. At the moment, you are most likely paying for an electric bill that’s probably in between $50-$500. It really doesn’t matter what your electric bill is, what matters is you are giving that money away to someone else’s pocket (Renting It) and you are not gaining any equity. If and when you decide to make the switch to solar, it’s practically doing the same thing for you as a mortgage did and you are taking ownership of that bill each and every month. So what does that mean for you? It means that you now have the ability to gain the equity on that same money and you have the opportunity to switch to solar for $0 down and no out of pocket expenses and all you have to do is pay the solar payment to pay oﬀ your panels instead of a high electric bill. By going solar, you are deciding to put the money back into your own pocket. If this sounds like something you want to do, please click here.
Another reason people decide to take ownership over things is the fact that they don’t want to pay for it the rest of their lives. If you are renting anything, and you don’t make any changes, you will continue to pay for it forever. That’s why people decide to own things or pay things oﬀ with a payment plan. You select the term of payments, you make those payments, you make your last payment, and then you never have to pay for it again. How would that feel to have free and clean energy that’s being produced right there at your own home? Please click here to have one of our solar experts come out and explain how you and your family can start your journey toward free and clean energy.
What does all of this mean to you? And what if I am worried my age could make me a bad candidate to go solar? Those are all great questions! To start with, it means that by going solar, you are now Protected from the ever increasing electric bills we all are facing at this very moment and the 7.5% Inﬂation Rate. Here at Gaia Home, we like to call it the Unknown vs the Known. If you don’t know what’s going to happen to your electric bill, or any bill for that matter, doesn’t that seem like a liability? Without even taking the rate increases we have seen recently into consideration, and just going oﬀ the last 20 years, we have seen an average rate increase of 3.4%. The total you would be paying the power company over the life of the system is going to be 3-4 times the amount you will pay for your solar system.
It’s a huge risk to keep paying a bill that someone else has control over. That’s why going solar can truly Protect you and your family and become one of your families greatest Assets for decades to come. If you are on a ﬁxed income, it’s more important than ever. By going solar, you can lock in a payment that you Know what it’s going to be and make sure the payment and term you select ﬁts into your budget.
That’s the true beauty of being able to transition to solar and own your power and become Energy Independent. To learn more about how you can become Energy Independent, please click here.
