Solar Provides Increasing Returns Year After Year

Matt Helms

Something to consider when calculating your financial return on a solar system for your home or business is that your rate of return will increase as electric rates increase.  When your local utility increases their electric rate X%, so does your return on investment in solar.  In this regard, solar has a built in inflation adjusted return and allows you to fix your electrical costs for the life of the system which is 25 or more years.
