Or even something for yourself, family, or the future.

It’s your money. Spend it the way you want, not the way your utility company wants. You have a choice for your power source.

Spend your money the way you want.

But how does going solar save me money?

The power you generate from solar is cheaper than utility pricing, meaning more solar savings for you.

When you switch to solar, your monthly electricity bills will be less than what you are currently paying to your utility company. That’s because your solar production will offset what you would have normally purchased from your utility. The power you generate is cheaper than utility pricing, so you are able to save money for every unit of electricity you produce.

Enjoy your independence from unpredictable electricity prices and lock in your own electricity rates. Choosing solar puts you in control of your own power generation and shields you from ever-increasing utility rates.

Why gamble with future electricity prices?

Rising United States electricity rates mean more solar energy savings for you when you switch to solar power. Data from the EIA.

Now is the perfect time to begin your electricity-saving investment and lock in lower rates for decades to come.


While waiting to go solar, you still need to keep your lights on and appliances running. This means sending payments to your power company, month after month, year after year. By delaying your decision to install PV panels, you often end up paying more—quite a lot more.

Especially since electricity rates are trending upwards. This table was compiled using United States electricity rate data provided by the U.S. Energy Information Administration.

Get additional income from selling solar renewable energy credits (SRECs).

How Solar Renewable Energy Credits (SRECs) work and how they impact your solar power savings.

When your solar panels produce electricity for your home, they also produce SRECs. SRECs are credits that represent the environmental benefits associated with producing 1,000 kilowatt hours (or 1 megawatt hour) of solar electricity. You can sell your credits back to utility companies in an open market and earn more money from going solar.

SRECs maximize your solar investment.

As one of the country’s top residential SREC aggregators, Direct Energy Solar can offer you the best value for the SRECs you will generate with your solar system. We have various offerings that help you maximize your earnings and allow you to choose the timing of your earnings.
