These days, there’s a lot of excitement about solar power. Cleaner and greener than coal or gas, sun-generated electricity provides reliable power to many people in the Empire State.
Does this mean that solar is the right way to go for mature New Yorkers? The answer may surprise you.
More than one quarter of all Americans are aged 55 or older. Members of the so-called Baby Boom generation have always been interested in ecologically friendly endeavors such as organic gardening and carpooling, so you might assume that folks born between 1946 and 1964 would support planet-friendly solar power. Actually, you’d be correct.
Baby Boomers are Staying Home
According to those in the know, Baby Boomers are a generation that intends to remain in their home for the rest of their life. Their parents may have aged into assisted living, but the Baby Boom generation has plans to stay put.
A great many Boomers own their own homes, but now that they are retiring, they understand that they may need to be a bit more cautious about monthly expenses. This is where solar power can be a great boon.
Older Americans Save with Solar
When older New Yorkers -or anyone- installs and uses solar array panels to collect and distribute power to their home, they are able to pare down their utility company expenses in a big way. In fact, some homeowners who hire Demand Solar to design and install a solar panel array collect so much electricity, they sell the excess back to the power company at a profit.
Solar Power is Right for Older Americans
Popular Mechanics magazine predicts that by the year 2050, more than half of the country will be powered by alternative energy sources such as wind power and solar. Mature citizens have witnessed a lot of change in this nation, and the switch to solar and other alternative energies will come as a delight but not a surprise.
