You might have been wondering for a couple of years if investing in solar energy for your Southwest Wisconsin home makes sense. I can easily say it will be one of the best decisions you’ll make for your home and the environment if you choose to go solar this year.
Benefits of the Solar Switch
The first time I thought about solar energy, I was interested in two distinct reasons. I wanted to reduce my reliance on traditional energy methods, and I wanted to save money on my electricity bill. A solar panel installed by Current Electric will deliver on both of these areas. When I investigated the savings I could get with a solar panel system, I was amazed to see the returns in energy investment. A solar system is a substantial upfront cost, but the returns in the investment more than triple your initial investment. And instead of paying your electrical bill of $120 a month, you can invest that money into other projects. Although you may skeptical at first about the investment costs, once you look into monthly savings and returns on investment, you’ll be convinced this is the right financial move to make.
Along with being interested in saving money, you may be an environmentally conscious person as well. Solar energy is a renewable energy source that will continue to power your home for years to come without a carbon footprint- just the rays of the sun! By switching your home to a solar system, you will be able to completely power your home without relying on the electrical company. It feels good to know you’re using a renewable energy source and reducing your household’s traditional energy consumption with a solar energy system.
A benefit of solar energy in your home you might not consider, along with savings and energy independence, is the increased value of your home. Researchers found that on average, a buyer was willing to pay a $15,000 premium for a home with a photovoltaic system. This is just one more piece of the puzzle that demonstrates that this investment is worth it.

A recent solar installation done by Current Electric in Pewaukee was highlighted in the Journal Sentinel on October 31st! Chris Lueth, an American Family Insurance agent located in downtown Pewaukee, is one of the first businesses in the area to go solar. He added the panels to his office building in order to reduce his carbon footprint and save on electricity costs.
On this particular solar installation, Current Electric installed 38 panels. These will produce more than 11.4 kilowatts of power – enough to generate electricity to power the entire building located on 112 Main St!
Here’s what Chris said about his decision to choose Current Electric: “Kudos to the contractor, Current Electric. I had bid out for proposals, and I liked how they have a solar division. They seemed very well-organized and they basically took care of the whole process.”
