Solar energy is a clean, cheap energy source, and with AMP Smart, you can have it for your home. Here are five reasons you should choose AMP Smart and make the switch to solar.
- Save Money
When you go for solar power, your wallet will thank you. One of the biggest reasons to use solar power is net metering. Net metering allows you to sell excess energy from your panels back to the grid. Not only are you able to greatly reduce or even remove your monthly electricity bill, but you can also earn money or credit by selling what you don’t use. This makes it possible for your solar power system to pay for itself.
- Go Green
Solar energy is 100% renewable and is an excellent choice to help the environment. Your solar power system creates no emissions, and as long as the sun is shining, it quietly generates clean energy.
- Get Off the Grid
With rising energy prices and more energy grids experiencing failures and rolling blackouts, a home solar power system helps you become energy-independent. As long as the sun is shining, you have access to truly free energy.
Not only does getting off the grid help you sidestep the energy crisis, but it can also protect your home during natural disasters. Some electrical grids don’t have the structure to stay up during times of crisis, but an AMP Smart system keeps the energy flowing through your home.
- Improve Your Property Value
People are willing to pay more for a home without a hefty monthly electricity bill. On average, a solar power system increases a home’s value by 4.1%. Depending on your home’s initial property value, this could be a major increase and can provide a return on your initial investment for the system.
- Low Maintenance
A great reason to use solar power is how little upkeep you have to do to get energy. Unlike a generator, there are no moving parts in your solar panels or even your battery storage. That means there’s no need for constant maintenance such as oiling or greasing. As long as your panels are clean, the system will work.

Investing in an AMP Smart solar power system for your home saves money and enables you to be energy-independent—and you don’t need to do any of the setup or installation. With AMP Smart, you’ll get a professional installation by a highly trained team who will guarantee your system is installed and running correctly.
How Much Solar Power Do I Need?
There is no such thing as a one-size-fits-all system for solar. A major factor in determining how much solar power you need for your home is first to decide if you want solar to supplement your existing energy usage or if you want to be entirely off the grid.
If you only want to supplement, a smaller system could be appropriate. If you want to be completely energy-independent, you need to determine how much energy you use each month. Your system should provide more energy than your highest month of usage. This will help ensure that your home always has the energy it needs, even if you use more than estimated.
Project Sunroof from Google can be a great starting point for estimating what’s possible with your home.
