Is it really possible to make money with solar investments? Yes, it is!
Investing in solar doesn’t have to be for accredited investors only. In fact, the average person can invest if they choose! However, for someone who is not accredited, they will most benefit from solar by saving money—for example, by cutting back on personal utility bills by installing solar on their home—while accredited investors focus more on earning money.
Here at Shasta Power, we focus on helping accredited investors make money by investing in solar. In this blog post, we are going to look at how it is actually possible for you to increase income by investing in solar.
First, why should I invest in solar?
There are a couple of reasons, most likely, that solar has caught your attention (and why it has caught ours, as well).
If you are someone who is paying attention to our environmental economy, you know that solar power has increased in popularity over the past ten years. The cost of solar panels, construction, and inverters has dropped, while demand has skyrocketed. As the demand for solar grows, developers create more utility-scale solar projects. People are increasingly questioning traditional energy sources. As you can see, this results in an emerging sweet spot of opportunity for profit.
A significant attraction of investing in solar is the opportunity to invest in a better planet for future generations. By using renewable solar energy instead of fossil fuels, you are helping minimize the damage to our planet. By putting energy production into a more local setting, solar enables our economy to run more resiliently without relying only on dirty energy sources.
Investing in solar is an opportunity financially, yes! It is also a chance to transform the economy and the environment.
How should I invest in solar?
INVEST THROUGH LAND DEVELOPMENT
The first way you can put your drive for a better financial future and a better environmental future is by investing directly in land that is being developed for solar. You can help develop a solar farm by buying or leasing land directly, or you can invest in a private solar fund (such as Shasta Power’s Summit Power Fund!) that is developing land for solar.
Invest through the market
Another option for investing in solar is to invest in solar stocks, index funds, and ETFs. However, this is a more indirect way of growing the impact of solar energy. Check out our article How to Invest in Utility Scale Solar Energy to learn more.
What benefits will I receive from investing in solar?
You’ll give and receive multiple benefits by investing in solar energy. Let’s look at a few.
Contribute to a sustainable energy economy
By investing in solar energy, you will contribute to the entire world’s transformation to sustainable energy sources. Solar displaces fossil fuels as the world’s primary source of energy; contributing to this transformation is an incredible asset to your legacy and the planet’s future.
Improve the national job market
The second benefit of investing in solar is the positive way you will impact the job market, since workers are needed to do everything from planning solar plants to managing them. You will bring more jobs and self-sufficiency to the USA by moving it away from relying on other countries for energy.
If you don’t invest…
If you choose not to invest, you will not be directly contributing to the transformation of the environment. Instead, you will continue to support carbon being put into our atmosphere instead of bringing home jobs that would majorly benefit the economy. And, of course, you will miss out on the incredible possibilities for personal financial benefit.
