3 Reasons Why You Should Switch to Self-Sustaining Energy

Breaking the shackles of the large power companies is surely a daunting task. Through relentless hike-ups in price to dealing with outages in your area, these power companies cause nothing but headaches. Though the cost of installing solar energy has dropped nearly 70% in the last decade, only a mere 4% of homes in the United States are powered by solar.

Our goal here at GridSwitch is ensuring that you are well-versed and educated on the realities of self-sufficient energy. Owning your own efficient power source at a cost that beats your monthly power bill seems like a fantasy, doesn't it?

1. Ditching the Big Bills

Most people don't do any research into what they're exactly paying on a monthly basis when it comes to their electric bills. For most, it is simply a quick glance and entering their payment details.

Our MicroGrids are a one time investment for a bill that could cost you up to 90% less than what you're used to paying. Not only are you making a switch in price, you're making a switch in predictability. When you're dealing with a large scale energy company pumping power out to your whole city, there are too many unpredictable factors that unfairly fluctuate your monthly cost.

Once you move off-the-grid with your own personal system, you release the worry of hoping your power company did everything right on their end.

2. Blackout Protection

Don't you love when your power goes out? Don't you love it even more whenever you call your power company and they tell you they're "figuring it out and it should only be a few hours?

Wait, did you say no? You probably did, mainly because that scenario is far from enjoyable.

Instead of having to pull out the flashlight, your own energy source will keep your life up and running. Power outages make you realize how much you're at the mercy of others keeping your assets in order. With your own MicroGrid, you can say goodbye to relying on others!

3. A Brighter Future (No pun intended)

Get it? Because lights are bright? Anyways...

A popular conversation over the last decade is that of questioning the future of our planet. As we all learned in middle school, a continued reliance on fossil fuels isn't a good thing for the environment. MicroGrid energy is clean energy.

Many public officials are worried about what the Earth will look like by 2050 if we don't figure out a solution to treat our planet better. A lot of us wonder what we can do to create a better world for the next generations of our family.

Here's to a future of blue skies, fresh air, and lower electric bills!
