Solar Energy Trends to Watch Out for in 2022

Thanks to advances in technology and affordability, solar power is more popular than ever, and more people are beginning to realize that solar power can benefit them financially while making a difference. Solar offers an opportunity to make a positive impact on the world without changing your lifestyle.

For Florida residents, choosing to go solar helps preserve the natural beauty in our state and as we move further into 2022, we are excited to share some of the solar energy trends that we’re watching out for this year. Let’s go!

Power Companies Commit to Renewable Energy

Solar power and other renewable energy sources provide large amounts of electricity to consumers across the United States. In 2021 alone, renewable energy usage increased by 28%, and it is forecasted to rise again in 2022.

48 major power suppliers in the United States have committed to cutting their carbon emissions by 2050, and in many cases, the goal is to reach “net-zero.” Though 2050 seems like a lifetime away, 2022 marks the starting point for many of these solar power and renewable energy initiatives.

Don’t wait for the power companies to catch up with green energy—take control of your energy bill and have Solar Bear Orlando install a residential solar power system today!

American Solar Energy Society to Address Economic Issues

When the American Solar Energy Society (ASES) hosts its conference in June of this year, they will discuss how to transition to solar power on a larger scale.

Beyond its environmental benefits, solar power is generally more affordable than it once was. Both businesses and homeowners alike can save substantially on energy costs over the lifespan of their system. In many cases, these returns are better than what one could get on the stock market. It is the goal of ASES to bring the opportunity to install solar to more people of all economic backgrounds.

The Society also plans to focus on the positive impact that solar power can have on communities around the world that are experiencing natural disasters. We look forward to hearing expert speakers explore the latest solar power trends!

Las Vegas Embraces Solar Power

No longer just Sin City, Las Vegas is taking advantage of their ample sunshine in the desert and becoming a SUN city! MGM Resorts plans to build a Mega Solar Array that will use 640 acres of solar panels to generate 90% of the daytime power that its 13 Vegas strip properties need.

In total this solar array will produce the same amount of power that is used by 27,000 residential homes. This is also the second investment in solar power by MGM, and we are hoping that it will encourage other resorts and business owners to switch to renewable energy in 2022 as well.

If you stay at the Aria or Bellagio Resorts, you can appreciate knowing that your stay is powered by the sun every day!

Residents and Businesses are Empowered by Solar

One of the continuing trends in solar power that we expect to see more of in 2022 is the installation of on-site solar systems that provide freedom from utility companies. With the cost of fuel rising all the time, it’s no wonder that so many people are switching to solar.

You could benefit from energy bill savings of at the very least 60%, and when the solar system is paid off, you could enjoy free energy production for decades.

Switching to solar is a simple way to take control of your energy bills while making an impact on our planet and our beautiful state of Florida. In 2021, homeowners switched to solar power in record numbers, and we expect to see that trend continue into 2022.

Switch to Solar

Florida is called the “Sunshine State” for a reason! Take your energy into your own hands and make the switch to solar today! Not only will you enjoy lower energy costs, but you will be making a difference in your very own community.
