Why Go Solar?
Savings Every Month – Your solar electric system powers your home so you can use considerably less electricity from the public utility and you may even be able to sell excel power back to the electric company.
Local Rebates, State Deductions and Federal Tax Credits – You may be able to offset as much as 65% of the cost of installing solar power in your home with rebates from your local power company, deductions available on your state income tax and refundable tax credits available from the federal government. Check our out Tax Credits & Rebates section for current offers.
Financing Available – Check out Financing Options page to learn how you can install solar energy in your home or commercial building with little or no out of pocket expenses and start reaping the benefits of solar energy today!
Protection Against Electricity Rate Hikes – Imagine that you had been able to lock in automobile gas prices in 2004. You’d be paying less than $2 a gallon not only today, but also for decades to come. With every gas price increase, you’d be saving even more money. That’s exactly what you’re doing with the cost of electricity when you install a solar electric system.
Because solar installation is a fixed cost, savings increase as utility rates rise. Essentially, you’re building in a hedge against future rate increases. And rising utility rates are definitely something you can count on, especially considering that they’ve gone up faster than inflation for the past 30 years. In 2006, some states saw the highest tier residential rates jump as much as 55% in just one year.
Increased Property Values – A solar electric system can increase a home or building’s value by reducing its annual operating costs.
Lower Dependence on Fossil Fuels & Foreign Countries – By switching to solar electricity, we can help alleviate our dependence on foreign sources of energy. Solar electricity is used where it is made, so there are no transportation or delivery costs. Solar electricity’s price stability is also independent of the effects of natural disasters, foreign political instability or trade disputes. The supply chain extends simply from the sun to your roof.
