Maximizing the value of the returns of your hard work is important. Why earn a one percent return from a traditional savings account when you realize a significantly higher yield by investing in solar?
Solar panels are a wise investment that will deliver returns for years to come. Whether you purchase or select the financing option that is right for you, rest assured you will benefit from superior, affordable energy output for years to come.
It may surprise you to know that another dramatic change in the solar industry is not only the advancement of the technology but also the affordability and the solutions we can offer. This is in large part due to steady increases in volume, and the changing landscape of solar financing.
The average return on investment on a solar system is between eight and 10 percent—greater than a savings account and more stable than the stock market. Of course, as with most of what we purchase, you’ll get your best dollar for dollar solution with a cash purchase. That has not changed.
However, if cash flow does not permit or if you have other places for your disposable revenue, we have great choices that will make a whole lot of sense. Especially when compared to your monthly electricity bills.
Always insist on high quality panels and products,
*(We use only SolarWorld - made in the USA performance that has been proven time and again for more than 35 years.)
Many other private lenders offer attractive lease options for residential solar systems as well. But buyer beware: all solar is not created equal. Some may claim that all panels are the same and try to steer you to lower quality modules made overseas.
Lower quality modules deliver lower performance..
The long term financial savings of investing in solar power can be quite significant.
System paybacks are shorter than ever, financed systems yield positive cash flows, there is a high annual rate of return compared to other popular investments.
The cost of PV systems has come down drastically over the last 20 years and they are now often the most cost effective especially due to the high cost of connecting to local utilities.
Most of the utility companies in California offer solar rebates that are based on the estimated performance of the home solar system. The utility company calculates the estimated production of the system and gives the homeowner a one-time payment for 20 years of production.
California is striving to create megawatts of new solar-generated electricity, moving the state towards a clean energy future. And all of us can take a part in it.
Join the thousands of customers who earn cash rebates for every watt of solar energy installed on homes, businesses, farms, schools, government, and non-profit organizations.
America generates 71% of its electricity using fossil fuels, and in the course of doing so, emits 10.3 million tons of sulfur dioxide, 3.9 million tons of nitrogen oxides, 2.4 billion tons of carbon dioxide , and over 50 tons of mercury a year. These emissions are toxic to human health and constitute a serious public health problem. A recent report by ABT Associates concluded that fine particle emissions from fossil fuel electricity generation kill around 30,000 Americans a year, a rate higher than those killed by drunk driving or homicide. In addition to the serious human health effects, emissions from fossil fuel electricity generation are the single largest contributor to global warming, responsible for 36% of the country's emissions of carbon dioxide.
Global warming is the most serious environmental threat facing the world today, with predicted effects ranging from a dramatic rise in sea levels, inundating many heavily-populated parts of the world; habitat changes that could wipe out entire ecosystems; and increasingly severe weather patterns that are anticipated to cost billions.
Generating your own electricity electricity reduces your consumption of fossil fuels, therfore minimizing the emission of pollutants and greenhouse gases.
Over the warranted lifespan of an average sized residential system - about 5KW, you can expect your system to offset 250,000 lbs of CO2 which is the principal contributor to global warming.
This is equivalent to offsetting over 150,000 miles driven by the average car, or planting 21,700 sq.ft of trees!!!
Considering selling your home soon? The American real estate market is increasingly leaning towards green and home buyers will pay more for energy saving features.
Solar systems not only eliminate your electrical bills, they also increase the value of your home without increasing property tax.
Systems installed between Jan. 1, 2009, and Dec. 31, 2016, are eligible for a tax credit equal to 30% of the cost.
To qualify, the system must supply electricity to a residence and meet local building codes.
The tax break can be applied to a solar-panel system installed at your primary residence or second home.
Take the credit for the tax year the system becomes operational, Use IRS Form 5695.
The credit can’t exceed the total amount owed in federal taxes for that year, but it can carry over to future years. Save receipts and certification statements.
