SOLAR BENEFITS

Economic, Environmental and Energy Self-Reliance
Economic Benefits
  • Costs are lower than ever, making solar significantly more affordable!
  • Homeowners and businesses may qualify for a 30% Federal Tax Credit
  • Solar increases value of residential and commercial properties
  • Businesses can depreciate solar on a 5-year accelerated schedule
  • Cost-effective crystalline panels have been used for over 60 years. Most “new” technologies are not cost effective, and lack field-tested life cycles.

Environmental Benefits

  • Solar power reduces your carbon footprint and contributes to a healthy environment
  • A typical 3.8 kW system prevents more than 5 tons of CO2 from entering the atmosphere, equivalent to planting over an acre of trees each year

Energy Self-Reliance

  • Solar electricity reduces the need to send power long distances over transmission lines
  • Solar installations generate electricity at the same location the power is used
  • Solar lightens the load on an already overburdened grid, providing efficiency and energy security
  • Solar gives control over electricity bills, locking in your electricity costs for 25+ years
  • Solar transforms energy expenses into a clean power source that is a fixed asset
  • Bottom line: Solar helps control costs, manage energy risk, and increase cash flow
