Benefits of Solar Energy
The Benefits of Solar Are Undisputed!
There are several undisputed benefits of generating your own electricity using solar. Advances in solar photovoltaic (PV) technology and battery-based energy management systems have paved the way to make solar a viable option for most homes or businesses.
Simultaneous to equipment advances has been a substantial drop in the installation cost to the consumer. By combining drop-in prices and incentives such as tax credits, aggressive depreciation schedules, grant programs, and various financing options, solar has an attractive economic proposition.
- An immediate reduction or elimination of your electric utility bill.
- Pay yourself instead of paying the utility.
- Reduce your tax liability through federal and state tax credits and equipment depreciation.
- Reduce the cost of installation through grants and other incentive programs.
- Several financing options to minimize your upfront investment but still allow you to reduce the cost of your electricity. Residential, $0 down options, commercial leasing, Power Purchase Agreements for Government, and other not-for-profit entities are available.
