Earn tax credits and rebates.

Many don't realize how big of a benefit this is, but our solar panels are actually paying us. To start, you will get 22 percent of total system costs back from equipment and installation as a federal income tax credit when you file your taxes. This means you would save $4,400 on a solar system worth $20,000. Combine this with state and local rebates and Solar Renewable Energy Credits (SRECs), and total costs can be cut in half. The SRECs are generated throughout the year, and you can sell them to utility companies, which generates a very impressive return on the initial investment.

Reduce or eliminate energy bills.

This one is pretty amazing. We live in Massachusetts, which has an average to low amount of sun, but it’s enough to power our house of three kids and two adults at net zero energy consumption. On warm spring days, we generate a lot more than we consume, and then we trade that with the utility. On hot summer days, when we run the air conditioning, or on cloudy days, we draw from the grid. Even if you live somewhere cloudy, such locations typically receive more than two hours of sunlight per day, while sunny locations receive an average of 5.5 hours of sunlight per day. Although sunny days will produce more solar energy, solar panels will continue to draw energy even when the weather is cloudy. Indirect, or diffused, sunlight will still help to power your home.

Start saving from day one.

Solar power offers long-term savings, because it’s basically free to capture the power of the sun. Solar panels significantly improve your resale value. According to research, most homeowners see a $5,911 resale value increase per installed kilowatt. That means if you install a 3.1 kilowatt system, you could improve your home’s resale value by nearly $18,000. Solar panels also extend the life of a roof, because they protect from the elements, such as rain, snow and debris. They make the house more energy-efficient in the summer because the hot sun is not beating down on the roof directly—it is instead being absorbed by the panels, keeping the house temperature lower.

Help the environment and help us all.

Solar power systems derive clean, pure energy from the sun. Installing solar panels on your home helps combat greenhouse gas emissions and reduces our collective dependence on fossil fuel. Traditional electricity is sourced from fossil fuels such as coal and natural gas. When fossil fuels are burned to produce electricity, they emit harmful gases that are the primary cause of air pollution and global climate change. Not only are fossil fuels bad for the environment, but they are also a finite resource. Renewable energy also improves public health. Coal and natural gas plants produce air and water pollution that is harmful to human health. But replacing fossil fuels with renewable energy sources, such as solar power, can reduce premature mortality as well as overall health care costs.

The Right Solar Panel Installation Can Help You Avoid Complete Power Outages

When your building is completely reliant on the electricity supplied by the power grid, it is also 100 percent susceptible to the power outages experienced by the grid. When the power goes out due to a storm, problem with the system or scheduled power grid maintenance, the building also loses power. However, if you have a solar panel installation that also has a battery system for power storage and use, you will not lose power during a power outage.

Attract Environmentally Conscious Residents, Employees and Clients

Saving the planet and reducing carbon footprints and fossil fuel consumption continues to grow with every generation. Installing solar panels can help you attract clients, customers, residents and employees who are environmentally conscious and wish to do business or work for companies that take the health of the planet seriously by reducing their reliance on non-renewable energy sources.

Reduce the Operating Expenses of Your Business

Whether you have solar panels with or without a battery backup system, you’ll save money on your energy bills. When you have a solar panel system that is connected to your meter and the utility lines, your solar panels produce power that is sent to the utility company. This reduces the amount of municipal power that your building receives and during low power usage times and high solar power generating times, your meter may even run backward. This is called net metering.

Better Control Your Future Energy Bills

Electricity costs are always rising. Average rates in the U.S. for commercial buildings is 7.05 cents per Kilowatt. As a business that uses lots of electricity to power equipment and interior and exterior lights, the best way to control your costs is to find alternative energy sources, like solar panels. Solar panels have a typical useful life of between 20 and 25 years. Imagine how much money you’ll save by generating your own power for the next two decades, especially when you consider all the electricity rate hikes that will occur between now and 2040.

Increase the Property Value of Your Business

Solar panels can increase your property’s value and help your building sell faster if you ever intend to sell your commercial, industrial or multi-unit residential property in the future. This is because energy-efficiency sells. When a building has solar panels, some or all of the energy needed by the building is produced by the panels. This means that the short and long-term operating expenses of your building are lower than comparable buildings that do not have solar panels installed on the roof.

Take Advantage of Tax Credits

Section 179 in the tax code currently allows businesses to deduct 100 percent of the costs of certain business equipment and building upgrades, which could include the installation of solar panels. The IRS also has a specific solar panel tax credit. For 2019, the tax credit is 30 percent of the cost of the panels and installation. In 2020, the credit is reduced to 26 percent. In 2021, the tax credit is 21 percent. For all years after 2021, the solar tax credit is 10 percent.

Take Advantage of SERCS

SERC stands for Solar Energy Renewable Credits. These are certificates that you sell your electric company for a certain amount of renewable energy. Typically the states that buy SERCS have a LTRRPP, which stands for Long-Term Renewable Resources Procurement Plan, and these plans typically state that the geographical location will produce a certain amount of power from renewable energy sources by X year.

Enjoy Low Maintenance, Reliable Energy

Modern solar panel systems are extremely low maintenance and very reliable. The average lifespan of a new solar panel system ranges between 15 and 25 years, depending on the type of panel. This means that once the system is plugged in and online, it will start producing power, and you won’t have to do much maintenance. You won’t even have to clean snow or ice off the panels, because the snow and ice will melt off the panels within a day or two of the storm.

Very little time off your busy schedule is needed to see if solar energy makes sense for you. Simply fill out the form, and we will have a design sent to your inbox shortly after. 

After you receive your design and review it, we can set up a virtual consultation to explain, in detail, your specific solar proposal.
