Spring is here, and many Northern California residents are starting projects around their homes. For some, this may just be deep cleaning and organizing or minimizing their possessions, while others are getting busy building outdoor patios or tackling their landscaping. If you’re looking for an update that will have both immediate and long-term impact for you, your family, and your home, then it’s time to go solar.
Why Should I Install a Solar PV System?
Spring is one of the best times to install a home solar system. With the heat of summer right around the corner, going solar now can truly help you to see a marked difference from the previous year’s bills. The benefits of installing a solar PV system include:
Lowered Electricity Bills
Using the sun’s energy to power your home will reduce your monthly bills. Depending on the size of your system you might even produce more power than your home needs, allowing you to sell the excess to the utility company.
Affordability Through Financing & Tax Credits
Many homeowners are concerned with the investment required to go solar. Fortunately, there are multiple ways of making installing solar for your home affordable. With financing, leasing, and purchase power agreements (PPAs) you can make sure your budget matches your home’s solar needs.
Additionally, when you purchase a solar system for your home, you’ll receive a 30% federal tax credit on the next year’s tax returns. This means that 30% of your investment will be directly returned to you during tax season.
A Greener Home
As a region, Northern California promotes a green lifestyle and going solar will help your personal efforts to preserve the environment. Since solar energy is renewable and clean, you’ll cut down on your carbon footprint significantly.
Increased Home Resale Value
Installing solar now will help you regardless of whether or not you’re even considering selling your house. However, by adding solar, if and when you decide to put your home on the market, it will be valued higher. Solar PV systems are attractive to homebuyers and can make the difference when you’re looking for to sell your home faster and for more money.
