Imagine your Alameda County home as it is, but your electricity bills have vanished. Picture getting a huge tax credit back from the federal government. Finally, envision the confidence and independence that comes from relying on your own power source. With a solar energy system from West Coast Solar, all of this is possible. We want to help you take control of your energy usage and live as independently as possible.
Solar Power Reduces Electricity Bills
One of the biggest expenses Alameda County homeowners face is paying electricity bills month after month. With a solar power system, owners can spend decades enjoying lower—if not nonexistent—electricity bills. As long as your solar system generates more electricity than you use in a year, you won’t have to pay any electricity bills. If you generate more energy than you use annually, you can gain credit from your utility company for selling energy to them. However, off-grid solar power systems simply store the excess energy in a battery bank for later usage.
Investing in Energy Independence
A lowered power bill isn’t the only benefit that can come from a solar system installation. Solar power is an investment and a great one at that. Did you know that there is a federal tax credit available for 26 percent of the qualified solar panel expenses? That includes the cost of labor, preparation, and the parts of the system. This isn’t just a tax write-off; it’s a dollar-for-dollar reduction in your federal income taxes. However, this is set to end in 2021. If you want to receive the full benefits of this tax credit, give West Coast Solar a call so we can start on your project immediately.
The financial savings is hard to beat, but we believe that many of our solar system owners are excited at the prospect of independence. No more relying on foreign sources of energy, no more contributing to the pollution, and no more spending those hard-earned paychecks on power! You will produce your own power with a solar power system from West Coast Solar.
It Pays Off In More Than One Way
In regard to solar panels and clever energy alternatives, the more the merrier. While we’re conscious that it’s not always, initially, a super affordable way to access better energy, there’s a couple of ways that solar panel investments can pay off. One out-of-the-box method is to sell the excess solar energy that you produce back to the grid. You’ll be able to pass on the monthly check you’re writing them, and start cashing theirs.
All you need is a grid-connected system that includes power conditioning equipment, the proper safety equipment according to code and the meters and instruments to measure how much you’re selling back.
