Why Go Solar?
There are many reasons why our customers choose to harness the sun’s energy to power their homes or businesses. Many want to save money for years to come. Others want to lower or even eliminate their dependence on fossil fuels.
Eliminate or Dramatically Lower Electric Bills
Electricity bills are a major expense for California home and business owners, especially in Northern California. Solar system owners enjoy decades of significantly lower electricity bills, or even no electricity bills at all, over the system’s 25 to 30–year lifecycle.
In many cases, a solar system can produce all the electricity your home uses, eliminating energy bills altogether.
This means that the solar system produces as much electricity as your property consumes over the course of the year. Solar photovoltaic (PV) systems also protect your home or business from rising electricity costs by tapping a free and abundant source of energy.
A Safe, High-Return Investment
Many California solar systems have a return on investment that rivals traditional investments. This is because of the substantial cost savings from going solar. The solar equipment we install exceeds traditional investments.
Tax Credit Saves 30 Percent
There is a federal tax credit available to homeowners and businesses for 30 percent of the qualified expenses of solar energy systems. These expenses include labor, project preparation, and system equipment and components.
A federal tax credit is different from a tax write-off and is more valuable to the taxpayer. A tax credit is a dollar-for-dollar reduction in federal income taxes owed. Currently, this solar tax credit is set to expire at end of 2021, so now is the best time to go solar. We also offer additional financing options to make your upgrade as economical as possible.
Increase Your Energy Independence
Many property owners find great fulfillment in generating clean, renewable energy on their properties. Tapping abundant solar energy means increasing your energy independence and reducing dependence on foreign sources of energy (as well as the pollution associated with fossil fuel extraction and transportation).
Did you know that the average household emits a total of 20 metric tons of carbon pollution each year, according to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)? Buildings alone account for nearly 35 percent of carbon emission in the US.
Many of our customers choose solar energy because of concern for climate change and the environmental issues associated with dirty sources of power. Each household that goes solar reduces household carbon emissions by replacing fossil fuel consumption with renewable energy, creating a cleaner environment.
