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. No matter your reason for going with green energy, West Coast Solar can help design, plan, and install your home solar power system. Our goal is to make solar simple so you can enjoy financial, environmental, and familial benefits.
Tired of High Electricity Bills?
Electricity bills are a major expense for California home and business owners, especially in Northern California. Solar energy system owners will enjoy decades of significantly lower electricity bills or even eliminate their electricity bill altogether. With a lifespan of 25-30 years, a solar power system offers more than just clean energy; it saves you money.
In many cases, a solar system can produce all the electricity your home will need to function properly, eliminating your energy bill altogether. In some cases, you can even gain credits from your electric company. The American renewable energy and efficiency act protects the homeowner from utility companies acting fraudulently with the energy they’ve purchased from the homeowner’s solar power production.
Not only can you eliminate your energy bill, but you can get paid by the utility company, which means if at any point your solar power system needs maintenance or accrues damage from a natural disaster, you can use the credit towards utility grid energy use.
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 in that the initial investment is typically paying for itself within ten years, and then the following 15-20 years are at a profit.
What is the estimated return on investment when it comes to a home solar power system? Our team usually starts with your current electricity bill: What if it disappeared? After your initial investment pays for itself, you can see significantly reduced, eliminated, or even credited electric bills. If you look at any moderate to long-term investment, solar power is near the top of the list when it comes to homeownership.
Tax Credit Saves 30 Percent
The Solar Investment Tax Credit (ITC) is available to homeowners and businesses for up to 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 into abundant home 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). Whether you stay tied into the utility grid or you go completely off-grid with your solar power lifestyle, West Coast Solar can help you decide which solar option is best for you.
Did you know that the average household emits nearly 20 metric tons of carbon pollution each year? 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 traditional sources of power. Each household that goes solar reduces household carbon emissions by replacing fossil fuel consumption with renewable energy, creating a cleaner environment and better future for their family.
