Until now, solar technology was a thing for utilitarians and climate change fanatics. Fast forward to today, where blackouts, solar mandates and wildfires are the new normal, it could be the most viable solution for every homeowner - and it comes with a ton of savings on your electric bill! Beyond the environmental impact of the renewable energy source, here is what you need to know.
● Take advantage of the 26 percent federal investment tax credit (ITC) before it’s gone! If you haven’t already, consider reaching out to a residential solar provider and install the project before December 2020. This will help ensure that you qualify for the maximum government break at 26 percent compared to 30 percent in 2019. If you miss the deadline, the credit break will drop to 20 percent in 2021 and decrease to zero percent in 2022.
● Add a home battery storage to your solar energy system. Till now, home battery storage likely did not cross your mind as a must have. Thanks to recent power shutdowns (also known as PSPS), you’ll likely opt for a full-service solar and storage energy system that meets your family’s needs. For a limited time only, install your battery and the government could pay you for it through rebate(s). Let’s see if you qualify for the Self-Generation Incentive Program (SGIP).
● Upgrade your home energy system with a generator. Homeowners in power shutdown and wildfire risk areas must now think about how best to protect their homes from scheduled blackouts. Don’t wait to be waitlisted, you’d be lucky if the utility provides you with advance notice. Talk to our energy advisors about rebate programs that may be available to you and get yours today.
● Residential solar and storage monitoring services available right at your fingertips. In the world of ever-growing technology, mobile apps and smart solutions such as our PoWr Guard, enable energy production monitoring and guarantee for homeowners. You’ll be able to check the health of your solar investment 24/7 and identify if it’s on or off.
Don’t wait until it’s too late and all the government incentives are gone. Quickly drop in your info here, and let’s find the right system for your home now.
