Benefits of a Solar Electric System

Homeowners across the Sacramento area are switching to solar. Here’s why:

Offset (Or Even Eliminate) Electricity Bill
First and foremost, homeowners who go solar can expect significantly lower (or even eliminated) electricity bills.

Provide Clean Energy Year-Round
Solar systems help offset your consumption of traditional fossil fuels like oil and gas, allowing you to enjoy the benefits of clean, renewable energy. Solar systems can provide power all year long, even during the colder months of the year.

Boost Your Home’s Value
In addition to lowering your monthly bills, a new solar system can increase the resale value of your home. It’s an investment for the present and for the future when you resell your home.

Low-to-No Maintenance
Once installed, solar systems require very little upkeep in comparison to conventional energy systems. You can expect to save time on maintenance phone calls as well as money on tune-up visits.

We’ll Help Make Solar Affordable!

At Brower, our team is committed to making solar system installs affordable and cost-effective. We’ll work with you to help you take advantage of any available tax and rebates. Some of the most frequently-used rebates include:

Federal Investment Tax Credit (ITC) for Solar
From now through the end of 2019, installing a new solar system qualifies you for a 30% investment tax credit. Between 2019 and 2022, the credit is set to gradually decrease (to 26%, 22%, and eventually to 10%). Get started on your install in 2016 to enjoy all the benefits of the 30% tax credit!

PACE Financing
Property-Assessed Clean Energy (PACE) financing allows homeowners to make energy-efficient upgrades to their homes, including solar system installations, for no money down. PACE programs provide 100% upfront financing, and homeowners repay the cost of the upgrade on their property tax bill over a specified payback period. At Brower, we partner with CaliforniaFIRST, HERO, mPower, and Ygrene, all of which offer PACE.
