Now prices are lower than ever, making it a great time to install a solar system. Since 1998, the cost of a photovoltaic solar system has fallen every year, according to the National Renewable Energy Laboratory. In addition, there is a federal tax credit available for 30% of the total cost of your residential solar system.
There are many longlasting benefits to a solar electricity:
- Generates renewable energy for a cleaner environment
- Cuts utility bills
- Qualifies for a 30% federal tax credit and other incentives
- Increases the value of your home or business
- Taps a limitless free power source
- Avoids use of fossil fuels
- Provides energy throughout the year, even in the winter
Reliable photovoltaic systems generate electricity for your Sacramento-area home or business. Rain or shine, day or night – you will have power.
It is usually most cost effective for solar properties to be connected to the power grid, feeding excess power on sunny days and taking power from the grid during the night or on cloudy days. This eliminates the cost of battery banks and allows a higher level of system efficiency. With net metering, your investorowned electric utility will actually compensate you for excess power supplied to the grid, allowing you to sell electricity to the power company.
Recent technology advances make solar panels more efficient than ever, taking up less space to generate more energy. Solar panels and other components come with competitive warranties and are designed to last for many years.
Federal Tax Credit Saves Money
There is a federal tax credit of 30% of the qualified expenditures for solar system on homes and businesses in the U.S. Qualified expenses include labor, site preparation, and solar components. This tax credit only applies for purchased systems and can not be applied to leased solar systems.
A tax credit differs from a tax writeoff and is more valuable to the taxpayer. It is a dollar-for-dollar reduction in income taxes owed. This 30% tax credit is available through 2019. In 2020, that credit will drop to 26% and decrease to 22% in 2021, before being completely eliminated at the end of the year.
