8 Reasons to Go Solar This Year
Homeowners throughout Southern California are choosing solar energy to power their homes and there’s never been a better opportunity than this year to become one of them! With an in-depth analysis you can start to lower your utility bills, making the most out of a solar system’s straightforward installation process and virtually no need for maintenance. On top of the ease of switching, a large federal tax credit will make upgrading to solar with SolReliable fit easily into your budget.
Take Advantage of Solar in 2016
There’s never been a better time to finally make the switch to solar energy for your home.
Solar Energy 30% Federal Tax Credit
The U.S. government is offering a federal tax credit of 30% of the cost of your home’s new solar photovoltaic (PV) system until the end of 2019. From that point, the tax credit will then gradually decrease over time (to 26%, 22%, and finally to only 10%), making today the best time to upgrade to solar.
If you purchase your solar system today, you’ll already receive your tax refund in April 2017, making the system that much more affordable. From Los Angeles to Glendale, Santa Monica and beyond, SolReliable wants our customers to start experiencing the full benefits of solar energy this year, making the most out of their investment immediately.
Get Grandfathered Into Net Metering 1.0
Net Energy Metering (NEM) is one of the main reasons to go solar. This allows you to connect your home’s solar system to the main power grid, drawing only the power you need and having the ability to sell any excess you may produce. However, very soon California will be making the switch to NEM 2.0, which reduces the benefits and increases costs. If you install a solar system in your home this year, you may still be able to take advantage of the prior version and be grandfathered into NEM 1.0 for the next 20 years.
Low Material Costs
Solar panels have never been as affordable or as efficient as they are now. With reduced material costs and increased productivity, you’ll be able to reap enormous rewards on your home’s solar system.
Rebates from Your Utility Company
The Los Angeles Department of Water and Power is still offering incentives to go solar. These incentives won’t last forever so investigate whether your utility provider is offering any rebates and be sure to get the most out of them today.
The Benefits of Switching to Solar
If you’re thinking about beginning to power your California home with clean, alternative solar energy, you should be aware of all the benefits you will receive. Apart from simply generating renewable power for the electricity needs of your home, these are some of the advantages you can expect once you make the switch:
Virtually No Required Maintenance
Once your solar PV system is installed by SolReliable, it requires little to no upkeep. This will save you money and time on maintenance appointments, while allowing you to generate electricity continuously.
Lowered or Eradicated Electricity Bills
Your solar panels will start generating clean electricity right away. SolReliable’s revolutionary analysis of your electricity usage can further reduce your needs through ENERGY STAR certified energy efficient home improvements. We will get you as close to a 100% utility bill reduction as possible. You’ll have a cleaner, greener home that saves you money and offers the highest return on investment.
Increased Home Resale Value
Homes with solar systems are attractive to potential homebuyers. Therefore, the return on investment with solar is high. With your new solar installation, if and when you decide to move, you can expect to sell your home for more.
Reduced Carbon Footprint
The ability of your solar system to generate clean energy, as opposed to fossil fuel-based methods, means you’ll be cutting back on your home’s carbon emissions.
