Save More With A 30% Tax Credit

As if lower utility bills weren’t incentive enough when you switch to Solar most people qualify for a 30% Tax Credit. This Federal Tax Credit may expire at soon so if you’re thinking about solar don’t wait until it’s too late and get stuck buying high-priced power from the utilities. This tax credit is paid in the year the system is installed and greatly enhances solar savings.

Increase Home Value

  • Having a residential solar energy system on your property is known as a capital improvement which adds to your property’s value. This means that you can potentially sell your home faster and for more than homes without solar. Your investment in efficient, clean solar power also adds to the tax basis of your home. If you sell the home, this tax basis investment can be deducted from the sales price, reducing the amount of the price counted as profit. This reduces the taxes taken from the sale and may be able to help you avoid capital gains taxes on appreciation.

Added Value & Lower Costs

Home buyers are willing to pay a premium for a home with a purchased solar installation. Why? Because a solar power system helps control electricity costs and provides savings over time. This increases the home’s value.
