At first blush, it sounds like a pipedream. Can you really save substantial money by opting for a Pleasanton solar solution?
You probably already know that solar can reduce your reliance on the grid. It thus stabilizes your energy bill and boosts the long-term value of your home.
But two big new changes are making the solar investment wiser than ever.
1. The government has rolled out new California and federal tax incentives for Brentwood solar installation.
The federal and CA governments offer substantial solar tax credits for homeowners who opt for alternative energy, like solar. You can enjoy a federal tax credit of 30% at least until the end of 2016. California also offers incentives like faster permits, money back, and reductions in fees.
2. Electricity prices are skyrocketing.
From 2000 to 2006, electricity prices jumped by 2.5% per year on average. That spike trumped inflation, which means that electricity has gotten more expensive than other commodities.
If buy from the grid (like most people do), you’re going to feel it in your pocketbook more and more as the years go by, if this trend continues. On the other hand, if you opt for solar now, you can liberate yourself from the volatility of the coal and natural gas markets – as well as help the environment, reduce your burden on the community, and enjoy more peace of mind.
We at Save a Lot Solar know that installing a solar array is neither cheap nor simple. However, we can help you figure out whether now is the right time for you to make the leap – and figure out what incentives you might be able get. We can also discuss alternative ways that you can cut costs and make your home more energy efficient.
