Sun Smart US - The Three Models of Energy Cost


1. Reduced Utility Costs

Utility costs are expected to rise over the next 5 to 10 years. Solar is a secure investment that reduces your exposure to rising energy prices.

2. Lock In Your Electricity Cost

Having Solar System allows you to predict your energy costs, insulating you from rising cost of utility rates.

3. Tax Incentives and Rebates

Federal and local rebates can reduce your initial costs by 50% or more. Primary incentive is a 30% federal tax credit offered by the EPA and Department of Energy . The credit allows you to claim 30% of the cost as a tax credit for the year you installed it. That amount is taken directly off your tax payment. Rebates are still available at some locations!

4. Reduce Carbon Footprint

Most of the power we currently use comes from coal-fired and natural gas power plants. Solar energy not only reduces your electric bill but it reduces your carbon footprint.

5. Reliability

With very few moving parts, a solar installation operates reliably for long periods of time. Most solar panels and Inverters have a guarantee of 25 years and a life expectancy of over 30 years.

6. Increase Property Value

Installing Solar System increases the value of a house by 13%. It does make a difference when you’re trying to sell a home. When you add solar power you add long-term value to your home.
