Why Go Solar?

In this age of high energy demand and uncertainty, renewable energy will save you money, add value to your home or business, and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Consider solar energy as a wise long-term investment. Power from the sun is always free, regardless of electricity rate increases, fluctuating oil and natural gas prices or volatility on Wall Street.

In the industry, we have seen prices on solar components fall dramatically in recent years. These lower prices combined with the 30% Federal Tax Credit from the 2009 Stimulus Package and annual production credits through Washington State, there has never been a better time to invest in solar energy for your home or business!

A Strong Financial Investment

Washington has long been an advocate of sustainability and energy efficiency. To help its residents and businesses take advantage of the state’s solar and other renewable energy resources—which include wind and geothermal—the state and many local utilities offer residents and businesses numerous incentives, including tax breaks, net metering, and production credits. There are currently several great incentives for solar which provide an 4-6 year break even point for typical residential and commercial systems.

Add Value to Your Home

If you are trying to increase your home value or have a competitive edge in the marketplace, consider solar! Home values rise an average of $20 for every $1 reduction in annual electric bills, according to the US Department of Housing and Urban Development. Another report by the National Renewal Energy Laboratory concluded that solar homes sell 20% faster and for 17% more than equivalent non-solar homes.

Benefit the Environment

Solar photovoltaic systems produce clean energy directly from the sun. When you install solar panels on your home, you help offset greenhouse gas emissions and reduce dependence on fossil fuels. Solar also provides electricity at the source, instead of depending on it being generated hundreds of miles away at the nearest power plant or hydroelectric dam.
