Solar costs have dropped so much that today it’s possible to generate all or most of a home’s electricity – for decades to come – for a bout the purchase of a new economy car.
This same is true for many businesses as well as it has become extremely affordable thanks to the extension of the Federal Tax Credit, utility rebate offerings, continuous pushes by government for sustainability.
Don’t miss out on this great opportunity to take advantage of many of these incentives as well as financing options.
Now’s The Time
There has probably never been a better time to switch to solar. Thirty-one states, including Missouri, has regulations that are solar-friendly enough (and the fact that electricity rates are high enough) to make solar financially attractive.
Last December, Congress extended generous federal tax credits on solar projects through 2021. Previously, these were set to expire at the end of this year.
Those who want to wait on the sidelines for further price reductions could be disappointed; the cost of solar panels has started to plateau and, while installation labor and other soft costs continue to fall, the phasing out of state tax incentives and utility rebates and grants has largely offset those savings.
Adding an element of urgency to the equation are proposals in a number of states that would radically shrink the utility-bill savings of switching to solar power. Generally speaking, existing solar customers haven’t been subject to those changes, getting your deal done now, before new regulations are implemented could save you hundreds of dollars each year.
While it can be easy to put things off, especially solar and energy efficient projects for your business, this is something that shouldn’t be put on the back burner.
As mentioned previously, energy prices are increasing and solar projects have never been cheaper thanks to certain incentives and rebates, but this won’t last long.
