Benefits of Solar For Your Home

Solar Energy Makes Financial Sense

Lower Your Energy Bill

By installing a solar system, you become your own energy provider, reducing electricity costs for the next 25+ years. Most utility companies will track your electricity generation through net metering and should credit you for the excess solar power you produce.

Over the past five years, the cost of electricity has risen on average 5% nationwide each year. Solar power can help offset these increasing costs. By producing your own electricity, you:

  • Gain financial security by increasing energy independence
  • Reduce your exposure to rapidly-accelerating utility costs

Increase the value of your property

A solar system is a home improvement that can reduce your energy costs and should increase the value of your home.

  • Investments in energy efficiency are traditionally valued based on how quickly the investment pays for itself
  • This investment in solar for your home adds value to your property - according to the National Appraisal Journal, every $1 saved in annual utility bills adds roughly $20 to your home's resale value

It's more affordable than you might think

The size and cost of your solar installation depends on your electricity bill and energy savings goals.

  • Solar systems don't necessarily need to offset 100% of your energy needs - partially offsetting your electric bills will still generate savings for your home
  • In some cases, a home's solar system has been able to generate twice as much savings as the installed cost was to the homeowner, over the lifetime of the solar system

Current incentives lower the cost even further

With new federal, state, local and utility incentives, solar is more affordable than ever before. The federal tax credit for residential installations reduces your upfront cost by 30% through 2016. In certain states where incentives apply, you can get up to 80% of your system funded by the government.

How Solar Works

Solar is Simple!

Exciting and virtually maintenance-free.

After all, the energy source (sunlight) is reliable, locally available, and always free. In fact, did you know that in roughly 40 minutes, the sun sends to the earth's surface about as much energy as the earth's population would use in a year?

How does it work?

A solar electric system has just a few components - photovoltaic (PV) panels (they collect the sun's energy), an inverter (which converts the sun's energy to usable electricity), and possibly racking, which attaches the solar panels to your home's roof. Your solar system is connected to the local utility grid, which stores the solar power you generate.

Your solar system is connected to the local utility grid, which stores the solar power you generate.

During the day, the photovoltaic panels capture the sunlight... and the inverter converts it to usable electricity. The energy you produce on any given day, and that you don't use, goes back to the utility grid. At night, or when the sun isn't shining, you will use electricity from the connected utility. In most locations, utility companies are required to credit you for excess power production your solar system generates. By properly sizing your solar system to cover your electricity usage, you can reduce or even virtually eliminate your utility bill.

How does it work?

Photovoltaic panels convert light (photo) into electricity (volt). The hard panels absorb sunlight, allowing the electrons to flow through the semiconductor material to generate electricity.

Be Green. Save Green.

Solar has never been more affordable than it is today

The Federal government is offering a 30% income tax credit through 2016, and in many areas, state, local, and utility incentives are also available.

Available Financing Options to Consider

Cash:

Take your Green and GO Green! Purchase and own your system with available cash. This form of ownership typically has the strongest positive cash flow over the long term. The net out of pocket costs are a fraction of the installed price because available incentives significantly reduce the total cost of ownership.

Same-As-Cash Loan:

Our contractors have the ability to offer you a 12 month same-as-cash option that will bridge the time needed to receive incentive payments and tax credits. This option is often combined with a home equity line of credit (HELOC) where the interest can be tax deductible.

Solar Leases:

Prefer low monthly payments? Then a solar lease could be an ideal financing option. A third party financing company owns the solar system and takes advantage of all incentives and tax benefits while you receive a lower, and more predictable, rate for electrical power over a long period of time. Low monthly payments allow you to conserve cash by paying for your solar system over 5, 10 or more years. And best of all, once your lease is paid, you enjoy free solar electricity for the remaining life of your solar system.

Power Purchase Agreement (PPA):

Solar power purchase agreements are generally made between a third-party financing organization and a homeowner. The third party owns the solar system and takes advantage of all incentives and tax benefits while the solar system host receives a lower, and more predictable, rate for electrical power over a long period of time. IPPs can obtain credits and even low-cost financing for the systems under provisions passed as part of the stimulus package, the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009.

I used Hunters Roofing to install a new flat roof on my house. They removed the old roof and installed the new one in 2 days. They were professional and punctual. They had the best price for the quality of the materials and workmanship provided. I would definitely recommend them to all my friends and family.
