A New Year's resolution is a tradition, in which a person resolves to continue good practices, change an undesired trait or behavior, to accomplish a personal goal, or otherwise improve their life. Most of the people review the way they spend money and decide to make clever decisions regarding their budget.
If saving money is part of your new year’s resolution, solar energy is a great option because it will help you on a monthly basis, and it will bring even more savings with time.
1st, You are going to save money
Energy prices are only going up. Invest in your home instead of your utility company. Have a Fixed Payment and put a stop to an uncertain energy future. PV Systems has a guaranteed return on investment. Your current electric bill does not.
2nd, You are adding value to your property
Today’s realtors are finding that homes and businesses that have Solar PV Systems installed are selling faster and for more money than other similar properties. Professional appraisers have estimated that for every $1 in savings generated by a Solar PV System, you can see up to $20 in increased property value! That means that a system that produces/saves $100 per month in electricity translates to a property value increase of $20,000!
3th, You are performing concrete actions for a positive impact on the environment
It’s no great secret embracing clean, reliable energy is critical if we are to tackle climate change. Having Solar Panels could be the equivalent of planting hundreds of trees per year, reducing millions of carbon footprint emissions and driving billions of miles.
4th, You can apply for Government Incentives
When you purchase a residential solar system, the federal government will give you a 26 percent tax credit, lowering the amount of taxes you owe by 26 percent of the cost of the solar system.
If you purchase a home solar system that costs $25,000, you can apply for a Federal Tax Credit to receive a credit of $6,500 when you file your personal federal income taxes the following year. This solar incentive is different from a cash rebate, which gives you money back after filing for the rebate.
2020 is the last year that is going to be 26 percent. The federal solar investment tax credit for residential rooftop solar is set to expire in 2021. There has never been a better time to go solar - click here to find out if solar by Clever Energy is right for you!
