Go Solar with Restart Solar Simi Valley Today
In today's economy, everyone is looking for better ways to become environmentally friendly as well as wallet-friendly. One of the easiest ways to do both at the same time is to install solar panels in your home. The installation of solar panels allow you to take advantage of the renewable energy that the sun provides, reducing your dependence on grid electricity provided by the local utility board and saving you money as well as reducing your carbon footprint.
If you are still on the fence about the benefits of using solar energy in your home, here are some things that you should know about solar energy.
Why Solar Energy?
Solar power is a technology that has been around for many decades. However, few have tried to use it in their homes due to a lack of affordable solutions. However, thanks to advancements in technology, solar power is more affordable than ever, allowing you the ability to:
*Gain access to energy efficiency tax breaks - Depending on where you live, you can net both state and federal tax breaks by installing a solar power system in your home. Some states offer one time and recurring tax incentives on top of the federal onetime tax credits you can take advantage of. Contact your state government for more information regarding the availability of state tax incentives. For your federal tax benefit, you can take a credit equal to 30% of the purchase and installation cost of your solar system, with no upper limit, until 12/31/2016.
*Protect yourself again future energy cost increases- Anyone who has ever had the pleasure of paying for electricity through the local energy provider knows that the price you pay is subject to market fluctuations. These can result in significant increases to the amount you pay for power and can change without notice. Using solar power protects you from market instability and reduces your dependence on grid power.
*Increase the value of your home - Believe it or not, homes that have a solar power system installed are actually worth more than those that don't. This is a great benefit for those who think that they will be selling in a few years.
Cost vs. ROI of Solar Panels
One of the main complaints homeowners have had with regard to installing a solar power system in their homes is the initial cost of acquisition. In the past, solar systems have been quite expensive, both in terms of purchasing and installing the system as well as the cost to retrofit your home. However, technology has advanced to the point that solar systems are now quite affordable. In addition, many local governments have provided financial assistance to those looking to install a solar system in their homes. And, of course, you will realize energy cost savings over months that will ultimately result in the system paying for itself.
