Protect the environment by producing your own clean energy.
The fossil fuels that are most commonly used to generate electricity produce toxic emissions that pollute our environment and are thought to contribute to climate change. These sources are rapidly being depleted and will become increasingly expensive. Home solar power is a truly clean and renewable energy source.
Contribute to your own and national energy independence.
Solar panels for your home lets you produce and own your own power and reduce our country’s dependence on foreign fuel sources.
Reduce your electric bills.
With residential solar power you can greatly reduce or completely eliminate your electric bills. You own your home; with home solar power you can also own your power!
Protect against future utility rate increases.
In the Puget Sound area, utility rates have increased an average of 5% annually for the last five years. With power generation resources diminishing and demand rising, utility rates in many areas could triple over the next ten years!
Increase the value of your home with a solar power system.
Based on a 2015 study conducted jointly by U.S. Department of Energy’s Lawrence Berkley Laboratory and Sandia National Laboratories, the added values can be significant. The study found that for every watt of photovoltaic solar panels installed, $4 was added in real estate value. An average 6.5kW solar system could add up to $24,000 of value to your home.
Watch your meter spin backwards.
All solar electricity generated that is not used at time of generation will be fed back to the utility grid, so that your green power can be used by other people. During these times your utility meter will actually run backwards so that you are credited for this power via net metering.
Let the government help pay for your system.
Attractive financial incentives from the state and federal governments greatly reduce the cost of your home solar power system. A 26% Federal Tax Credit is available on the cost of the entire project including battery backup systems too. Washington State’s Incentive exempts solar projects (including battery backup) from sales tax.
