Yes! Solar Power Works Great In Seattle & Puget Sound Areas!
During the summer, the Pacific Northwest’s long, mild days are ideal for generating solar power and solar panels operate at greater efficiency in cooler climates. A solar system in the Puget Sound will produce 80% of the energy of an identical system in Los Angeles! Solar panels work on cloudy days too, even in the winter.
Germany receives less sunlight than the Seattle & Puget Sound region, yet it accounts for 13.5% of the world’s solar panel electric installations. Germany is expecting to be 100% green for its national energy usage by 2050. When Germany can produce that much solar energy with less sunlight, there is no reason not to go solar here in the Northwest.
Incentives Fuel Solar In Washington State
Washington State’s incentive program rewards homeowners 6.5% to 10.4% for going solar in the form of a sales tax exemption! For a typical sized system, this is a $2,000 incentive.
When you combine the State’s incentive program with Federal incentives, offsetting your electric usage, and locking in escalating utility rates, the Puget Sound area makes for a sound and secure green investment. Washington State also has some of the best solar financing available, such as our current summer solar loan featuring $0 down, $0 payments for 90 days with rates starting at 3.24%!
