Future Power Rates vs Solar Chart

If your current utility cost per kilowatt is $.34 from your provider you will save $35,000 to $68,000 over 25 years.

Owning a solar system vs. getting power from the utility company can be compared to the difference between renting or owning a home. When the solar system is paid off you will have free electricity.

Adding solar can increase the value of your home.
That’s pretty cool huh.

Multiple studies have shown that homes with solar panel systems are valued and sold at prices above similar homes in their area.

On average, solar panels raise a home’s value by 4.1% across the U.S., according to a new Zillow analysis of homes across the country. In CA that’s about $21,000 on the average price of a home being $533,000.

In a state like California, for example, a small 3.1-kilowatt (kW) system can add an average of $18,324 to the value of a medium-sized home. The property value advantages of solar energy only increase as you scale up. Installing 5kW of solar panels adds an average of $29,555 to the retail value of a medium-sized home.

Eligibility for the solar tax credit.

Shape
Only individuals and businesses who own their solar power systems are eligible for the solar tax credit (financing is a type of ownership).
Shape
A tax credit is a dollar-for-dollar reduction of your actual tax bill. If you have a $1,000 federal tax credit and owe $3,000 of federal income taxes, you can reduce your payment by $1,000, thereby owing only $2,000.
Shape
It is worth noting that a tax credit differs from a tax deduction.
Shape
A tax deduction, on the other hand, reduces how much of your income is subject to taxes. If you fall into the 22% tax bracket, a $1,000 deduction saves you $220.

Return On Environment

Edison said it best when he was talking to Henry Ford and Harvey Firestone in 1931

We are like tenant farmers chopping down the fence around our house for fuel when we should be using Nature’s inexhaustible sources of energy–sun, wind and tide. I’d put my money on the sun and solar energy. What a source of power! I hope we don’t have to wait until oil and coal run out before we tackle that.
