Case Study

Solar Panel Installation

Heather & John

Santa Rosa, CA

Located in beautiful Santa Rosa, CA Heather & John decided it was time to make the switch to solar roofing and lower their electric bill as well as reduce their carbon footprint. We were able to fit them with a 16 panel solar system that covered 99% of their electricity needs. Their system was custom made to fit their energy needs, using high efficiency, industry leading, solar electric panels. The 16 panel solar system is estimated to save them over $100,000 over the next 25 years, which equates to about $1,800 in the first year and trends upward! Needless to say, Heather & John are excited to have switched to renewable energy and look forward to the monthly, annual savings!

Solar Installation Incentives

The installation of a solar panel system comes with a variety of incentives. The main incentives include: a lower bill, a cleaner planet and a federal tax credit. The federal tax credit often dramatically reduces the cost of going solar, further encouraging the installation of home solar panel systems.

Increased Property Value

Property value instantly increases with the installation of solar panels. Solar panel systems typically can increase a property’s value by $6,000 times the size of the system. In this case, Heather & John have seen their homes value shoot up by almost $30,000! This increase is almost double what they paid for their solar roofing system after the federal tax incentive.

Savings Summary

Although going solar can seem expensive, the savings in the short-term, long-term, and the tax incentives make it affordable, if not cheaper than your current electric bill. By going solar, you are essentially switching your high electric bill for a more affordable solar bill. Once your solar roofing system is paid off, the savings are endless! As electricity rates continue to rise, the solar energy installation gives homeowners and business owners alike the peace of mind knowing they are no longer as affected by energy rate hikes.
