Solar Installation Incentives

By going solar, homeowners are able to take advantage of several incentives which can lower the cost of installing their solar panel system. Some of these incentives include reducing their electric bill, reducing their carbon footprint, and reducing their system cost with the federal solar tax credit. The federal tax credit is the most popular incentive to going solar, as it dramatically reduces the overall cost of solar, and helps contribute to a shorter payback period.
