Residential Solar

Residential solar is a great way to lower or eliminate your electric bill and protect yourself against rising electric costs in the future. A growing number of states offer solar power incentives, usually in the form of solar rebates. The amount of the solar rebate varies from state to state, but in most cases it will cover a significant portion of your solar system installation cost. In addition, the US government currently offers residential solar system owners a one time 30% Federal Investment Tax Credit.

State rebates pay for a significant portion of your solar system installation cost. However, rebates are always decreasing as popularity increases.
