If you have been considering using solar energy at home, there is no reason to put it off. Take a little time to research how much money you can save by using renewable solar energy at your home or office.
Solar electricity can save you money, because any extra solar power that the panels on the top of your house generate will be sold to the local utility company, saving you money on your overall bills. You can feel great about reducing your carbon footprint and enjoy the financial benefits as well.
2016 is a great year to start your solar installation project, because the 30% federal tax benefit that is currently in place is set to expire in 2017. There is a chance the tax benefits will be renewed, which would be great for our country, our economy and clean energy industry and jobs. However, the only way to be absolutely certain that you will receive the 30% tax credit is to finish your solar installation in 2016.
The tax benefits that exist right now make this the perfect time to add solar energy to your home. The savings provided through the tax credit right now bring your initial costs down, and then you will see the long-term benefits of solar energy for years to come. You will even see a return on your investment if you sell your home eventually, because home buyers are excited about the option of solar energy.
