Thinking about making the switch to solar in Pennsylvania? Going solar is a great way to help the environment and save money! Making the switch is now easier and more affordable than ever before.
By going solar, you provide your home with clean energy produced by the sun! Solar energy allows you to stop relying on fossil fuels for power. Most electricity is created by burning fossil fuels which releases harmful carbon into the atmosphere. Switching to solar ensures that you do your part to help the planet!
On top of helping the planet, going solar also helps your wallet. Significantly reduce or even eliminate your electric bill when you go green! Pay fixed monthly payments instead of rising and unpredictable utility bills.
Pennsylvania has a net metering program that helps save solar system owners even more! Net metering allows you to send excess energy produced by your system back to the power grid in exchange for credits. These credits are saved for use on days when your system doesn’t produce as much energy as you need. In other words, even when the sun isn’t shining, you will still be saving!
Federal and State Incentives
Going solar is now more affordable than ever! To help homeowners make the switch, the federal government offers a 26% tax credit off of the total system cost.
Some states are required to generate a certain amount of electricity from renewable resources. Pennsylvania is one of those states! As a result, Pennsylvania has a Solar Renewable Energy Certificate (SRECs) incentive program. SRECs allows homeowners to sell certificates for energy to their utility company as proof of clean energy production.
Philadelphia encourages residents and businesses to go solar with the Philadelphia Solar Rebate Program. The city offers rebates of $0.20 per watt for residential projects and $0.10 per watt for commercial projects to those who quality.
