Solar is an Investment
Solar can save you money. Solar power can be harnessed to support any type of energy needed to power a home or building. You can “own” the energy at a fixed rate instead of “renting” it from a power utility company at fluctuating and increasing rates.
Solar Saves the Environment
Because 85% of all US power comes from burning fossils, much of which comes from unstable priced foreign oil, anytime you lessen your dependency on utility power you’re helping our country reduce its reliance on energy from energy sources that are environmentally-unfriendly and financially unstable.
Solar Increases the Value of Your Property
Solar is increasing in popularity, making homes and businesses with solar more desirable. The benefits of solar are appealing to prospective buyers, giving an advantage to properties with solar.
Tax Credits & Rebates
You’re probably already familiar with the idea that solar power saves you money on your electric bill. By installing solar panels and utilizing the power of the sun, we are no longer required to use traditional methods (AKA, renting energy from a utility company).
But, did you know that you can get incredible state and federal tax credits and rebates just for going solar? That’s right, in an effort to encourage homeowners and business owners to switch to a renewable source of energy and lower their energy costs, electric companies and the government are willing to offer amazing incentives. The government will offer a 30% full tax credit of the cost of the entire Solar Water Heater or PV system in your home or business.
In addition to tax credits, electric companies offer rebates/refunds to those who choose to go solar. To see a full list of solar rebates, grants, and loans offered in Missouri click here. As one can see, tax credits and rebates dramatically lower the cost of installing solar panels in your home or business. However, these programs are designed to reward early adopters of solar power. As more and more people are choosing to go solar, the rebates are beginning to drop.
