Today’s Solar Isn’t Yesterday’s Solar

tumblr_static_twitterIf you haven’t read up on residential solar in a while, it’s a good idea to start with a clean slate as a lot has changed in the past few years. Older solar installations were large, clunky and inefficient, and homeowners paid a high premium for being an early adopter of the technology. Thankfully, rapid innovation has improved both the panels and the power delivery system while bringing down the price. Modern solar panels are also durable and essentially maintenance free, and most come with a warranty of 25 years or longer.

Solar is an Investment, Not a Purchase

Modern residential solar panels are becoming one of the most popular home upgrades for a number of attractive reasons. Solar is an investment that tends to add immense value to a home. If and when you choose to sell your home, you will attract the attention of forward-thinking buyers who are thinking about sustainability. In Cook and Lake counties we generate enough sunshine throughout the year that power-smart homeowners with an average solar setup can actually generate electricity to send back in to the power grid.

Scoop Up Tax Benefits and Cash Incentives

Don’t forget that there are numerous federal, state and local tax credits and other incentives to help offset the initial cost of a residential solar energy system. The federal income tax credit provides a credit for up to thirty percent of the total cost of the system. These are just a few of the many incentives – your solar professionals of choice will be able to explain everything.
