Solar energy has become the taboo topic of the year, along with Trump, Hurricanes, and Earthquakes. To find out what’s going on, we sent in one of our authors who just bought his first home to do some research on why so many neighborhoods are now turning to solar energy.
After doing the research it now makes sense why neighborhoods are going solar.
The first thing we looked at was the available funding available to help homeowners go solar.
A lot of funding has been raised to help homeowners go solar without fitting all of the bill themselves. You have the Federal Government Incentives, the State Incentives, and all of the private investors funds. We’re talking about billions of dollars raised.
All of this funding has been put in place to help with Climate Change. This makes it no surprise that there has been such a movement to install solar on one’s home.
Depending on the program, many homes are even installing panels on their house without needing to pay for the panels. The benefit with these programs is the ability to receive a lower electric bill from the power the panels produced, without needing to pay a solar bill.
However, if ownership, sounds better there are other solar programs that simply replace most of the electric bill with a solar bill which is usually less expensive and isn’t going to be raised on the homeowner in the future.
To help the homeowner see the best savings available, solarvisit.com has put together a great way to find out what solar programs a homeowner qualifies to be in.
Update: We’ve learned that most of the funding mentioned above is still available for homeowners, you can see if you qualify by filling out the form below
