Top 10 Reasons To Go Solar

1) No Money Down!!!: With $0 down and thousands of dollars in solar incentives (year 1 and ongoing), financially, solar just makes sense.

2) Add Value to Your Home: According to a nine-year study by the Berkley National Solar Laboratory and the National Realtor’s Association, homes with solar sell faster and for more money than their respected neighbors, about $17,000 on average.

3) Freedom: Stick it to the utility monopoly! Massachusetts electric rates are the 4th highest in the country and continue to skyrocket. For the first time in your life, you have the CHOICE to either continue overpaying for power, or generate your own. Solar = Freedom.

4) Control and Predictability: Know your cost. Do you know what your electric rate will be in March 2017? Every solar homeowner knows what they’ll be paying (if anything). Put the power back in your hands!

5) Worry Free: With turnkey installation, service, maintenance, and monitoring are included at no additional costs – solar is a completely worry free process. Most of the install is done outside the house, and complete within one or two days.

6) Reduce Your Carbon Footprint: The average solar home reduces their carbon footprint by approximately 75 tons of C02 emissions. That is equal to planting 100 trees every year or not driving for the next 10 years.

7) Improve MA Infrastructure: Every solar home eases the burden of the grid. There is a reason why we have the potential of brownouts every summer – there is not enough juice in the grid. This is the unsung reason the State is funding solar – we need the power! Besides, they PAY YOU for all the power you produce.

8) Protect Your Roof: Add years to the life of your roof. The most damaging thing to your roof is not rain or snow, but those harmful UV rays, each day beaming down your rooftop. Solar panels act as a protective blanket, extending the life of any roof.

9) Maturity & Popularity: After 25 plus years, the solar industry has finally matured and is more popular then ever. The MA solar industry grew 200% in 2011 and 2012. Because homeowners can go solar for no money out of pocket, thousands upon thousands are choosing to go solar. It’s been in the news, from Channels 4 WBZ, 5 ABC News, Good Morning America, CNN, The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, Bloomberg, Opera Magazine, and dozens more.

10) Save Money!: Why pay more for something you are going to use anyway? Why not get paid? Solar incentives include:

30% Federal Tax Credit (Avg. $5k-10k with no cap)
State Tax Credit ($1,000)
Solar Renewable Energy Credits (SREC) – yes, you get paid for the power you produce!
Utility Savings: Everything you produce, you are not paying the utility

BONUS: Solar is the only Home Improvement that Pays for Itself
