Isn’t It Time to Consider Solar Panel Installation at Your California Home?

You never know when the power will go out or when you’ll see an increase in your electric bill.

Everybody wants to save money and make money. You can with solar power! Even though California no longer offers a rebate for solar panel installation, the federal government incentivizes homeowners to install solar systems by providing a solar tax credit. We’ll cover that shortly. But even if there wasn’t a credit, there are so many other positive reasons to go solar. Switching to solar helps you:

 
  • Save money on your electric bill or maybe eliminate it altogether
  • Do your part to reduce carbon emissions and reliance on fossil fuels
  • Reduce the electrical power demand as well as blackouts in California
  • Enjoy access to power if the electricity goes out (when you have solar battery storage)
  • Increase the property value of your home and resale value
