Financially Smart

  • On average a grid- tied solar array will pay for itself in 11 – 12 years.
  • Over the life of the system, a solar array will generate enough savings and revenue to provide a 7 – 8% return on invested capital
  • Currently there is a 26% Federal tax credit for the installation of solar PV on your home or business.
  • According to a study by the National Bureau of Economic Research, homeowners can recover nearly all of the investment costs for their solar array if they later sell their home and move – and that’s on top of the annual energy savings. Compare that to other home improvements and solar is an easy choice.
  • The same study by the NBER stated that on average, a solar array increases the value of your home by $22,554
