What You Should Know Before Going Solar

Solar Energy

1. Solar is more affordable than ever

There has been so much research done in the field of solar energy that they have found ways to make solar panels more efficiently and with lower costs. This means that prices for buying solar panels are at their lowest right now. As the prices have lowered, there has been a greater demand for solar from businesses and home owners. Going solar is no longer a luxury of the wealthy, but something that anyone can afford.

2. The Federal Tax Credit

To support the production of clean energy, the U.S. government is currently offering a Solar Investment Federal Tax Credit for those business owners and homeowners that go solar. You can save up to 26% off your solar panels by receiving this tax credit. Unfortunately, this tax credit won’t last forever as it is set to be cut in the next 5 years. Take advantage of this great opportunity while it is still available.

3. There are great financial options

As interest in solar has increased, more options for paying to go solar have opened up. Banks will offer loans that are similar to home-equity loans for you to go solar. The best part is that we offer a loan plan that is $0 down and you have 18 months before you have to start paying back your loan. This way you can start to see your savings come in from your solar panels before paying it back. Some banks in Missouri also don’t require a credit score to qualify for a loan. There are so many great financial options here in Arkansas and Missouri that solar is available to anyone. Which means, everyone can experience great savings, even in the first month of going solar.You can get a free solar analysis to learn what financial options are available to you!

4. You can stay connected

Many people worry that if they go solar, they will be out of power during a cloudy week because their panels won’t produce enough energy. This is not a problem that you will face with solar.You can stay connected to the power grid so if your panels ever don’t produce enough energy, then you will receive energy from your power company. This also works in reverse, if your panels are producing more energy than you need, then it will be sent back into the grid and used by someone else. This will earn you credit from your utility company, which will offset any costs you may have incurred from the power company.We also won’t be leaving you anytime soon. Shine Solar offers production guarantees for up to 25 years.
