You may have seen solar panels popping up on your neighbors’ homes and are starting to wonder if you should install them, too. We can help you with that!
Solar electricity can help more people than ever thanks to improving technology as well as federal and state incentives. With that being said, Momentum Solar wants the best for our customers and provides homeowners with all information necessary to make this important decision. Here are some questions to consider when trying to determine if solar is right for you.
Is My Home A Good Fit for Panels?
Solar panels are designed to work in a wide range of climates and locations. Sometimes, however, some certain roofs are not suitable for solar systems due to their age, condition, or lack of access to sunlight. Many of these roadblocks are fixable, for example you can replace your roof or trim surrounding trees that are blocking your panels from the sun.
The size, design and location of your home also factor into the efficiency of solar panels. Usually, solar panels perform best on south-facing roofs with a slope between 15 and 40 degrees – but don’t worry, other roofs are suitable too. Speak with a Momentum Solar representative to find out if your roof is a good candidate for installation. Our specialists custom design each system for homeowners to ensure maximum efficiency as well as aesthetic appeal.
Do I Qualify for Credits or Incentives?
Most homeowners who have purchased their solar panels qualify for solar tax credits, which you can apply to your annual taxes. This credit is 26% of the cost of installation through the end of 2020, and after this year this number will decrease slightly. We encourage all who are interested in solar power to make the switch now while this deal is still available!
On top of federal tax credits, you may qualify for local rebates too. These vary depending on state and county, so we encourage you to ask us for help finding the ones that you qualify for.
How Can I Get Started?
In order to make sure that you qualify for solar power, ask your installer for an onsite home assessment. Momentum Solar provides customer with a free, no-obligation site assessment that concludes with a quote for your personalized solar energy system. Once you receive this information, you can then come to your decision as to if you would like to continue with this project. We understand that switching to solar is a big commitment and we truly want our customers to feel informed and comfortable when making their decision.
If you choose to pursue a project with Momentum Solar, you can sit back and relax as we take care of the entire process for you. We handle everything from permitting, design, installation and activation of your system. In addition, we also offer a variety of solar financing options to help you plan out your payments for your system and collect your savings your way.
