The Federal Investment Tax Credit for solar systems is 30% of the system’s net cost.
The Internal Revenue Code has a 5-Year Accelerated Depreciation Schedule for commercial solar systems.
Solar systems are exempt from property taxes in some states, but the value of a solar system adds to the appraised value of a property.
If you’re on an optional Time-of-Use net energy metering schedule, the utility credits your account during peak rate periods at several times off-peak rates. This helps to reduce the size of your solar installation, and can zero out your electric bill over the course of each year. Solar power is not only environmentally friendly, it can reduce or eliminate your power bill.

System cost depends on size, materials and labor. Most systems pay for themselves within 5 to 10 years. To roughly estimate your investment, take your annual electric bill and multiply it 5-10 times (representing years). That will provide you with a rough estimate of your investment in solar based on payback periods.
Keep in mind that each PV system is sized to the unique annual energy needs of each customer. Systems aren’t sized for square footage, but designed to replace the total amount of electricity you use annually. Site specific elements, differing electric rate schedules, and financial incentives that you may or may not qualify for all affect your total system investment.
Eliminate your net electric bill, use current incentives – High performance solar photovoltaic (PV) systems combined with state rebates, federal tax credits, depreciation and most states’ Net Energy Metering program, create very favorable financial incentives for installing a solar system now.
Declare energy independence – Invest in a solar PV system and generate your own electricity from sunlight – a clean, silent, renewable energy source with no emissions.
Enjoy long-term solar life expectancy – With PV panels 25-year warranty and 40+ year lifespan, your solar system will last for years to come, sheltering you from rising electricity rates.
Add value to any property – Solar systems are exempt from property taxes, but the value of a solar system is added to the appraised value of a property. It’s one of the few home improvements that can be justified in terms of return on invested dollar.
Questions About Installation
First, your site, building or home is inspected to evaluate a year’s worth of electric bills to create a profile of annual energy needs. Next, a system is designed tailored for your site, and you are presented the design in a proposal. After you approve the design, sign the contract and make a deposit, the materials are ordered for your system and the required paperwork is started for local building permits and applicable state rebates.
Installation time depends on the size of the system. Average residential systems rarely take more than one week to complete.
