Solar is not just smart energy, but a smart investment. The energy solar generates will save you money that would not need to be spent paying a utility bill. Some states might even pay income for generating solar. With all the savings, the money invested in solar will likely deliver returns better than the stock market.
There is a wave of incentives washing over solar. Government is offering tax rebates to stimulate solar growth, utilities are paying solar producers to supply renewable energy, and Boston Solar is offering cash rewards to interest new customers. From all directions financial incentives are making now a lucrative time to go solar.
With the dramatic fall in price of solar combined with the stack of government incentives, solar is now an affordable energy option within reach of most everyone. The discounted price has made cash purchases possible to many, while others can get access to low interest loans and leases. Even with financing payments the monthly cost of solar can still be less than that of a conventional electric bill. As concluded by a Department of Energy sponsored report, solar is a “real opportunity for anyone looking to take greater control of their monthly utility bills.”
