Free Money

Solar has never been so affordable as the present. In addition to technology costs dramatically falling, government has put its back behind clean energy by offering tax subsidies to promote adoption. Even we at Boston Solar are giving away money to anyone who refers someone to go solar with us. Wherever you look, there’s lots of financial incentives available making the cost of solar all the more affordable—and in some cases, even profitable.

Government Incentives

From federal to state, everyone is handing out $ benefits

From federal to the state level, a collection of rebates and credits are available to significantly offset the cost of the system. But they will not last forever: Incentives are set to expire within the next couple years, so you’ll save more now by taking advantage of them before they’re gone.  Here are the current subsidies that you can benefit from:

A 30% off the price of a solar system can be deducted as a tax credit. The Federal Investment Tax Credit (ITC) is set to expire at the end of 2016, so use it while there’s time!

Solar Champion

Massachusetts is among the country’s top leaders in fostering solar power. In 2014, $791 million was invested in solar installations, representing a 1% increase over the previous year and a figure expected to grow again this year. Much of that investment gets channeled into funds for incentives and financing to help drawl people into solar. Here are some of those programs.can earn an estimated average of $150-$270 for every $1,000 kWh generated.
Solar make income

SRECs

Make income from simply generating solar energy

Solar Renewable Energy Credits (SRECs) are certificates earned by producing renewable energy. These can be bought and sold on a renewable energy market like a commodity, with values subject to the usual supply-and-demand pressures of a marketplace. The SRECs you hold are directly proportionally to how much solar power you generate. Specifically, for every 1,000 kWh generated, you will earn one SREC. This translates into about $150-$270 of income which is guaranteed to be paid out every quarter for 10 years.

If you were financing a solar system, the additional SREC income will subsidize the monthly payments, making the cost of solar all the more affordable—and perhaps even profitable. If the market drives up the price of SRECs beyond the price of non-renewable energy, then you’ll earn more money selling solar than the savings you’re getting on your electric bill!
