Many of us wonder about whether having solar panels put on our rooftops is a good choice and if so when is the right time to make the investment.
The right time is now and here are a few of the reasons why.
The installed cost of a residential rooftop system is less than half of what is was ten years ago!!
Today’s cost of a typical residential system will range between $15,000 to $18,000 installed. This can be reduced by the 30% Federal tax credit so the net cost is now between $11,000 and $13,000 for most homeowners. For most of us this will be a 6 to 8 year payback representing about 1/3 of the life of the system. The bottom line is many years of “free” electricity and no more worry about utility rate increases.
The federal tax credit will be phased out over the next 4 years, so take advantage of it now.
Prices for solar panels are at all-time lows, however, this may change rapidly as there may be additional import duties assessed on foreign made panels which will have the effect of raising the prices on not only the imported panels but the domestically manufactured panels as well.
Electric utilities have set limits on the amount of solar that they will accept into their grid. While this will increase over time, the terms of interconnection are becoming less favorable for the homeowner.
What do Studies say about this?
Studies have shown that solar powered homes have an increased value approximately equal to the cost of the system as compared with a kitchen or bathroom remodel where only about ¾ of the cost is recouped in increased value. Further the value of these types of remodels decline much more rapidly than the long lived solar energy system.
