You Should Own Your Solar Panels
As electricity prices continue to rise across California and the high desert, innovative solar financing plans keep the cost of solar energy low for potential solar homeowners. At SolarShoppers by Revolt Electric, we offer innovative and affordable zero down solar ownership options. This allows you to have a low fixed payment, pay less than the electric company and put your money into an asset on your home; without any of the complications associated with solar leasing.
One of the benefits to installing solar panels on your home is the positive impact it can have on your bank account. The loans SolarShoppers offers are structured so that the monthly payment is lower than your current electrical bill. Our customers can save tens of thousands of dollars over the life of their solar energy system. Most begin enjoying their savings right from the time the system is installed and energized.
When you own your solar panels, you, the system owner, claim all the incentives, including the 30% federal solar tax credit. Also like many solar homeowners, you may see an increase in the resale value of your home, which for some home sellers, can be as much be very significant according to Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. Unfortunately, if you sign up for a solar lease, Fannie Mae will not allow home appraisers to include the value of the solar panels in the value of your home. The choice, then, is pretty clear. If you qualify, you should own your solar system outright so that you may personally take advantage of all its benefits.
Help the Planet and Your Wallet
In addition to keeping your electricity costs low and affordable (e.g. saving you money), solar energy will help reduce pollution from power plants and vehicles, particularly as personal transportation transitions to electric vehicles over the coming decades. That means higher air quality and healthier breathing. In fact, if you were to install solar panels today, over the next 25 years your system will offset 121,676 pounds of carbon (CO2), the equivalent of: 130,682 fewer car miles Planting 393 trees Saving 7,994,000 gallons of water used in power plants
Save With the Federal Tax Credit
SolarShoppers offers our customers loans that are structured so you can take full advantage of the federal solar tax credit. If you qualify, the tax credit will cover up to 30% of the costs of a custom designed solar panel system.
