For the past 10 years, utility costs kept growing and solar costs kept going down, so going solar just got better and better.
However, coming changes to solar rules suggest the best time to go solar is right now, because the outlook for solar in future years may actually be less rosy than today.
So, homeowners who have been putting off their purchase of a solar energy system until a “better time” should make note: the best time to go solar has now arrived.
For one thing, the very generous solar income tax credit – by which the federal government pays for 30% of the solar energy system cost — is set to expire at the end of next year (2016). That amounts to a 30% price increase on new solar.
For another thing, the present California utility rules on “net metering” — which allow solar customers to zero out their power bills, guaranteed for the next 20 years — will be changing sometime in the future (although the exact date is not certain).
The present favorable rules will apply until solar reaches 5% penetration in SDG&E territory. With the popularity of solar still growing, that deadline could be reached as early as December 2015, according to some industry experts. After that, who knows?
Homeowners who move forward in the next six months are guaranteed the best deals:
- Greatest savings compared to the power company
- Lowest prices on solar hardware
- Fastest delivery times for installation
- 30% solar tax credit guaranteed
- 20-year guarantee to zero-out your power bills with solar
Past experience suggests that these future deadlines tend to cause longer delivery times and also higher costs, as materials and labor start to be in short supply.
Don’t let this great opportunity pass you by… the best time to go solar is RIGHT NOW!
