Last week we focused on strategies to reduce your energy consumption, and therefore reduce your energy bill and carbon footprint as well. It’s important to look at the energy picture holistically so you’re able to really understand how you consume energy currently, and how this might change with adding a solar system to your home.
This week, we’ll celebrate a few key wins in solar thus far in 2021. As energy companies, Retail Energy Providers (REPs), energy partners, and local and federal governments build out their annual budget for this year, we’re starting to see some exciting news for customers looking to go solar this year!
Though we’ve already mentioned it before, it’s important to keep in mind that while the Federal Investment Tax Credit (ITC) was scheduled to decrease to 22% this year, it will now remain at 26% of the total sticker price, and that policy was extended through the end of 2022 (check out the following article for more information on this: https://www.recsolar.com/blogs/calculate-solar-tax-credit-2021/).
Plus, now that battery technology is improving, have you considered what your solar project may look like if you include energy storage? Check out the following link if you’re curious how the solar federal ITC may or may not apply for your project: https://www.solarpowerworldonline.com/2017/06/legal-perspective-storage-solar-itc/. We’re happy to help you make sense of your own personal energy consumption and production goals, and can conduct an energy audit of your home to see how close/far away you are from achieving them.
