Save On Solar In America

The United States of America is not only the country you live in, but you like some of the cool things associated with it.  First of all, you those American Cowboy cliches inspire and entertain you.  You were the first 64-year-old buster on the block to buy that 10-gallon cowboy hat.  You wear that over-sized hat of great stature everywhere you go, from your favorite duck pond down the street to the roller rink, no one has more pride in a classic American iconic hat like you.   Also, you love the bald eagle. In your big-hat-filling brain, America's bird is the most valuable commodity on the planet. Something else cool about the United States comes with its solar panel market, and the savings are here.  

Price Per Kilowatt

Let's have a very rigorous and disciplined academic look at solar cost, and let us all get-together and calculate the cost of a solar install. What we must know is the national average of cost per watt to pay for solar in the U.S. before we can continue to process this all with ferocity and diligence.  Recent information offered to the public indicates that U.S homeowners are been paying $3 to $4 per watt for solar energy system installations. This means that the average cost per watt will be roughly $3.57 per watt.

Deals From Companies And Governments

Solar installers, regardless of the size of the solar project, in the U.S. can benefit from a 30 percent from the federal investment tax credit (ITC). Amazing incentives by states, counties, municipalities and even utilities offer rebates or other incentives that can be paired with the ITC to reduce the initial cost of your solar energy system installation. Potentially, those who own a home will save up to $9,000 on the price of their solar energy system installations; especially if they can qualify for ITC. 

Have a look around the internet to study the complete list of all the amazing state incentives and rebates available state-by-state. Do not forget that these incentives are tax credits and sales tax exemptions. Meanwhile, others are credits for various types of home renovation projects that reduce energy consumption.

Various energy companies provide homeowners with solar installations to integrate state-level programs such as net metering into their energy infrastructure. This means that they will install a particular type of meter that spins both directions, so that when you create more electricity than you can consume, the rest is driven back to the utility grid, making this meter spin backward. These plans give you credits to use for periods when you do not produce enough and need to pull power from the grid.
