What will your carbon offset be?
The cost of solar has come down dramatically in the last few years making it more affordable than ever and making is possible for you to reduce your carbon footprint and protect the planet for future generations!
When you generate your own electricity from solar you offset the same amount of power from your electric bill, whether it covers some or all of your electricity usage. If you generate more solar than you use, the power company has to buy it back from you! (as a credit on your electric bill)
Solar panels produce clean electricity for 25 or more years, so investing in solar helps hedge against rising energy costs in the future.
There are many zero down financing options as well as federal tax credits and state incentive programs available which dramatically lower the cost of solar.
30% federal tax credit
The IRS allows you to deduct 30% of your solar power system costs from your federal taxes through an investment tax credit (ITC).
Xcel Energy Solar*Rewards
In 2013, the MN legislature passed the MN Solar Jobs Act requiring all investor-owned utilities to generate 1.5% of their electricity from solar by 2020. The Solar*Rewards incentive program offers incentive income based on how much solar you produced every year for the first 10 years.
