If you’re considering joining the Pennsylvania solar movement, you’ve likely already done some research. You know the basics, but if you’re still on the fence about upgrading your energy setup with a solar energy system, we’ll answer questions you may have to help you make your decision. 

Is Solar Power Energy Efficient? 

Yes! Solar energy is an efficient option, especially when you combine it with other energy-efficient solutions. Our POWERHOME SOLAR Value Pack specifically helps homeowners achieve this goal in one fell swoop. With this package, your home will have a full suite of energy-saving upgrades, including our American-made solar panels, Generac solar battery and other efficient items such as LED light bulbs. Once the system is in place, you can potentially cut costs up to 25% on your energy bills.4

Could I Rely Less On The Grid? 

Using a solar energy system could limit your dependence on grid energy. Pennsylvania receives enough sunlight to make solar a worthy addition for your home, and for times when your home produces more energy than it needs at any one time, a backup battery comes in handy. This battery can hold any extra unused solar power and can be used at night or in the event of a power outage. 

Could I Receive Incentives For Going Solar?

Yes! Eligible taxpayers could receive up to a 26% federal tax credit on qualified solar expenses through 2022 and up to a 22% credit for the following year.5 If you think you might be eligible for that tax credit, get in touch with your tax professional as soon as possible.

Net metering is another benefit of going solar, and Pennsylvania homeowners may be able to take advantage of its availability.  If your solar panels produce more energy than you use, that excess energy can be sent back to the grid for credits on your electric bills. With net metering, you benefit from the full amount of power solar panels produce, not just the amount used by your home.
