Solar Rebates & Funding
For a free, no obligation evaluation of your roof, electric system, and utility bills to see if you can benefit from a Solar Electric System installed by Northwest Exteriors.
Despite the austerity programs being floated around the country due to the economic downturn, there is currently no pullback in the state of California on rebates and tax credits for your solar electric system. Local utility rebates are still available from all major utility providers throughout California, including PGE and Southern California Edison. Smaller, municipal utility companies in fact still have substantial money left in their rebate programs. For example, SMUD customers can still lock in rebates as high as $1.55/watt AC! The 30% Federal Tax Credit is still in full effect until it twilights in 2016. This unlimited tax credit is on the full system price (minus utility rebate) which in effect lowers the system cost by almost 1/3.
In fact, the economic downturn has made solar more affordable than ever. Due to a temporary oversupply of modules manufactured across the globe, and the pull back of rebates and incentives overseas in Europe, (especially in Italy, Spain, and Germany) the retail price for a solar electric system has dropped substantially from even one year ago. If you had a previous quote, and the numbers were not favorable to you then, it would pay to revisit your interest in Solar and contact Northwest Exteriors for another quotation. You may find it now will pay to go solar. Northeast Exteriors has worked with our suppliers to find the best panels, inverters, and racking, and now has access to a wider range of funding options. We now can lease a solar electric system to you for NO MONEY DOWN. All you pay is a low monthly lease payment that is lower than your current electric bill, allowing you to save every month. For a limited time, Northwest is even offering Free Installation for its solar leasing program!
We don’t know when the price for solar modules will start to rise again, but it will happen. Some forecasts call for an economic recovery in one to two years. When it does, system prices will again start to rise. You can lock in your utility rebate and claim your tax credits and start saving on your electric bill by calling us for a free, no obligation evaluation of your roof, electric system, and utility bills to see how you benefit from a Solar Electric System installed by Northwest Exteriors.
