When you look up in the sky, what do you see? The sun, some clouds maybe, a few planes? Let’s rewind back to the sun. The summer months bring warm weather that can raise summer temperatures to the 100’s on some days, making it difficult to be outside without a refreshing oasis of water nearby. However, the sun should not be taken for granted, as it supplies mass amounts of free energy on a daily basis. For this reason alone, many homeowners are kicking their usual electricity based power and getting rid of hundreds of dollars worth of bills each month by switching to solar panels in their homes.
So what exactly are solar panels? Solar panels are devices that convert light to electricity using the most powerful source of light that is available, the sun. North Carolina is currently one of the most beneficial places in the country if you want to go solar.
Why make the switch? There are currently many benefits for installing solar panelling to your home in the forms of tax incentives that are provided by the government. For those homeowners who decided to install solar panels before 12/31/2019, they may claim a credit of 30% for a system installed in a dwelling unit. Through saving this percentage through government rebates and incentives, along with cutting the cost of traditional electricity bills, families can save thousands of dollars a year with a solar panel install. Don’t fret however, if you haven’t yet purchased a home by the end of 2019. Tax incentives will still be extended to those who install in later years, decreasing savings by only a mere 4%.
