How to Save by switching to Solar Power in Greenbrae, Marin County.

Can solar panels in Greenbrae produce much energy?

The PV cell is the component of the solar panel that converts light into electricity when sunlight strikes the cell. In areas with plenty of sunshine, how much energy your solar panel system produces is most impacted by how many solar panels you are able to fit on your roof. Because Greenbrae has so much bright, sunny weather, , solar panel installations here can operate at peak efficiency for roughly 71% of an average year – a 27% increase over the rest of the country.

In fact, California is generally one of the best regions of the country to harness solar energy, per the U.S. Energy Information Administration.

Will a solar panel system help me save money on energy costs in Greenbrae?

Yes, solar panels are a worthy investment. One study found that solar panel installations reduce energy needed for air conditioning and cooling systems by 12%, which includes the side benefit of reducing the “urban heat island” effect that impacts concrete-rich cities and suburbs.

Solar panels not only allow you to save money each month, but they also benefit the environment by reducing emissions of greenhouse gasses. After recovering your investment in your solar panel installation through reduced electricity expenses, your savings really add up. Beyond that, solar panels tend to increase the value of houses, so, if you sell your Greenbrae, Marin County, home, you’ll probably profit more than you would without solar panels.

Can I find tax breaks and financial incentives for installing a solar panel system in Greenbrae?

You may be eligible for several specific tax advantages and financing alternatives for both businesses and homes when you install a solar panel system in Greenbrae, Marin County.

A federal program, the Residential Renewable Energy Tax Credit, allows homeowners to claim a tax credit up to 30% of the total “solar electric property” project cost, including labor, installation, system wiring, and other charges.

An additional government program, the Business Energy Investment Tax Credit (B-ITC), also offers a 30% tax credit incentive for some commercial systems built through the end of 2022. The incentive value will decrease for every year after until the end of 2025, at which point the incentive will remain at 10% of project cost.

Visit the Database of State Incentives for Renewables & Efficiency to discover additional savings and incentives.

Please note: you may not be eligible for these financial benefits if you lease your solar panel system instead of purchasing it outright.
