Solar panels on roof of home with sun rising in the background
July 17, 2018

It can sound too good to be true sometimes — harnessing the free power of the sun to not only reduce your environmental impact but also save you money each and every month on your energy bill. You might be wondering what the catch is — can this be a good investment in my California home or business?

Thousands of Californians who've gone solar before you say it can.

The cost of installing a photovoltaic (PV) solar system has dropped significantly since 2010 as the efficiency of these systems has increased. So, those that "go solar" are paying less for systems that are saving them more on energy. What's more, here in California, higher than average electricity costs can offset the cost of a solar system in a short period of time!

Solar Power that Pays for Itself

Whether it's for your home or your business, when you invest in a solar solution for your energy needs, you want it to pay off. At Pure Power Solutions, we have documented in our case studies that a properly installed solar system can entirely offset the cost of energy purchased from the utility company. This means it is just a matter of time before the initial cost of a solar installation is paid for with energy savings.

If you are looking to become even more energy independent, there are solar solutions that can remove your reliance on the grid. Using a battery storage system can take the extra energy that a solar system produces during the daylight hours and store it for evening and overnight use.

Save on Installation with Tax Incentives

The price tag of a solar installation can be intimidating. But through 2019, you can deduct 30% of the cost of your installation from your federal taxes, making it even more affordable for homes and businesses. So when you spend $15,000 on solar installation, you get $4,500 of that back when it comes time to pay taxes.

An All Around Upgrade

Not only can solar power reduce your monthly energy costs, but it can also increase the value of your home or commercial space. Houses in California (according to this 2016 study) have increased in value by an estimated $24,000 after installing an average-sized 6,000 watt system. A full list of upgrades that solar brings includes:

  • Increased home value
  • Monthly savings on energy costs
  • Clean renewable energy for reduced environmental impact
  • Protection against spikes in energy costs
  • Reduced risk of blackouts and outages with battery storage
