Save Money with Solar Energy and Solar Panels

Solar energy can save the average American household $1,320 per year in electricity bills, and installing solar panels increases the average U.S. home value by $15,000.

How Solar Energy Saves You Money

No Electric Bill

Solar energy may eliminate your electricity bill, potentially saving you $1,108–$2,862 annually. With net metering, you can also make money on excess electricity your solar panels produce.

Increased Home Resale Value

Installing a 3-6 kW solar system on your home can increase its resale value by $4 per watt, roughly $12,700–$16,000, depending on the system size and where you live.

Tax Incentives

Installing solar electricity for your home can earn you local, state and federal tax rebates and incentives. Until Dec. 31, 2021, homeowners can deduct 30 percent of installation costs from their federal taxes.

How Much Solar Panels Will Cost You

The cost to install solar power for your home depends on how much electricity you need to produce, how many solar panels you install, where you live, the solar power company you hire, and what type of photovoltaic panel you choose. In 2019, after federal and state tax credits and rebates, the cost to install solar panels on an average-size U.S. home is $11,200 to $14,400.

How You Can Pay for Solar Energy

Investing in solar energy for your home can quickly cost upward of $25,000 before rebates or tax breaks. There are three common methods of financing solar panels: leases, a purchase-plan-agreement, or a loan. Each option has its own benefits and drawbacks. Some companies offer special deals for qualified buyers, like $0 down payments and low-interest rates. We recommend discussing your options with any solar installer or finance provider you choose to work with.
