Why Solar - Why Now?
Save money on the escalating cost of energy for your home or business. Solar is a great investment - let us show you the details...
PA – Take advantage of state incentives, such as the PA Sunshine Program, which provides up to $1.25 to $2.25 per system watt installed for residential and commercial applications, depending on the size of the system.
NJ – Participate in the New Jersey Clean Energy Rebate Program where owners can receive up to $1.35 per system watt installed. (ON HOLD)
Enjoy the federal tax credit of 30% of your cost for a solar energy system with no cap for both residential and commercial installations. (i.e., On a 5 kW system, the rebate could be as much as $11,250.)
Earn one AEC (PA) or one SREC (NJ) for every 1,000 kWh your solar PV system produces. These can be sold or traded over a 15 year period: average value is approximately $225 per credit.
Improve the environment by helping to reduce emissions of greenhouse gases and other EPA pollutants caused by fossil fuel generated energy.

Advantages of Photovoltaic Solar Power

Photovoltaic solar power is one of the most promising renewable energy sources in the world. Compared to nonrenewable sources such as coal, gas, oil, and nuclear, the advantages are clear:

Generates free energy from the sun
Has no moving parts to break down thus requiring minimal maintenance
Non-polluting energy reduces emissions: has no direct impact on the environment
Photovoltaic (PV) cells are modular, you can start with a small system and expand as your needs increase
Systems have a long life and durability; cells last 25-30 years
Grid-tie systems allow you to receive credit from the utility for excess electricity generated
Can be installed and operated anywhere, including areas of difficult access and remote locations
Helps reduce our dependence on foreign oil
PV cells make no noise and give off no exhaust
Allows the use of electricity in remote areas where it would be expensive or impossible to run power lines
Rebates and incentives available; 30% federal tax credit, plus state and local incentives
