POWERHOME Solar has made the possibility for customers to own their power – by adding solar – a part of its core mission. Along with that, it may be possible to increase the value of your home and leave a better future for your children and your children’s children.
As solar power leaders, we’ve worked hard to get where we are. We’ve won accolades and awards that set us apart from countless other Illinois solar companies. However, it is the customers we serve and the fact that we're helping them do the right thing that we enjoy most.
In addition, we’re committed to using only American-made solar panels.
Finally, we are proud to work with outstanding partners that help us broadcast our message of utilizing solar energy to our customers. Our list of partners includes the Carolina Panthers, Cleveland Browns, Cleveland Indians, Detroit Lions, Indianapolis Colts and Pittsburgh Steelers.
Homeowners in Illinois who add solar may be eligible for local and federal incentives, making solar energy more affordable than ever. Some of the potential solar incentives that may be available for Illinois homeowners are the 30% federal investment tax credit (ITC), net metering, the ability to sell your renewable energy credits, and the special property assessment that may lower your taxes. These things have the potential to make solar power an excellent investment for your home.
The current 30% federal investment tax credit is set to step down at the end of 2019, and will eventually reach 0% for homeowners by 2021. That makes now the perfect time to act so you can start seeing the potential benefits of solar for your home.
Adding solar power in Illinois may be able to save you thousands of dollars on your electric bill over the life of your solar system. And the savings may increase, since energy prices are generally expected to rise each year. At POWERHOME Solar, we feel that Illinois homeowners should not have the constant worry of rising energy bills.
The cost of installing rooftop solar panels has reduced over 70% since 2010. Better installation methods and lower prices for panels have made adding solar power more attractive. To make adding solar power to your home even more affordable, we’re offering a $0 out of pocket installation, 100% financing plan to qualified Illinois homeowners. Or if you prefer, you can simply purchase your solar system outright. Either way, you’ll have the ability to potentially save on power bills and possibly increase your property value.
The Land of Lincoln ranks only 34th nationally in solar panel installations, but it is projected to grow significantly over the next five years. With 1,533 megawatts of solar expected to be installed over that time frame, that number ranks 13th in the nation. We are excited to help build that solar future in Illinois!
Improvements in the efficiency of solar panels and their sleek, modern design have made solar energy in Illinois an attractive, practical option for homeowners and businesses alike. When you factor the potential to qualify for the 30% solar tax credit through the end of 2019, and the expected rise in energy costs, adding solar in Illinois is a no-brainer.
The average family in Illinois consumes approximately 10,000 kWh of electricity a year to run all the gadgets and appliances they use every day. And since the average price of electricity in the state is $.12 kWh, your power bill can easily exceed $1,000 for the year. Add to that expected price increases and infrastructure improvements, and maintenance and repair costs passed on to the consumer, and electricity prices are generally expected to keep rising in Illinois.
With solar power far more accessible than it has ever been before, adding solar power now can put you ahead of the game. Factor in the potential local and federal solar incentives, and your electricity savings may quickly add up when you add solar power to your Illinois home.
