Benefits of Switching to Solar in Illinois

Homeowners in Illinois who switch to solar are eligible for local and federal incentives, making solar energy more affordable than ever. Some of the solar incentives 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 can lower your taxes. This makes solar power an excellent investment for your home. Not only will you reduce your carbon emissions when you switch to this clean, green renewable energy resource, you also will greatly reduce how much you pay the power company.

3 Steps to Solar Power in Illinois

Switching to solar power in Illinois will save you money over the life of your solar system. And the savings will increase, since energy prices generally rise about 3.5% each year. That may not seem like a lot, but over time, those increases add up. With solar power, you will continue to save. At POWERHOME, 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 switching to solar power more attractive. To make it even more affordable, we’re offering a $0 down, 100% financing plan to qualified Illinois homeowners. This means you can go solar without any up-front out-of-pocket cost. Or if you prefer, you can simply purchase your solar system outright. Either way, you’ll be generating energy for your home and saving on your bills.

Don’t Rent Your Power, Own Your Power

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 consistent price increases and infrastructure improvements, and maintenance and repair costs passed on to the consumer, and electricity prices will continue to rise in Illinois long-term.

With solar power far cheaper than it has ever been, switching to solar power now will put you ahead of the game. Add to that the local and federal solar incentives, and your electricity savings will quickly add up for your Illinois home when you switch to solar power.

snowflake icon
Although winters in Illinois are cold and snowy, the state still gets enough hours of sunlight to make solar power viable. Although solar panels work best when they get peak sunlight, they generate energy whenever there is sunlight, even if it is cloudy. And they often work more efficiently in colder weather, since the sunlight reflected off snow helps them generate more energy. In addition, they do not lose energy the way they can in hot weather.
