Benefits of Adding Solar Power in Illinois

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.

3 Steps to Solar Power in Illinois

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.

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.

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 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.

Do Solar Panels Work in the Illinois Winter?
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. They often work more efficiently in colder weather. If there is snow, the light gets reflected right back to your solar panels. In addition, solar panels do not lose energy in cold weather the way they might in hot weather.
