Building a Movement in Indiana

Utility costs in Indiana have risen in the last decade, due mostly to the utility’s need to add equipment and services, and to comply with stricter environmental rules. However, when you switch to solar power, you are investing in your home, rather than the utility’s equipment. At POWERHOME Solar, our mission is to increase the number of homes that use solar power in Indiana. That way, Hoosiers can reduce their current electricity bills and keep saving in the future. Our objective is to transform how Indiana homeowners generate their energy.

Solar Power Benefits in Indiana

Indiana homeowners who switch to solar can take advantage of a combination of state and federal incentives. Indiana has a renewable energy property tax exemption that exempts the value of the system from property taxes, and many of the components are exempt from sales tax. In addition, Indiana has a net metering program that allows you to send your extra electricity back into the grid and get credits on your electric bill. And don’t forget the federal investment tax credit, or solar tax credit, deducts 30% of the cost from your taxes.

Indiana Solar Power in 3 Simple Steps

Utilities can be a burdensome expense for Hoosiers since you need water and heat to survive, and you’re often locked in with who provides these necessary services to your home. At POWERHOME Solar, we think that Indiana homeowners shouldn’t have to worry about whether their utility bill will go up unexpectedly. We think that homeowners in Indiana, and the entire U.S., should claim independence from energy companies by switching to solar power.

Often, homeowners in Indiana think about using solar power but hesitate to switch because they think installing solar panels is expensive. In fact, the cost of installing solar panels has fallen more than 70% since 2010. And at POWERHOME Solar, we offer a 100%, $0 down financing plan that makes solar power much more affordable. You can switch to solar with no out-of-pocket expense, or you can choose to buy your solar power outright. Either way, you’ll start seeing a reduction in your energy bill soon.

Don’t Rent Your Power, Own Your Power

The combination of dwindling supply and infrastructure maintenance is likely to drive up the cost of electricity in Indiana in the coming years.

Switching to solar power now will put you ahead of the curve. While your neighbors are paying through the nose for electricity generated by outdated fuels, you’ll be sitting pretty generating your own energy with those sweet, shiny solar panels on your roof. Switching to solar power is a win for you and your family.

Although Indiana winters tend to be cloudy, cold and snowy, the state still gets average of 4 peak sun hours a day. And while solar panels work best during peak sun, as long as any sunlight reaches solar panels, they will generate power. It doesn’t matter if it is cloudy, cold, snowy or rainy. In addition, when it is cold, your solar panels may work better, since they do not lose energy due to hot weather. In addition, the snow can reflect light, which helps the solar panels work more efficiently.
