WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF GOING SOLAR?
A healthier environment with cleaner air, water, and soil. Continued reliance on fossil fuel is one of the main reasons why the climate is changing. We are adding greenhouse gases to the atmosphere, which increases the amount of heat trappped by the atmosphere. This is causing an increase in frequency and intensity of events like super-storms and droughts. Reducing fossil fuel use will also reduce the pollution of the air that we breathe.
REDUCE YOUR RELIANCE ON LIMITED RESOURCES
We are learning more and more about the impacts of fossil fuels, and harmful emissions on our environment. Solar technology harnesses the energy provided by the sun, an unlimited,and abundant resource.
REDUCE YOUR RELIANCE ON THE GRID
Electricity rate increases are frequent. By investing in solar energy, you can avoid increases to your energy bill for years to come.
A SOLID INVESTMENT
Each state offers different incentive programs for going solar. In some cases, the utility company will pay you for your unutilized energy. Massachusetts offers generous financial incentives which significantly offset the cost of your solar energy system. Once installed your system is an investment that will pay dividends for years to come. Consult your tax professional to learn how federal and state tax credits apply to your specific project.
