Why Solar?

It will save you money.

Electric rates are inevitably going to go up. By installing a solar electric system you are buying your electricity for the next 25 years in advance. In a few years you will have made back the cost of installation.  For the rest of the life of the system, you will get free electricity. Furthermore, you can get 26% of the cost of the system back as a federal income tax credit as well as receive the benefit if SREC income for your solar production.

It’s good for the planet.

Global warming has already caused serious damage both here in the U.S. and around the world. We need to move away from burning fossil fuels as rapidly as possible. Getting some or all of your electric power from the sun is a great way to help. Illinois has plenty of sun and plenty of good roofs. We could get a lot of our energy from the sun.

Why Now?

Installation prices have come down.

The prices of photovoltaic modules have dropped dramatically in last couple of years. In addition, solar system costs are at historic lows. Some municipalities have also reduced the permitting costs.

The incentive programs will not last forever.

The SREC program in Illinois reduces in the value of the benefit to customers as each tier is filled with homes and businesses purchasing solar systems. The earlier an adopter of solar at the moment in Illinois, the more valuable the SREC credits and the greater the SREC income for the customer.
