What You Need to Know About Home Solar Energy

What You Need to Know About Home Solar Energy

What you need to know about home solar energy is that learning what’s important is all that matters. We will go step by step about what’s most important and what may not be important about solar energy. From the start, it’s important to understand how electricity is measured. Take a quick glimpse of your power bill and you see they charge by the kilowatt-hour. That’s important information because home solar systems are measured by kilowatt-hour production. Determining your average daily and monthly kilowatt usage determines the correct size solar system.

How Homeowners Purchase Home Solar Matters

What You Need to Know About Home Solar Energy

Financing plays a key role in going solar. New homeowners can include a solar system in their mortgage through loans available via the Federal Housing Administration and Fannie Mae.

Although financing plays a key role in going solar, paying cash offers the best return on investment. The most important factor in financing solar is how fast you can pay it off. Many homeowners finance home solar and pay it-off sooner rather than later to increase their return on investment.

It’s difficult to make money from solar if a system takes more than 10.5 years to offset the cost from what you would have paid the power company. Many homeowners have opted to finance solar with no money out of pocket for 20 years because they like a fixed cost.

It's Important to Have a Keen Understanding of the ITC Tax Credit

What You Need to Know About Home Solar Energy

Disclaimer: You Must Seek Expert Advice for the ITC Solar Tax Credit Because No Two Homeowners’ Income Taxes are the Same. Consult with a Tax Expert to Determine if You Qualify for the ITC Tax Credit and How Much You Qualify for Per Year.

The ITC Tax credit isn’t as difficult as many make it sound. So long as your annual federal income taxes exceed the amount of your tax credit; You can apply the ITC tax credit when you file your income taxes for the year of purchase.

The ITC tax credit has been difficult for some homeowners because the ITC tax credit can easily be misconstrued as a rebate when it isn’t. The tax credit does not have to be claimed in a single year of taxes, it can be spread out for up to 5 years. The most important thing in this step is to be certain what you qualify for before purchasing solar. The ITC tax credit is a cash bonanza for homeowners who qualify for it.

What You Need to Know About Home Solar Energy
