Go Green With Solar

The world as we know it is still heavily dependent on fossil fuels like coal and oil for energy production. Our lifestyles require a lot of electricity running through our homes, but fossil fuels are finite and will eventually run out. Sunshine, on the other hand, is plentiful and will not run out anytime soon.

There is a simple solution we can enact as individual homeowners to help combat this energy crisis – we can make the decision today to switch to a cleaner and smarter energy solution by using solar panels to power our homes. Here are some of the top ways solar energy is better for the environment.

The Power of The Sun

As previously stated, fossil fuels will eventually run out. These resources are already scarce, which is why you see an increase in their prices.

The sun, however, is a free and abundant source of electricity. In a single day, the amount of sunlight that hits the United States is more than 2,500 times the entire country’s energy usage [1]. We have the power to liberate ourselves from dependence of fossil fuels and switch to a much ampler source for our electricity needs.

Advances in Technology

As technology continues to improve, solar panels are becoming more and more accessible to homeowners everywhere. Not only are panels able to pick up more energy and power homes in different areas of the country, the price of solar is continually decreasing and is more affordable than ever.

Local and federal governments are acknowledging the environmental benefits of solar and helping American citizens further by offering a variety of national and local incentives. As it becomes more evident that renewables are the way of the future, it’s becoming a no-brainer to switch to solar.

Reducing Our Footprint

Perhaps the most important reason to switch to renewable energy is to reduce our carbon footprint. Carbon emissions are a big culprit when discussing the reasons for climate change, which is perhaps are world’s biggest problem right now. If we do not drastically change the way we live in the next few years, we can cause irreversible damage.

Solar panels, unlike fossil fuels, give off virtually no carbon emissions unlike fossil fuels. Electricity productions is currently the second largest contributor of greenhouse gas emissions, making up for 27.5% of our total [2]. By switching to renewable energy, we can significantly reduce our carbon footprint and move towards a cleaner tomorrow.

Rising Electricity Costs

Another reason why millions of homeowners have made the switch to solar power is because of its financial benefits. Solar provides price-protected power and consistent energy bills, unlike the fluctuating prices of traditional power. In fact, traditional power will continue to rise drastically – and by 2050 the U.S Energy Information Administration projects prices to increase by roughly 125% [3].

Are Free Solar Panels A Scam?

We know what you’re thinking – nothing in life is free. However, with free energy from the sun owners of solar panel systems quickly see a return on their investment and save thousands over the lifespan of their solar system.

Read on to learn how you can take advantage of the deal that sounds too good to be true!

State Incentives

Many states and counties offer their own solar rebate programs. Ask your solar provider to learn more about these programs and determine which ones you qualify for!

Thanks to significantly improved technology and government incentives, solar is more affordable than ever. Step into your future and switch to clean solar energy today.

Financing Options

Momentum Solar is committed to helping residents of Florida convert to clean, solar energy. We provide guidance at every step in the process, which includes helping you determine the best way to finance your system. Three options are available to you:

Pay upfront for your system: If you are able to, paying for your system outright offers substantial savings over time.

Take out a loan: Many homeowners don’t have enough money to pay for their system outright, but taking out a loan allows them go solar sooner. There are several types of loans available and we can help you find the best one for your financial situation. With a loan, you’ll be able to get a solar system installed on your property for $0 down so you can start experiencing cost savings sooner. Once the loan is paid off, you’ll own your system.

Lease your solar panel system: Leasing or a solar power purchase agreement (PPA) are attractive options for Florida residents who want to enjoy the savings associated with solar without owning the system. With a lease or PPA, you’ll pay a fixed amount for each kWh of electricity generated by your system, which will be substantially lower than paying for electricity from the grid. With no upfront investment and savings guaranteed during the entirety of your leasing agreement, this is an excellent way to go solar for little money down.

Federal Tax Credit

Tax credits are a great way for residents who own their solar panel systems to earn money back. The Federal Tax Credit allows solar energy owners to deduct 26% of the cost of installing the solar system from their federal taxes.

The Federal Tax Credit applies to both residential and commercial systems. This credit can be applied to personal income taxes that would otherwise be payed to the federal government.

You qualify for these credits if you own your panels opposed to renting, installed in 2020 and actively generate electricity. When you’re ready to claim your credit, you are going to need to file IRS Form 5695 when doing your tax returns. You will be instructed to calculate your credit on the form.

This deal will not last forever. Residential and commercial solar energy system owners can deduct 26% of the cost of installation for systems that have begun construction through 2020. The tax credit then decreases in slow increments annually until 2021, where it is projected to stay at 10%. You’ll get the best deal if you switch to solar energy today!

Isaias Power Outages

Millions of homeowners across the east coast are still without power thanks to Tropical Storm Isaias. The hurricane-force wind gusts ripped down trees, knocked over utility poles and flooded neighborhoods leaving homes on the grid with no electricity for days.

Battery backups, however, have allowed people to resume their everyday lives with electricity as soon as the storm was over – even if their neighbors are still withstanding a blackout.

Momentum Solar is officially offering a variety of battery storage options for our customers who already own solar panel systems as well as customers seeking both panels and battery storage options. We’ve teamed up with both Generac and Enphase to provide energy management technology that supplies homes with electricity in the event that your panels are not producing energy. This includes instances where the rest of your neighborhood is experiencing a blackout due to weather or similar causes.

What is Generac?

Generac is a great option for customers looking for both solar panel systems and battery storage. Generac PWRCell offers smart battery technology and monitoring capabilities, so battery system owners can easily and strategically power their home during a blackout.

What is Encharge?

Customers who already have solar panel systems but are interested in storage options can take advantage of Enphase to provide energy management technology that supplies homes with electricity in the event that your panels are not producing energy. Enphase systems are also convenient and adaptable – they can be upgraded post-installation with additional modules to suit changing needs.

Why Would I Need It?

Both the Generac PWRCell and Enphase Encharge give homeowners the luxury of powering their home when the rest of their neighborhood is completely shut down during a power outage. This battery backup system provides independence from your utility grid when you choose.

Maximize Your Savings

Homeowners have the power to choose when the energy produced by panels is stored in their battery units. By strategizing when your home uses the neighborhood’s grid and when to use from your own battery, you can maximize your energy savings and dramatically decrease your utility bill.

Enpower Smart Switch makes the transition easy by automatically detecting a power outage and switching your source from the grid to your battery unit. Generac PWRCell also makes it easier than ever to track your energy usage with the PWRCell app.

Why Choose Us?

Momentum Solar is one of the fastest-growing solar companies in the nation employing over 2000 people nationwide. Founded in 2009, we’re an owner-operated industry leader that is dedicated to the customer experience as we provide affordable energy options to qualified homeowners.
