Get paid for switching to solar

If you have been thinking about making the switch to solar power, now is the time to take action. Federal energy tax credits and solar rebates from your utility make obtaining a new solar system easier and more affordable than ever before. Some states like New Jersey, Ohio or Pennsylvania have Solar Renewable Energy Credits, also known as SRECs, which allow you to get paid for each kilo-watt of energy produced by your solar panels every year. The credits are valued in the market and have ranged in value from $200 to $600 per kW depending on your location. So a 10 kW system of solar panels could allow you to get paid $2,000 to $6,000 every year.

In fact, if you convert to solar power right now, you may be able to save fifty percent off the cost of your new solar power system.

Going solar makes sense in so many ways. Now that state solar energy rebates are in place, you really should consider making the switch as soon as possible. Factor in the federal tax incentives and state solar rebate and you will realize that this is the time to switch to sun power for most or all of your electricity needs.

While you are getting ready to have your solar system installed, there are many easy things you can do to start conserving electricity and saving money. Begin by turning off the lights every time you walk out of a room. Switch off that energy-wasting LCD television whenever you are not watching it. Take shorter showers. Replace all your regular incandescent light bulbs with energy-saving fluorescent bulbs and save major dollars. Whenever it is practical, cook small meals and snacks in a toaster oven instead of firing up your full-size oven. Prepare meals in a slow cooker or crock pot which only burns about two cents worth of electricity an hour. Yes, these seem like tiny steps to take but they add up to big savings on electric usage and will lower you utility bills in a major way.

When you do make the conversion from traditional grid-oriented electric to clean, safe solar power you will notice the difference in your bills right away. Actually, if you spend an average of two hundred dollars a month on electricity, a 1.5 kilowatt solar system will start paying for itself immediately and you will break even on the cost in about five years. Considering that a fine array of solar panels will last at least thirty years, that's twenty-five years of free electricity. Do the math and you will realize that these are significant savings indeed.
