There are many $0 down finance options for eligible homeowners that wish to go Solar. Solar is a fast growing Industry that is working diligently to help homeowners move toward renewable energy. The best way to do this is to offer affordable options and programs that make sense on an individual basis. Solar is not a luxury, turning on a light should not be a costly decision yet Utility Companies continue to escalate prices by the year. One-Energy has multiple purchase options available when you're on your quest to go renewable, let us find the best Solution for you.
No. When purchasing a Solar System it is important to note that the System will tie into the Utility Grid. Your System produces Energy that feeds the grid and the Utility returns that power to your household or pays you credit if your system produces more than your Monthly Usage (measured in kWh).
Yes! The Current Tax Incentive (ITC) for going Solar in 2021 is 26%. For eligible homeowners this can translate into a huge savings come tax season. While the current tax incentive is set to phase out in 2023 we do recommend consulting with your tax professional to see how the current incentives will best serve you.
Renewable power, or renewable energy, is energy produced from naturally regenerating sources. Examples include solar power, wind power, hydro power, and geothermal power. Supporting renewable energy sources helps supply the power grid with clean energy, rather than fossil fuels.
Solar power is energy generated by sunlight. The sun is a renewable energy source. Sunlight is converted to energy by solar cells on solar panels, through the photovoltaic effect. The energy captured by solar panels may deliver energy to an individual home or business in the event rooftop panels are installed, or directly to the power grid via a solar farm.
Solar energy production adds clean, renewable energy to power distributed by the electric grid. Renewable energy currently makes up 17% of energy generation in the United States. Meanwhile, nearly 63% of energy comes from fossil fuels. By choosing to go Solar, you can help be part of a shift to increase the use of renewable energy sources. The environmental impact of and average neighborhood choosing to go Solar would be equivalent to planting 7.9 acres of forest in the U.S., switching 225 regular lightbulbs to LEDs, and offsetting the greenhouse gas emissions equivalent to a car driving over 16,000 miles. That is the same as driving from San Francisco to New York, over 5.5 times! Calculations based on estimated 9030 kWh of solar production in Year One.
