Empower Your Year
Solar energy possesses numerous benefits and assists its users in achieving their goals, whether they are financial or environmental. Within those two categories, there are countless advantages on both a micro and macro level, yet some are still hesitant to make the switch. To demonstrate how advantageous it is, Stada Energy’s Coachella Valley solar installation team has highlighted the five best reasons to gift yourself solar in 2021!
Federal Solar Tax Credit
When you commit to installing solar energy at your residence or commercial property in 2021, you will receive a 26 percent tax credit. In order to incentivize Americans to invest in solar energy, the government passed legislation that earns citizens a tax break through 2023, albeit with different terms. Opportunities to lower taxes are hard to come by, so do not let this opportunity slip away, and install solar panels this year!
Avoid Rising Energy Costs
Over the last decade, residential electricity prices have increased, on average, three percent every year. Seeing those costs continue to rise is infuriating, but there is a way to avoid them: call the Coachella Valley solar installation team! Running a profitable business and providing for a family is expensive enough, and continually rising energy costs is another headache you do not need. By converting to solar, you are cutting down your expenses and, more importantly, eliminating a stressor from your life.
Stimulate the Local Economy
One of the most evident detriments of COVID-19 is the hit our economy took. Millions of Americans had no choice but to file for unemployment, and fought an uphill battle to support themselves and their families. How you can help some of those people get back on their feet is by converting to solar. The industry’s employment has grown by over 165 percent since 2010, and nearly 10 percent of its workers are veterans. When you invest in solar, you are investing in America.
Care for the Environment
To complement boosting the economy, shifting to solar does the environment a huge favor. An average household emits 20 metric tons of carbon pollution every year, according to the Environmental Protection Agency. Another report conducted by the U.S. Green Building Council states 39 percent of all carbon emissions derive from commercial buildings. Solar energy will remove you from both of those lists, on top of providing several other green benefits:
- Consumes less water
- Lessens reliance on fossil fuels
- Slows climate change
- Decreases dependence on limited resources
Installing solar panels prevents you from contributing to non-eco-friendly statistics!
Increase Home’s Value
Increasing a home’s value is one of the most financially responsible decisions you can make. With how competitive the market is, homeowners must take advantage of how much value solar adds. In California in particular, home values shoot up four percent or more, according to Energy Sage. External circumstances out of your control, like a pandemic, unfortunately have the ability to affect your home’s worth. By having the Coachella Valley solar installation team equip you with a brand new energy system, you are ensuring your home appreciates.
Leaving 2020 in the past and embracing 2021 is revitalizing, but the former did teach us one life lesson: prepare for anything and everything. Stada Energy has what you need to save as much as possible and enable you to give back to the community and environment.
