The power of the sun is easy to see, even on the coldest winter days. Why not harvest that energy and use it to power your home or business?
Tim Chabot learned about solar energy installations 8 years ago in California, and Chabot Electric has been a Connecticut approved contractor, installing and servicing these systems, ever since.
THE BENEFITS OF SOLAR ENERGY
RESIDENTIAL AND COMMERCIAL INCENTIVES
There are so many reasons to go solar. In addition to the above incentives, there are a handful of residential and commercial solar incentives:
- Expected Performance Based-Buydown (EFBB) – provides you with an upfront cost reduction based on the design characteristics of your solar installation
- Other cash rebates, a 30% federal tax credit, and other tax incentives that help reduce the up-front cost of solar for potential buyers
- Incentive programs from local utility companies, such as net metering
Connecticut’s renewable portfolio standard requires that 27% of electricity comes from renewable sources by 2020 – of that, 20% must come from “Class I” renewable energy sources, including solar, wind, tidal and other technologies.
