A few common questions we always get when recommending new windows and doors.

Q:Are there any Solar tax credits I can apply for?

A:Recent incentives have made the installation of solar panels an even wiser investment. A 30% federal tax credit (IRS Form 5695) has recently been extended and you may qualify for the California Solar Initiative (CSI) which is a solar rebate program for California.

Q:How much does a solar energy system cost, and how much will I save on utility bills?

A:Unfortunately, there is no single or simple answer. But a solar rebate and other incentives can reduce the cost of a PV system. This cost depends on a number of factors, such as whether it is a stand-alone system or is integrated into the building design, the size of the system, and the particular system manufacturer, retailer, and installer. In most cases, you would have to add the cost of natural gas or electricity to get a more accurate estimate of how much you can expect to pay for a solar energy system. It is also difficult to say how much you will save with a solar energy system, because savings depend on how much you pay your utility for electricity, and how much your utility will pay you for any excess power that you generate with your solar system. You can ask your solar system provider how much your new system will produce on an annual basis and compare that number to your annual electricity to get an idea of how much you will save.
