Every summer, experts at Greiner Heating, Air & Solar see a noticeable uptick in interest in home solar systems across Fairfield, Davis, and Dixon, California. This makes sense! Summer is the time of year when California receives the most daylight hours, and therefore the most sun. Homeowners are looking for a more environmentally friendly way to power their home while also saving on the high energy bills that result from keeping their home and family comfortable.
The truth is, summer is an excellent time to go solar. In fact, summer 2022 promises to be one of the most cost-effective seasons to go solar for California homes. Read on to learn more.
Benefits of Solar for Your Fairfield, CA Home
1. Save on Summer Electricity Bills
There's no better feeling than paying less for your energy, and there’s no quicker way to reduce your monthly energy bills than by adding a solar PV system to your California home! By upgrading your home to solar in the summertime, you can generate more free electricity on long summer days with lots of sun.
2. Save Even More with Solar Incentives
Did you know that homeowners in California are eligible for the federal solar investment tax credit? This incentive can help offset the cost of your solar PV system, making solar an even more affordable option for California homes. The federal solar tax credit will be 26% through the end of 2022, then 22% through December 31, 2023, and is then scheduled to be eliminated for residential projects as of January 1, 2024.
Remember though—your system has to be fully operational on or before December 31, 2023. By calling today, Greiner can help get you on the schedule with plenty of time to qualify.
3. Reduce or Eliminate Your Reliance on Fossil Fuels
Fossil fuels are harming our environment, and homes rely on them more than most homeowners realize. For example, fossil fuels are often burned to generate the electricity that powers your home, so even if you think your home is running on clean electricity, that might not be the case. In fact, in 2018, California’s in-state energy generation came from only 32.35% renewable resources (solar, wind, geothermal, etc.), while natural gas supported 46.5% of California’s in-state electricity generation.
By upgrading your home with a solar PV system, top solar installer Greiner can help you reduce your reliance on fossil fuels, or even eliminate it completely if you choose an off-grid solar system!
4. Lock in Energy Costs for the Next 25+ Years
Energy costs are prone to fluctuation from month to month, and the way that gas prices are rising, you're smart to be concerned about how your home heating and cooling bills could also increase. By choosing to upgrade your home to solar with Greiner, you can enjoy reduced monthly energy payments for the life of your system.
5. Power Your Home (and Even Your Electric Vehicle) For Less
Gas prices are high, and are projected to continue increasing through summer of 2022. As a result, home and vehicle electrification upgrades are top-of-mind for families across the country—especially in environmentally-minded California. With a solar system, you can power your electric systems with your own free electricity, reducing your monthly energy costs even further.
