Have you been thinking about installing solar PV panels at your Davis, Dixon, or Vacaville, California home? This summer is a great time to start your solar energy journey with Greiner Heating & Air Conditioning! 

Why Should You Install Solar Panels in 2021? 

Save Money on Electricity Costs 

Electricity use tends to be higher in the summer months when you have your air conditioner or mini split heat pump running around the clock to keep your home cool. By installing solar panels, you’ll be able to power your home with free energy from the sun, reducing or even eliminating your electricity costs altogether. 

Keep Your Home Cooler 

Did you know that installing solar panels can actually help keep your home cooler this summer? “Do solar panels cool the roof?” is a common question we hear from our solar customers and the answer is yes, they do! Solar panels add and extra layer of shading to your roof which can lower its temperature and in turn keep your home cooler during the hot summer months. 

Get Maximum Savings From the Solar Tax Credit 

The solar tax credit, formally known as the Incentive Tax Credit (ITC), is one of the best solar incentives available to California homeowners. With the ITC, you can receive a federal tax credit worth 26% of your total solar installation costs. But you’ll have to act quickly to get the most savings—the ITC is in its final years. The 26% credit will only be available through the end of 2022. It will then drop to 22% in 2023, and be eliminated for homeowners in 2024. 

How does the solar tax credit work in California? It’s simple:

  • Save all receipts related to your solar installation
  • Obtain and fill out IRS Form 5695
  • Add your renewable energy credit information to IRS Form 1040 

The solar installation experts at Greiner can help guide you through the process, and we’re here to answer any questions you may have about solar incentives.
