There seems to be no end to the outrageous increase in energy bills. Energy rates continue to increase every month. How can you prevent this from happening? How can you STOP IT?! The answer is simple: GO SOLAR! With the purchase of a new PD Electric Home Solar Energy System, you can dramatically reduce your power bills and immediately take advantage of the benefits by converting to clean energy. The federal government recently passed a bill to raise the solar energy tax credit from 26% to 30% as written in the Inflation Reduction Act of 2022. As a credit, you take the amount directly off your tax payment, rather than as a deduction of your taxable income. This amount can also be deferred for 5 years if needed for future tax deductions.
We offer some of the most cost effective home solar system installations in Orange County AND dthis summer we are offering discounts on all electrical panel upgrades or replacements with the purchase of a new Solar Energy System for older homes. Contact us today if your older electrical panel no longer supports your modern appliances and electronics. Our friendly, knowledgeable team members are to answer all your questions concerning the specific needs of your home or business.
When you hear about the power of solar energy, it’s usually in the context of renewable “green” energy solutions. But did you know that switching to solar can be just the solution you need to keep your energy bills low and manageable? In addition to the environmental benefits and economic incentives associated with renewable energy, solar energy systems offer you a level of customization and energy-efficiency that ensures no energy gets wasted, which means that you’ll only pay for the energy you need.
Not only will your solar-powered home use less energy, but it will let you make money off of the energy you don’t use. A process known as net metering gives you rebates from your energy company that you can use on those rare cloudy days when your solar panels can’t quite provide you with all the energy you need. Here’s how it works: a net energy meter keeps track of all the power your solar system produces. Any solar energy that you do not use simultaneous with production will go back into the electrical grid through the meter. At night or on cloudy days, when your system is not producing more than your building needs, you will consume electricity from the grid as normal. Your utility will bill you for the "net" consumption for any given billing period and provide you with a dollar credit for any excess during a given period. You can carry your bill credit forward for up to a year, giving you a safety net that keeps your energy costs low even when your energy generation isn’t at its peak.
With all the benefits and savings involved, many customers find that the only thing stopping them from making the switch is dealing with the long, expensive installation process. At PD Electric, we take the stress out of solar so you can enjoy the power of renewable energy with no hassles, extra fees, or delays. We provide free quotes to all customers, and our team always double-checks our work before we leave to make sure that the job’s been done right.
