It's Good for the Environment Solar energy is a clean, reliable, renewable energy
alternative to polluting high-impact systems. In California,
our power is primarily generated by natural gas, followed by
large hydroelectric systems, coal-fired power plants, and
nuclear power. Only 10% of this is renewable energy*, yet
enough sunlight falls on the earth's surface every hour to
meet world energy demand for an entire year. With resources
dwindling and becoming more costly, the time is now to
invest in long term solutions to our shortage and achieve
Start Saving Now on Your Electric Bills A solar energy system can offset your peak energy consumption down to base line levels and help you save up
to 80% or more of your annual electricity bill. Energy rates
are increasing at a rapid rate with no end in sight. Streamlining your energy costs will significantly improve your bottom line.
Incentives Right now there are rebates and tax credits offered for you to invest in a Solar Energy System. The California Energy Commission rebates are priced per kilowatt based on output and performance of the system, and the federal tax credit is 30%.
Corporate Depreciation Incentive Under the Modified Accelerated Cost Recovery System (MACRS) your business can recover investment in solar energy through depreciation deductions. All properties placed in service after 1986 can be depreciated in five years.
