Arizona Solar Power Can Save You Money
Why does solar power and renewable energy in Arizona make so much sense? Simple…Arizona boasts some of the sunniest weather in the U.S. and has 3 of the top 5 sunniest cities in the country, according to the National Climatic Data Center. And like so many areas around the country, Arizona residents suffer from substantial spikes in price during peak demand season, particularly late spring through late fall. So during this season, not only do Arizona residents have to deal with the potential for rolling blackouts but they also have to pay high energy prices.
By investing in solar energy, Arizona residents can make sure they are not faced with loss of power at any time! And don’t forget about the savings either…if your average electric bill is $150/month, solar can save you over $1,250 each year!! Even the Arizona Diamondbacks have seen the light and have begun installation of solar panels at Chase Field in Phoenix!
In addition, Arizona cares about the quality of the solar installers in its state. Arizona has created the Arizona Solar Watchdog Program with the purpose of teaching consumers how to check Arizona solar companies license, credentials and work history. Every contractor in Arizona needs to be registered with the Arizona Registrar of Contractors.Each contractor is issued a Registrar of Contractors’ license number, which can be looked up using the step-by-step process outlined under the Arizona Solar Watchdog Program.
Home Solar Financing
An average residential solar system can cost between $15,000-$25,000 after rebates and incentives. Considering that you will probably spend over $72,000 in electrical bills over the next 25 years, this can be a small price to pay. However, for many people, that still represents too large of an up front payment. The good news is that our Arizona solar installer partners offer a variety of great financing options to help offset some of initial installation costs. In some cases, your monthly payment will be less than the amount of savings on your electric bill. In most cases, low interest rates are available and the solar system will increase the value of your home as well.
Arizona Solar Rebates and Tax Incentives
Arizona benefits from a large number of Arizona solar rebate programs and Arizona financial options that exist to make it easier to afford solar power for your home. Whether you live in Phoenix, Scottsdale, Tucson, or Maricopa county there will be a solar rebate and/or incentive that will help make low cost solar a reality for you. There are solar rebate and incentive programs available from major Arizona Utilities such as Arizona Public Service (APS), Trico Electric Cooperative (TEC), Tuscon Electric Power (TEP), and often from Salt River Project (SRP), Navopache Electric Cooperative (NEC), Sulphur Springs Valley Electric Cooperative (SSVEC), and Mohave Electric Cooperative (MEC) and other AZ municipal and county electricity providers. Our professional solar installers are up to date on all of the applicable solar incentives based on where you live to save you as much money as possible.
