- Sustainable Energy
For homeowners throughout Illinois, finding sustainable and renewable energy sources is becoming more and more essential. Thanks to the high number of electronics in your home, your energy bill has likely skyrocketed. That's not just a matter of money; it's also a strain on your neighborhood.
If you operate on electric utilities, you’re connected to the local power grid. While that’s okay most of the time, you’re not always getting the highest-quality power. Known as “dirty” power, the energy you get during peak usage hours (when everyone in your neighborhood is using the most) can cause wear and tear on your electrical system and drive up the cost of your usage.
A solar system would put energy-generating panels on your roof, so you won’t have to rely on anyone else to supply your home with power.
- Lower Monthly Bill
Thanks to zero-down financing plus state and federal incentive programs, jumping into solar is easier than ever. And, for qualifying customers, it could lower your monthly energy expenses by replacing your energy bill.
When you buy a system, you don't have to pay it off all at once. You can offset the cost with monthly payments. SRECs and Illinois net-metering will pay you back for the energy your system generates, which will lower the initial cost. And the ITC offers a 26-percent tax credit to lower the price even further.
