Why Solar?

WHY SWITCH TO SOLAR?

Sustainable Energy


Solar energy is sustainable, renewable, and plentiful. As the cost of using solar to produce electricity is becoming more affordable, many homeowners are making the change to renewable energy. Financial returns and eliminating monthly utility bills are major incentives for going solar. The exact savings you will see with solar depends on your homes electricity consumption, size of your solar system, direct hours of sunlight, and the size and angle of your roof. Solar panels are viewed as upgrades! Just like a renovated kitchen or a finished basement, adding a solar system to your home will likely increase your home’s value. Additionally, each kilowatt-hour (kWh) of solar that is generated will substantially reduce greenhouse gas emissions like CO2, as well as other dangerous pollutants such as sulfur oxides, and nitrogen oxides.

WHY SWITCH TO SOLAR?

Own Your Energy


When homeowners finance a mortgage, they finance that for the entire house. The kitchen, living room, back yard, coat closet, etc. However, most homeowners fall under utility lessees. They rent enough energy to power their needs while gaining no equity. They’ll spend their hard earned money to access resources which are priced on fluctuating markets based on the number of other lessees and their consumption habits, which are increasing at rates up to 6 percent annually! When homeowners make the change to renewable energy they get locked in at a fixed rate, typically lower than their current average utility lease saving them money from day one.

SOLAR PROFESSIONALS

Your Home, Your Energy

Homeowners see the value to buying their property opposed to renting. As homeowners make payments on their loan or if the value of the home goes up, they achieve equity. When you buy, you have all the more freedom to rework your space to match your style and needs. Lastly, homeowners typically have more privacy when they own a home compared to renting.

Maintenance, generation, transmission, and distribution are just a few reasons why energy cost increase so frequently

The majority of our residential electricity comes from centralized utilities who mine and burn coal unleashing large amounts of  CO2 into the atmosphere

Among all the benefits of solar panels, the most important thing is that solar energy is a truly renewable energy source

Stop renting your power and start owning. Renting is expensive and wasteful while owning will give you full control of your energy

BENEFITS & INCENTIVES

Federal Incentive
Tax Credit


Homeowners can claim the federal solar investment tax credit when installing a new solar system. The value of the solar energy credit depends on the installation year for your system. For system installations occurring in 2021 or 2022, homeowners will receive 26% of the total systems cost as a federal tax credit. The current tax credit for solar panels and system installation is set to expire at the end of 2023. Unless Congress extends the credit as it has previously done, installing a system in 2024 or later won’t qualify for this federal investment tax credit. It truly pays to be ahead! You can claim the federal solar tax credit when you complete IRS Form 5695 for residential energy credits.

Energy Certificates


Some states require a minimum amount of the electric grid to come from renewable energy. Homeowners in these states earn a 1 for 1 credit or certificate for every 1000 kilowatt-hours produced from their renewable energy system. The value of an SREC, like a stock, is trade-able, and the value fluctuates according to the supply and demand of SRECs in a state’s market. 

Client Testimonials

“The one step energy team has a great way of doing business! Chase did a great job at explaining the entire ownership program and didn’t leave my house until I understood everything. He even got me a new thermostat to help me monitor and save energy.”

“My husband and i were very skeptical when a young man knocked on our door talking about free energy. But once we took a look at all the numbers and realized we were spending much more money with Met Ed for less energy we knew solar was a great option for us. The quality of customer service with one step beyond met our expectations and we have referred friends and family members for their service .
