Rebates and Financial Incentives

Government incentives for solar power are widespread. This is because it's a clean, renewable energy source that doesn't harm the environment and can be used anywhere without fuel costs or noise pollution from traditional sources such as oil-based fossil fuels . In fact there may already be several government rebates available to help offset upfront investment in your new system!

Frequently Asked Questions

You've got questions and we got answers. Don't see what you are looking for? Just contact us today to get a more personalized answer.

What kind of rebates are there for solar?

Currently, there are rebates from both the federal and state government. Sometimes we also see that local energy companies offer incentives. Typically, financial incentives are given in the form of tax credit rebates which we advise you to discuss with a certified public accountant.

Does solar work in heavily wooded or shaded areas?

Yes, but the size of your solar power production unit (ie. panels) will need a larger surface to accept more energy. While this can be done, your return on your investment will take longer to breakeven.

Can I get solar installed on a condo or duplex?

Absolutely! We do not install on rental properties for renters, however, property owners can install solar power for any property type.

How long does it take to breakeven on a solar power system?

The average to breakeven is 8-12 years dependent on use case.

How much does a complete solar energy system cost?

While it is easy to understand that this is a loaded question as a 800 square foot home will cost less than 3,600 square foot home more often than not, we think that most of our clients are actually trying to get a general price range. The average price per kW in Wisconsin is currently $2.70. So, a 10kW system is estimated to cost $27,000 installed before current 30% federal tax credits or rebates.

80% of our solar installs fall between $22,00 to $35,000 per project.

What is the process of getting solar panels installed?

We begin your solar journey with a solar site assessment which includes a detailed solar analysis report blending existing data with the potential of your location. This usually takes a couple of hours for the assessment and a couple of days for the solar analysis report to be built.

Based on the solar analysis, we will discuss pricing based on your specific needs and come to an agreement on the total project scope. A 50% retainer is needed to begin your work which starts with the ordering of materials.

While we have a 25-point checklist of our post-solar sales process

  • After your materials arrive to our office, we then schedule an installation day. Accessing your home is almost always needed, so we schedule your installation on a mutually beneficial day where you can allow us to enter your home or business.
  • Installation usually takes 10 days based on the size of your system.
  • After electrical and construction work is completed, final payment is made.
  • State and county inspections as well as commissioning are scheduled.

What kind of payment methods do you accept?

Cash, check, Venmo, PayPal, and credit cards are all accepted payment methods.
