Here’s why you should consider solar roof installation in 2022
Green home upgrades for energy efficiency and environmental friendliness are becoming more popular every year. From green roofs to cool roofs, we’re seeing more and more demand for roofing projects aimed at making buildings more sustainable. As you look to upgrade your home to become greener, you may also be considering a solar roof installation—and we’re here to tell you that 2022 is the year to get it done!
There are many excellent incentives for adding solar energy to your home, and the cost-saving benefits of a solar roof installation only increase with time. That means the earlier you can add solar panels to your home, the better! At Elite Roofing, we’ve partnered with SunPower to provide our customers with streamlined solar roof installation services. Here’s why going solar in 2022 can mean big savings!
Reduce your energy bills
The biggest reason to add solar panels to your home is to save money on energy bills. The right solar array can completely power your home on sunny days, leaving you with net zero energy consumption many days out of the year and greatly reducing your energy bills.
On days where your home generates more than your family consumes, you can trade this energy as credits with your utility company. These cost-saving benefits only arrive once your solar array is fully functional, but once set up, the savings and energy credits start accruing immediately!
Start saving immediately
According to Energy Star, a typical household spends more than $2,000 per year on utility bills. While not all of this is electricity, much of it is, which means solar panels carry a lot of cost-savings potential. The sooner you install, the more you can save over the course of a year—and if you install by summer, you’ll minimize the savings you miss out on by capitalizing on the brightest days of the year.
Install before summer arrives
Solar panels are naturally more effective on days with more sunlight. If you start your solar roof installation project now, you’ll have a full solar array ready for the sunniest days of the year throughout the Colorado summer. This ensures you get the most from your solar installation in the very first year of ownership.
Earn tax credits and rebates
While solar panels do plenty to generate savings for you all on their own, there are also many tax credits and rebates available. These credits and rebates help to reduce the upfront cost of a solar roof array installation, which further improves their cost-efficiency and keeps more money in your pocket.
Today’s incentives are significant, with a 26% tax credit offered for solar arrays installed before the end of 2022. This means that up to 26% of the total cost to install a solar energy system on your home can be deducted from your taxes. However, this credit drops to 22% starting in 2023—so install this year to maximize your benefits!
