Why 2022 Is the Year to Go Solar in Arizona
Have you been thinking about going solar but want to wait for the perfect time? Now’s your chance! The coming year offers excellent solar incentives and additional opportunities to save money with solar panels in Arizona. SouthFace Solar & Electric can help you take advantage of local and federal incentives, like the solar panel tax credit, so you can jumpstart your solar installation in 2022!
The Federal Solar Tax Credit Is the Highest It Will Ever Be
The solar investment tax credit (ITC) has long been one of the best solar incentives available in the United States. The ITC allows homeowners to effectively reduce their federal taxes owed by a percentage of their solar system’s total cost, making it easier for homeowners across the country to install residential solar.
The solar tax credit in 2021 and 2022 is worth 26% of your total installation cost, but that number is going to drop in 2023. Then, in 2024, the solar tax credit will be completely eliminated for homeowners, unless the tax credit is extended.
To qualify for the last year of the 26% solar tax credit, your system must be installed and turned on by December 31, 2022. SouthFace Solar & Electric can help you qualify for the 26% credit if you get your installation scheduled ASAP!
Get a Head Start on Electric Bill Savings
For many homeowners, lower electricity bills are the number one benefit of solar energy. Solar panels can power your home for free whenever the sun is shining, which means you can significantly reduce or even eliminate your electricity bills with solar. The sooner you get your system installed, the sooner you can:
- Reduce or eliminate your electric bills
- Avoid rising utility rates
- Stabilize your electricity costs
Protect Your Family Against Power Outages and Demand Charges
Power outages were a huge problem for homeowners across the US in 2021, and they continue to pose a threat. The good news is you can avoid them altogether with solar plus battery storage.
With solar batteries for your home, you’ll have backup power that you can use to keep your essential appliances running during an outage. Solar plus battery storage systems can also remain operational during a power outage (something grid-tied solar panels without batteries can’t do) so you can continue to generate electricity and keep your batteries charged while the grid is down.
SouthFace Solar & Electric installs some of the best-performing solar battery storage systems available. We can help you determine how many batteries you need to handle critical loads like your AC and refrigerator, or design a system that has the capacity to keep your entire home running.
Additionally, a solar battery system is a great way to avoid peak demand charges by continuing to use your renewable energy generated and stored during peak charging periods by your local utility.
Solar plus battery storage systems also qualify for the federal solar tax credit and if you’re a customer of APS, you could earn up to $3,750 with the APS solar battery pilot—get your installation underway in 2022 to qualify for the 26% credit before it drops.
