Eliminate Or Drastically Reduce Your Utility Bill
An average $175 per month electric bill becomes a $2,100 annual expense. By going solar you turn a liability into an asset and build equity in your home as opposed to giving your money to our local utility provider. This also protects you from rising energy costs.
Take Advantage Of State and Federal Incentives and Rebates
Before They’re Gone
2019 is the last year to reap the full benefits of the ITC. Rebates will begin stepping down for systems in service
after December 31, 2019.
The Federal Tax Investment (ITC) allows you to reduce your federal tax liability by up to 30% of the net cost of your solar energy system (that is, after other rebates and credits). The ITC applies only if you purchase your solar energy system. If you do not have a large enough tax liability to claim your entire credit, it can be rolled over into the next year.
Virtually every state in the country has some kind of support program for rooftop solar energy systems. But you’re especially fortunate if you’re going solar in New York State: we have some of the most ambitious solar incentives. The NY solar tax credit can reduce your state tax payments by up to $5,000 or 25% off your total solar energy expenses (whichever is lower).
Talking Dollars That Make Sense
Going solar is not an expense. It’s an investment. When placing an IslandWide Energy system on your roof you will instantly increase the value of your property.
A new Zillow analysis shows NY homes with solar energy systems sell for 5.4% more, on average than non-solar homes.
Homes with solar tend to sell 17-20% faster than conventional energy homes.
Fun Fact Fact
In one second, our sun produces enough energy to meet the current needs of the entire Earth for 500,000 years.
Reduce Greenhouse Gas
The largest source of greenhouse gas emissions from human activities in the US is from burning fossil fuels for electricity, heat, and transportation. Solar energy is 100% clean.
Protect Our Water
Coal-fired power plants alone account for 72% of all toxic water pollution in the country. Converting sunlight into electricity requires no water
On average, more jobs are created for each unit of electricity generated from renewable sources than from fossil fuels.
Placing panels on your home reduces overall reliance on standard energy sources that pollute the air we breathe.
