Take Advantage of Incentives

The Solar Investment Tax Credit is a federal tax credit for those who purchase and install residential or commercial solar energy systems. The credit, which is applied to a homeowner’s federal income tax return debt, is equal to a percentage of the cost of eligible equipment. Contact us today to discuss your solar project and if you could benefit from the tax credit. The sooner you act the more you can start saving!

It May Feel Scary Going Solar...

Though it may feel like a daunting process, our professional and educated team is here for you every step of the way from estimation to installation! Give us a call or send us a message below to contact our Solar Team!

Virtual Estimate

Our Solar Team can provide you a no-obligation basic quote, including savings from local and federal incentives. We consider your average monthly utility usage and use satellite imagery of your roof to determine your ideal system size.

Site Assessment

One of our System Designers will do a no-obligation in-person survey of your property to obtain a more accurate proposal and design the best system for you.

New Construction

When you are ready, send us a copy of your plan set to receive a free consultation with a system designer. Then schedule a pre-wire to make your home solar-ready, or design a system based on your roof layout to maximize solar production and meet your energy needs.


There are many different incentives, programs, and loans to help finance your new solar installation. The Center for Energy and Environment is a non-profit organization that offers energy efficiency solutions and low-interest financing for homeowners and businesses with secured/unsecured loans, home energy or improvement loans, and solar financing loans.
