Net Metering is a process in which your system is allowed to produce more energy than you can use during certain times of the year. During these times, your new Net Meter will feed that excess energy into the local power grid while tracking how much electricity was sent out. The biggest benefit of the Net Metering program is that your excess energy is returned to you in the form of a usable credit. On days where your system may not produce as much electricity as you use, you will be able to pull any credits you have stored back into your home at no charge to you.
The government has made the Solar Investment Tax Credit (ITC) available, where they credit back 26% of the total cost of the solar energy system in the form of a tax credit. The Solar ITC only applies to homeowners that bought their solar energy system using a solar loan or cash.
When doing taxes, the property tax exemption allows homeowners to not include the added value of the home due to the installation of solar panels. This helps avoid an increase in property tax due to the raise in equity to your home by going solar.
When you purchase a solar energy system, you are exempt from paying sales tax on said purchase. This exemption is helping a ton of homeowners become solar owners AND save massively on their energy bills.
