Vision Solar: Solar and Halloween

Solar Power and Your Halloween Decorations

Spooky Season is officially here. For those of you who love to decorate your home in all kinds of Halloween decorations, we know that this can be pricey. Between you giant blow-up spider, and your orange colored lights, your electricity bill can skyrocket during these months. Well, switching to solar is the answer to your problems. Solar energy has the ability to let you decorate freely with no fears of your electricity bill increasing. Here is how solar can actually save you money this Halloween season rather than suck your pockets dry.

Incentives:

Each state has a multitude of incentives in place for switching to solar.  In Florida and New Jersey the current solar incentives that are still in place include: Federal Solar Tax, Sales Tax Exemption, and Property Tax Exemption. The Federal Solar Tax is a way for you to earn 26% of the installation costs back. The Property Tax Exemption earns consumers up to $15,000 in savings because your property tax will not go up with the installation of solar panels. Last but not least, the solar sales tax exemption prevents you from having to pay sales tax on your solar panels.

Environment:

With your solar panels, you can ensure that there will be plenty more Halloweens to come in the future. For just one year, this year has been filled with enough negative news to last a lifetime. However, a small piece of positivity that has come from 2020 is the environmental impacts that have occurred. Because productivity has been less, pollution has seen a significant drop. Switching to solar in 2020 is the perfect way to continue with this positive trend. Having a cleaner source of energy is supporting the environment that you live in. We all should be supporters in making the world a cleaner place for our future generations.

Savings:

The savings that come from solar power are one of the major benefits that consumers recognize immediately. The average homeowner spends about $112 on their electricity per month. This is dependent on how much they are being charged per kWh from their electric company. However, with solar power, your new bills will now be based on a fixed flat rate. Your rate will be based on the amount of panels that you need to power your home and also the new rate for your electricity. Not only this, but your new electricity never goes unused or wasted. With net metering in place, the electricity that you produce during the day may be more than what you are using. Your panels then use this electricity to power your home throughout the night when the sun is not out. By using the extra energy that is generated throughout the day, your panels are essentially paying for themselves. On top of this, any excess energy that is produced that you do not use throughout the month will then be used as a credit for your bill. The average home will save upwards of 20% on their electricity bill each month. Your savings will create extra money to buy all of that candy you need for those trick-or-treaters.
