Solar is a hot topic when it comes to managing home energy costs and protecting the environment. Solar-ready homes take the guesswork out of what you need by having the right solar features for your family. Make the move to solar and say goodbye to high energy costs, pollution, and annoying electrical shutoffs.

Three Key Reasons Why A Solar-Ready Home Makes Good Sense

Purchasing a solar-ready home takes the guesswork out of making your existing home solar-powered. Tim Lewis Communities offers a variety of options and solutions for choosing your new Northern California or Nevada home. Not only are the homes beautiful and the amenities appealing, but the solar features also make a Tim Lewis home a smart idea for the following reasons:

1. Reduced Energy Bills

Solar can offset your electricity bill by 83-113 percent. The total amount of your monthly savings depends upon household usage, however, reduced energy bills are always a welcome sign to any homeowner.

2. Tax Rebate Incentive

2020 is the year to go solar if you haven’t already. The time is right to take advantage of the Solar Investment Tax Credit (ITC). It is a tax rebate incentive offered by the federal government and it can save you 26 percent on taxes when it comes to your solar home investment.

3. Saying Goodbye to PG&E Shut Offs

PG&E conduct “Public Safety Power Shut Off” (PSPS) when the forecast calls for dry conditions, gusty winds, and heightened fire risk. A solar system and a battery backup can reduce the time your energy is shut off, allowing you more freedom and less dependency on PG&E.

These are just a few reasons why choosing solar is a popular option for many new homebuyers. Not only is solar cleaner and more efficient, but it can also reduce your stress by providing dependable energy and lowering your monthly fuel costs.
