HURRY! PA Solar Grants Returning Briefly

SunPower Builders received some BIG news last week, and it could benefit YOU! 

The PA Sunshine Solar Program was awarded their LAST TIER of funding last week. This money will be granted on a first come first serve basis and surely won’t last long. 
Why is 2013 the year to add solar to install solar? 
Solar is as cheap to install right now as it will ever be.  
The cost of installing USA and EU made solar systems has dropped 35-65% since 2009.  Combined with the PA Sunshine state grant, 30% federal tax credit, SREC sales, and, for commercial systems, depreciation on equipment, solar electric systems can pay off in 1-5 years.    
Utility SREC procurement requirements will go up nearly 50% per year over the next several years. 
 With the introduction of proposed AEPS standards and SREC guidelines, we project PA SREC values to compete with surrounding Northeast states by increasing to over $250 each by 2015.  
What else should you know?
  • Residential PV systems are eligible for $0.75 per Watt for the first 10 kW or a total maximum of $7,500.00 from the PA Sunshine Fund.
  • Commercial PV systems are eligible for $0.75 per Watt for the first 10 kW, $0.50 per Watt for the next 90 kW from the PA Sunshine Fund.
  • Applications to the PA Sunshine Fund will be received on a first come first serve basis, regardless of whether the application is commercial or residential.
  • Federal tax credits of 30% of system cost are still available, and prices for USA made systems have dropped up to $2.00 per watt from 2 years ago.

SunPower Builders can eliminate your electric bill with a custom-designed solar energy solution, and you can earn extra income with SREC sales. SunPower Builders will design and install a solar system that blends with the architecture of your home, or your solar installation can be hidden on a barn, outbuilding or even ground mounted.
