There has never been a better time to install solar systems, protect the environment, and contribute to the growth of green jobs
West Palm Beach, FL (Vocus) October 26, 2010
EasySolarQuotes.com has announced that it has expanded its network of solar installers to the state of California. Now, homeowners and commercial businesses can fill out the simple form on the website and have up to three California solar companies contact them with free price quotes.
California leads the nation when it comes to green energy. Its prevalent sunshine makes it more economical than most places for implementing solar power projects. Installation of solar energy facilities has been encouraged through programs such as the California Solar Initiative (CSI), begun in 2006 by the California Public Utilities Commission. Providing over $3 billion in incentives to solar-related projects, the program aims to provide 3,000 megawatts of solar capacity in the state by 2016.
The CSI rebate program, by projecting energy production, enables users of solar power to receive $1.10 to $1.50 per kilowatt-hour of solar energy back from the State of California. For a system that produces 5,000 kilowatt-hours, homeowners can get anywhere from $5,500 to $7,500 back in California solar rebates.
Gregg Weiss, Founder of EasySolarQuotes.com commented, “Installing solar power is not only beneficial to the environment, but now carries a financial reward as well, by way of government incentives and tax rebates. As the solar market expands, EasySolarQuotes.com will be there to offer a hassel free way for homeowners to get the best deal on solar panel installation services.”
The only information required is the applicant’s name and contact information, the type of project, and the expected period. Little time is wasted on getting in touch with California solar installers, so home and business owners can start taking advantage of state and federal tax credits. Property tax exemptions for solar electric systems in California allow home property values to increase by as much as $30,000. In addition, for certain types of solar energy systems, installed by December 31, 2016, the California tax code allows for property tax exclusion, meaning a 100% property tax rebate on solar panel installation.
“There has never been a better time to install solar systems, protect the environment, and contribute to the growth of green jobs,” added Weiss.
