Woodland Hills, Calif. (PRWEB) January 23, 2013
California’s use of solar energy is skyrocketing. Thanks to lucrative rebates and tax incentives the California Solar Initiative has now funded enough solar power systems to generate 1 gigawatt of electricity – the highest of any state in the country.
Launched in 2007, the $2.4 billion California Solar Initiative aims to install enough solar power systems to generate 3 gigawatts of power by 2016. The program is part of California’s Million Solar Roofs Initiative, a $3.3 billion package of financial incentives offered by the state to jumpstart California’s solar industry.
According to Solar Center’s Sergio Bruna – Southern California’s leading provider of integrated and renewable energy products - customers who install solar energy systems can expect to save thousands of dollars on their utility bills in addition to enjoying the rebates and tax breaks provided by the California Solar Initiative.
The rebates offered by the California Solar Initiative decline over time and are now 92 percent lower than they were when the program began. “Consumers should take advantage of this program now!” says Bruna. “Once these rebates are gone, they’re gone. It’s really a no brainer.”
Bruna also recommends that consumers do their research and make sure they contact a reputable solar contractor such as Solar Center. “There are lots of unscrupulous companies out there trying to take advantage of not only consumers but the government’s programs as well. You need to call a professional company such as Solar Center who has the experience to make sure you get all of the incentives you are entitled to as well top of the line products and professional installation.”
Solar Center offers a way to save thousands on energy costs and to increase your property value without increasing your property tax.
