3 Reasons to Say YES to Solar!

Change is hard. We know. BUT...if you're still going back and forth about whether or not you're ready to #GoSolar - beyond the obvious cost savings - here are three solid reasons that help prove that solar really is the best choice. And the cute kids below are two bonus reasons to work with Bare Energy ;)

DOES SOLAR INCREASE THE VALUE OF MY HOME? YES! The average increase in the selling price of a home in California with solar is a whopping $20,000 (based off the average 5kW/5,000W system size in CA with each watt of solar adding an average of $4 to the home's value) *Selling Into the Sun: Price Premium Analysis of a Multi-state Dataset Of Solar Homes (Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, 2015)

IS THERE STILL A FEDERAL TAX CREDIT? YES - and the 26% tax credit rate was extended for two more years! If installing a system on a primary or secondary residence before December 31, 2022, you're eligible for the 26% federal residential solar energy tax credit. The credit decreases to 22% in 2023, and expires starting in 2024 (unless Congress renews it).

DOES CONVERTING TO SOLAR REALLY HAVE A SIGNIFICANT ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT? YES! Solar is a clean and renewable energy source, unlike the non-renewable alternative, fossil fuels. Using solar reduces harmful greenhouse gas emissions and your carbon footprint.

Go clean, go solar!
