Solar Savings Vs. Bank Savings

Compare solar with other investments you may be looking at. Most solar systems sited at appropriate sites have an internal rate of return of at least 10%, this means that for every dollar that is invested in solar, you will save 10% every year you own a solar system.  For most people, this makes money sense. When you switch to solar, you hedge against rising electric rates and lock in low, inflation free, predictable electricity costs for years into the future. As utility rates continue to rise, your savings will grow every year.

Residential Solar Rebate Tax Credit

Your solar equipment can also be depreciated.  Interest on loans may also enter into the tax credit calculation under section 266 of the tax code.
