Recent data shows New Jersey’s electric rates are more than 30% higher compared to the national average.1 Also, as our country’s electric grid ages and extreme weather events increase, power outages are more frequent and longer lasting.
On the bright side, the cost of home solar installations in our country is dropping fast.2 So teaming up with a Monmouth solar company like Sunrun is one of the smartest and most cost-efficient ways you can take control of your home electricity and get outage protection.
Aside from getting outage protection, controlling your electric bills in Monmouth County, and reducing your carbon emissions, New Jerseyans are eligible for great solar incentives, including New Jersey’s Solar Renewable Energy Certificates (SREC) program that lets you sell each excess 1,000 kilowatt-hours you create in exchange for cash during the first 10 years of your system’s life.3
In addition, if you decide to buy a home solar system in the Garden State, you’ll get a 30% federal solar tax credit for home solar systems installed by December 31, 2019. Starting in 2020, the value of the tax credit will step down to 26%, and then again to 22% in 2021. After 2021, the tax credit for residential solar ends. 4 And you can tap 100% sales and property tax exemptions on your total system cost.5
