With the cost of solar panels rapidly declining in the U.S.,1 there hasn’t been a better time for home solar. This is especially true in New Jersey, where devastating power outages are on the rise2 and electricity prices are increasing. In fact, recent data shows electric rates in Salem County are now more than 25% higher compared to the national average.3
That’s why choosing to go solar with a Salem County solar company like Sunrun is one of the smartest moves you can make to prepare for a cleaner, more affordable and reliable energy future.
Salem County solar consumers are eligible for New Jersey’s Solar Renewable Energy Certificates (SREC) program. This program allows you sell each excess 1,000 kilowatt-hours you create in exchange for cash during the first 10 years of your system’s life.4
And if you decide to purchase a home solar system in Salem, you’ll also get the federal solar tax credit,5 as well as 100% sales and property tax exemptions, on your total system cost.6
