The costs of rooftop solar panels2 and battery storage systems have plummeted in Pennsylvania.4 What’s more, Pennsylvania is one of the few states that offers a Solar Renewable Energy Certificate (SREC) program. This performance-based incentive could let you earn one SREC for every megawatt-hour (MWh) of electricity your home solar energy system produces. You can later sell your SRECs to your utility and earn some extra cash each year.5,6

If you make the switch with a Philadelphia solar company like Sunrun today, you’ll also get reliable protection during unexpected outages and reduce your home carbon emissions for decades.
