During the past 10 years, almost 3 million Wisconsin households have been affected by power outages.1 The aging U.S. power grid needs substantial upgrades so it can keep up with our increasing demand for more electricity.2 While government agencies and electric companies work on modernizing the grid, teaming up with a Wisconsin solar company like Sunrun makes sense. Home solar costs have dropped by more than 70% over the last decade.3
Switching to solar means, you’ll help build a modern, clean local energy system and effectively take control of your electric bills. The average residential electric rate in Wisconsin is 11% higher compared to other states.4
As the largest residential solar, storage and energy services company in the nation5, Sunrun puts power in your hands, simply and affordably.
Interested in installing home solar panels in Wisconsin to create your own clean energy and get some of the best solar incentives in the country? With Sunrun, you have the choice to purchase your rooftop solar panels upfront with BrightBuy™ or, for $0 down and low, fixed monthly payments with BrightAdvantage™. Both solar plans let you own the Sunrun solar panels and solar power for life while experiencing a jump in your home value.5
As a new home solar system owner, you’re eligible for attractive Wisconsin solar tax credits and rebates, including a federal solar tax credit6* and a property tax exemption on the added home value from your system’s cost. Also, purchased systems are 100% free from state sales tax.7 That’s up to 5.6% in instant savings.
In addition, if your electric company participates in Renew Wisconsin’s Focus on Energy program, you could qualify for a solar rebate of 12% of your system’s cost up to $2,000, or up to $4,000 if you live in a rural area.8
Whether or not you finance or purchase your system, home solar panels are designed to last 30 years or longer. So you can be happy with going solar for decades.
Wisconsin Governor Tony Evers has set a goal to have all the electricity produced in the state be 100% carbon-free by 2050.9 Wisconsin electric companies Alliant Energy,10 Madison Gas and Electric (MGE),11 We Energies (WEC Energy Group)12 and Xcel Energy13 have already taken action to reduce the state’s carbon emissions.
You can support the Badger State’s ambitious goal by going solar with Sunrun today. But creating your own Wisconsin solar energy won’t just reduce your carbon emissions. As a residential solar consumer, you could also earn credits for the electricity you add to the grid, thanks to Wisconsin’s net metering program.14
