Turn your roof or parking lot into a low-maintenance power plant that will take care of all your energy needs and generate another stream of revenue.
SunWind has been trusted by hundreds of home and businessowners throughout Cape Cod and Eastern Massachusetts, and we have installed over 500 kW of solar power and counting.
The benefits of going solar are not just limited to contributing to the environment by generating clean energy, there are also many financial incentives in place that make going solar a lucrative investment.
These incentives include a tax credit of $1,000 from the commonwealth of Massachusetts and a federal tax credit worth 30% of the cost of the system. There are also various other tax credits and deductions that businesses can take advantage of, depending on the renewable energy solution that they opt for. For further information, check out the database for state incentives, or give us a call at 508.258.7277.
On top of that, there is the savings provided by net metering. Simply put, net metering means that the owner is credited for any excess energy that is generated by the system, in effect spinning your meter backwards, and that energy is to be counted against your electric bill. With a properly-sized system, you can offset your entire electric bill.
Massachusetts also requires that utility companies in the commonwealth invest a certain amount in renewable energy, allowing you to monetize your solar production in the form of credits that are paid out for each megawatt-hour (mWh) of energy produced over the first 40 quarters of operation. The additional revenue from SRECs (solar renewable energy credits) is substantial enough to provide a fast return on investment, but the program is slated to be replaced by the DOER’s SMART program, so the time to act is now to get in on this lucrative incentive. SunWind facilitates the process of cashing in on SRECs by partnering with Knollwood Energy, and our customers generated a total of 448 SRECs in 2016 alone.
We consult with each of our customers to discuss the best energy solution and financing scenario based on their budget, usage needs, and design preferences.
