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 Incentives

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.

CREDITS AND REBATES

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.

NET METERING

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.

RENEWABLE ENERGY CREDITS

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.

The Process

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.

  • Following a site visit in which we measure and assess the condition of the roof (for roof-mounted systems), analyze the composition and slope of the terrain (for ground-mounts), and complete a shading analysis, we will send you a detailed proposal.
  • Upon approval from the customer, we begin the permitting process and applying for approval from all authority-having jurisdictions (such as homeowners’ associations, historical societies, etc.) as needed.
  • Once the project is permitted, we schedule an install date with the customer and an expected completion date.
  • After completion of the install, we schedule an inspection and get you interconnected to the utility grid and handle all the paperwork to make sure you get the most of all available incentives.
