We all know we should be doing more to use renewable energy and to be more efficient in our use of said energy, but sometimes the cost of doing so is just too much for an individual to bear. The average cost to install solar panels for your house is around $16,000, which is pretty steep. But what if there was a way for the state and federal government to help you pay for those solar panels? Now, obviously saving money is not the primary reason to install solar panels….it would take you years and years to make that money back in solar energy. But the environmental impact you could make would be enormous! So if you are interested in installing energy savers at your house, you should check out this site I found called DSIRE. They are a one stop source for incentives and rebates that state and federal government can provide for you when installing these systems. Sometimes they cover such a huge percentage of the install that it is a no-brainer to put them in!
So if you are looking for help paying for your system, be sure to check out DSIRE to find out what may be available to you!
