If you wish to enjoy solar power benefits in Arizona, there is no reason to wait until spring. Many people do so because they are accustomed to starting new projects in springtime, or they believe there will not be enough sun to operate solar panels in fall and winter. This is not the case, however, and now may be the best time to order installation. If you are interested in solar power for your home, here are four reasons to start the process now:
- Contractors are less busy: When you schedule an installation for fall, it’s likely to be before the big rush hits. We are able to evaluate, design and build more quickly if you start installing solar in fall or winter. You will not face the same backup that other consumers do when they wait until sunnier months, and you may also secure a better deal. While you are always guaranteed a fair price with reputable installers, you may be at a greater advantage cost-wise at this time of year. You never know what we may be able to offer.
- Enjoy tax incentives: This year, there is a 26 percent price reduction on solar systems through a federal tax deduction. When 2021 begins, this incentive drops to 22 percent, with the credit disappearing entirely in 2022. For commercial properties, you still receive the credit, but it drops to 10 percent. So, the longer you wait, the more likely you will miss out on this credit. There is no time like the present to enjoy solar power and save a little money.
- Early preparation: While everyone else is scrambling to get their solar power systems ready for the peak sunshine days of summer, you will be ready. There are many steps to installing solar power, including evaluation, design, permits and approval. By the time peak sunlight starts, your solar power will be ready and operating. Since summer is a high energy demand season in Arizona, you will be saving money on cooling and power before you know it! Everyone else will be hoping their system is operational by fall.
- You still receive power: There is still sunlight in fall and winter, and while those may not be the peak seasons, you will still enjoy the benefits of solar panels. Even if your mountain property faces cloudy days and snow, your panels still produce electricity that can supplement any power you need from a grid. The only issue is that you may have to sweep snow or ice off the panels, but most of the time, it will slide right off. Also, electronics survive well in colder temperatures because they are less likely to overheat. That is true for your solar panels as much as your other home appliances.
