Why Go Solar in Delaware

Not only does Delaware ensure you can get net metering, but both large utility companies in the state offer some kind of incentive. Delaware is also one of the few states that offers Renewable Energy Certificates (SRECs), another opportunity to get paid for the energy you produce. Right now may be the perfect time to go solar in Delaware!

Solar Incentives in Delaware

Delaware is one of the few states who participate in a Solar Renewable Energy Certificates (SRECs) program. You can sell your SRECs to participating utilities. This is on top of Delaware’s Net Metering programs that also allow you to sell excess energy to your utility at the retail rate. Delmarva Power is currently offering a Green Energy Grant, $1,000 incentive for qualified customers.Delaware homeowners are also eligible for the Solar Investment Tax Credit (ITC).*** The ITC allows you to deduct 26 percent of the cost of installing a solar energy system from your federal taxes.

Benefits of Solar in Delaware

why choose 2

Lower your energy bills

Delaware homeowners see above average electricity rates. Time of use (TOU) billing could be partially to blame. Depending what time you are using energy, your bill may be higher. Rather than pay high TOU rates, install a solar system to run on sunshine. Your system can power your home during the day. If you have batteries, you likely won’t need any energy at night either!

Prepare for outages

Delaware is known for independence. With batteries and a solar system, you too can have the freedom to power your home. In the event of a power outage, you can keep your lights on using your battery stored power. Installing a solar system will give you peace of mind knowing you won’t be left in the dark.

Preserve Delaware's outdoors

Delaware is full of beaches and beautiful outdoors. Many homeowners decide to go solar to preserve the state’s outdoor beauty and to feel good about reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Greenhouse gas emissions, such as CO2 contribute to pollution and climate change.

Have predictable payments

If you are currently on a Time of Use (TOU) rate plan, you may want to go solar. Electricity is more expensive at certain hours of the day or months of the year. Your solar system may produce enough energy so you only pay the minimum toward your utility. Then you can budget your monthly solar cost. Your monthly bills will be much more predictable.

Invest in your home

If you ask your neighbors, some of them have already gone solar to build equity. Going solar may add value to your home and may help it sell faster. The average Delaware home is currently valued at $284,787, that is a 9.6%* annual increase from last year. Keep up with the rising home values, especially if you want to sell in the future.**
