Why Go Solar in New Jersey

Many Georgians go solar everyday, partially because they like the freedom it gives, and partially because of the potential savings. Of course many homeowners are also trying to do something for the environment. The state actually has 312,450 homes on solar power as of 2020*, and the number keeps growing!

Solar Incentives in New Jersey

New Jersey requires investor-owner utilities and energy suppliers to offer net metering to qualified customers. Separate from net metering, New Jersey’s Transition Renewable Energy Credits (TREC) are vouchers that solar producers can earn, which can then be sold to utilities (who use the credits to meet their legal renewable energy requirements). New Jersey residents can also qualify for a sales tax exemption, and pay zero sales tax for their solar equipment, accessories, and installation. And there’s a similar property tax exemption which means you don’t pay additional property taxes based on the value solar adds to your home.

New Jersey 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 New Jersey

why choose 2

Lower your energy bills

New Jersey has above average residential energy rates. This makes the potential for savings huge when you install a solar system. Solar helps reduce the amount of power you need from the grid. This means you purchase less from your utility. If you have batteries, you can use the excess energy stored in the batteries in lieu of the grid energy.

Prepare for outages

Scheduled outages are normal and necessary, but they are inconvenient. Unforeseen weather may also cause outages and leave you without power. Installing batteries with your system allows you to store excess energy produced by the system, which can help power your home during outages. Talk to your dealer about what batteries best fit your lifestyle needs.
