To encourage Americans to use solar power, the E.P.A, I.R.S. and the D.O.E. offer Solar Rebates in Show Low and the surrounding White Mountains of Arizona. These are also know as "solar rebates". You can also get Solar Tax Credits in Show Low and the surrounding White Mountains of Arizona too. When you add all these rebates and tax credits it can reduce the true cost of a new system by as little as 30% to over 50%. These Incentives and rebates are being phased out so if you are thinking about solar now is the time to take action.
You get a 30% Tax Credit based on the price of your system. This is a CREDIT and not a deduction or deprecation which is a huge difference. For example if you purchase a $10,000 dollar solar system you would automatically get $3,000.00 credit to the IRS!! So, the IRS will take $3,000.00 off your taxes owed!!! This is money you were already having to pay but now you get it back in a refund added on to any refund you would normally get. So, the IRS is saying you can give us the $3,000.00 if you don't get Solar but if you do get Solar Panels then we will let you spend the $3,000.00 on the system so your net cost is only $7,000. This is like FREE MONEY back to you. But, these tax credits only last until the end of 2019 and then faze out at 10% less each year until totally gone in 2021.
Under Arizona Tax Laws you will automatically qualify for a $1,000.00 tax credit on your state income taxes. This is a little different then the Federal Tax Credit which is base on a percentage of the total cost. In Arizona you get $1,000.00 Credit no matter the cost of the system.
Navopache Electric or NEC offers a great rebate along with what is called Net Metering for their customers.
The Rebate is 50 Cents a Watt up to a maxium of $5,000.00!!! On an average system to replace a $100 a month electricy bill this can mean over $3,000 that Navopache will pay you in Cash to go solar.
NEC also offers "Net Mettering" which means you will get a 1 to 1 credit on your bill for any extra energy your system produces. Bottom line is that NEC will make so you never have a bill from them for electrical usage again. Most likely you can make a little money each year off of them.
APS has dropped all their rebates for going solar at this time. BUT, they still offer to pay you a "tariff" or a fixed amount of 12.9 Cents for each Kilowatt Hour your system produces and gives back to the grid.
What does that translate to in the real world? That means you can actually make money off your solar panels and system. APS will limit you from having a system a lot bigger then you need so you won't make millions but you can make more then enough that after one year you will be paying zero for the electricity you buy from them and still have a little money left over.
