Solar Planet would like to introduce you to our latest addition...
According to the Solar Energy Industries Association, the U.S. installed 4,751 MW of solar PV in 2013, up 41% over 2012 and nearly fifteen times the amount installed in 2008. Twenty-nine percent of all new electricity generation capacity added this year in the U.S. came from solar--with seven states getting 100% of their new generation from solar. Solar was the second-largest source of new electricity generating capacity in the U.S., exceeded only by natural gas. As the cost of solar continues to fall, we forecast 26% PV installation growth in 2014, with installations reaching nearly 6 GW. Growth will occur in all segments, but will be most rapid in the residential market.
The lower cost of solar technology combined with the 30% Federal Tax Credit has made "Going Green" with solar more feasible and lucrative than ever. Iowa customers can create even more savings by taking advantage of our unique State Tax Credit which is 50% of the Federal Tax Credit. Wisconsin customers have the opportunity to take advantage of the Focus on Energy rebate again this year, in addition to the Federal tax credit.
An investment in solar energy is always a wise decision because you will always need electricity, and electricity will always cost more. Additionally, an investment in solar energy will not only help save the planet and secure a brighter future for our children, it will pay for itself many times over.
