The Brattleboro Solar Summer campaign is generating lots of interest among Brattleboro residents. The goal of the campaign is to support Brattleboro homeowners, renters, landlords, and businesses in choosing locally generated renewable electricity. The price of solar PV panels is at an all-time low, and new limited-time incentives make solar affordable for all, including the Windham County Solar Loan Program through the Vermont State Employees Credit Union (VSECU), a 30% federal tax credit available through 2016, and a special incentive of $50-$200 per kilowatt offered by the five participating solar installers through September 30. The more Brattleboro residents sign up, the greater the discount.
The cost of electricity will likely continue to rise in the future. You can reduce or eliminate your monthly electricity bills by going solar – the average homeowner will save thousands of dollars over the contract term. Also, solar tax incentives may not be around forever – consider going solar now to take advantage of these low costs. Save money while reducing your carbon footprint!
For homeowners, businesses, or renters who prefer not to have solar panels at their site, buying shares in a community solar project is an option. Individuals and businesses may purchase solar panels located in an offsite solar array, and the credit that the panels generate will show up on their electric bills.
