There are many reasons to use solar panels to power your home. Because solar equipment prices have fallen significantly in the last decade, solar power is a wise investment in Maine that can save you $100 or more each month!
Grid-tied solar systems generate electricity to power your home. If more power is needed, such as during the night, energy is drawn from the utility grid. When your residential solar power system produces more energy than needed, the excess is fed back into the utility grid and you are credited for future use.
From Bath, Freeport, Yarmouth, Bangor, Augusta, Bar Harbor and beyond, the Sundog Solar team can virtually eliminate your electricity bill! Many of our satisfied customers report saving over $100 on average each month. In fact, most solar panel systems pay for themselves with the savings in just eight years while the system is designed to last three decades.
Many homeowners want to use clean, renewable energy to power their homes, increasing their energy independence. From Portland to Camden, Bangor, and Calais – using solar energy allows Maine families to reduce their dependence on imported fossil fuels and to boost our local economy.
Because solar panels can slash your electricity bills, the return on investment from a residential solar system rivals many investments. The solar panels and components we install are extremely reliable and are virtually maintenance free. Our solar equipment has long warranties, protecting your investment for years to come.
The federal government offers a tax credit on federal income taxes for 30% of the total system cost, including solar panels and labor. This is an excellent opportunity to significantly reduce the total cost of installing a solar system. Hurry, as the percentage of the solar tax credit is scheduled to taper off in future years.
A tax credit is more lucrative than a tax write-off, as it results in a dollar for dollar reduction in income taxes owed. For example, a $10,000 solar system could reduce your tax burden by $3,000. We also offer a great financing option, allowing homeowners to go solar for $0 down and 2.99% APR for 12 years.
Solar technology advances allow your system to produce more energy in a smaller space and overcome issues from shading. Sundog Solar uses power optimizers and microinverters to boost overall energy production. We use some of the best solar panels and equipment in the industry, including Canadian Solar, Hanwha Q-cells, LG Solar, Solaria, SolarEdge, SMA, Silfab, Pika Energy, Schneider Electric Conext, Enphase, and SMA Sunnyboy products.
Do you want to know how much electricity your solar PV system is producing? Web-based solar monitoring allows you to have a wealth of solar system output information at your fingertips. Our solar monitoring systems deliver real-time and historical system output data from anywhere. The information can be formatted in different ways, including graphs and charts.
