A “perfect (solar) storm” of incentives has engulfed the Gopher State to start 2010. And it’s important to note Minnesota: it’s here today but no guarantees how long it will last.
Ergo: If you have ever considered, thought about or pondered solar PV for a property in Minnesota, the time is now. You will be kicking yourself for decades if this passes you by.
What it is:
- Solar PV investments qualify for State of Minnesota Rebates of up to $2.00 a watt — $10,000 max grant — through March 31st. (It drops to $1.75 and $8,750 max grant from April 1st through September, should the State money last that long….)
- Xcel Energy customers can qualify for “Solar Rewards” of an additional $2.25 a watt, up to an astounding 40 kW size system. (Gulp!) That incentive has a bigger pool of capital behind it.
- Federal Tax Credits of 30% apply to the balance after incentives are applied.
Add it up. That comes out to a clear 66% reduction in the cost of clean, safe, renewable solar energy.
Or, in other words: your investment in solar energy, which increases the value of your property, cuts utility bills and increases its market appeal, costs you only $0.33 cents on the dollar!
If one considers that PV panel prices have dropped significantly over the last 18 months, it essentially means there has never been a better time to put up solar panels in Minnesota. Ever.
And if quality matters, and it certainly should given the size, term length and importance of a solar investment, then there is only one real alternative. Sunpower modules. Energy Concepts is happy to have you compare, research, ask questions and generally educate yourself about the inherent value of Sunpower panels. Go ahead. We dare you.
We double-dare you.
When you are done, and have realized that there is not a better, durable, more trusted or more productive solar panel anywhere on the market, you, like the rest of our customers, will give the only exclusive Sunpower dealer in this region a call.
Or, save yourself a lot of work, time and energy and just call Energy Concepts right now at 715-381-9977.
When the right investment choice is this obvious, putting off a decision literally means being willing to stand at the back of the line. And while that might not sound bad, remember: when the State of Minnesota money is gone, it’s not going to be replenished any time soon. Back of the line could well mean: Sorry pal, you missed out on a once-in-a-lifetime deal.
