New kitchen? New Car? Or a New Solar Energy System?
Study after study has proven solar is one of the hottest investments you can make as a homeowner. In a recent study by the New England Clean Energy group, 70% of homeowners surveyed claimed solar to be the best investment. In this same survey, 95% of solar-owners reported they were happy with their solar installation.
The Answer Is Easy: Invest in Solar
The primary advantage of solar is that when a solar system generates savings for a homeowner its yield is not taxable. Typically, a solar system will provide a ten to fifteen percent return per year. More specifically, a ten percent yield from solar equals on average generates at least a fifteen percent yield before taxes. It is almost impossible to find a ten percent annual after tax yield on an investment in today's economy that is as safe and secure as solar.
How much value does a solar energy system add to your home? The best summary is from an appraisal journal article written some time ago that states that any energy improvement made to your home adds twenty times the yearly energy savings in value. So, if a solar system saves you $1,000 a year in energy, it adds $20,000 to the value of your home. Few home improvements both add value to your home AND produce a valuable commodity year after year.
In addition, studies by the U.S. Department of Energy have shown investing in solar energy increase a homes value by an average of $17,000.
Additional studies have shown solar powered homes sell twice as fast.

Frequently Asked Questions About Solar Financing"Working with Premier Solar Solutions finance experts is a truly stress free experience."
Isn’t solar really expensive to purchase and install? It saves money on energy in the long term but what about the up-front costs – aren’t they prohibitive?
Most homeowners ask these questions. Many people love the idea of solar. They are aware that it is better for the environment and that they will save money on their utility bills but they have heard that installing solar can be expensive. In fact, tax credits and rebates can lower the cost by 50% or more!
What are some examples of solar rebates or solar incentives available to me as a homeowner?
There is a wide array of available funds to assist with residential solar energy installations. For example, the State of Nevada offers tax exemptions – solar panels will increase the value of your home, but you will not be charged additional property taxes. Plus additional incentives are coming from NV Energy later this year. Finally, the federal government allows you to deduct 30% of your solar system costs through what is called an Investment Tax Credit (ITC) when you file your taxes.
Do all solar installers offer the same level of solar financing assistance?What credits are available, who offers the credits or rebates, and how are they obtained? It can be really confusing! This is why you should consider these questions when choosing a solar system installer. Premier Solar Solutions prides itself on our knowledge of financing and leasing options, rebates, incentives, and what will work best for our clients. Premier Solar Solutions provides homeowners with consultants who will know what solar rebates you qualify for and will help you obtain what you are due. Most solar system installation companies offer a free consultation to help you determine where your home is energy inefficient. Premier Solar Solutions goes that extra step to include information on what your savings from rebates and incentives will be. Make sure that the company you select is knowledgeable and thorough and can assist you in this process.
The Smart Choice For Homeowners
Premier Solar Solutions is the smart choice for homeowners seeking the best value in service, return on investment, and overall customer satisfaction.
If you figure in all the rebates and incentives, solar can be quite affordable. Plus, the savings that you realize in the long run will pay for the system itself. Finally, you get the added bonus of knowing that you are helping the environment by using a clean and renewable energy for your home!
How To Understand Your Utility Bill

- Customer Account Charge:
The minimum charge for having service available, whether you used electricity or not
- Delivery Service Charge:
A charge, based on your kwh usage and/or kw demand, to build and operate the equipment for delivering electricity to your home/business, including lines, poles, transformers and substations

The cost of calculating and providing your monthly statement
- Generation of Electricity:
The cost of producing the electricity you used this month Federal Transmission and ancillary services: the cost for moving high voltage electricity from generating facilities and other sources to the aps distribution lines
- LFCR (lost fixed cost recovery) adjustor:
Because more customers are installing renewable energy systems such as solar and wind, and energy efficiency measures such as compact fluorescent light bulbs and refrigerator recycling, utility companies are selling less electricity, but fixed costs remain. Some utility providers are allowed to implement a new charge to recover a portion of those fixed costs.
- What are these fixed costs for?
Fixed costs are for items that are needed regardless of how much electricity is sold, such as power poles, wires and other delivery infrastructure.
