Top Questions About Solar Energy in Arizona

Arizona is known for its abundant sunshine, making it an ideal place for solar energy. As more and more homeowners and business owners look to switch to renewable energy, they have questions about solar systems and the benefits of solar energy. Here are some of the top questions and answers about solar energy in Arizona.

How does solar energy work?

Solar energy works by capturing the sun’s energy and converting it into electricity using photovoltaic (PV) panels. Photovoltaic cells in the panels take in photons from the sun and turn them into direct current (DC) electricity. This DC electricity is then converted into alternating current (AC) electricity, which is what powers your home or business.

How much does it cost to install a solar panel system in Arizona?

The cost of installing a solar panel system in Arizona will depend on a number of things, such as how much energy you have used in the past, how much you expect to use in the future, the size of the system, and the quality of the parts you choose.

You might also be able to change how much energy you use and live in more comfort if you install solar. Aside from saving money on energy, many people in Arizona choose solar because they can use as much electricity as they want for a small fraction of what it used to cost. This lets them turn the AC down a few more degrees in the summer to feel a chill or turn up the heat in the winter to feel warmer. Solar customers can also choose to use their appliances during what used to be called “on-peak hours.” This means they can do their laundry earlier in the day and don’t have to stay up late to run the dryer.

What are the current financial incentives for solar customers?

With federal and state incentives, you can expect to save thousands of dollars on the cost of installation.

How much are these incentives worth?

Federal Tax Credit: The current federal tax credit is 30%. How does this work? Taxpayers receive a dollar-for-dollar tax credit. This is deducted directly from your payment; you can take it all in one year or over time.

The Arizona State Government gives you up to a $1,000 tax credit.

In Arizona, there is no sales tax on solar.

What are the benefits of switching to solar energy in Arizona?

There are many benefits to switching to solar energy in Arizona, including:

  • Reduced energy costs: solar energy customers experience drastically reduced cost of energy, both now and over time.

  • Increased home value: studies show a buyer’s preference for choosing a house with solar over an identical house without it.

  • Reduced carbon footprint: solar energy is a clean and renewable energy source that helps reduce your carbon footprint and protect the environment.

  • Self-sufficient energy: Own your own power and protect yourself from rising energy costs and power outages.

  • Improved quality of life: Solar energy customers have greater control over the comfort of their environment without the concerns of expensive energy from the grid.

What is the best type of solar panel system for my home or business in Arizona?

The best type of solar panel system for your home or business in Arizona will depend on your energy needs and usage. Our team at Solar Shark will work with you to determine the best type of system for your needs and provide you with an accurate installation quote.

We only recommend Tier 1 panels with a 25-year warranty and a 25-year performance warranty to make sure you only ever need to purchase one solar array for life.

What happens if I don’t go Solar?

What happens if I don’t go Solar? Solar is becoming more and more popular. Look around, you will see solar producing energy on every street. Inevitably, more than half the homes will have solar, and when that happens, all houses that don’t have solar may be rentals or houses that would be considered fixer-uppers and hard to sell. A house with little to no electric bill is much more attractive to a potential home buyer.

Is it too late to go solar?

No, it’s never too late to go solar. The future of the world is reliant on sustainable energy, and the incentives today are as good as they are ever going to be. As more people put solar panels on their homes, there will be less reason for the government to offer incentives, and tax credits are set to decrease over time. Also, the electric companies are getting rid of “net metering,” which is the term for giving extra energy back to the electric company. Today’s solar customers can still take advantage of net metering incentives.
