Why Go Solar?

Here are the key reasons we think solar is awesome

Big Savings Now, Bigger Savings Later

Solar energy will not only drastically reduce your bills now, but as utility energy prices continue to rise, you'll be shielded from higher electricity costs in the future

Solar Tax Incentives

2019 is the last year to claim the full 30% Federal Tax Credit for Solar. The credit allows you to reinvest your debt to Uncle Sam back into your own home.

Save the World (You Can Help!)

The clean energy generated by your solar system will impact more than your utility bill -- It reduces our collective reliance on fossil fuels and helps in the fight against climate change.

Why Go Solar With Peloquin?

Extra benefits of going solar during your home’s construction

Solar + Mortgage = Easy Decision

Wrapping solar into your mortgage allows you to defer the upfront cost and your solar savings will be higher than the increase in your monthly mortgage payment.

Easy Breezy Installation Process

You'll be able to start your solar savings on move in day, no more permits to sounds or background construction noises -- just sweet solar savings!

Solar Power = Added Home Value

Solar is an asset not an expense. National and state studies show that the majority of the solar's initial cost are absorbed by the value it adds to your home.

A Blueprint for Zero Energy Homes

Adding solar to a Peloquin home provides an opportunity for homeowners to push their net energy usage down to zero. While the ability to reach net zero depends on a specific home’s roof size and orientation and isn’t possible in every situation, Peloquin is leading the charge in making zero energy homes attainable for a wider audience than ever before. By adding an 8.7 kilowatt solar system to the average Peloquin Home a homeowner can reach net zero energy usage!
