Culver City is Accelerating the Adoption of Solar Energy

Culver City is uniquely positioned to maximize the benefits of solar

A wonderful city with a blend of suburban areas and thriving businesses, Culver City is a fantastic place to maximize the benefits of going solar. With the city’s exposure to plenty of sunlight, increasing power outages, and rising electricity costs Culver City is a great place to go solar.

Culver City is one of the best places to take advantage of the fast growing solar energy movement.

With the recent power outages from the Los Angeles Department of Water & Power (LADWP) that have impacted parts of Los Angeles including Culver City, there is no better way to protect your home from the recent power outages than with a solar energy system with a battery backup solution. With the steadily increasing electricity rate increases from LADWP and high amount of exposure from the sun, homeowners in Culver City should go solar. It will continue Culver City’s position as a fantastic place to live and do business.

For Culver City, Solar Energy Produces Savings

Although there are numerous reasons to go solar, most homeowners make the switch after seeing the recent savings on their electricity bills. Solar panels for your home or business can save you a lot of money by converting the high amount of sunlight that Culver City receives into usable energy that can power your refrigerator, hair dryer, washer and other household items.

According to the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) by owning a solar energy system, homeowners can increase their home’s resale value by an average of 17%. Cities, like Culver City where there are a lot of eco-conscientious homeowners, will tend to produce the highest increase in home value. Wouldn’t you prefer to live in a home that costs less to operate?

With a solar energy system, you can not only achieve great savings on your electricity bills, but you can also greatly improve the value of your home. In a competitive real estate market, it could be the deciding factor as to why a buyer picks your home over another.

Existing Solar Incentives for Culver City

If you’re looking to purchase your solar energy system vs. lease, you may be eligible for the Investment Tax Credit (ITC), more commonly referred to as the Federal Tax Credit. The tax credit provides a benefit for both home owners and businesses alike to go solar. We recommend that you consult with your tax professional about your eligibility to receive a tax credit or rebate when you do purchase a solar energy system.

Solar Pro Tip: Federal Tax Credit is only eligible for individuals who own their solar panel system. Does not qualify with a solar lease or Power Purchase Agreement.

Residential Federal PV Tax Credit

Solar ITC equal to 26% of the total qualified system costs of installing a solar power system in 2020.

Solar ITC incentive equal to 22% of the total qualified system costs of installing a solar power system in 2021.

Solar ITC incentive equal to 10% of the total qualified system costs of installing a solar power system in 2022.

The Solar ITC incentive expires in 2023, effectively dropping to 0%.

Commercial Federal PV Tax Credit

Solar ITC equal to 26% of the total qualified system costs of installing a solar power system in 2020.

Solar ITC equal to 22% of the total qualified system costs of installing a solar power system in 2021.

Solar ITC equal to 10% of the total qualified system costs of installing a solar power system in 2022.

A fixed tax credit rate of 10% will stay in place for installing a solar power systems installed in 2023 and beyond for commercial.

The amount of the Federal Solar ITC can be calculated easily. Simply take the tax percentage for that year, and multiply it by the solar system installation cost.  For instance, if your solar energy system costs $25,000 and is installed in 2022, your tax credit would be $25,000 x 10%= $2,500. If you install your solar energy system in 2020, for the same system, your tax credit would be $25,000 x 26%= $6,500. That means there is a $4,000 difference if you went solar in 2020 vs 2022 for the same system. We advise that you check with your tax professional regarding the tax credit or rebate when purchasing your solar energy system.

If you aren’t eligible for the ITC because you don’t incur any tax liability as a retiree, considering a lease may match your goals even better. By considering a solar lease or Solar Power Purchase Agreement (PPA), you will see a home improvement that will save you on electricity costs by replacing your more expensive bill with a smaller one. Imagine if LADWP offered a 15-year, 40% discount on your electricity costs, would you take it? Installing a solar energy system on your home or business is the best way to save money on your monthly electricity bills and increase the equity of your property.
