Easy Solar Power with a Home Improvement Loan

A Simple Home Improvement Loan Gets Easy Solar Power for Your House

In article #5, you learned why buying local is the best way to install solar power for your home or business. Now, it is time for me to discuss why a home improvement loan is the best way to finance your system and then for  you to contact us to get a free estimate on the savings your new solar system will generate with all the electricity.

One thing nobody wants when it comes to money is surprises. Especially when it comes to payments to others. Winning the lottery is a pleasant surprise. But unexpected, large bills, are not so welcome, right? Valley  Solar Expert wants our customers to never have unpleasant surprises when it comes to bills.

That is why we offer home improvement loans instead of leases. Home improvement loans require a fixed payment every month, and they stop when the loan is paid off. Leases never really end. As we discussed in an earlier article, with leased solar electricity systems, you also pay for the electricity that you generate, even when you don’t use it and it goes back into the grid. So the most sunny months can lead to the highest bills with leases, and the limit is dependent on the maximum capacity of your system.

But with a loan, you get credits on the most sunny days and months, and your overall expenses go down. Your loan payment is fixed, but your utility bill will go down the most at the sunniest periods. This is how you would expect.  Even on months with little sun in mid-winter, your loan payment is still the same, and you don’t pay anything for the electricity you generate and use. So, your out of pocket expenses are both predictable and capped when you finance your solar with a loan.

Let’s review tax credits when comparing loan vs. lease options. When you finance with a loan, the tax credits and incentives from California and Federal stay with you and can reduce your own tax obligation. Who doesn’t want that? Who doesn’t like that?

If you get a lease, then the credits will go to the solar company and their investors. We care about you, so we don’t see the point in your tax credits being assigned to someone else. We know you already pay enough in taxes, too much, right? So home improvement loan is the way to go.

Maybe you are wondering, can I get a loan in these hard times? I can’t answer you from here on a web page, but it is easier than you might think. Some people might be able to get a loan against home equity. Maybe you will even qualify for a zero-down payment loan, and the construction can begin with no money at all out of your pocket –  your payments won’t even start until your easy solar power system is generating savings already for you. Regardless of your financial situation, we will do what we can to find you the best loan for you.

These reasons and more are why a home improvement loan provided by Valley Solar Expert is  the best choice .  So contact us by our simple web form, or call Aaron at 559-789-1377. Tell Aaron you saw this web site because the more you make him smile, the more he can help you smile with lower electricity costs at your home or business! Own your solar power and your  days of paying too much for electric are over!

Tulare County Solar Power Serves You Best

Valley Solar Expert is a Tulare County Solar Company. Buying local always helps the local economy and is best for you.

In article #4, I showed you how owning your own solar is the best option for you. Now, let’s discuss whether you should buy from a distant company that maybe has a local sales team, or from a local company that is entirely local.

Buying from a local company has lots of advantages:

  1. All kinds of jobs are created: Valley Solar Expert maintains not only sales teams, but also management, office, project management and installer jobs.
  2. Leadership understands local needs: Jim Tyler, owner of Valley Solar Expert lives right in Tulare County. He understands from personal experience the variations in weather and patterns of electricity use that occur here. Because of this, he has his teams design and install solar electricity systems that use the best components that work best here.
  3. Employees are part of your community: Jim Tyler and everyone at Valley Solar Expert lives in Tulare County and participates in county events, shops here, in short we are the same as you. This means Valley Solar has an interest in seeing you satisfied over the long term.  Nothing makes us happier than meeting happy clients around town, and nothing drives us harder than wanting to make that happen.
  4. We share your interest in green energy. We know that in today’s day and age, it is important to run your home or business in as green a manner as possible. Less wastes, less pollution, it’s good for all of us. Valley Solar Expert has that at the heart of everything we do. Not only do we install non-polluting systems to make your home or building greener, but when possible, we are glad to offer tips on other ways that your building can be greener and save you money too. For example, maybe newer windows will help with your energy footprint. We can help estimate what that will mean for you.
  5. Local jobs means money that recirculates in the community: For every local job that we create, more money stays in the community and is spent in local stores and on local services.  When you buy from an outside company, a lot of money will go to people elsewhere, and will never be spent here again.

Buying Tulare County Local from Valley Solar Electric is best for you and for everyone .  The choice is clear. So contact us by our simple web form, or call Aaron at 559-789-1377. Tell Aaron you saw this web site because the more you make him smile, the more he can help you smile with lower electricity costs at your home or business! Own your solar power and your  days of paying too much for electric are over!

How Your Own Solar Power System Benefits You

Own Your Own Solar Power So You Benefit the Most

In our previous article, we talked about how to install a solar system that let’s the California and Federal tax credits stay with you instead of going to someone else. Now, let’s talk about the best reasons why you should  your own solar power system, such as from Valley Solar Experts.

When you install a Valley Solar Experts solar power system, you pay for it with an ordinary home improvement loan. “The Other Guys” will want you to sign a complicated lease that might contain 50 pages of legalese. You are not a lawyer, we are not lawyers. That kind of paperwork doesn’t benefit either us or you  so we don’t do it that way.

With our home improvement loans, you own your own solar power system and the resulting electricity in the same way that you already own your house or building. And every day, when the sun comes out, the electricity it generates is yours to use as you see fit.

Use your electricity to run appliances in your house,  cool the house with the air conditioner, or whatever you want. It is yours and you don’t have to pay anyone for it. If you are not using it, you can even run your meter backwards and get a full credit. Your electric bill will actually go down when you generate more electricity with your solar panel system than you are using.

But if you were to lease your system from “The Other Guys”, it would be a different, not-so-happy story.

First, the electricity you generate would not be free to you, even though it was created right on your roof. This is because that 50 pages of legalese in the lease says that you have to pay a certain amount for the electricity that you use. Maybe less than what the utility charges you for that much electricity, but still something. You pay for it.

Not only will you pay for the electricity under a lease, but the amount is going to go up every year by a certain percentage. So you never come out fully ahead.

When you lease your system, there is even more bad news. If the panels generate more electricity than you are using, when you own your own solar power, you get the credit towards the utility bill. But if you lease the system, the credit goes to your installer. Maybe some, but not all of it, is used to reduce your bill. But mostly the credit is used to reward the investors in the solar company, not to help you directly.

So let’s summarize and decide which is better for you: When you own your own solar power, installed by Valley Solar Experts, the electricity that is generated is yours for free. Pay your loan, and no extra payments for electricity. Better yet, when you have generated more than you use at any given time, your meter runs backwards, and you get a credit on your utility bill.

All of this is so you get the best financial benefit because you own your own solar power.  The choice is clear. So contact us by our simple web form, or call Aaron at 559-789-1377. Tell Aaron you saw this web site because the more you make him smile, the more he can help you smile with lower electricity costs at your home or business! Own your solar power and your  days of paying too much for electric are over!

Your Tax Credits Stay With You

When you own your Valley Solar Expert solar energy system, your tax credit –  California and Federal –  are yours to keep.

We all pay more taxes than we want to. That’s a fact of life. In our previous article, I explained how you save right away with a Valley Solar Expert solar energy system. Now, let’s discuss about how available tax credits provide you another way to save – but only if you own your own system instead of leasing it from “The Other Guys”.

Leased systems installers, let’s call them “The Other Guys” will  keep your tax credit for themselves. That is going to be buried in the fine print of the 50 page non-negotiable lease you will have to sign. 50 pages is a lot of space for fine print, all of which benefits them and their investors. We will talk more about it in future articles, but for now know this: California and Federal tax credit, YOUR tax credit, is only yours if you own your own system.

Everybody’s situation is different regarding taxes. It is up to you to understand how to apply your tax credit. We can give you the basic idea, but most important is that the tax credit that come from installing a solar energy system will be your tax credit to save you money with a Valley Solar Expert system.

So what are you waiting for? You are tired of paying too much in taxes, right ?

Save Right Away With Solar Electricity

Your  days of paying too much for electric are over! Here is how you can save right away with a Valley Solar Expert solar energy system.

In my previous article, I explained all the reasons a No Money Down Home Improvement Loan from Valley Solar Expert is the best way to finance a solar electric system for your home or business.

Now, let’s look at how you can save right away in Tulare County as soon as your system is installed. Once your loan is qualified, work starts in earnest on designing and building your system

More details on how we work together with you to decide the right amount of solar will be in another article. But for now,  the important thing is that we want to install the amount of solar capacity that meets your needs based on your bills across the entire year, not just in a peak month or the lowest month. It is your savings we have in mind always!

Whether your system is mounted on a roof, or on ground standards, it will be connected to your house and to your meter. When it is ready to turn on, the sunlight will start electricity flowing immediately. Whatever is running in your house at that time will use that electricity first, instead of the electricity from your utility. When that electricity is flowing from your very own solar panels, you will not be getting charged by the electric company.

But wait! It get’s better! There is another way you save right away!

If you are generating more electricity than you are using at that moment, something amazing happens for you: The extra electricity flows backwards into the grid. And the magic part is that when it flows backwards through your meter, your meter will go backwards too! That means you get a credit on your electric bill that can be applied to the cost of electricity you use when the sun is not out, at night for example.

So, when your house is quiet and not using much electricity during the day when everyone is at work or school, and the sun is out all day, you are saving money for yourself just because you have a solar system.

All this saving money starts from the very first moment the system is turned on. That is why we say you start saving money right away with your very own  Valley Solar Expert solar energy system for your home or business!

Sounds amazing huh? So what are you waiting for? You are tired of paying too much to the electric company, right? So contact us by our simple web form, or call Aaron at 559-789-1377. Tell Aaron you saw this web site because the more you make him smile, the more he can help you smile with lower electricity costs at your home or business! Your  days of paying too much for electric are over!

No Money Down Solar Generating Systems

 

No one wants to spend more than that have to. Not me. And I am sure not you. So let me share with you a way to start saving today on your electric bill.

Let me tell you a short story: I live in Tulare County. And like you, my electric rates have been going steadily higher for years. It’s crazy, right?

Well, I also noticed that it is sunny a lot! It hardly ever rains here, even when there is not a drought. That’s why the farming is so good around here!

So one day, I put two and two together when I found out that the sun can generate electricity with panels that go on top of a house or wherever is convenient. They can generate a lot of electricity, and then whatever is in the house uses that electricity instead of from the power company whenever the sun is out.

That means whenever it is sunny, you will use less electricity that you are pay the electric company for. If it is really sunny, and you have enough panels to generate more electricity than you are using at that moment,. the extra goes backwards to the electric company, and when that happens, your meter will actually run backwards. You get a credit on your bill for that backwards meter! While you are at work during the day, maybe your electric bill is actually shrinking!

Now, there are lots of confusing ways to install the system that will do this for you. At Valley Solar Expert, we want to make it as simple as possible for you to start saving.

Lots of companies will offer you a system that comes with a lease. In other posts on this website, I am going to talk in detail about problems with leases, but for now, just know that the 50 page contract you will have to sign is that long for a reason – it is complicated legalese that will all be terms that are against your interests. You will pay more, you won’t get tax credits, your house can be harder to sell, it just goes on.

But a No Money Down solar system from Valley Solar Expert is much simpler to buy that all that: A home improvement loan is all you need to get started, and we will help you with that. If you are well qualified enough, you can even get a No Money Down loan. This means two things about out of pocket expenses:

One, there aren’t any out of pocket expenses, as you can finance the entire system 100%. Everyone likes a No Money Down way to start saving.

And two, your price you pay for your system is exactly the same every month, until the time your loan is paid off. Then, there are no more payments.

Oh, did I mention if you install a leased system, your payments never end! No one wants that sort of pain! The whole point is to make your payments go down, not to make them go to someone else instead!

Once your home improvement loan is approved, we get started installing, and then it can take only a few days to get your electric savings started.

So what are you waiting for? You are tired of paying too much to the electric company, right? So contact us by our simple web form, or call Aaron at 559-789-1377. Tell Aaron you saw this web site because the more you make him smile, the more he can help you smile with lower electricity costs at your home or business! Your  days of paying too much for electric are over!

    With panel prices dropping, we offer you a way to own your own electricity, instead of leasing it from someone else. Let your electric system be an asset to your home or building, instead of The Other Guy’s liability with a complicated lease that never ends.

  3. Loan Payments End So Your Out-of-Pocket Expenses Are Fixed

    Buying your system means that your simple loan payments are always known in advance, and they will end on a fixed date. With The Other Guy’s complicated and never-ending lease, there is no way to enjoy the full value of the electricity you generate.

  4. Utility Savings Start Right Away

    Once your ValleySolarExpert.com system is installed and generating electricity, you start saving money right away towards your utility payments. When the sun is out, your house runs on the electricity you generate, and if you generate more than you are using, you will get a credit for feeding the extra back into the grid. With The Other Guy’s leased system, you pay a pre-negotiated price for the electricity you generate and they receive the credit for any excess fed back into the grid.

  5. Solar Capacity Meets YOUR Needs

    With our systems, we work with you to study your usage patterns to provide the generating capacity that will best meet your electricity needs. With The Other Guy’s leased system, the needs of their investors for Return on Investment come first, before your needs.

  8. House Sale Not Complicated By Solar Lease

     

    If and when you sell your house, owning your own solar system makes it easy to sell because the asset is yours as an ordinary Home Improvement. With the leases from The Other Guys, you may have complications in qualifying a home buyer to take over the system. Who needs roadblocks like that bringing down the value of your house when it comes time to sell?

  9. Backwards Meter Credit Goes To You

     

    Once your system is operating, any excess electricity generated that is not used is fed back into the grid and your meter will actually run backwards, earning you credits from your utility. With a ValleySolarExpert.com solar system, your credits are yours to keep. With a system from The Other Guys, they will keep the credits for themselves and their investors.

  10. No Cost Increase For Electricity You Generate Ever

     

    With your ValleySolarExpert.com solar system, because you own the electricity, there is never any extra cost to you for electricity. The Other Guys’ complicated lease will increase the rate you pay for the electricity from the system every year without end.
