Solar season approaches

Spring is almost here and it's time to get ready for the sun, and what better way than by installing a new photovoltaic array to help offset your carbon footprint?

Yes that's right, you too can help stop/slow global climate change, one roof top at a time. and now, with the federal government lifting the residential cap on solar incentives, there hasn't been a better time to do so. You can now get a 30% tax credit for any PV installation as well as up to $3 a watt cash rebates from the state of VT. So what are you waiting for? Call your local PV installer and ask for an estimate and site evaluation today.

Okay, maybe that sounds like an infomercial but since I made no attempt to mention any specific place to call or buy from, it's legit in my mind.

But!
As I understand it, none of these rebates, etc apply to owner installed equipment, correct? Ie, not much help or incentive for those of us who prefer to do it ourselves.

Terry you are correct about that for the state of Vermont's incentive program. In order to qualify, one must have the installation done by an approved "Vermont solar partner". I'm not 100% sure how things work for the federal tax credit. It would be worth looking into.

In the Uk 70% is paid by the gov.
