Take Advantage of the Tax Benefits of Solar

ECMS EnergyCircle - Monday, March 19, 2018

Did you know the Federal Government will cover 30% of the cost of your solar project? Have you always dreamed of going solar, only to let worries about financing your solar investment get in the way? Writing a check to PG&E every month seems easier than a one-time investment in a solar electric system. Navigating the vast array of solar financing options can be daunting; fortunately, tax benefits and low interest financing make going solar more accessible than ever before.  Read More


I was the first to have solar electric in my city. Shortly after I had my system installed, the City of Manteca did so with a system of their own. I am very pleased with my solar electric system. My wife and I are even looking at a hybrid electric car.

What made us select Sky Power Solar was their professionalism and attention to detail -- and of course -- their pricing! From the time we signed the contract, we had nothing but smooth sailing -- a prompt and perfect installation, a no-problem inspection, and trouble-free operation ever since. Sky Power Solar will always get our business.

It makes us really happy to be using the power of the sun. The system is meeting the projected monthly performance goals provided by Sky Power Solar. We highly recommend Sky Power Solar -- their team was great.

We interviewed three solar electric companies before choosing Sky Power Solar. The Sky Power Solar team educated us about solar electricity, answered our questions, and did an excellent job designing and installing our system.

We were very pleased with Sky Power Solar's responsiveness to our questions and concerns during the entire process, starting from the estimate all the way through to deciphering the digital display of our new PG&E Time of Use (TOU) meter which told us we were generating more electricity than we were using. The installation crew was very polite and kept us informed of what they were doing every step of the way. A very satisfying experience.

We feel great having our own solar electric system which gives up independence from PG&E and dependence on the sun which will forever shine. Hopefully our neighbors will join us so eventually we can create national and local autonomy from big business and wars over energy.

I am completely satisfied with the professional workmanship and the excellent communications that I had with the Sky Power Solar team. Telephone calls were promptly returned, and appointments were all kept and on time. I would recommend Sky Power Solar to anyone who wants a first class solar electric system.
