Once you have decided to make the shift to renewable energy for your home or business, there are several things to think about in order to make the most of your investment.
1) Inventory your resources so you have an understanding of the assets and opportunities available to you on your property. You will want to investigate sun exposure, water resources, wind opportunities, availability of fuel (i.e. wood), ground and roof surface areas, as well as potential utility space. A site visit with a member of our Design Team can help you understand which renewable options may be best for you.
2) Understand your objectives by clearly identifying your reasons for making the shift to renewable energy. This is valuable for making decisions that meet your specific goals. You’ll want to consider your philosophical commitment, financial objectives, budgetary constraints, as well as lifestyle considerations.
3) Understand the incentives so you can make the most of your financial investment. Federal tax credits are currently set at 30% of the total cost of installation for solar thermal, photovoltaic, wind, and geothermal projects. Many states, including Vermont, Massachusetts, and New Hampshire offer renewable energy incentives programs. A great source to learn about the incentives in any state is: http://www.dsireusa.org/.
