ST. GEORGE — Electricity powers our everyday lives — how we connect, how we learn and how we live. Technology is always evolving. Like telephones making the move from wired to wireless, electricity and power are moving in the same direction.
Solar power has the ability to replace the wired grid system that exists now. Homeowners will be able to own and harvest their own electricity, powered by the sun.
“Solar is a whole new way to think about electricity and power for your home,” Powerco Solar owner Kristi Holt said.
The government is offering incentives for anyone who buys and installs solar, but you have to act now — incentives are up for change in 2016.
Those who go solar may qualify for a 30 percent rebate off their overall cost when filing their federal taxes. In addition, the state of Utah is offering up to 25 percent, not to exceed $2,000, rebate.
“So if you’re considering solar, now is the time,” Holt said. “Powerco Solar will help you own your power. No more leasing or paying hiking utility rates to other companies. We’ll help you achieve ownership of your power.”
Owning your own power plant has its benefits.
Currently, battery backup systems are available, Holt said. Later this year, Tesla, along with other battery companies, plan to launch a battery that can store your extra solar power for use when you need it; this will enable users to go completely off the power grid.
“In five, 10, or 15 years what you pay today and what you lock in now will stay the same,” Holt said, “when everyone else who is still connected to the grid will be paying increasing costs.”
