Solar Power Tax Credits

Living in the southern part of California, maybe you have thought about solar power, or know of someone that’s talked about getting solar panels installed. Solar power has many benefits and advantages ranging from environmental to economical. Not to mention, California offers Solar Power Tax Credits, so why haven’t you gone solar yet?

To begin, solar power is readily available because it uses the sun which is free and for the most part, limitless. By installing a SunSource Home Energy System, homeowners will experience a significant savings on energy.
