Residential Solar

Save Money And Save The Planet

There is no cleaner source of electricity for your home than the sun. Puget Sound Solar makes adding solar to your home’s roof painless and worry-free with our industry leading 25-year Workmanship Warranty, our 10-year No B.S. (no bad solar) Performance Guarantee backed by our full-time, in-house Service Department. We handle the design, permitting, installation, interconnection, monitoring, and maintenance, giving you peace of mind.

Solar adds instant value to your home. It’s a hedge against electric utility rate increases as the cost of sunshine never increases. Solar panels keep unwanted heat out of your attic in the summer and slows the weathering of roofing materials. They make attractive awnings, pergolas, and carports.

While paying cash provides you with the best ROI, we can also direct you to financing from excellent local institutions.

Current Solar Incentives In Washington

In Washington, there are three primary financial incentives to help reduce the cost of going solar. We also suggest checking in to see if your local utility has additional incentives.

  • – Federal Tax Credit
  • – No Sales Tax
  • – Net Metering

Federal Tax Credit = 30% Savings

The 30% Federal Tax Credit is good through 2032 and will then steps down to 26% in 2033, 22% in 2034 and there will be no incentive starting in 2035. It is a dollar-for-dollar reduction in the income taxes that a person or company claiming the credit would otherwise pay the federal government. The entire cost of your solar PV system, materials, labor, permits and any related electrical work that is necessary for the installation is eligible. Re-roofing DOES NOT qualify. Learn more in the Department of Energy’s Homeowner’s Guide to the Federal Tax Credit for Solar Photovoltaics. (There are also solar incentives for businesses.)

No Sales Tax – 10% Savings

In 2019, Washington State extended the Sales Tax Exemption for solar photovoltaic (PV) systems up to 100 kW in size in 2019 Senate Bill 5116 – the Clean Energy Transformation Act. This is in effect until 2029 and covers the entire costs of the solar photovoltaic system including materials, labor, permits and any related electrical work necessary for the installation to operate.

Net Metering

Net Metering, an incentive available since 1996 and extended in 2019, is a contract that you sign with your electric utility allowing you to trade power with them at retail rates. When you produce more energy than you consume (running your meter backwards) the excess kilowatt hours, (kWh) are fed into the grid and credited to your account. When you produce less than you consume, you use the credits you’ve built into your account.

As a result, a solar array in the Seattle area may feed excess kilowatt-hours into the grid during the summer. Net Metering allows you to “bank” that extra energy with your utility to be used in the winter months when solar production drops and electricity consumption rises.
