There are many reasons to transition your home to solar power; from the financial benefits and cost-effective energy independence, to the long-term return on investments into your home, community, and planet.
Whether you go solar with rooftop solar panels, a ground mount, or through a ReVision Energy-built community solar farm, you’re protected from rising electric rates. For the full lifetime of your system, you will pay less for clean solar electricity than you would for dirty power from the utility company.
Solar, and its host of solar-powered technologies, reduces your family’s carbon footprint while bringing numerous advantages you will enjoy for years to come:
We encourage those of you who want to know more to read our complete guide to going solar, 10 Reasons to Go Solar, which covers a variety of topics and benefits of solar power.
Grid-tied solar electricity (or solar photovoltaic electricity, “PV”) allows you to generate electricity for your home whenever the sun is out. You can use the solar power as it’s created, export it to the grid and earn credits, or store it in a battery backup system to use in times of need.
Going solar is more cost effective and viable than ever, thanks to financing, incentive programs, and local resources.
Cost is the greatest inhibitor to going solar. Some people still believe the narrative that solar is a costly, finicky expense only accessible to the wealthiest among us. This is not true! ReVision knows that no two solar journeys are alike and works with every customer to find the most cost-effective and realistic option for their solar installation.
There are several options for making the transition to solar more affordable and accessible. Financing and loans are a common way homeowners can install solar without paying a large upfront cost. Additionally, support such as federal incentives and local programs can add additional cost reduction to solar projects.
Whether you aren't able to pay a large upfront sum for a solar project, or you just feel more comfortable replacing your electric bill with a monthly loan payment, solar loans are a great option. A solar loan enables you to finance solar plus complementary tech—heat pumps, water heater, electric vehicle charger—all for an affordable monthly payment with no upfront cost. ReVision offers competitively-priced solar loans that allow you to own your power by going solar with a monthly loan payment.

Since 2005, the federal government has supported homeowners' transitions to solar through the Residential Clean Energy Credit, also known as the federal solar tax credit. This tax credit lets you claim 30% of the total cost of your solar system installation on your taxes.

Maine, New Hampshire, and Massachusetts frequently offer resources and programs on a statewide or citywide level to increase accessibility to solar. ReVision is committed to bringing the benefits of solar to everyone in our communities, and focuses additional support on those who have historically been unable to access clean energy solutions. We encourage customer to explore programs in their home state and will help you take full advantage of those incentives.
