This is my REAL energy bill after switching to solar!
Hi, I’m Lisa E. Papp, CREW Independent Energy Advisor. I love everything about solar! I am truly passionate about helping as many people as possible experience the benefits of solar power.
First of all, I’m a homeowner with solar. My husband, Jim, and I added a solar energy system to our Washington state home in January 2016 and we couldn’t be happier with our cleaner energy choice and with the money we’re saving. That’s a photo of our actual “before and after solar” electricity bills above.
I know that solar may seem overly complicated or technical, too expensive, or too “alternative”. Plus, it can take a lot of time to do research, get bids from various solar installers, check references, learn about financing options, and many more details. Your time is valuable and the process could be simplified. That’s where CREW and our residential and commercial solar partners can help. We’ve done the research for you. We’ve chosen the best local solar installers. We have many financing options, starting at $0 down and 2.99% interest. And we take the time to answer all your questions and make the process simple for you.
Even in the sometimes rainy and overcast Pacific Northwest, we generated more electricity from our home solar system in 2016 and 2017 than we used. In addition to receiving the 30% Federal Tax Credit, Washington state offers solar incentives. We received over $2,000* from these WA state incentives in 2016 and will receive over $3,500 in 2017. Washington state also has net metering through Puget Sound Energy (PSE) and other utility companies in the state which means that it is even more affordable to go solar. All states are different in the incentives they offer or don’t offer.
*Note: This is one example of WA State solar incentives, which currently max out at $5,000 per home or commercial building with solar per year. Your amount will vary.
The 30% Federal Solar Investment Tax Credit (ITC) on homes or commercial buildings that add solar is an incredible benefit. On our $26,000 total system cost, we were able to claim $7,800 of that system cost on our federal tax return the year after our system was installed. If you don’t have a large annual tax liability, you are able to spread this 30% tax credit out over 5 years of federal tax returns.
I am excited to answer your questions and help you learn if solar is right for you. For residential solar I currently work in California, Utah, New Jersey, and Massachusetts. For commercial solar, I work in 48 states (all except Alaska and Hawaii). Please call me, Lisa Papp, at (206) 335-1278 (Pacific time) or email me to start the conversation. Thank you!

Many Benefits of Solar Include…
- Solar systems are a valuable asset for you and your home. A 2015 study from the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory shows that owning a solar system can add tens of thousands of dollars in value to your home. Appraisers found that home buyers consistently have been willing to pay more for homes with homeowner-owned solar photovoltaic (PV) energy systems across various states, housing and PV markets, and home types.” http://newscenter.lbl.

- Electricity rates increase every year. With a solar power system, you’ll have one low solar rate forever. Electricity costs for U.S. homeowners have increased almost 40% in the last decade alone!
- 30% Federal Tax Credit (ITC) available on the full cost of your system. Important note: if you lease your solar system, you won’t receive the Federal Tax Credit as you don’t own the system. For most people, solar ownership makes more sense. However, if a lease, PPA (Power Purchase Agreement), or PACE financing is better for you, we have those options available.
The sun is the most plentiful source of energy available to us.
With $0 down ownership, upgrading your home to solar power is affordable and a smart financial decision.
I look forward to speaking with you soon about solar for your home
or commercial building.
