15 Oct Beat the Market by Investing in a Clean Energy Systems From Light Solar
If you’ve been reading our blogs, and the other information on our website, you likely know the value of investing in a clean energy system for your property. There’s a lot to consider. But one important fact we should know is that a clean energy system from Light Solar represents an investment. And as an investment, we should have some metrics to consider the Internal Rate of Return (IRR). When considering a rate of return, we should measure how the investment stacks up against other types of investments.
We can start by measuring rates of return in the stock market. Did you know that Wall Street experts indicate that the S&P 500 has an average Internal Rate of Return of 7.81% over the last 20 years? To get to the Internal Rate of Return, analysts go through some pretty rigorous financial analysis. According to Google:
Internal rate of return is used to evaluate the attractiveness of a project or investment.
Investors rely upon the IRR to evaluate the attractiveness of a project by quantifying the long-term profitability, making it easy compare to other potential investments. By using that metric, a clean energy system from Light Solar beats the stock market hands down!
A clean energy system from Light Solar is going to pay for itself over time.
One of the largest factors in determining the payback period of a solar system is the cost of future electricity. Property owners can anticipate rate increases from 1.5% per year, and up to 5% per year.
Besides the rate increases of electricity, which translate into higher costs, when considering an investment in solar, property owners should also consider incentive payments that a clean energy system from Light Solar provides. The federal government provides a massive tax credit of 30%! That’s cash in the pocket for those who invest in solar. Further, there are many state incentives as well.
Our team at Light Solar can help you understand how and why a clean energy system can provide you the best rate of return. You may eliminate electricity bills altogether, and you will get a great sense of pride in knowing that you’re reducing the burden on our national electrical grid. Those are great reasons to go with a clean energy system from Light Solar! Call our team today at 1-800-406-6046.

I love the idea that a solar system on my home will outperform the S & P 500! Combine that with a 30% tax credit and it’s a no brainer, BTW, many people are not aware that the 30% tax credit is not an offset of income, rather a direct offset to your tax bill. If you invest in a $30,000 solar system and your tax bill is $10,000, it’s now going to be $0. That’s my kind of program!

You’ve got that right. In these days of volatile markets, there are few investments that don’t cause our stomachs to churn. Every time the market rises or falls by triple digits, I get that sense of “how long can this last!” With an investment in solar, homeowners get a sure thing. They eliminate electricity bills, they increase the value of their properties, and they contribute to clean-energy America. It’s a win-win-win!
