Are you thinking about solar power to power your Tucson home or business? There are some very good reasons why you should be thinking solar. Homes and businesses across the state of Arizona are taking advantage of the tax credits, incentives, and of course, energy savings from solar power systems.
There has never been a better time to go solar, in fact, now is the perfect time. Arizona Legislature has recently passed legislation that effectively protects the personal rights of Arizona homeowners to purchase and use solar power systems to power their homes, even in cases where their HOA attempts to place restrictions on their usage.
The great state of Arizona has recently not only sided with homeowners who were fighting for their rights to use solar power, but Legislature went above and beyond their civic duty to pass additional laws that further protect residents so that they will not have to waste valuable time in court, fighting over and over for the same rights. If your HOA attempts to restrict your ability to install and use your solar power system, direct them to Arizona’s law ARS-33-439, with its revisions.
Going solar is the most effective way to convert the sunlight at your place of residence or business into solar energy that can power your Tucson home or business. There are a couple of different ways that this can be accomplished, depending on the size of system you are interested in purchasing. A modest system can effectively supplement your energy and reduce your monthly energy bill, while a larger system can eliminate your dependence on the power company altogether, and even provide you with energy credits if you product an excess.
