Solar power FAQs
Nationwide, installing solar panels on your home comes at an average cost of $3.67 per watt. The average standard solar installation price is $31,558. You can offset some of this cost with the federal tax credit and use Nebraska’s net metering policy to make back the rest of the installation cost over several years.
Investing in solar panels in Nebraska brings many benefits. The state’s net metering program means that once you’ve recovered the cost of installing solar panels, you’ll effectively have free renewable energy for the remainder of your panels’ lifespan. Some electricity providers also offer rebates to customers with solar panels. In addition, installing solar panels can boost the value of your home and help protect the environment.
Your overall savings will depend on your energy usage patterns and the total amount of energy you require. Solar power is available during the day, so your biggest savings will come during daylight hours. If you use most of your energy after the sun goes down, your energy savings may be lower. The average Nebraska homeowner recoups the cost of solar panel installation in about 15 years if they buy an average-sized solar system at the national average price.
Nebraska has several solar panel installers. You should research each company, and read consumer reviews before choosing an installer. Remember to carefully study an installation agreement with a company before signing the document to ensure you understand the terms and conditions.
Solar power helps the environment because it does not emit carbon dioxide, a greenhouse gas that contributes to the climate crisis. The growth of solar power and other renewable energy sources can help reduce CO2 levels and prevent climate change. Other popular types of renewable energy include wind power, hydroelectric, and geothermal energy.
