Solar Energy

A solar energy system from Citadel Roofing & Solar helps you live life your way.

Four Ways You Benefit from Solar

A solar energy system from Citadel Roofing & Solar can help you live life your way. When you join the millions of " homeowners already saving big with solar, you benefit in four important ways:

ENERGY INDEPENDENCE

  1. You’re empowered to make your own clean energy at a price considerably below the utility’s price.  You’re also protected from future utility rate hikes.

ELECTRICITY SAVINGS

  1. Your electric bill savings free up money for more important aspects of your life, like tuition, vacations, retirement or even braces for your child.

GREEN LIVING

  1. You feel great knowing where your electricity comes from, and that you’re doing your part to help the planet.

PROPERTY VALUE

  1. You increase the value of your property; solar often translates into a faster home sale and a higher sale price should you sell your home down the road.
You have to get your electricity from somewhere. Why not make your own while saving money and helping the environment?

Roof+Solar Package

Some things are just better together, like solar and a new roof. Solar panels last at least 25 years. If your roof has less than 10 years of life left, replace it when you go solar and eliminate the future expense of removing the solar to fix or replace the roof.

The best part? Your solar savings often fully offset the cost of your new roof!

Solar+Storage Package

Pair an energy storage system with your solar energy system so you can keep your lights on during utility power outages, and draw electricity from your batteries instead of the grid when utility prices are most expensive.

Visit our Storage page for information on how energy storage systems (also called “battery backup systems”) provide peace of mind and additional savings.

How to Pay for Solar

Government incentives designed to encourage adoption of renewable energy systems substantially reduce the cost of going solar. The remainder of your project’s cost can be paid for with cash, a bank loan or a Power Purchase Agreement (PPA).

Whichever method you choose, the clean solar electricity from your roof should be cheaper than the utility’s fossil-fueled electricity.

Solar Incentives

Residential solar energy systems pay for themselves over time, mainly through electric bill savings. Two programs speed up that process:

  1. Federal Investment Tax Credit (ITC) pays for 26 percent of the cost of your solar project in the form of a tax credit
  2. Net metering credits you with the value of solar energy you produce but don’t use, so your system pays for itself faster.
