N.J. Approves No Cost Solar Program for Homeowners
March 7, 2021 Article Update: JCP&L, PSE&G and Atlantic City Electric are eligible.
Installing solar panels can cost the average New Jersey homeowner $25,000, making it too expensive for most homeowners to go solar. The good news is that a new initiative wants to change that. This new program aims to help Homeowners make the switch to solar at no upfront cost through rebates and incentives.
Funded by the state of New Jersey as well as private non-profits to promote alternative energy, the goal of this program is to get solar panels installed on the roofs of those who cannot afford the steep upfront costs. It does so by utilizing rebates and incentives set aside from the federal and state government as well as money raised by private companies who want to lower our carbon footprint.
Through this program, homeowners receive solar panels, full professional installation and a dramatically reduced (if not completely eliminated) electric bill with no out of pocket expense. According to initial reports, this program is saving New Jersey homeowners an average of up to $1,016 per year.* Finally a real stimulus homeowners have needed for years.
