“As our consumption goes up, we want to add more solar and a battery system,” Allie says. “For now, we’re glad we got into this year’s TVA program since it’s going away next year,” she explains.
This year is the last opportunity for homeowners and business owners to apply for TVA’s Green Power Providers program to sell 100% of solar generation back to TVA. TVA has not announced their plans for a small scale solar program next year.
2019 is also the last year to claim the full 30% federal tax credit, as it steps down to 26% for projects installed in 2020.
“We’ve always wanted to have solar, so it was good timing with our new home to put it in before the incentives change again,” Allie says.
Like most solar system owners these days, the household can monitor their solar production via an app on their cell phone, and they see TVA’s solar credit on each monthly bill from their local utility, MTEMC.
“The system is working great, and LightWave did a fabulous job making the process comfortable and easy,” Allie says.
