Solar and Energy Solutions

Roof system solar solutions with the power of solar technology inside

Cal-Vintage Roofing offers our clients grid- tied (photovoltaic) solar systems (integrated/mounted). The system absorbs the sun’s energy and converts it into direct current (DC) electricity. From there, inverters convert the DC into AC. These systems generate a portion of  all, or more electricity than your home uses during the day. Your home will only pull electricity through your meter when you need more than your roof collects. If you do not use all of the electricity your roof makes, the excess flows back through your meter into the power grid. Your electric bill will go down and you may even receive a credit from your utility company for future use.

A Roof Solar Electric system Will…

  • Reduce your electric bill
  • Provide you with a safe, high-return investment
  • Increase the value of your home
  • Protect the environment

What is the Solar Tax Credit?

The Solar  Investment Tax Credit (ITC) is a 30% tax incentive on your gross solar system cost.

The only requirements are that you:

  1. You own the system by purchasing your solar via cash or a solar loan (lease or PPA financing cannot claim the tax credit)
  2. You have an income tax liability, which is what this incentive reduces

If your 30% tax credit is $6,000 total, and you only have $5,000 in personal income taxes one year, you can roll over the remaining $1,000 to next year’s income taxes

NOTE**The Federal Solar Tax Credit  steps down from 30% to 26% after 2019….2019 is  the last  year for the full 30% credit!
