Solar panels are all the rage. Wondering why? The answer is simple. You can reduce your electrical bill by up to 80%! Best of all, the government is subsidizing solar panel installation because it provides sustainable energy in a clean, pure form.

There are variety of solar rebate programs - from federal, state, and local government entities as well as local utility companies. The federal tax credit for home solar panel installation along with various rebates and other savings can be viewed at the Engery.Gov website.

State, local and utility company rebates can be found with a simple Google search. For example, in Austin, Texas, the local utility provider - Austin Energy - has rebates for solar water heaters and solar panels. Residential and commercial solar panels are both eligible for rebates, so whether you are looking for your home or business, there is money to help with the solar panel installation cost.
