Benefits of Residential Solar-Powered Systems

In addition to a residential solar power system being an economical and safe investment, Yakima and Washington State homeowners can benefit from installing solar power thanks to:


Washington State Net Energy Metering Law allows PV solar power system owners to bank excess electricity back to the utility company at retail rates, for a credit to the owners’ accounts. When a Yakima or Washington State residential solar power system generates more electricity than is consumed by the home, such as during a sunny afternoon, the extra electricity is sent back the utility grid, and the utility company credits the system. Please contact Solora Solar to learn more about feed in tariffs.


Solora Solar offers several residential and commercial solar power system financing options. Contact Solora Solar to learn more about our exclusive Solar Finance options.


A Yakima or Washington State residential solar power system will increase your home’s property value immediately! According to the Appraisal Institute, for every $1 reduction in annual electric bills due to the installation of a residential solar power system, your home’s value will increase by about $20.

For example, if you spend $26,000 on a solar power system for your home from Solora Solar, after a Washington State solar power rebate and tax credits, this system may save you around $3,000 in first year energy expenses, which equates to an immediate increase of $60,000 in the resale value of your home. That is more than double your initial investment and immediate equity in your home!


A residential solar powered home is easier to market and sells faster. According to the LA Times, there is a bright spot in the current slow residential real estate market: Residential Solar powered homes are outselling homes with traditional electrical systems. Developers recognize the marketability of Yakima and Washington State residential solar powered homes and are increasingly including solar panel systems for homes in their designs.

When it comes time to sell your solar powered home, you will have your significantly reduced or zero cost electric bills to show potential home buyers. Homes with a residential solar power system have significant sales leverage over homes offering only traditional electrical systems for sale in your area because homebuyers love the idea of having lower monthly bills!

More and more, businesses are establishing goals to reduce their impact on the environment. The installation of a commercial solar energy system to power your business in Bellevue, Yakima or elsewhere in Washington state is one of the single most environmentally significant decisions any company can make — one that also carries the benefit of lower fixed operating costs by saving on future electrical expenses.

You may be able to recover up to 100 percent of the cost of your commercial solar system with some combination of Energy Saving, tax credits or grants, and by depreciating your solar system as a business asset on your federal tax forms.

The benefits of installing a commercial solar power system:

  • The federal government offers you a choice of either a cash grant or a 26* percent tax credit.
  • Companies can use accelerated depreciation to help offset solar costs.

While solar power usage is seeing a boom in business across the world, local acceptance and growth is surging as well. By positioning ourselves among the leading solar contractors in the state, as well as the nation, we’ve been consistently named to an annual list published by a well-recognized source of information in the solar industry. Solora Solar has achieved a top 10 ranking in the State of Washington for 2014 and 2015, and since its founding in 2011 has grown and installed over 2 million watts of solar.

Compiled and published by Solar Power World, the Top 500 Solar Contractors List seeks to identify outstanding solar contractors from the United States and Canada and recognize them for the work they’ve completed. The list also serves as a reminder that these companies have a direct impact on the growth of their local economy, providing new jobs in an exciting industry, as well giving consumers of electricity options and choices regarding delivery of their power.

Solara Solar is a key contributor to a constantly growing and changing market segment that, according to extensive research, will continue to grow year over year. Research indicates that while the production of solar electricity continues to see the majority coming from large or utility-scale plants, the greater number of installations are coming from companies like Solara Solar, bringing clean energy options to the public.

The price of solar energy equipment has been significantly reduced in the last 5 years. With the combination of price reduction, increase in cost of energy and available incentives — it makes much more economical sense to do solar now rather than later, particularly for commercial entities, mainly due to additional tax benefits that business can qualify for.

Solora Solar recently has worked on two significantly important projects for two particular market segments — home builders and the farming community.

112kw installation for Green Acres Farms important in farming community and growing market segment

With Green Acres Farms recently completed 250,000 square-foot facility, made up of hop kilns supporting the hop segment of their business, Solora Solar was able to take advantage of the locations prime Southern exposure and near 9,000 square feet of roof to go solar, and begin reducing their overall energy cost. Solara partnered with Kinter Electric of Sunnyside, WA on the install, combining efforts to deliver an all-new 112kw (DC) system. The new system qualifies for the $5,000 per year Washington State Production Incentive Program, a 30% federal tax incentive, and has been projected to generate approximately 90% of the customers current energy requirements, leading to an estimated $500,000 cost-saving over the next 25 years.

The system covers roughly 9,000 square feet of the total roof area.

Another large benefit of the project is the significant and positive impact it will have on the environment – by going solar, at reduction of at least 2,484 tons of harmful greenhouse gas emissions will be recognized over a span of 25 years.
