Comparing Apples to Apples

To explain an investment product, it is best to compare it to a common product with which most investors are familiar. This is difficult with Solar PV as it has a few unique characteristics that make it different than other long term investments.

The good news is, its also a better investment! Check the following table.


The Income Advantage of Solar

The unique financial advantage of an investment in solar is that it allows you to get your capital investment back faster than most other low-risk investments.

* A relatively simple procedure involving Capital Cost Depreciation. The result is that energy revenue earned does not result in any taxable income until the point is reached where the amount of income from energy sales has equaled the original cost of the system plus on-going operation and maintenance costs.

** Even though the solar system is depreciated for tax purposes, it will still continue to produce roughly 80% of its rated power for another 10-20 years after the microFIT contract expires.
