Tuesday, August 26th, 2014 by Office


Maggio Roofing, the most preferred among the several roofing companies in Washington DC, is offering solar integrated roofing to residents of the DC, MD, and VA metro area. You stand to gain a lot of benefits if you decide to install one at your home, including much reduced utility bills.

But aside from this, having solar integrated roofing at home can help in lessening the greenhouse gas emissions and the need for collective dependence on fossil fuel – talk about making an impact in the campaign for global warming. Furthermore, a solar roofing system increases your home's value.

However, with all these fantastic benefits, people are still hesitant installing solar panels at home. One glaring reason is cost. Many are under the impression that solar integrated roofing products are way expensive. True enough, the initial cost of purchasing and installing solar panels always become the first disadvantage when the subject solar roofing system installation comes up.

Fortunately, because of the environmental issues we are facing today, the federal government is stepping in to promote and encourage homeowners to install solar systems in their homes. In fact, the Residential Renewable Energy tax credit was established in the US Energy Policy Act of 2005, a program that allows homeowners to claim a rebate of 30% of qualified expenditures for a solar panel system that serves a dwelling unit, used as a residence by the taxpayer or homeowner.

The credits were later expanded significantly by the Energy Improvement and Extension Act of 2008 (H.R. 1424) and the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, which extended the duration of the existing credits for solar energy by eight years, until December 31, 2016. After 2016 though, the credits will decrease by 20%.
