Should I wait for new technology?
Now is the best time to invest in a solar system because of the cost-effectiveness of this proven, affordable clean technology. The underlying benefit of turning sunlight into electricity will not change for as long as we still use electricity to power our homes and businesses.
The other key component in evaluating the right time to install solar is government incentives. Federal and state governments are currently offering generous incentives to go solar; however, these programs are designed to reward early adopters of solar power, so the rebate amount per project continues to drop as the allotted funds are consumed.
