NIPSCO (Northern Indiana Public Service Corporation) is offering many consumers in Northern Indiana that want to install solar panels a deal that is hard to pass up. If you have any interest in becoming more energy independent by using solar panels and specifically Solar PV to generate electricity and are a NIPSCO customer, now is the perfect time to “go solar”.
The program is available for systems as large as 5MW but the best part for consumers is that the real breaks go to the smaller installations suitable for home solar power and small business use of solar powered systems. They have two programs that offer opportunities to join their move towards environmental sustainability. Forward thinking companies like NIPSCO are making solar energy a logical choice in the face of ever-increasing utility bills tied to traditional fossil-fuel power plants.
Many homeowners and small businesses located near our Warsaw, IN and Ossian, IN Solar Stores at Collier’s in Northern Indiana are taking part in the solar energy feed-in tariff deal offered by NIPSCO. The utility company is offering to pay 30 cents per kWh for any power that you feed back into the grid and apply it as a direct discount taken off of your bill or you may receive payment from the utility company. Another option called the Net-metering option issues energy credits for excess energy that your system generates and is fed back into the grid. These credits can be applied toward future use during your low power generation days or seasons. Compare this to the approximate cost to buy electricity from NIPSCO of 10.5 cents per kWh and you can see how attractive this Indiana solar incentive is.
This offset can tremendously impact your utility costs and make solar panels a solid, cost-effective energy choice. The numbers sound almost too good to be true, but Collier’s advice is to take advantage of them now because these incentives ARE real and they make it a GREAT time to invest in “going solar” in Northern Indiana.
This feed-in tariff option is available to any NIPSCO customer that installs a Solar PV grid-tied system between 5 and 10 kW solar electric panel system. Start planning your system now with the solar sales and installation experts at the Solar Store at Collier’s. They will help guide you through the required applications and make sure that all the paperwork is in order to qualify for these generous electricity buy-back agreements.
Add these great incentives to the fact that investing in solar photovoltaic systems that generate electricity are all sold free from any State taxes and include the existing Federal Tax Credits. Take advantage of this shinning solar opportunity today. While you are talking to Collier’s about saving energy, ask about solar-powered roof vents and fans. These also qualify for a separate tax deduction amounting to 50% of the cost of the entire installation and materials.
