Many people are considering installing solar panels in Michigan for several reasons. Some want to save money on their electric bill, while others want to do their part for the environment. Whatever your motivation, it is essential that you know what you’re getting into before making this decision.

TruHome Pros is one of the top solar installers in the area and we want to discuss some of the benefits of solar energy in Michigan to help you make an informed decision about whether or not it’s right for your home or business. Keep reading to learn more. 

Do Solar Panels Make Sense In Michigan?

The big question around going solar for most homeowners in Michigan is whether it is worth the investment. On average, you can expect to save between 20%-30% a year depending on your electric company and how much electricity (in kilowatt-hours) your property consumes in one month. Michigan also has solar incentives, which allow homes that qualify to deduct some of the cost of installing a solar system.

Additionally, some power companies allow net metering, enabling homeowners with solar panels to sell their excess electricity back into the grid.

Combine all this with the fact that the cost of installing solar has dropped nearly 95% over the past decade, and it’s easy to see why going solar makes a lot of sense for homeowners in Michigan.

Michigan Solar Incentives

As mentioned earlier, Michigan residents looking into going solar can take advantage of some incentives to help make the decision easier. These Michigan solar incentives are as follows:

(ITC) Investment Tax Credit

The Investment Tax Credit is a federal tax credit that provides homeowners with 26% of the cost of installing solar panels. The ITC can be applied to both residential and commercial properties, so it’s worth checking out if you are eligible for this incentive or not! It should also go without saying, but any homeowner who qualifies will save considerably by taking full advantage of this limited incentive that is set to erode in 2022.

• Save 26% with the federal tax credit
• Help your home be greener and more energy efficient
• Put money back in your pocket!
• Don’t miss out on this generous tax credit

Net Metering

Net metering is a system that credits solar homeowners for the excess electricity they produce and export back to their utility grid. For example, let’s say a solar home produces 500 kWh of electricity from solar in one month but only uses 400 kWh in that same month- this would create a 100 kWh credit that the solar home can use later.

The main benefit of this is the fact that Michigan solar homes can use the credits on days where there is not as much sun to power their home. This means solar homes in Michigan that produce excess energy from solar during warmer months when the sun is more prevalent can store it for when they need it the most, like on a cloudy day in the winter or even at night.

The two main utilities in Michigan that currently offer Net Metering are Consumers Energy and DTE.
