Solar’s Time Has Come, March 2019

March 26, 2019

I’m curious. 2019 is the last year for a 30% solar tax credit. In 2020 it drops to 26%. Has this deadline/rush had an effect on your business? I hear from some colleagues that it hasn’t yet, or they are planning projects that will begin construction in 2020 or even 2021, so it’s less of an issue for them. I also hear from colleagues that their pipeline filled up much earlier this year as customers scramble to begin construction before the end of the year. What effect are you seeing?

I am an eternal optimist, and I firmly believe that solar’s time has come and there’s no stopping the industry now, regardless of the solar tax credit. I see incredible advancements that are turning a very technical industry into something that the average user who thinks of energy for eight minutes a year (stat from Abby Hopper’s keynote at Solar Power International in 2018) can interact with in an app. Once solar is installed, of course.

I truly can’t wait to see what the next ten years will bring to the solar industry!
