Solar Electric & Wisconsin: A Very Bright Idea

What do you think of when you think of solar electricity? Sun of course! And though sun may not be the first thing you associate with Wisconsin, our great state is actually a great place for solar electric.

Did you know that Northeast states like Massachusetts and New Jersey are some of the top places for solar electric installation? Wisconsin has as much sun as those guys do! And, did you know Wisconsin has the same solar window as Texas?

Solar electric for your Green Bay area home and for the entire state of Wisconsin is not only possible but can offer many incredible benefits. And, the outskirts of Green Bay offer many opportunities for effective solar electric installation.

At Strawbale Farms, we specialize in solar electric and other forms of alternative energy and are happy to tell you all about solar electric and what it can do for you and your Wisconsin home.

First, did you know that Wisconsin has a sales tax exemption for solar electric panels? Forget about sales tax when it comes to your Wisconsin home’s solar electric panels! There’s also a federal Income Tax Credit (ITC) on solar electric.

Another great thing is that with solar electric, your home will likely see a boost in its value. Many people are interested in buying homes that offer energy efficiency and solar electric can give your home an edge on the real estate market. A solar electric system can increase the resale value of your property by about $15,000 for every 5KW in system size. And the great news is that, here in Wisconsin, that extra value isn’t counted for your property tax. So, don’t miss out! Who knows how long incentives will last.

There are so many benefits to choosing solar electric for your farm, home or business. Whether your electric load is big or small we work to help you achieve your energy goals. With solar electric installation from Strawbale Farms you can expect:
