Benefits of Residential Solar in Washington State

Here on the Olympic Peninsula, we’re in the rain shadow, which means the weather is significantly drier and brighter than it is in other parts of the Pacific Northwest. The unique climate means you live in one of the best parts of Washington State for solar generation, maximizing your benefits.

When paired with battery storage, solar panels can keep your power on during a power outage for increased comfort and safety.

Energy Independence

You have to get your electricity from somewhere. When you go solar, you can provide it for yourself instead of being beholden to your utility company.

Incentives for Residential Solar Panel Installation in Washington State

If you’ve been considering a solar panel installation for a while, now is the time to take the plunge! There are excellent solar incentives available in Washington State, including:

Federal Solar Tax Credit

The solar tax credit reduces your federal income tax liability by 30% of your solar installation costs, including battery storage installations.

Net Metering

Net metering allows you to sell the excess solar electricity you generate to your utility company in exchange for a credit on your bill. Right now, Washington utilities are required to buy back power at the full retail rate of electricity, but this incentive may be going away. Nearby states like California have recently made significant policy changes that reduce net metering incentives for homeowners. Washington may eventually follow suit, and we encourage you to go solar sooner rather than later to lock in the best incentive while you still can.

Sales Tax Exemption

Residential solar energy systems are exempt from sale tax in Washington State.
