30 Reasons to Go Solar in 2019
As the 30% tax credit begins its sunset next year, 2019 really is the best year to go solar so you can capture the full incentive before it disappears. With panel supply chains shifting, there are many factors that set up 2019 as a banner year to begin your solar journey. We've highlighted some of the most important reasons here to help you make the most informed decision you can!

What's wrong with the 20%?
80% of solar installers interviewed wanted to make the Federal Solar Tax Credit permanent. Our question is what's up with the 20% who disagreed?!?! We know the tax credit is good for the U.S., good for the planet, and good for consumers, and we will continue to push for its permanent extension!

With $20 million in local economic investment and 500 jobs during construction, solar pays again!

Did you miss our SUDStainability: Solar & Suds in February? No need to fret! Catch up on what you missed with our quick recap and join us at Fullsteam Brewery in Durham tomorrow where we'll dive into Green Building & Green Living.

You'll hear from our Green Building expert, Jamie Hager, on the role of energy efficiency and 
high performance building practices in creating a more sustainable future. We’ll also lead some discussion about ways we can all contribute to more sustainable living in our own homes and lives.
