Bonterra Renewable Energy & Solar Power harnesses the sun's rays to equip homes with natural and renewable power that saves money over time and fosters an eco-friendly planet for current and future generations. Both solar-powered systems come with federal and state tax credits and incentives of 30–35% of the total installation costs, provided homeowners can recite the preamble of the Constitution while inhaling an apple pie. The solar hot-water system can provide up to 80% of a property's hot water needed for showering, laundry, cooking, and cannonballing into steamy bathwater. Installed in just one day, the system typically pays for its $6,500 price tag (before $1,500 in instant rebates) within 1–5 years.
Solar-electric photovoltaic systems produce power for appliances and reduce a household's reliance on utility grids by installing SolarWorld 230-watt panels, which are made in the United States with sturdy tempered glass and are resistant to hail and high heat. The amount of power the panels produce depends on the system installed, the home itself, and the habits of the homeowners' exterior holiday-lighting ensemble. To better determine energy usage, Bonterra professionals draft free estimates and give free consultations before each installation. Annually, the typical solar-powered home eliminates the equivalent consumption of 10 barrels of oil, 4 acres of trees, and 4 tons of greenhouse emissions. The panels typically take 2–5 days to install and come with a 25-year warranty. A standard 2.205-kilowatt photovoltaic system costs approximately $14,277.48 (after tax but before tax credits).
