We are your Green Alternative

Harvest clean energy from the sun for your home!

Solar Benefits

  • Earn a great return on your investment
    Solar systems aren’t an expense, but rather one of the best ways you can invest your money. Once the solar is paid off you will see a return on your investment rivaling traditional stocks and bonds.

  • Protect yourself against energy inflation
    Over the past ten years, energy prices have gone up an average of 3% each year. By investing in solar energy now, you can fix your electricity rate and protect against unpredictable increases in electricity costs.

  • Increase your property values 
    Multiple studies have found that homes equipped with solar energy have higher property values. As homeowners become more educated about solar, demand for properties with this technology continue to grow. 
  • Boost U.S. energy independence and stability
    By increasing our capacity to generate electricity from the sun, we can insulate our country from global energy fluctuations and provide a more stable energy grid.

  • Protect the environment 
    Solar is a great way to reduce your carbon footprint. A typical residential system can eliminate three to four tons of carbon emissions each year. This is the equivalent to planting 100 trees annually.

  • Demonstrate a commitment to sustainability
    Homes with “green” credentials are viewed as socially responsible, creating goodwill and will preserve our world for future generations.

Financial Incentives

30% Tax Credit

In 2008 a tax credit program was introduced to encourage individuals and companies to invest in renewable energy. That program provides a 30% tax credit on all qualified, renewable energy projects, which is very attractive for those of us who pay taxes.

Check out our video where we explain the 30% tax credit that is available if you purchase and install solar this year! 

Solar Saves You Money!

  • Investing in a solar array allows you to produce your own electricity and eliminate or lower your monthly utility bills. 
  • The 25+ year life of a solar system allows you to stabilize utility costs long-term. Plus, solar increases the value of your home!
  • We have to say it again – the 30% tax credit. There is no cap on its value – regardless of how small or large you system is, the tax credit will be there.
  • There is little to no maintenance with PV systems – and we include warranties!

Net-Metering

Most of us are not familiar with utility policies beyond knowing that your utilities send you a bill every month for what you use. The more you use the more you pay. But understanding the rules of connection becomes more important when you add solar energy production to your property. 

Check out our 2 minute video to the left to learn about net-metering. 

Service Contracts

At GAI we offer multiple service contract packages based on the various types of systems: 

  • Annual Roof Mount inspection, including checks of cables and clams, inverter cleaning and checks of function and air flow, and an energy production assessment. 
  • Annual Fixed and Adjustable Ground Mount System, including checks of cables and clamps, inverter cleaning and checks of function and air flow, and an energy production assessment, and twice-annual tilt angle adjustment. 
  • Battery Back-Up System, including either package 1 or 2 above, plus Battery Life assessment, terminal cleaning (where applicable), and a system switch-over test.

For the first year after installation we will complete the following checks on your system free of charge: adjusting tilt angle on ground-mount systems, checking wiring and clamp integrity, confirming proper inverter operation and cleaning ventilation fans (on models equipped with a fan), and service work on the rare warranty claims. Beyond the first year we will continue to monitor the system electronically through your inverter’s monitoring program. 

With GAI’s service program, you don’t have to do anything. When a visit is due, GAI will call to schedule a date and time. A GAI technician will arrive at your location as scheduled and perform the work. After our visit, we will send you a report detailing our visit.
