Solar power systems aren’t just great for the environment and for saving on your energy bills, they also offer big tax incentives and a healthy SREC market if you live in NJ. In fact, our state offers some of the best solar incentives in the country! Here are the NJ solar rebates and incentives for 2019.
Solar sales tax exemption: You are 100% exempt from any sales tax when purchasing your home solar system, a 7% savings on all your solar equipment.
Property tax exemption: Home solar systems are in high demand, and many homeowners invest in these systems in order to add value to their home and achieve a more attractive sales price. Fortunately, NJ residents investing in home solar systems do not have to pay any additional property tax on the value that system adds to your home.
Federal solar tax credit: You are also subject to the federal investment tax credit, reducing the cost of your home solar system by 30% when buying it outright.
NJ net metering: Through this program, you can sell any additional energy your home generates back into the grid at the retail rate. This is fairly profitable, as the retail rate is higher than the bulk rate utilities receive their electricity at and means that you never waste energy.
Solar Renewable Energy Certificates (SRECs): Each time your solar system produces one megawatt-hour of energy, you earn one SREC. These SRECs can then be sold on to utilities who use them to meet NJ Renewable Portfolio Standards. The price of these SRECs changes according to supply and demand and has ranged between $165 and $262 over the last few years.

On behalf of myself and the team I welcome you to the website of Green House Solar!
My name is Frank Curran, and I am a licensed electrician who started working in the solar industry in Colorado over a decade ago. When my family and I moved to northern New Jersey I knew that bringing solar energy solutions to folks was what I wanted to focus my professional energy on. Over the last decade I’ve built a successful business doing primarily Solar Panel Installations for homes, Solar Power Backup, Solar Panel Maintenance, Backup Generator Systems, and even lighting conversions for companies wanting to go LED. Lot’s of green stuff!
I have been successful I think, because I’m big enough to have all the team resources, equipment, and skillsets that people need to insure their system is installed correctly and in a timely fashion. Yet I’m not so big that I need to charge ridiculous overheads, or take an impersonal approach to the decision making process. We are straight shooters about solar, and about how WE do solar and so I don’t really have to sell folks, I think the facts about solar speak for themselves.
With our affiliation with SunPower, our customers now get the very best solar panels in the world, along with financing options that make solar affordable to everyone. They also get a lifetime support guarantee through SunPower which allows their panels to be serviced by Green House Solar, or any of dozens of authorized SunPower installers across New Jersey. You’ll never be left hanging out to dry when you go with SunPower, no matter how many years in the future you have a problem.
I really believe in, and enjoy what I do. I hope you’ll consider getting a quote from us for your Home or Office Solar or Backup Power project.

What kind of Solar Panels will you Use on My House?
Greenhouse Solar is an authorized Sunpower solar panel dealer. We now use Sunpower solar panels exclusively because after many years of installing and using other types of panels, we came to the conclusion that Sunpower was simply making the best panels there is. They are better made, higher efficiency, more design forward (better aesthetics) than other panels we’ve tried. In the long run this actually makes them cheaper even though another panel may be slightly cheaper to purchase initially. The adage “You get what you pay for..” is certainly true with Solar Panels and when we talk with you we would be happy to explain why.
