Solar Tax Credit to drop from 26% to 22%


the proposed NEM3 solar rate plan will transfer up to 75% of the homeowner's savings back to the utility provider.


PG&E has raised rates 17% since 2021. Over 9% this year alone.

Don't wait to go solar in 2022. This is your last BEST OPPORTUNITY.

The federal solar tax credit is set to drop again to 22% on Jan 1, 2023. Residential solar energy systems must be operational by December 31, 2022 to qualify for the 26% tax credit (please consult your tax professional).

Additionally, the NEM2 solar rate plan is going away! We expect the new rate plan, NEM3, will be implemented by the end of the year, if not sooner. NEM3 is a terrible plan for solar customers, that basically transfers about 75% of their solar savings back to the utility in the form of fees, taxes, and high buy-back rates.

Installing solar + battery + EV charger at the same time saves money and maximizes your total investment. Level 2 Chargers from $1,600 installed.

Why Should You Consider a Level 2 EV Charger Upgrade?

The plug that comes with most e-vehicles is typically a Level 1 EV charge connector. It plugs into a standard wall outlet for simple and convenient use. Level 1 chargers are slow, typically delivering only 2-3 mph of charge. A Level 2 EV charging system can charge up to 24 mph. Save time. Charge faster with a Level 2 EV Charger.

EV Chargers

Solarponics installs Level 2 EVSE, high power, high quality charging stations ranging from 12 amps to 80 amps. Level 2 chargers can charge up to 7X faster than a Level 1 cordset that comes with most electric vehicles.

Level 2 chargers are outdoor-rated, and come with up to 25 feet charging cable. Rebates may be available for EV charging + Solar energy systems. Compatible with all EV vehicles.

Solarponics can size and install an EV charging system for most vehicles for residential and commercial applications.
