Buy solar panels to save money and get tax breaks
(ARA) - Many people consider buying solar panels because they are friendly to the earth and help them save money on their monthly bills. These are both great reasons, but there's another motive for buying solar panels: tax breaks and incentives.

Why solar?
Many people look at solar power as an investment that improves their property and cuts expenses, while being kind to the Earth. Solar power gives you independence from utility companies. Power generated from the solar panels means less power purchased from the utility companies, which can lead to being less vulnerable to future price increases.

Funding help available
Another great reason to install a solar panel system is that you are most likely eligible to receive cash rebates and energy tax credits from the IRS. When you shop around for the best deals, make sure to ask about state and local incentives; some states can save you additional money through specific programs.

Where to start when ready to buy
Finding a reputable solar panel seller and installer has just become easier, thanks to BuyerZone, a free online resource that's been used by 3 million buyers to get the information they need and find a quality contractor to do the work.

Through BuyerZone, you can request a home site visit from qualified installers in your area and compare brands and offers from multiple solar panel dealers and manufacturers. You'll find a qualified contractor with the best service at the best price. This BuyerZone service is free to use.

The pros at BuyerZone also provide purchasing advice. Here are the top tips from BuyerZone when shopping for solar panels:

1. Meet with suppliers in person. Reputable solar panel companies will meet with you at your home, look around your property, discuss your needs and possible limitations, and suggest solutions.
2. Get quotes from up to 4 different installers. Make sure you get all pricing quotes in writing, including labor, installation and warranties.
3. Get references. Once you receive quotes and narrow down your search of suppliers and installers, get references from each provider. Then, choose the company you trust the most.
