Tax Tips For People Considering Green Energy Solutions

Posted by Benita N. Powell on in Online Site

Investigate options for heating your oven through solar energy. These can even be made yourself using items such as a box, a discarded window, and some tin foil. The internal temperature of these easy-to-build ovens can top 300 degrees, and they do not require any energy besides the sun’s rays. Be sure to cover your windows with drapes or blinds when not at home. They will help to keep the temperature and the energy consumption of the house down when the house is vacant. Usually, windows that face south receive the most sunlight. Install window coverings like heavy curtains, drapes, roman or roller shades, or blinds on all windows.

Look for federal and local rebates that apply to renewable energy at home. There are times when your utility company can offer discounts and rebates for your upgrade costs. Also look into tax deductions offered by the government that may apply to your green energy technology. These tax savings can reduce the net cost of installing alternative energy technology considerably.
