Federal incentives and depreciation for businesses are also available, which helps to further reduce the cost of solar.
Electric, gas, and oil rates have also been slowly rising over the past few years and have just recently spiked in many areas of the East Coast because of the cold winter.

The cost stability of solar over the next 25+ years is an attractive solution to high energy costs, and let's face it, solar is a lot more sustainable.
