Solar Panel Installation in Ohio
Custom Solar Installations for Homes, Farms, and Businesses
Do you think installing solar panels is time-consuming and expensive? You’re not alone.
Maybe you have another reason that’s holding you back from making the switch to solar. Think about it this way: Each month you put it off, the more money you lose to the electric company.
The truth is that more and more Ohio residents, farmers, and business owners are making the switch to solar.
Because it isn’t time-consuming or expensive with Paradise Energy Solutions.
- A properly installed solar electric array (aka, solar panel power) could save the average Ohio household $1,200 annually on electricity*
- Most of our home system installations are completed in 2 to 3 days. That’s it.
The main reason people in Ohio, and many across the country, are switching to solar power electric is economic. When you combine annual savings with state and federal tax incentives, it makes even more financial sense to go solar.
Electricity is relatively inexpensive now, only because most of it is produced using nonrenewable fossil fuels. As the long-term costs associated with extracting scarce fossil fuels rise, standard electricity prices will skyrocket. If you’ve switched to solar power, you’ll be protected from those rising costs because you‘ll be producing your own power!
*Based on an 8 kW solar panel system producing 9,600 kWh per year

Les Widder – Roscoe Village, Coshocton, OH
“Our electric bills have gone down immensely. A $220 bill from AEP turned into $7 a month.”
Les Widder, a retired school principal who lives in Coshocton, says his average bill from AEP is now $10-$11 a month after “going solar.”

Performance-Based Incentives Available in Ohio
Solar Renewable Energy Certificates (SRECs)
Renewable energy certificates are an economic incentive to develop additional alternative energy resources. Click here to see the current value of Ohio SRECs. In some cases, these SRECs can be contracted for several years, creating a more predictable source of income.

Federal & State Tax Incentives
A 30% tax credit allows you, as the homeowner, to claim a credit on your federal tax return worth 30% of the solar array installed cost. Photovoltaic systems must provide electricity for the residence, and must meet applicable fire and electrical code requirement in order to qualify for the tax credit. This credit can be carried forward to future tax years if it is not claimed in its entirety in the year that the solar panels are installed. For example, let’s say you’re claiming a $2,500 credit on a $2,000 tax bill – you can’t use the credit to get $500 back from the IRS. Instead, you’ll carry over the credit to the following tax year.
Tax Credit vs. Deduction
A tax credit is taken directly off your tax payment, rather than as a deduction from your taxable income. The solar panel tax credit may be applied to a primary residence, a vacation home, and for either an existing structure or new construction. Other than the cost of the system, there is no limit on the dollar amount of the credit.
A 30% tax credit allows the business owner to claim the cost of the system for 1 tax year prior to installation, and up to 20 years after installation. There is no maximum set for the credit. There are provisions for carryback of the credit to previous years and carry forward of the credit to future tax years.
Modified Accelerated Cost-Recovery System (MACRS) allows businesses to recover investments in solar property through depreciation deductions. This is achieved through a 5-year tax depreciation schedule, allowing a business to recover a portion of their investment quickly.
Eligible Solar Energy Systems Must Do One (or More) of the Following:*
• Generate electricity
• Heat or cool a building
• Provide hot water (for use in a structure, or to provide solar process heat)
