Reduce Then Produce
Greenify recognizes the importance of energy efficiency in homes and our goal is to help our customers achieve maximum comfort. We believe in reducing your utility usage by implementing recommended energy efficient upgrades and then producing your own electricity through solar panel installation.
What is Net Metering?
Net Metering is an agreement with the utility, for you to bank your unused solar power and then reuse it when you need it (during the night). You essentially sell back the extra power you’re Solar Panel system produces to your utility company and they give you a credit in return. Since most solar homes are still connected to the power grid, when they use less electricity than their solar panels produce, this energy is added to the grid and you are given a credit. After Nov 15th Rocky Mountain Power is reducing the dollar amount $$$ that they credit back for overproduced energy. Get Grandfathered in to the current and very attractive Net Metering Agreement before the rate plan changes.

Top Reasons to go Solar with Greenify
Potential Savings: Many Greenify customers literally make money from solar panel installation. Customers financing their Greenify solar project frequently pay less per month for their solar than their previous electric utility bill.
Energy Independence: Rather than “renting” your electric power from Rocky Mountain Power (or your municipal electric provider), own your own electric power production with solar panels.With Greenify’s off-grid systems, say goodbye forever to your power company, while protecting yourself from grid-wide power outages.
Protection Against Rate Hikes: In just the last five years Rocky Mountain Power’s electric rates in Utah have increased 24%. That is an average of 4.8% per year! Assuming a $150 current electric bill, and presuming similar future increases, in seven years your monthly bill would be $208. It would be $484 per month in 25 years. With solar generated power, you lock in your rates for the next 25-30 years the day your solar panel system is activated. (Source: http://www.psc.state.ut.us).
Increased Home Value: Greenify solar panels will add substantial resale value to your home. In a 12-year nationwide study of nearly 20,000 homes, Motley Fool, a respected national financial adviser, found that with a 3.6 kilowatt solar panel system, home values increased an average of $15,000. The average residential solar project in Utah is about seven kilowatts. Based on this data, Utah homeowners could expect a $15,000-$25,000 increase in their home’s market value when adding solar panels.
Tax Advantages: Installing solar panels is a great way to lower your tax liability. Wouldn’t it be nice if you bought a $30,000 car and you also received an $11,000 federal and state income tax credit? Installing solar panels will provide a comparable tax benefit. In addition to a 30% federal income tax credit, the state of Utah offers a 25% income tax credit up to a maximum of $2,000 for installing a solar panel system.
Environmental Impact: Everybody wants to do their part to save the environment and reduce their carbon footprint if they incur no additional financial burden. Greenify’s solar solutions make sense financially and environmentally. An average size Greenify solar panel install eliminates greenhouse gas emissions equivalent to 8,052 pounds of coal burned per year, or gas emissions equal to 17,786 automobile miles driven. It can save an estimated 6.12 forested acres per year.When you commit to solar, you’ll feel good about your contribution to preserving our priceless environment, through clean power.
