West Hills, California maybe a 30-minute drive from Los Angeles but the district in the San Fernando Valley is worlds apart especially when it comes to using sustainable energy. West Hills has embraced the alternative energy movement encouraging its residents, communities and even its businesses and local educational institutions to fit themselves into the green movement in some way. Residents have been gobbling up West Hills Solar Panels with abandoned.

West Hills Solar Panels Popular Among Businesses

Businesses have even gotten in on the act, using the solar power incentives offered by state and federal governments to invest in green energy and jobs. One way businesses can use solar panels as an investment is by installing the panels on their large facilities even if those facilities are used only at night. Many businesses do this because they have night operations where they are using energy when the sun is not up but collect energy during the day when their operations are dormant and send that energy back to the electricity grid to benefit the entire community. The businesses receive rebates and incentives for this service. They also receive the rhetoric to tell their consumers that they are reducing their carbon footprint even though they haven’t changed their energy output at all. Some may call it a sleight of hand but many businesses are touting the practice because it allows them to collect solar power and funnel it to the electricity grid to help others in the community consume less traditional power off the grid.

Installing West Hills Solar Panels Helps Create Jobs

Just what are the incentives for using solar power? Currently, they are good, although they are dwindling so homeowners and businesses who want to get in on the green power movement should not delay. With the rising popularity of solar projects and the recession, state and federal governments are reneging on some of their lucrative incentives and tax rebates for homeowners and businesses to jump on the alternative energy bandwagon. Some sweet incentives include a 30 percent federal tax credit, created by the government stimulus funds, allocating up to $35 million to eight counties in the San Joaquin Valley. This is good news for the residents there as they get to write off a huge chunk of their high-cost solar panels but it also is good for job seekers.
