Welcome to the LG Solar Digital Showroom.
LG is focused on the quality of every solar panel that enters the market with their name on it. At their manufacturing facilities, they are certain every product is manufactured with the materials are chosen under stringent quality control procedures. LG solar panels are tested at in-house and third party testing laboratories, and are regularly tested up to three times the IEC standards to ensure a robust module. LG's goal is to provide the highest possible quality so they can live up to their reputation as a trusted global brand.
That's why Climax Solar has gone platinum with LG.
Higher Power Outputs, Higher Efficiency Modules
In the rare case that a module needs to be replaced or repaired, LG won’t just cover the cost of the materials; we’ll also cover labor costs up to $450.
When you choose LG solar products, you can feel confident that you are making a smart choice and investing in a quality product that will benefit your home for years to come.
To date, it’s true: Michigan hasn’t been at the forefront of solar power development in the United States. The Solar Energy Industries Association ranked Michigan 30th in solar energy for 2018 based on a variety of factors, including the number
of homes with installed solar (25,398), the percentage of electricity the state gets from solar (0.21%), and the number of solar jobs (4,196).
Still, there are plenty of Michiganders who would love to save money on their utility bills by going solar, especially since Michigan homeowners pay an average of 16 cents/kWh for electricity, more than 2 cents above the national average. Many people interested in solar are also motivated by the wish to do something positive for the environment. And although some people think solar power couldn’t work in a state known for cold, snowy winters, they couldn’t be more wrong. Detroit gets an average of 4.2 hours of full sun per day over the course of a year, certainly enough to support solar. Plus, solar panels actually perform well when it’s cold; in fact, cold temperatures typically improve panel output.
Michigan has Renewable Portfolio Standards (RPS) that require utilities to increase their production of energy from renewable energy sources, which encourages utilities to offer solar incentives to homeowners. Michigan has had an RPS law since 2008, and it was updated in 2016 to mandate 15% of all electricity must come from renewables by 2021.
So, if you live in Michigan and are considering installing solar panels, LG Solar salutes you! A number of programs are available to help you go solar and get the greatest value possible out of your solar investment.
As a way to promote clean and renewable energy, the federal government has put in place two nationwide solar incentives that are available to Michigan residents. Homeowners should apply for them shortly after installation is complete. Your LG
PRO installer can help you understand these incentives and how to apply.
The Federal Solar Tax Credit allows Americans in any state to deduct 26% of the cost of their residential solar installation from their federal taxes, dollar for dollar, through the end of 2020. The ITC then steps down to 22% for projects that begin construction in 2021. After 2021, the residential credit is scheduled to drop to zero, although a commercial and utility credit will remain. So lock in your ITC advantage by going solar now!
Customers of a public utility can save money at tax time because the money, credits or subsidies they earn are not taxable.
