We like to eliminate 95% of your electric bill. With that said it isn’t always possible. On average we help our customers save around $150 each month, but that can vary from $60-$250 monthly savings.
 

How/when will I receive my rebate?

If you are in a location that offers a rebate then the rebate will go to us (DKD ENERGY) so we subtract your rebate amount from your total cost before we finance the loan. In short you get your rebate immediately, we have to wait about 2 months after install before we receive the rebate.
 

Do I get a tax credit?

Yes everybody who installs solar is eligible to receive a tax credit. How ever the amount will vary on your taxable income. So we recommend you talk to your CPA or Accountant.
If for any reason you can’t get the full rebate the first year you can spread the rebate amount over up to 5 years. So unless you don’t pay any taxes you should get your full tax credit back.
