Solar For Your Beach House At The Jersey Shore
Installing solar panels on your beach house at the Jersey Shore can be a great way to save money on your energy bills and contribute to the fight against global climate change.
Solar installations at the Jersey Shore are particularly popular because most homeowners only use their beach house during the summer months when the sun is strongest.
Additionally, energy consumption at the beach can be much lower on average than energy consumption at an individuals year-round residence.
We have successfully installed solar PV systems on beach houses throughout the South Jersey Shore and have helped many families save money on electricity bills at their summer vacation homes.
Why NJ Homeowners Are Making The Switch
Home solar systems have always been popular in the State of New Jersey, but the demand for solar solutions has exploded in recent years. Many homeowners are discovering that generating their own solar power can actually be much cheaper than purchasing standard electricity from the big utility companies.
Attractive Cost Benefits
The latest data from the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) shows that the price of residential electricity in New Jersey is 25% higher than the national average.
The cost benefit of solar energy has become increasingly attractive due rising energy prices combined with a significant drop in the price of solar technology over recent years. In fact, data from the U.S. solar industry shows that the costs associated with switching to solar have declined by more than 64% over the last five years alone!
Save Big With Solar Investment Tax Credits
New Jersey homeowners are also eligible for the Solar Investment Tax Credit (ITC) which can significantly reduce the total costs of a residential solar PV system. The Solar Investment Tax Credit is a federal tax credit that can reduce the costs of a residential solar system by up to 30% for homeowners who buy a the system outright.
Many residents in New Jersey are deciding to jump on the opportunity before it’s too late as the program will begin phasing out in 2019.
Increased Home Values
Did you know that installing rooftop solar panels can actually increase the value of your home?
A study conducted by the U.S. Department of Energy’s Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory found that home buyers are consistently willing to pay a premium for homes equipped with solar panels. Specifically, research showed that, on average, home buyers are willing to pay about $15,000 more for a home with the average-size solar photovoltaic system (3.6 kilowatts).
As a leader in solar policy, New Jersey legislation allows property tax exemptions for homeowners whose property value increases as a result of solar investments. In other words, you won’t have to pay higher property taxes even if the value of your home increases!

What Our Customer Say About Us
"Proud owners of a solar powered beach house! My husband and I had solar panels installed on our home in Pennsylvania a few years ago and we've been saving money on our electric bills ever since. We recently decided that it would make sense to switch to solar power for our beach house in Wildwood, NJ. The company that we used in Pennsylvania referred us to EcoGen America and we couldn't be happier with our experience. It was so nice working with people who know what they are doing when it comes to solar."Rating: 5.0 ★★★★★
