Why Go Solar
Going solar in Arizona is not only a smart financial decision today but a stable, predictable investment for years to come. With electricity prices rising throughout the state and the cost of solar installation going down, now is the perfect time to switch to solar.
Arizona’s Renewable Portfolio Standard (RPS)
In 2006, the Arizona Corporation Commission adopted the final rules of the state’s Renewable Portfolio Standard (RPS), intended to increase the use of renewable resources throughout the state. Arizona’s standard requires state utility companies to sell 15% of their energy from renewable resources by 2025 – driving the nation’s $64 billion energy market closer to a greener future.
Reduce Your Electric Bill and Establish Energy Independence
In 2020, Phoenix broke its previous record for the most days over 100 degrees – reaching triple digits on 144 days last year. These consistent, scorching temperatures force homeowners in Arizona to rely on expensive local utilities to keep their homes cool.
Rising daily temperatures are not the only thing driving utility costs up in Arizona. Arizona’s largest utility company, Arizona Public Service (APS), is expected to raise rates by 3 – 6% for its 2.7 million customers at the end of 2021.
Switching to solar is a guilt-free and worry-free way for Arizona homeowners to reduce monthly energy costs and gain energy independence from local utilities.
Avoid the burden of energy budgeting on hot summer days and enjoy the freedom that comes with powering your life on your own terms with a custom-built Zenernet home solar system.
Build Equity in Your Home
Not only does solar power help you save on your utility bills, but it can also increase the value of your home. Recent studies show that installing solar panels in your home can increase the value of your home by up to 4.1%. With the median home value in Arizona nearing $366,343 in 2021, that’s a premium of more than $15,000.
Declaring energy independence, lowering utility costs, and building equity on your home are just a few of the reasons why Arizona residents are investing in solar with Zenernet.

Are Solar Panels Worth It
According to former Arizona Governor Janet Napolitano, solar power in Arizona has the potential to be the “Persian Gulf of solar energy.” Consistently ranked as the sunniest state in the U.S., it is no surprise that Arizona has such a promising future for solar energy production.
Arizona Has Seemingly Endless Sunshine
On average, the Grand Canyon State receives 292 sun-filled days per year and nearly 6.5 hours of peak sunlight per day. With 2.8x more sunny days than the average U.S. state, efficient solar energy production throughout the year is guaranteed in Arizona.
How Much Energy Can You Get from Solar in Arizona?
The average home in Arizona uses approximately 12,815 kWh of power each year. With Zenernet home solar systems, Arizona homeowners stand to generate up to 1.5 kilowatt-hours/day – enough to easily cover your daily energy needs and live comfortability without the worry of high electricity bills.
Choosing The Right Solar Panels
For Your Home
When it comes to choosing the right solar equipment for your home, there is a lot to consider. Solar Panels – the most visible component of your system – are not one size fits all. Solar panels vary by type, appearance, performance, and cost.
In addition to the panels, there are several other essential components to your home solar system, including but not limited to the inverter, battery, and racking system. When it comes time to decide on the right equipment for your home, it’s important to remember that every home and location is unique.
At Zenernet, we work with you to design the perfect solar system for your unique needs. We partner with the leading solar equipment manufacturers on the market today to source the best quality solar equipment available. These partnerships allow our team of experts to create a custom combination of components for your home, so you only pay for the solar system you want – nothing more.

Tax Credits and Exemptions
Going solar doesn’t have to be a financial burden. With Zenernet, many homeowners can switch to solar with as little as zero money down and get paid to go solar with federal and state tax credits.
By taking advantage of tax credits and exemptions, Arizonians can significantly offset solar installation costs and see a return on their investment in as little as seven years.
Arizona Residential Solar Energy Tax Credit
With Arizona’s Residential Solar and Wind Energy Systems Tax Credit, residents can receive a tax credit of 25% against income taxes owed at the end of the year. The maximum reimbursement allowed with this tax credit is $1,000, regardless of the number of solar devices installed on a single residential property.
Tax Exemptions for Arizona Solar Panels
There are two tax exemptions available for Arizona solar panels. Under Arizona’s Solar and Wind Equipment Sales Tax Exemption, residents are exempt from paying sales tax on all home solar system components. Second, under Arizona’s property tax exemption, residents are exempt from paying additional property tax on the increased value of their homes after installing solar panels.
Feed-In Tariff in Arizona
In 2016, Arizona lawmakers voted to replace the existing net metering program with a “net billing” program – also known as “feed-in tariffs.” Although not as generous as previous net metering policies, “net billing” requires utility providers to credit homeowners for excess energy returned to the grid from their home solar systems.
Federal Solar Investment Tax Credit (ITC)
Since implementing the Federal Solar Investment Tax Credit (ITC) in 2006, the U.S. solar industry has grown by more than 10,000%. Due to the success of this program, homeowners will continue to benefit from this tax deduction through 2024. The ITC is a dollar-for-dollar credit claimed on your federal income taxes, meaning if you install a home solar system that costs $12,000, you can get up to $3,120 back on your taxes at the end of the year.
All Zenernet solar installations qualify for the Federal tax credit and Arizona-specific tax credits and exemptions. In preparation for your solar installation, our team of energy experts will help you take advantage of the solar tax credit and incentive opportunities that are available to you.
