Bethlehem Farm\u2019s Green Neighbors program is helping local homeowners, nonprofits, and churches get affordable solar panels! Residents of Greenbrier, Summers, and Monroe counties who are at or below the US median income of $68,703 are eligible to apply for an interest-free loan of up to $12,000 for the cost of materials and installation.\r\n\r\nSunshine is plentiful - Bethlehem Farm can help you to use the sun\u2019s energy to power your home. But, if the sun isn\u2019t shining, you will still have power through your existing grid connection. Solar panels will meet all or part of a household\u2019s electricity demand and reduce monthly power bills. As you pay back your loan each month, based on your electricity bill savings, each repayment will go toward funding solar panels for another local.\r\n\r\nIf you install solar panels in 2021, you may be eligible for a 26% tax credit for the next two years. Lower taxes, smaller electricity bills - what\u2019s not to love? Once you install solar panels, you can continue to produce your own electricity for years to come.\r\n\r\nSolar panels also empower a household to care for the environment by using less energy from fossil fuels. Solar, a clean energy source, doesn\u2019t release harmful emissions. Help protect the beauty of West Virginia by installing solar today!\r\n\r\nFor more information or to request an application, please contact Gemma or Will at 304-445-7143 or visit bethlehemfarm.net\/solar-panels.
