DJH Construction, Inc., a leading integrator of solar electric power systems announced the completion of a residential photovoltaic installation located in Fort Mojave, Arizona. This 5.06 kW system was installed on the residence of Larry Morse. The solar project was completed from beginning to end in two and a half weeks. This includes: contract signing, permitting, utility rebate reservation, final inspection, and commissioning/start-up. The actual installation itself was completed in two days after materials delivery.

Current incentives available to Fort Mojave residents include: a Utility Rebate, State Tax Credit, and Federal Tax Credit. Mohave Electric Cooperative customers are able to take advantage of a $3.00/watt utility rebate with a $12,000 maximum. This means that clients like Morse are able to offset the cost of installation by the amount of the rebate. In addition to the rebate, Morse will be able to take advantage of a $1,000 Arizona Tax Credit and 30% Federal Tax Credit. The basis for the tax credits is calculated from the net cost of the installed system, the cost after deducting the rebate amount.

The 5.06 kW photovoltaic system ties together a total of 22 Sharp photovoltaic panels onto 900 square feet of roof space. The estimated reduction in green house gas emissions from this system is estimated to be 141 tons of CO2 over the 25+ years. This reduction in green house gas emissions is equivalent to planting 5,648 trees or driving 478,644 miles in a small car.

“The Morse’s solar project is another step in DJH Construction, Inc.’s long-term commitment to advance the delivery of renewable energy to the grid. We are grateful to play an active role in growing this nascent market in Fort Mojave and surrounding counties,” said Don Harris, president of DJH Construction, Inc.
