Did you know you can save thousands on your solar system?

Federal, State, and Local Incentives

The Federal Solar Tax Credit, known as Investment Tax Credit (ITC), currently allows you to deduct 26% of your solar energy system from your federal taxes.  The Solar Investment Tax Credit (ITC) is a federal tax credit that is a dollar-for-dollar reduction on income taxes.

The federal solar tax credit is a tax credit that you can receive when filing your annual tax return. The tax credit equals 26% of the total cost of your home solar energy system. For example, if your solar energy system costs you a total of $20,000 then you can expect to apply $5,200 in credit to your tax return.

There is no limit to the amount you can claim on this credit. Whether your solar system costs $10,000 or $10,000,000, if you meet the eligibility criteria, you can claim your 26% tax credit on this amount.

The latest extension of the solar tax credit came last December, and it gives homeowners and businesses up to a 26 percent credit on the net cost of a solar system. The 26 percent credit is in effect for two more years before it drops to 22 percent in 2023 and sunsets altogether for homeowners in 2024. The credit for businesses follows a similar path, with the exception being that its credit falls to 10 percent in 2024 and will stay at that number in future years.
