Government Incentives

U.S. Federal

The federal government offers a 30% federal tax credit of the total installed system cost. You can claim this tax credit until the entire 30% is reached. For example, if 30% of the system cost is $6,000, and you owe $4,000 in Federal Taxes, you will get the entire $4,000 back the first tax year, and $2,000 the following year.
