Residential Solar Incentives

These are the current residential solar energy incentives available in Vermont and New Hampshire, as well as the federal solar tax credits available to homeowners who go solar. At Catamount Solar, we’ll take care of the state paperwork so you can enjoy the benefits.

Federal Tax Credit

All new renewable energy systems qualify for a 30% federal tax credit. This federal solar tax credit for Vermont and New Hampshire homeowners is based on the full system price paid and is taken for the tax year that the system was completed. This credit has been authorized through 2019, and can be taken over two years if your tax liability in the initial year is too low to absorb the entire credit. In the year 2020 the credit will be reduced to 26% and in 2021 to 22%
