Take Advantage of Solar Energy Incentives

Federal and state solar energy incentives can dramatically reduce the cost of shifting your business to solar. And by doing your state paperwork for you, we ease the path to a faster investment return.

In all cases, we recommend that you work closely with your accountant or tax professional  who will be more familiar with how the potential benefits of these incentives relate to the unique circumstances of your particular tax situation.

Federal Incentives

26% Tax Credit and Depreciation

Good through 2023

Applicable to all new renewable energy systems

Taken for the tax year that the system was completed.
Commercial tax credit can roll forward for up to 20 years.

MACRS Accelerated 5-year Depreciation

Commercial renewable energy systems can be depreciated according to the accelerated 5-year MACRS depreciation
schedule which, depending on your business’s tax bracket, can help reduce your system payback rate even faster. Currently,
100% bonus depreciation in Year 1 is also possible.
