Federal Tax Incentives

The federal solar tax credit: all you need to know

The investment tax credit (ITC), also known as the federal solar tax credit, allows you to deduct 30 percent of the cost of installing a solar energy system from your federal taxes. The ITC applies to both residential and commercial systems, and there is no cap on its value.

The average Solar Revolution customer saves nearly $9,000 on the cost of going solar as a result of the ITC.

Curious as to how much you can save on solar? 

How the solar tax credit works

As long as you own your solar energy system, you are eligible for the solar investment tax credit. Even if you don’t have enough tax liability to claim the entire credit in one year, you can “roll over” the remaining credits into future years for as long as the tax credit is in effect.  Lastly, it’s important to note that there is no income limit on the ITC program, so taxpayers in all income brackets may be eligible. 

What’s covered by the tax credit? 

Homeowners who leverage the 30 percent ITC can plan to see the following covered: 

  • Cost of solar panels

  • Labor costs for installation, including permitting fees, inspection costs, and developer fees 

  • Any and all additional solar equipment, like inverters, wiring, and mounting hardware 

  • Home batteries charged by your solar equipment

  • Sales taxes on eligible expenses
