Get the Most Out Of Your Solar Investment
Business owners can benefit from a number of programs aimed at making solar energy more affordable to install, including state and federal tax credits. Below is a quick breakdown of incentives currently available for installing commercial solar energy systems.
Federal Solar Tax Credit (ITC)
The Federal Solar Tax Credit, also known as the investment tax credit (ITC), allows you to deduct 30 percent of the cost of your solar energy system from your federal taxes.
Solar Renewable Energy Certificates
Solar Renewable Energy Certificates (SRECs) are solar incentives that allow system owners to sell energy certificates to their utility company. Owners earn one SREC for every 1,000 kilowatt hours (kWh) produced by their solar panel system.
Under the Modified Accelerated Cost-Recovery System (MACRS), businesses can recover investments in certain properties through depreciation deductions. A number of solar energy technologies are classified as five-year property.
USDA Rural Energy for America Program
USDA’s Rural Energy for America Program (REAP) provides guaranteed loan financing and grant funding (up to 25% of total project cost) to agricultural producers and rural small businesses for solar energy systems.
State Solar Incentives
Maryland, Virginia, and Washington D.C. all offer grants and incentives to help you get the most out of your solar investment.
Net metering allows owners of solar energy systems to receive full retail credit for any excess electricity their renewable energy systems generate.
