Federal Solar Tax Credits & Incentives

It’s now easier to GO SOLAR!

With a market value of $17 billion (seia.org), solar energy powers countless homes and has generated jobs for more than 250,000 Americans. One of the policies responsible for this growth is the Solar Investment Tax Credit (ITC). Since ITC’s passage in 2006, the solar industry grew 59%.

ITC: How Does It Work?

In simple terms, The Solar Investment Tax Credit serves as one of the pillars of stability for the solar industry. Whether you’re a business owner or a homeowner, owning a solar energy system lets you qualify for this program. With this legislation, 30% of the cost of your solar investment can be deducted from your federal taxes.

Tax Credits up to 2021

The Solar Investment Tax Credit isn’t permanent. Originally, the legislation was proposed to go on only until 2007 but with the help of solar advocates, Congress has extended the policy. Homeowners and businesses can now enjoy solar tax credits until 2021. 

This helps solar companies plan out innovation and investments, and help solar prices go down in the following years. Some solar installers, like Pep Solar, even let you get started on solar energy at little to no cost. If you’re thinking about investing in solar, now would be the best time.

PEP Solar offers 0% down to install on approved credit.

Claiming Your Solar Tax Credits

One of the advantages of owning your own solar panel system as opposed to leasing is you’re eligible for tax credits. After you have determined that you qualify for the Federal ITC, here are the steps to to claim the tax credit:

  • Step 1: Complete the IRS Form 5695 to validate your qualification
  • Step 2: Fill up your Individual Income Tax Return form 1040 and indicate your renewable energy credit information

Be sure to contact your tax adviser for more information on income tax returns.

Arizona Solar Tax Credit & Property Tax Exemptions

Arizona is one of the best solar states, not just because of the abundance of sunlight, but also because of the state’s legislation. The Arizona Solar Tax Credit lets homeowners enjoy a 25% tax credit up to $1,000 off their personal income tax.  

Pep Solar is the exclusive residential dealer of Solar Frontier, one of the most innovative brands in the industry. The Solar Frontier SF175-S employs the CIS thin-film technology, which has everything you need to maximize your solar potential.

The Solar Equipment Sales Tax Exemption means you don’t have to pay sales taxes upon purchase of your solar energy system. You can install solar air conditioning units for heating and cooling in your home and add value to it, without worrying about increased property tax. There are no additional property taxes on the value added to your home after investing in solar, under The Energy Equipment Property Tax Exemption.
