State and local rebates combined with federal tax credits can cover as much as 40% to 60% of the cost of a solar water heating or photovoltaic system.


Why are tax credits a great incentive? First a disclaimer. We are not offering legal or tax advice. You must consult a qualified CPA or tax attorney about your situation.


In general, a TAX DEDUCTION is an expense or an amount of money which lowers your taxable income. It is subtracted "off-the-top" from the amount of money you made throughout the year, your gross income, therefore reducing your adjusted gross income, or AGI, which is used to calculate your tax liability.


A TAX CREDIT reduces your tax liability (the amount you pay to the federal government) dollar-for-dollar, regardless of your AGI or tax bracket. This is why tax credits can be much more valuable as an incentive than a tax deduction.

The ITC is the investment tax credit for businesses and allows you to deduct 30% of the total project cost with labor and materials the first year. The balance of 70% can be split up over the next 4-5 years. This allows the business to get 100% write off and energy savings. We are not offering legal or tax advice. You must consult a qualified CPA or tax attorney about your situation.
