Solar residential


On a personal level there are incentives when it comes to solar power. If you have upgraded your energy to different solar options, make sure that you know what advantage can come to you from this. For residential situations, the income tax credit is 25 percent of the system installation costs. This price may reach up to two grand for every unit.


There are a few different systems that will fall under this credit, including solar electric systems, passive solar thermal systems, wind turbines, geothermal pumps, and more. When you make upgrades such as this in your home, be aware of how they can change your bills, and help to cut back on your taxes.


Solar commercial


For solar changes on a commercial level, it is given as a refundable credit. There are a few different types of commercial systems that are eligible for tax credits, including active and passive solar thermal systems, wind turbines, geothermal heat pumps, and more. If you are working with any of these on a commercial level, look into the different options. The total amount of costs that can be used will vary in this situation, depending on if it is working on an investment tax credit or a production tax credit. Find out beforehand what you can get.
