Solar Tax Credits, Rebates, and Refunds
Solar energy incentives can pay up to 40-50% of the cost of a solar hot water or solar electric system installation. Below are some examples of the various refunds and rebates available, please contact us now for more information about the various ways going solar pays you back!
Federal Solar Tax Credits
The IRS is offering a tax credit for up to 30% of the value of your installed solar water heater, solar attic fan, or solar electric system, whether it is installed in a new home or retrofitted in an older home. Keep in mind this is not a tax deduction, this is a tax credit, so you get 30% of the total cost back. At the end of 2015, Congress voted to extend this credit for solar for another three years. It will then ramp down incrementally through 2021, and remain at 10 percent permanently beginning in 2022.
Utility Company Refunds
Many central Florida cities, including Deltona, Deland, Orange City, Gainesville, and Jacksonville, have additional rebates available for solar system purchases. These rebates can be as high as $800.
