The Cost of Solar in 2020

The Cost of Solar in 2020

Alternative Energy

Solar technology is getting better year after year, but the best time to take advantage of tax credits and incentives is right now! With an informed and strategic combination of all available rebates and credits, homeowners save thousands over the life of their solar panel systems.

If you are considering switching to a solar energy system, it can be overwhelming to navigate through all available solar companies while also figuring out which incentives you qualify for. When purchasing solar panels, you most likely want to find a good balance between quality service and affordability.

At Momentum Solar, we believe in offering our customers all available information so they can make an educated decision on which solar energy service provider is right for them. Here’s a breakdown of what goes into the cost of going solar!

Tax Credits

The federal solar tax credit, also known as the investment tax credit (ITC), allows solar energy owners to deduct 26% of the cost of installing the solar system from their federal taxes. It is one of the most critical incentives for home solar power in the United States implemented by the federal government today.

The federal solar tax applies to both residential and commercial systems – every user that owns their systems, as opposed to renting them, qualifies for this deduction. This credit can be applied to personal income taxes that would otherwise be payed to the federal government.

Residential and commercial solar energy system owners can deduct 26% of the cost of installation for systems that have begun construction through 2020. The ITC then decreases to 21% in 2021, and finally 10% beginning in 2022.

Taxpayers will receive the most out of their tax credit if they invest in solar energy today!

Rebates and Incentives

In addition to federal tax credits, customers can benefit from state, county and utility rebates. The Database of State Incentives for Renewables & Efficiency (DSIRE) [1] has an interactive map that displays solar incentives by state.

You can also speak to a dedicated solar energy specialist at Momentum Solar to find out what incentives you may qualify for. We will happily provide you with all available rebates and incentives in your area!
