Solar Incentive Information:

Federal Solar Incentives

Federal Energy Tax Credit
The Federal Energy Policy Act of 2005 created tax credits for solar water heating and solar electric (PV or photovoltaic) systems. Homeowners are eligible for tax credits on qualified solar water heating and photovoltaic systems. Businesses are eligible for similar credits on solar equipment.

Treated like a payment already made toward the taxes you owe, a tax credit provides a bigger financial reward than a tax deduction. You claim the credit when filing your tax return for the year the system is installed. Both business and residential tax credits are for 30% of the cost of the system.

State Solar Incentives


Florida Sales Tax Exemption
The Florida Legislature was so convinced that solar was good for Florida, they created a permanent sales tax exemption for residential solar in 2005. In 2016, Florida voters passed Amendment 4 to exempt ad valorem taxes for commercial solar systems beginning in 2018 as well.
