Now is the Best Time to Finance Solar


Financing solar makes sense now more than ever. The new tax reform and legislative terms include a 30% Federal Investment Tax Credit that is valid through 2019. Specifically, this allows the customer to deduct 30 percent of the cost of installing a solar energy system from their federal taxes. Additionally, there’s no maximum limit on the amount spent or saved on a system.

What does this mean for timing? 

The Federal Investment Tax Credit (ITC) will remain at 30% through 2019. Depending on the size & scope, some projects may take up to 12 months to complete from time of contracting. Now is the time to begin the proposal and vetting process for your next solar project. Take advantage of the highest tax credits for the foreseeable future.

Federal ITC “Sunset” Schedule:

  • Thru 2019: 30%

  • Thru 2020: 26%

  • Thru 2021: 22%

  • 2022 & beyond: 10%
