Solar Investment Tax Credit Extended for Two More Years

This entry was posted in Solar Services on by .

Thinking about going solar in 2021? We have some good news! The renewable energy tax credits have been extended, as part of the $1.4 trillion federal spending package, alongside the $900 billion COVID-19 virus relief spending bill. While the solar investment tax credit (ITC) was scheduled to be cut from 26% to 22% in 2021, this spending package is now enabling it to remain at 26% for two more years.

So, what does this change mean for Arizonans? It means big savings! Residential and businesses can still receive a tax credit of 26% in 2021 and 2022. Here’s how the credit works in this hypothetical example:

Let’s say you have a contract for a $40,000 solar system for your home. The 26% federal tax credit would give you $10,400 off, compared to $8,800 with the 22% credit. That works out to be an extra $1,600 in savings. The savings is a dollar-for-dollar credit off your income taxes for the year in which you install the solar panels. It’s applied to the cost after state incentives.

With two more years added to the step-down of the ITC, there’s plenty of reason to consider solar for your home. Get started by obtaining a free quote from Cool Blew Solar.
