Consumers in the U.S. have been struggling with the idea of having renewable energy as their main source of power for homes and businesses. What we know is that solar power has soared in popularity in recent years. Business owners are also “going solar” in record numbers as they realize the cost savings of doing so. And thanks to the federal government’s passage of the Energy Policy Act of 2005, there is now a solar tax credit! The 2016 federal spending bill authorized a 5-year extension of the solar panel tax credit. This makes solar power more affordable for all Americans, and that includes business owners. What Is The Solar Tax Credit? Known as the Investment Tax Credit (ITC), the federal solar tax credit makes it possible for homeowners and business owners alike to deduct up to 30 percent of the costs of installing a solar energy system from your federal taxes. Think of this as a 30-percent discount on the cost of going solar! The ITC is in effect for residential and commercial systems.
