Are there incentives and tax credits for installing solar PV systems?

Yes. There is a federal tax credit of 30% through 2019, then a slow phase out of the credit by the end of 2021. In addition, there may be state or local income tax credits, property tax exemptions, and rebate programs from government agencies. Your cooperative may offer payments or credits based on electricity generation, loans, net metering policies, and others. These vary by state, city, and utility, and may also depend on whether the system is purchased or leased. Find information about your state’s programs on the DSIRE USA website. Be sure to consult with your financial and tax advisor.
