Federal Tax Credits
Federal tax credits are 30% of system costs of the total system cost after incentives (e.g. Energy Trust) which are paid directly to the contractor. These tax credits can be taken in the year the system is operational or can be carried forward if the credits exceed tax liability. There is no pass through option for federal tax credits. There is no maximum credit for systems placed in service after 2008.

Federal Tax Credits
The Federal Tax Credit is equal to 30% of expenditures, with no maximum credit. Eligible solar energy property includes equipment that uses solar energy to generate electricity, to heat or cool (or provide hot water for use in) a structure, or to provide solar process heat. Hybrid solar lighting systems, which use solar energy to illuminate the inside of a structure using fiber-optic distributed sunlight, are eligible. Passive solar systems and solar pool-heating systems are not eligible.
