Rebates and Credits

Federal Tax Credit

In December 2022, with the Inflation Reduction Act, the U.S. extended the Investment Tax Credit for solar at 30% through 2032. The solar Investment Tax Credit (ITC) is a dollar-for-dollar reduction of the income tax you owe. If your solar energy system generates electricity for a home in the United States, you qualify. 

What is covered? 

  • Solar Photovoltaic (PV) Panels
  • Energy storage devices (batteries) with a capacity rating of at least 3 kilowatt (kWh) hours 
  • Solar and battery equipment costs such as inverters, mounting hardware, and wiring
  • Labor costs for installation including fees related to permitting and inspections

Now is a great time to add solar and battery storage to your home and receive the 30% federal tax credit for both installations! For more information on how to claim the federal solar tax credit, visit the Department of Energy’s website at:

State Rebate

The California Solar Initiate (CSI) reached its 10th and final tier in April 2013, exhausting all its funds. However, there is still a state rebate in effect as part of the New Solar Home Partnership Program (NSHP), as an incentive to install solar on a new home.
