Solar Installation Incentives

The federal government currently offers a 30% tax credit, which is often thought of as the top incentive to going solar. In addition to the solar tax credit, home and business owners who go solar can take advantage of net energy metering (NEM). NEM is offered through your utility provider and helps maximize your payback. NEM works when solar systems generate more power than needed, the excess energy is sold back to the grid.
