Financial Incentives

Financial incentives for installing a renewable energy system include tax credits, sales and property tax exemptions, and the offset cost of purchased electricity. One good source of information is DSIRE, the Database of State Incentives for Renewables and Efficiency, which lists and describes many federal, state and local incentives.

Tax Credit

There are 30 percent federal tax credits for photovotaic systems installed for both residential and commercial properties. Under current law, these credits will remain in effect through December 31, 2016. With the low cost of solar panels and the limited time on this tax credit, now is the time to install a photovoltaic system.


Currently, there are no utility rebates available in the territories served by Empowered Energy Systems, LLC, but since PV module prices have never been lower, this is a great time to have a system installed! Contact Empowered Energy Systems, LLC for details.
