Renewable Energy Incentives


There are a variety of Federal & State financial incentives available to home-owners & business-owners that are designed to "encourage" energy efficiency upgrades as well as the installation of renewable energy​ additions such as solar hot water and solar PhotoVoltaic systems.


These incentives include rebates, sales tax savings, renewable energy credits (RECs), net-metering, and income tax deductions.  Incentives vary from state to state, and some of them vary depending on which electrical co-operative or utility supplies your electricity.


Most of these incentives are tied to specific state or federal statutes with "use by" dates.  And, of course, statutes can be modified and/or amended, and the specific amount of $$$$ involved can, and often does, change with time.
