Federal Tax Credit

The Federal Tax Credit is a major incentive for homeowners looking to install residential solar systems. This tax credit offers 30% ITC (Investment Tax Credit) on the total cost of the solar system, which can be used to offset the homeowner's federal tax liability.

Net Billing

Net Billing is another incentive that can help homeowners save money on their energy bills. With net billing, homeowners can offset their energy costs and even earn credits for any excess energy generated by their solar system. In California, utilities will net the homeowner's energy production and consumption instantly, which means credits will be calculated based on the going rate of energy at the time of day and day of week the excess energy is generated.

Sales and Use Tax Exemption for Electric Power Generation and Storage Equipment

California offers a Sales and Use Tax Exemption for Electric Power Generation and Storage Equipment, which includes solar equipment and solar batteries. This means that homeowners can save money on the purchase of their new residential solar system, as the purchase of solar equipment is exempt from state sales and use tax.

Property Tax Exclusion

In California, active solar energy systems and equipment are excluded from evaluation for property tax purposes. This means that homeowners won't have to worry about higher property taxes due to the value added by their solar system. This incentive is scheduled to end on January 1, 2025.

Renewables Portfolio Standard

California is a leading state in renewable energy, thanks in part to its strong Renewables Portfolio Standards (RPS). The RPS mandates that California generate 60% of all its energy from renewable sources by 2030. Utilities face high fees if the standards are not met, which creates strong incentives for them to offer solar incentives to homeowners.

Electric Rates

Electric rates in California are among the highest in the country. For this reason, investing in solar energy can be a financially rewarding decision for homeowners. By switching to solar energy, homeowners can reduce their reliance on traditional energy sources and save money on their energy bills over time.
