Solar Investment Tax Credit (ITC) FAQ
There’s good news for folks planning to go solar this year: the federal government has signed on to help make it more affordable! At least in 2019, new solar homeowners are eligible for an income tax credit, amounting to no more than 30% of the total cost of your new solar system.
Since this is a credit, not a rebate, you will not get cash for going solar. Rather you just don’t have to pay that amount in taxes —it’s more of an “instant tax refund.”
