California Solar Tax Credits in 2020

Learn More about California Solar Rebates from our Fresno Solar Company!

Adding residential solar panels to your home is always a smart, money-saving investment. Even April 15, the dreaded income tax day of approaches, you’ll have reasons to celebrate your newfound energy efficiency.

Our team will provide you with the Manufacturer Certification Statement required to obtain this deduction. Once your panels are installed, the savings continue with a substantially lower monthly energy bill. You may even be able to eliminate your monthly power bill completely!

If you install solar panels this year, you are entitled to a one-time federal tax credit of 26% off the total cost, including labor and installation. Learn more by calling our Fresno solar experts at (559) 377-7080!

Act Now! Upcoming Changes to Tax Incentives for California Homeowners:

The one-time federal tax credit of 26% for homeowners is set to drop gradually over the next couple of years, and to go away entirely by the end of 2021. If you are considering making the switch to solar, 2020 is the year to do it!

Upcoming tax credit changes:

  • 2019 - Residential solar customers can receive a 30% tax rebate of the total cost of solar until December 31, 2019.
  • 2020 - At the beginning of 2020, the tax incentive rate will drop to 26% of the total cost.
  • 2021 - At the beginning of 2021 the tax credit will drop to 22%, and then finally drop to 0% by the end of the year.

Additional Tax Savings When You Sell Your Home

When you have a solar energy system on your property, this is referred to as a capital improvement – this means that it has added to your property’s value, and may make it a more attractive option for potential buyers. By investing in this efficient energy solution, you are also adding to your home’s tax basis. Upon selling the home, this investment may be deducted from the sale price, lessening the value counted as profit and therefore reducing the tax burden.
