California Solar Tax Credits in 2021

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

UPDATE: Federal Solar Tax Credit Extension

The federal government has extended the Solar Investment Tax Credit (ITC) for solar installations as part of the COVID-19 relief bill. If you install solar panels now through the end of 2022, you are entitled to a one-time federal tax credit of 26% off the total cost, including labor and installation. The tax credit will drop to 22% in 2023 and expire completely for residential solar installations by 2024.

Adding residential solar panels to your home is always a smart, money-saving investment. Even the dreaded income tax day of April 15th 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!

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.
