Facts Regarding Eligibility of the Federal Tax Credit:
  • The home served by the system does not have to be the taxpayer’s principal residence.
  • If the federal tax credit exceeds your tax liability, the excess amount may be carried forward to the succeeding taxable year.
  • There is no ceiling on the tax credit.
  • Applies to equipment AND installation costs.

For Residential Renewable Energy Systems, use IRS Tax Form 5695 to report your expenses. (It can be used for any residence, not just your primary one.) Learn more about residential tax credits. Commercial systems have similar guidelines as residential systems but use IRS Tax Form 3468. Click on the DSIRE Link below to lean more about commercial tax credits.

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.
