Federal Tax Credits
Rebates and Incentives
Many government agencies, utilities and other municipalities offer a variety of tax credits, rebates and incentives to support energy efficiency, encourage the use of renewable energy sources, and back efforts to conserve energy and lessen pollution. You can visit www.energy.gov to find out what incentives might be available in your area.
Electricity Rate Increases
PG&E has raised their rates about 6% per year since 1970. The moment you go solar is the moment you start saving money and at an increasing rate over time. That is incentive in and of itself.
