Solar Energy Incentives

We identify and help you take advantage of any incentive and/or rebate that is available. Solarponics also occasionally has internal solar energy incentives and rebates. Your energy analyst will always present you with the best possible current incentive that you are eligible for to save you the most money.

The Federal Investment Tax Credit for solar energy is currently 26%.

The Solar Energy Investment Tax Credit is a 26% dollar-for-dollar federal tax credit for solar energy system install on residential or commercial properties that is available through Dec. 31, 2020.

WHO IS IT FOR? The 26% federal tax credit is available to any homeowner in the United States who installs a qualifying solar energy system by December 31, 2020. The 26% federal tax credit also extends to commercial buildings as well.

EXPIRES: The ITC is set to drop at the end of 2020, FROM 26% to 22%. That means for the average 7kW residential solar energy system, a homeowner can save an additional $ 700± just by installing before Dec. 31, 2020.

If you have BP Solar Panels, you may be entitled to replacement of the solar panels and/or a new inverter from a Class Action Settlement.

A Settlement has been reached in a class action lawsuit about solar panels manufactured by BP Solar International, Inc. (“BP”) between 1999 and early 2007 with an S-type junction box (“Class Panels”). See Question 3, below for a list of affected BP model numbers. The Plaintiffs’ complaint alleges the Class Panels are prone to junction box failures, which could cause burn marks, shattered glass at the junction box, and a potential fire hazard. The Defendants deny these allegations.

If you think you may have the BP solar panels in question, please call Solarponics and we will help you determine if your solar panels are affected and qualify for replacement. (805) 466-5595.
