Federal Solar Tax Credit

The  Federal Solar  tax credit has been active since 2005 and it has been instrumental in expanding solar installations throughout the country. When the Solar Federal tax credit was first implemented it was at its highest at 30% and has gone down to 26% in the year 2020 and will go down again in 2021 to 20 %, then in 2022 it will be gone for residential. In 2022 there will still be a Federal Solar Tax credit for commercial solar installations. It is important to note that you must be installed before the end of that year (by Dec, 31st) to have that year’s applicable Federal Solar Tax credit to apply, so if you wait to get your solar install until 2021 then you will lose the 26% and will be at the 20% level. PacificSky Solar is happy to answer your questions in regards to the Federal Solar Tax credits and how to apply for them once you get your solar installation.
