Commercial Solar Energy Incentives Available
Significant federal, state and utility solar energy incentives exist to help you bring down the cost of a large commercial solar installation and to greatly increase the return on your solar investment. Failure to include such solar rebates and incentives into your purchasing decision can overstate the true price of any solar project that you may be exploring.
For example, the Federal Solar Investment Tax Credit (ITC) can offset up to 30% of the cost of a commercial solar project. Even for organizations that cannot directly use the ITC, it is often possible to incorporate incentives through third-party financing arrangements such as a solar Power Purchase Agreement (PPA).
At the local level, even greater energy cost savings can be found. Some states specifically offer attractive incentives for larger commercial solar installations.
Additional states that have strong solar energy incentives include:
- North Carolina
