Saving on the Cost of Solar Installation
There are multiple ways to reduce the cost of solar installation and to earn financial benefits with solar. Boston Solar is your ally from beginning to end to ensure you save every penny possible and find the right solar financing for you. Solar incentives and savings programs include:
Receive monthly incentive payments for your solar production, including solar batteries, from your utility for 10 years. Depending on the size of your solar PV system and the block you signed up for, you could receive up to $15,000 over the next ten years!
Federal Solar Tax Credit
Through the Federal Investment Tax Credit (ITC), you can reduce your federal taxes by an amount equal to 26% of your total solar or solar+battery installation costs. This incentive declines each year, and will be reduced to just 22% for 2021 before it is eliminated for residential systems in 2022.
MA State Solar Tax Credit
The state of Massachusetts also offers an additional 15% tax credit, or up to $1,000, off your state income tax liability for the year you install.
What happens to the excess renewable energy your solar energy system produces? Receive an energy credit towards your utility bill for the excess energy that gets sent back to the grid. National Grid, Eversource, and Unitil all offer net metering or if you live in a municipality, we can check if net metering is available in your area.
