Harness Solar Energy and Maximize Your Benefits with Solar Tax Credits
With the Inflation Reduction Act's new tax incentives, we are committed to guiding both businesses and non-profits in capitalizing on these benefits.
What Are Solar Panel Tax Credits?
Solar panel tax credits are incentives provided by the government to reduce the cost of installing solar panels. These credits can significantly lower your tax liability, making solar energy an even more attractive investment for businesses.

- Additional Incentives: Earn extra credits for projects in Low/Medium Income Areas, meeting Domestic Content Requirements, or sited in Community Energy Areas.
- Tax Credit Transferability: Newly introduced flexibility allows tax credits to be transferred between entities, ensuring maximum utilization.
- Retroactive Application: Apply tax credits retroactively for up to three years, optimizing tax benefits even if the entire credit is not utilized in the installation year.
