What Is the Federal Tax Credit for Solar?

The federal tax credit for solar is a tax credit that homeowners can claim on their federal income taxes for a percentage of what it costs to install a solar panel system. Installations must occur during the tax year you wish to issue the claim, and the system must be shown to generate electricity for a U.S. home. As of right now, solar panel systems installed between 2020 to 2022 qualify for a 26% credit, 22% for systems in 2023, and 30% for systems installed before 2019. Act fast! The tax credit is set to expire in 2024 unless Congress renews it.

For the average homeowner, this tax credit equates to a 22%, 26%, or 30% discount on the total cost of your home solar system.

How Can I Use Federal Tax Credit for Solar Panel Installation?

Eligibility for the federal tax credit depends on when your solar panel system was installed. If you installed (or will install) your system between January 2006 and December 2023, you meet the first tier of eligibility.

Qualifications for the Federal Tax Credit for Solar

Other factors that determine your qualification for a tax credit include:

  • The solar panel system is in your primary/secondary U.S. residence.
  • You own the solar panel system. Claims are denied for those that lease a system from a third party.
  • The credit you are seeking is for an original installation of solar equipment, i.e., the system is new and unused.

Solar Installation Expenses You Can Claim

  • Solar equipment
  • Shipping/delivery costs
  • Solar consultation fees
  • Contractor and professional installation fees
  • Tools and installation equipment purchased or rented
  • Material costs, such as wires, screws, bolts, nails, etc.
  • Permitting fees

After installation, maximize your solar panel investment with regular solar panel maintenance. Tenco Solar delivers solar panel maintenance to property owners throughout Southern California, so you can have peace of mind that you are using your solar panels correctly and efficiently.
