  • State Incentives

    Many states offer incentives for solar and other renewables, including rebates, grants, tax credits, RECs, or other incentives. These incentives are typically based on the projected system capacity or energy production from qualified renewable generation systems. In some markets they take the form of rebates or a lump sum value for qualified system types. There are several resources available that catalog these incentives by state and by type. These are a good place to start. Otherwise, contact your state’s Energy Office or Dept. of Economic Opportunity to learn more about what is available for your project.
