Solar Rebates and Incentives

Energy Rebates and Tax Incentives for Solar in PA.


The RESIDENTIAL Solar Tax Credit, which is among several Federal residential clean energy credits available through 2032, allows homeowners to receive 30% of their solar system's total cost back, in addition to their normal tax return, for the tax season following the solar installation. EIS constantly researches additional incentives offered through solar and the electrification of your home and vehicle.


The COMMERCIAL Solar Tax Credit (ITC), has undergone significant an fantastic changes this year with the passage of the IRA. Commercial, industrial and agricultural properties and still get the 30% ITC but now also can qualify for additional incentives which can increase the ITC to 40-60%. Yes, up to 60% tax credit on your solar array plus SREC’s and MACRS depreciation. We are seeing commercial and industrial facilities with ROI’s under 5 years and IRR’s over 20%.


FARMS and Agricultural businesses can also qualify for REAP which provides a grant up to 35% of your solar project costs. This is a competitive process but EIS has significant experience and long history of success with this program and is happy to assist you in applying for the grant.


Non-Profits are now eligible for Direct Pay of the ITC thanks to the recent passage of the IRA. The credit amounts are similar to those of commercial but since Non-Profits do not pay federal tax, a check is cut directly to the Non-profit for the 30-60% of the project cost using the Direct Pay option of the IRA.
