Government tax credits for solar
Federal HVAC Credit (25C) offers a tax credit of up to $300 for the solar-ready heat pump or air conditioner that’s at the heart of the SunSource system.
The federal solar credit (25D) equals 30% of the cost—with no upper limit—of the SunSource solar modules, including installation costs. It also covers 9% of the total cost of the solar-ready products. By installing a solar-ready outdoor unit (air conditioner or heat pump) and attaching at least one solar module, the solar-ready outdoor unit will qualify for both the solar and HVAC tax credits.
Consult a qualified tax professional for complete details. All federal solar tax credits are available through 2016. You can also learn more in the “Tax Credits for Energy Efficiency” section at www.energystar.gov.
