Solar Tax Credits Make Now The Time To Buy

In late 2014, Congress passed and President Obama signed an "omnibus spending bill" that extends the solar investment tax credit (ITC) for five more years through 2021. With this tax credit, the solar industry is sure to be on firm footing for many more years.

Context and Implications

One industry leader commented that this bill reaffirms America's commitment to clean energy, and could spur up to $125 billion in new private-sector solar investment. This represents a continuation in the exponential growth of the industry in recent years.

This news also comes on the heels of the recent conference on climate change in Paris, which expressed a global goal to limit temperature increases to two degrees Celsius until the end of the century; reducing dependence on fossil fuels is a key step to achieving that goal. This tax credit is the first step America has taken to work towards reducing its carbon emissions.

"The multiple-year extension of the Investment Tax Credit is good for your wallet, job creation and the environment," says Bill Finch, founder of Alternative Energy, Inc. "The 30% tax credit applies to residential and commercial solar installation AND portable solar generators used for home and business. Call us at 1-484-593-4262. We'll explain how the tax credit works and even help you with the paperwork."

So all of that's great, but what does it mean for me?

A healthier bottom line. Consider the SUNRNR solar generator, the sticker price of which is $4195. With a 30% tax credit, that brings the price under $3000, a savings of over $1200! Even with shipping, that still represents a savings of 27% off the already discounted Altern-Energy price, and 31% off the manufacturer's price. With all the energy you will save from "the grid", it is a smart investment to make now given the new tax credit.

The addition of energy storage to an existing or new utility-scale PV installation allows system owners and operators the opportunity to capture additional revenues. Traditional storage plus solar applications have involved the coupling of independent storage and PV inverters at an AC bus or the use of multi-input hybrid inverters. An alternative approach - coupling energy storage to PV arrays with a DC-to-DC converter - can help maximize production and profits for existing and new utility-scale installations. DC-Coupled Utility-Scale Solar Plus Storage leads to higher round-trip efficiencies and lower cost of integration with existing PV arrays and at the same time, opens up new revenue streams not possible with traditional AC-coupled storage, including clipping recapture and low voltage harvesting, while being eligible for valuable tax incentives.
