With many homes across the country transitioning away from a fossil-fueled electricity grid, and toward a clean energy economy, residential solar is becoming a feasible, affordable, and smart option for homeowners. Additionally, solar energy has become a necessity due to emission-reduction targets that must be met in the near future. For these reasons, residential solar systems are taking off at a remarkable rate.
The major tax credit associated with residential solar panels is the federal investment tax credit (ITC), which is also known as the solar tax credit. The ITC has been giving a tax credit equal to 30% of the total cost of the system, when purchased. According to the Solar ITC schedule, the federal investment tax credit would be reduced to 26% in the year 2020 and 22% in 2021. With 2021 being the last year to claim federal tax credit, millions of American households are choosing to invest their money in solar systems.
