Tax incentives on installing solar roofing systems are serious benefits to those who are considering installation of solar roofing systems. Programs and incentives may vary by state but when combined with federal programs, the cost efficiency for installing solar roofing can be significant. In many instances, state and federal programs can reduce installation costs by as much as 50% or more and local utility companies also have programs for those who use renewable energy sources such as solar.
Currently a 30% federal tax credit is available through 12/31/2016 and a 50% depreciation bonus is available to business on solar systems placed in service by 12/31/2012. In addition utility companies may even pay you if you can collect significant amounts of reusable energy through solar panel installation.
