The commercial solar tax credit is 30% of the “tax credit basis” that a company has invested in “eligible property” that is “placed in service during that year".  A tax credit is a dollar for dollar reduction of an entity’s Federal tax burden. 
: Not a deduction.

NOTE: The Federal Solar Energy Tax Credit program hab been extended for qualifying systems through December 31, 2016.

*While we have made great effort to describe these tax incentives accurately, we cannot provide tax advice and suggest you contact your tax professional with any question specific to your situation.


Note: A Solar Power System may qualify for accelerated depreciation tax advantages.


Net metering allows you to draw on utility power when it is needed and to sell power to the utility company when your solar electric system produces a surplus.  Net metering legislation states that the utility company must credit you at retail rates (the same rate they would have charged you).  Therefore, you will be credited for power fed back to the utility company from your solar power / photovoltaic system at the same kilowatt hour rate at the same kilowatt rate that the power company charges you.
