Incentives and Tax Rebates

There are several ways that Connecticut residents can accumulate long-term savings while offsetting the cost of their solar energy systems. Read on to see what rebates and tax credits you may qualify for.

Residential Solar Incentive Programs: There are programs for those who choose to buy their solar panel systems and for those who choose to lease.

The Expected Performance Based-Buydown (EPBB) incentive gives homeowners an upfront cost reduction when buying solar panels. The amount granted is based on the main design characteristics of the system and is paid directly to the installer on behalf of the owner.

The Performance-Based Incentive (PBI) gives individuals who choose to lease the opportunity to benefit from solar power for little upfront cost on the system. Homeowners enter into a contract with a third-party solar panel system owner, and the PBI is paid to the system owner based on its performance over a span of 6 years.

Solar Tax Credits: On top of state incentives, owners of solar power systems are also eligible for solar tax credits. Solar tax credits, also known as federal tax credits, allow solar panel system owners to deduct 26% of the cost of installation from their federal taxes.

Residential and commercial solar energy system owners can deduct 26% of the cost of installation for systems that have begun construction through 2020. Their solar tax credits then decrease as depicted by the following timetable:

  • 2020 – 26%
  • 2021 – 22%
  • After 2021 – 10% permanently

Residents of Connecticut can qualify for several state incentive programs that will boost your savings even more. If you’re still concerned about the cost of solar, ask us about our flexible solar financing options. Momentum offers customized payment plans that can include $0 upfront cost!
