Solar Investment Tax Credit

Florida Solar Investment Tax Credit (ITC)

What is the Florida Solar Tax Credit?

The solar Investment Tax Credit (ITC) is one of the most important federal policy mechanisms to support the growth of solar energy in the United States.

Since the ITC was enacted in 2006, the U.S. solar industry has grown by more than 10,000% - creating hundreds of thousands of jobs and investing billions of dollars in the U.S. economy in the process.

In 2015, SEIA successfully advocated for a multi-year extension of the credit, which has provided critical stability for businesses and investors.

How Much Money Will the FL Tax Credit Save You?

Despite the overwhelming success and popularity of the ITC, the value of the credit has, unfortunately, been decreasing since 2019. Thankfully the current rate of 26% was extended at least an additional year due to covid.

While it is often mis-used (and mis-represented by dishonest solar companies) as a sales tactic, the truth remains, the longer you wait to invest in solar, the more it will cost you.

Regardless of where you are in Central Florida - Brevard, Citrus, Flagler, Hardee, Hernando, Hillsborough, Indian River, Lake, Manatee, Marion, Orange, Osceola, Pasco, Pinellas, Polk, Seminole, Sumter, and Volusia or more specifically live in Tampa, Orlando, St Pete, Clearwater, Inverness, Bradenton, Sarasota and surrounding areas, we are a trusted, established, family-owned, Tampa solar company that personally honors our warranties (unlike most companies who sub it out) and offers top-quality solar products and excellent service.
