the lower number (a) or (b) x $0.45 per watt = Rebate Amount (max is $3,000)

(a) 15 x 371.4 = 5,571 Watts

5,571 Watts x $0.45/Watt = $2,506.95

Just How Good Is This Solar Tax Credit?
Damn good. And fortunately, thanks to the Inflation Reduction Act of 2022, the incentive tax credit will remain 30% until 2032. The push for homeowners to go solar has never been greater. Please consult a financial advisor to determine if you are eligible for the tax credit.
The Investment Tax Credit (ITC) is calculated by multiplying the applicable tax credit percentage (30% until 2032) by the “tax basis,” which is the amount invested in eligible property. Eligible property includes the following:
• Solar PV panels, inverters, racking, balance-of-system equipment, and sales and use taxes on the equipment
• Installation costs and indirect costs
• Step-up transformers, circuit breakers, and surge arrestors
• Energy storage devices (if charged by a renewable energy system more than 75% of the time)
There are no Energy Star Certified solar panels. The certification on the tax form is regarding other rebated sustainability improvements.
