Federal Tax Credit (FTC)

FTC is also known as the investment solar tax credit, that gives you a rebate of 30% on the cost of the installation of a solar energy system in the form of a tax credit.

The tax is available for anyone who installs or upgrades the solar energy system and can be claimed on your annual tax return. If you don’t have enough tax liability to utilize 30% of the tax credit, then the remaining credit will rollover to next year’s tax returns.

Those who choose to finance their solar energy system will get the FTC on the complete loan amount. But if homeowners go for a solar lease, they won’t be able to get this incentive.

 

Virginia Net Metering

It is a billing policy that enables homeowners to save money on their electricity consumption. Solar energy doesn’t produce electricity in the evenings, and a lower amount is produced on cloudy days and in the winter. You can import electricity from the grid, when your solar energy system is producing less than your consumption. Electricity can be exported back to the grid, when it is producing more than your needs. In this case, the utility gives you power credit, which you can utilize later or even roll over to the next month. However, there are very few utilities that don’t offer net metering. Dominion Energy customers with the solar energy system between 15 kW and 25 kW may have to pay standard transmission and distribution charges.

 

Renewable Energy System Property Tax Exemption

Other than saving on your electricity bills, the solar energy system increases your home value, but you don’t have to pay the extra tax for the higher home value. This is because of the renewable energy system property tax exemption, so that the homeowners don’t have to pay extra taxes as a result of the increased value of their homes after installing solar energy systems.

 

Solar Renewable Energy Certificates (SREC)

This program grants you one SREC for each 1000 kWh your system will produce. These SRECs are then traded on SRECs trading websites. An account is created on the trading website, which is integrated with your bank account. The amount will be transferred directly to the linked bank account.
