FOSTER CITY, Calif., Feb. 11, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Modernize.com, a leader in the home improvement and home services industry, summarizes the incentives, rebates, and financial benefits associated with installing solar panels on residential homes in 2021.
The complete homeowner resource is available: Solar incentives: Why 2021 is the best year for government rebates, credits, and exemptions.
A couple of this year's advantages include:
- 26% solar installation cost credit for systems placed in service after Dec. 31, 2019 and before Jan. 1, 2023
- 22% installation credit for solar systems placed in service after Dec. 31, 2022 and before Jan. 1, 2024
- State-specific rebates, property tax exclusions and other benefits
The Database of State Incentives for Renewables & Efficiency (DSIRE), lists 28 federal money-saving programs for solar projects.
"Consumers may seek to take advantage of solar installation tax incentives as they prepare their 2020 tax returns," advises Gregg Hicks, vice president of Modernize.com. "For those installing solar panels in 2021, expected rebates should be factored in when considering solar installation costs in order to determine the true cost."
Modernize highlights state-specific solar and renewable energy financial incentives to make consumers aware of programs that may be available to them. Examples include:
- Arizona. Homeowners can get a 25% tax credit, up to $1,000 for installing solar panels
- California. Solar energy system property tax exclusion freezes property taxes until the end of 2024
