The Solar Investment Tax Credit (“ITC”) is a 30 percent federal tax credit for solar systems on residential and commercial properties. The company or partnership that owns the solar systems can take the credit or allocate it or pass it through to their investor partners. A federal tax credit is a dollar-for-dollar reduction in federal income taxes. The 30% ITC is calculated based upon the appraised “fair market value” of the solar property. Since the solar ITC started in 2006, SEIA* estimates that $72 billion has been invested in solar projects nationwide and 170,000 jobs have been created.

*SEIA is a national trade association in the U.S. that  represents organizations that promote, manufacture, install and support solar energy development.
