State Incentives

 Here are the incentives provided by the state of New Jersey under the Clean Energy Act.

 Solar Renewable Energy Credits

Solar Renewable Energy Credits (SRECs) are credits you earn for producing clean energy. Here’s how it works.

Every 1,000 kWh of energy produced by your solar energy system earns you one SREC. Then, you essentially sell these credits back to your utility company.

Homeowners have been known to make around $300 for each SREC they earn. You could earn thousands of dollars in these tax credits every year.

And, by enrolling in this program, you’ll receive these benefits for a full ten years. 

Tick Tock

Don’t wait any longer, though, if you want to enroll in these benefits. This is a limited time offer.

According to the New Jersey Clean Energy Act, the program will expire as soon as solar power accounts for 5.1% of the state’s total energy production. So far, the state’s percentage of electricity from solar power is already up to 4.45%.

The goal of 5.1% may be reached very soon. Even if it isn’t, the program will end on June 1, 2021, regardless. 

However, those who enroll now will still receive the full ten years of benefits.

State-Sponsored Tax Incentives

The state of NJ also ensures you get your solar energy system tax-free. Specifically, you pay no sales tax on the purchase of your system and are exempt from property taxes on your solarized home.

Federal Incentives

In addition to these, there are federal solar energy incentives to reap as well, such as the ability for business to depreciate the asset.  This can add another 20 to 30% in tax savings depending on their your bracket and your tax liability.  With the current tax law, they are able to depreciate 100% of the asset in one year


Percentage Off Solar Energy Systems

There’s still time to earn a tax credit on the total price of your system. Until now, the tax credit has been 30%. Unfortunately, as of December 31, 2019, it has dropped to 26%.
 The good news is, you still have until the end of 2020 to take advantage of the 26% rebate. Then, it drops to 22% before it expires completely at the end of the year 2021.
