Through 2019, residential installers of solar and other renewable energy can get up to a 30% tax rebate on the amount of installation. You can find out more information here:https://www.energy.gov/savings/residential-renewable-energy-tax-credit The nice thing about the tax rebate is that if the rebate is more than your tax owed this year, you can carry it over to the next year. You have to act fast because the rebate is scaled back in 2019 and 2020.
