Washington State Solar Incentives
As a homeowner in Washington state, you can take advantage of several incentives and rebates to help you install a solar energy system.
30% Federal Tax Credit
The federal tax credit has been extended by the Inflation Reduction Act of 2022. Homeowners who install solar will now receive a 30% Federal Tax Credit for the year of installation. This 30% Tax Credit is highest now, slated to decrease to 22% in 2034.
100% Sales Tax Exemption
Solar installations in Washington State are exempt from sales tax from July 1, 2019, through December 31, 2029. The exemption covers labor costs for qualified businesses in Washington and covers purchases of machinery and equipment used to produce at least 1 kW of AC electricity using solar energy, but no more than 100 kW. Larger systems generating between 101 and 500 kilowatts AC are eligible for a 50% sales tax exemption beginning on January 1st, 2020, while smaller systems generating up to 100 kilowatts AC are eligible for the full sales tax exemption.
Net metering is a game-changing concept that has revolutionized the way homeowners generate and consume energy. It allows homeowners to generate their electricity and offset the electricity that they would otherwise have to purchase from the utility company.
Homeowners who use net metering can receive credits for any surplus electricity they produce. This incentive has played a major role in reducing the cost of electricity for consumers.
Benefits of Net Metering
- Reduces the annual cost of electricity for homeowners who generate their own electricity.
- Provides a dependable source of electricity even on cloudy days, as the system is connected to the utility’s grid.
- Credits the customer’s account for excess power generated by their system, which can be used during the following month(s) until the annual true-up.
- Enhances the value of net metered solar as the price of power increases.
