Tell Your Senator to Support the Solar Investment Tax Credit!

It takes about minute to send an email to your Senators to tell them to extend the solar Investment Tax Credit (ITC). The tax credit for solar investment is set to shrink after 2016 and extending the credit can help sustain the growth in solar energy.

The ITC is one of the most important federal policy mechanisms to support the deployment of solar energy in the United States. It is a 30 percent federal tax credit that covers solar systems for both residential and commercial properties. Homeowners apply the credit to their income taxes for the year their systems were installed.
