How do I know if I am eligible for the Federal Residential Solar Tax Credit?

Written by U.S.SolarEnergy

You might be eligible for this tax credit if you meet all of the following criteria:

• Your solar PV system was installed between January 1, 2006, and December 31, 2023.
• The solar PV system is located at your primary or secondary residence in the United States.
• You own the solar PV system (i.e., you purchased it with cash or through financing but you are neither leasing nor are in an arrangement to purchase electricity generated by a system you do not own).
• The solar PV system is new or being used for the first time. The credit can only be claimed on the “original installation” of the solar equipment.
