Federal Solar Investment Tax Credit (30%) Buy a new home solar system, and you will be eligible for the 30% federal tax credit. A tax credit is a dollar-for-dollar reduction in the amount of income tax you would otherwise owe. This credit also applies to energy storage systems that are charged by your solar system.
Solar Rewards, Xcel Energy Through Xcel Energy’s Solar*Rewards program, if you install solar on your home, the owner of the system receives monthly or annual payments for the energy the system produces in exchange for Renewable Energy Credits (RECs).
Net Metering Net metering is a program that requires your electric company to purchase excess electricity your solar panels produce. For example, your system may produce more electricity on a typical sunny day than your home consumes. When solar production exceeds usage, the utility meter will “spin” backward and provide you with credits. These credits can then be used when the solar system is not producing electricity, such as at night. In Colorado, when your solar system produces more electricity than you use, utilities are required to compensate you at the full retail value of the electricity.
Property Tax Exclusion Adding a solar energy system to your home will not increase your property taxes.
Sales Tax Exemption In Colorado, no sales tax will be added to the purchase of your solar system.
Low Income Solar Grant Program, Boulder In 2020, the city of Boulder created a home solar grant program. Income-qualified homeowners can reduce project costs after rebates, incentives, and tax credits are subtracted.
