Incentives & Rebates

California Incentives

The California state government offers cash rebates that can reduce the cost of your system by 10 to 15%. Many cities and utilities in California offer additional or alternative incentives, including LADWP, Anaheim Public Utilities, San Francisco, SMUD, Silicon Valley Power, Ukiah and Alameda Municipal Power. We keep track of these incentives for you as they change.

Federal Incentives

Federal credits and state rebates can save up to 50% on the total solar electric system.

With today’s federal tax incentives, there’s no better time to go solar. The federal energy Investment Tax Credit (ITC) allows you to take a tax credit equal to 30% of the total cost of your solar system, and due to the Energy Improvement and Extension Act of 2008, the federal ITC remains available through 2016. Our finance team will be happy to provide additional details regarding this and other federal tax benefits – including bonus depreciation – and help you develop a solar solution which provides maximum financial advantage. Moreover, when you purchase a system with REC Solar, we’ll make sure you and your tax preparer have the necessary information and documentation to claim all applicable tax benefits.
