Delaware Solar Rebates and Incentives
With Solar Community, You Save the Most on Your Solar System!
Now, more than ever before, going solar has been made both cost-effective and simple for homeowners. Cost-effectiveness is largely assisted by Government-initiated residential solar rebates and incentives, which are in place on a Federal, State and Local level. Simplicity is achieved with Solar Community, as we handle the entire paperwork process for you. By thoroughly researching and matching cost-cutting solar rebates and incentives on a case-by-case basis, we will work hard to ensure the lowest system cost possible for each individual customer. With Solar Community helming the whole procedure, it couldnâ€™t be easier for you!
Federal: Save With a Tax Credit
The same U.S. Federal Credit applies to every new system installation at a flat 30% of the full system price after installation, with no upper limit. Solar Community will provide you with the document necessary to add to your tax forms. The discount comes for you as a tax credit. All applicable photovoltaic systems must provide electricity for the residence and must meet applicable fire and electrical code requirements.
