How the Federal

Tax Credit Works

With recent advancements in solar technology, home and business owners can now produce their own electricity instead of depending on utility companies. And because of the Federal Tax Credit, going solar through the end of 2020 is extremely advantageous, potentially reducing the cost of your solar panel installation by up to 26%!


A tax credit is a reduction in the amount of taxes you owe. The typical solar energy system with GSTNevada costs approximately $30,000 for a 6-kilowatt installation. For such a system, a 26% federal tax credit could reduce your taxes by $7,800—and that’s not even counting promotional offers or other credits that may be available. If you know the eligibility requirements and how to claim them, taking advantage of this credit is very easy.
