Connecticut’s Solar Incentives Are Among The Best & Brightest

Connecticut may be a small state, but they’re poised to make a big impact in solar. Thanks to its generous rebate programs and statewide solar panel installation incentives, Connecticut is helping millions of homeowners make the transition to renewable energy.

Connecticut’s Residential Solar Investment Program

CT Green Bank has introduced a truly incredible program called the Homeowner Performance Based Incentive (HOPB) for Connecticut homeowners who choose to go solar. If you install a solar panel system that generates up to 10kW, you can qualify for a rebate of $0.54 per watt. Larger systems that generate more than 10kW qualify for a rebate of $0.40 per watt.

Property and Sales Tax Exemptions

Any homeowner who purchases a solar panel system in the state of Connecticut is exempt from paying sales tax. You’ll also be granted a property tax exemption, making the value added to your home by going solar deductible from the assessed value of your property.

The Federal Solar Tax Credit

The ITC, also known as The Federal Investment Tax Credit, is also available to Connecticut homeowners who purchase their solar panel system outright. This credit amounts to 30% of your solar system’s cost after deducting the value of your state rebates. But this one isn’t going to be around forever. By the end of 2019 ITC credits will drop from 30% to 26%. The following year, after 12/31/2020, the tax credits for installations will drop to 22%. This is one of many reasons why it makes sense to go solar now.
