The Solar Investment Tax Credit (ITC) is one of the most successful clean energy policies ever enacted, and has helped support a robust solar industry in Arizona and across the United States. The ITC lets solar energy system owners subtract 30 percent of the cost of installing their system from their federal taxes. This federal tax credit is a great way to get extra savings out of your solar panels, and has helped more homes and business go solar.
Despite its benefits and massive success, this important policy is currently scheduled to begin stepping down at the end of 2019. We need your voice to help urge lawmakers to keep the ITC in place! Investing in clean energy is a critical step toward a brighter future, and the ITC is a major incentive for promoting clean, renewable, solar energy in communities across the nation.
Solar is a win for the environment, for homes and businesses, for cities, for jobs, and for local economies. According to SEIA, since the ITC was enacted in 2006, the U.S. solar industry has created more than 200,000 jobs, invested $140 billion into the U.S. economy, and increased solar deployment by more than 10,000%.
If this successful and impactful policy is going to stick around, it’s going to need our help! Sign this letter to Congress to show your support, and visit this website to learn about more ways you can get involved to help spread the word.
