If your company is considering rooftop solar in 2024, be sure to check if your project location is in a qualified Energy Community. It could reduce your project cost by 10%!

To help continue solar power’s historic growth in the US, the Energy Community Tax Credit Bonus
builds on the solar Investment Tax Credit (ITC) which was increased to 30% in 2022.

This Bonus will add 10% to the existing ITC, making a total credit of 40% – nearly half the cost of your solar project! For customers who are purchasing the solar system, your company can receive the 40% tax credit as soon as next year’s tax return. If you choose a Power Purchase Agreement (or PPA), you will see the 40% reflected in a lower monthly cost

Here are some comparisons of project savings with and without the Energy Community Bonus:

Payback Period (Years)
Type of Building City, State System Size (kW) 30% ITC 40% ITC
Chain Movie Theater Oakland, CA 265 3.2 2.7
Large Retail Box Store Los Angeles, CA 785 3.5 2.9
Food/Bev Manufacturing San Jose, CA 1168 3.9 3.3
