Tax Credits

The federal government has set the goal of ensuring that 25% of our electricity comes from renewable sources by 2025. Solar will play a significant role in fulfilling this goal. 

Federal Credits

The federal government offers a renewable energy incentive of 26% of the cost of a system as a tax credit. SunBug designs systems that are in compliance with all federal reporting regulations in order to take complete advantage of that tax incentive.

State Credits

In Massachusetts, the state offers a tax credit worth 15% of the system cost, capped at $1,000. 

Solar and Home Value

Department of Energy research shows that buyers pay more for homes with rooftop solar panels when the system is owned by the homeowner rather than leased though a Leasing or Residential PPA company. The Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory study found that buyers were willing to pay a premium of about four additional dollars per watt for a home with the average-size solar photovoltaic system.
