Wisconsin Is Getting Paid To Go Solar

Wisconsin is one of the top states in the country when it comes to solar energy incentives. Wisconsin has several opportunities for a variety of businesses to upgrade to self-generated, clean and renewable solar electricity. Not only does Wisconsin offer tax exempt opportunities for the solar equipment, the state also considers any added property value due to solar installation tax exempt as well.

Focus on Energypartnering with Wisconsin utilities, offers businesses a credit of up to $4,000 for a solar energy installation. To find out if you qualify for this credit, contact your solar developer to start the application process today.

Wisconsin offers Net Metering, with Xcel Energy offering the top program in the state. Net metering allows customers to use the energy the produce and sell the unused energy they produced back to the utilities company for credits. Those credits in turn cover the cost of energy consumed from the utilities company.

Wisconsin ensures that you will have access to your power source which is the sun. The state supports the Wisconsin Solar Access Rights which ensures that your solar panels cannot be blocked by its main resource; the sun. This also protects anyone in a Home Owners Association (HOA) from restricting you from going solar.

Wisconsin offers a generous tax break when purchasing solar panels and equipment. Badger state residents, both commercial and residential, can rely on all of the solar equipment purchased being tax exempt up to 6 percent. Wisconsin residents can also rest easy about property taxes rising because of the added value solar installations can have on property value. Wisconsin allows residents to be exempt from additional property taxes caused by the installation of solar energy units.

Wisconsin is Paying for Businesses to go Solar

Combine that with the Federal Investment Tax Credit, which allows a dollar for dollar tax credit against any federal tax liability of the total system cost, and solar has a faster and larger return on investment than you think.
