Federal Solar Tax Credit (ITC)
You could save up to 26% on the installation of a new qualified solar system when you take advantage of the Federal Solar Investment Tax Credit (ITC). This program was extended through 2023 and provides a credit on your federal income tax return.
What is the Federal Solar Tax Credit (ITC)?
The Federal Solar Investment Tax Credit (ITC) is a credit the government will give you when you purchase a solar energy system for a residential or commercial property, or for utility scale properties. The credit is applied to your federal income tax return.
In 2020, Congress passed a COVID-19 relief package that included a two-year extension of the Federal Solar Investment Tax Credit (ITC). That means, the credit will stay at 26% through 2022.
Qualified homeowners and businesses may be eligible for a 26% credit on the cost of a new T & K Electric solar system through 2022. In 2023, the rate will drop to 22%.
The ITC makes it possible for residential homeowners, and commercial property owners to receive a percentage of the total installed cost of the solar system back in the form of a tax credit. These savings on solar make access to clean energy much more achievable.
How much can the federal solar tax credit save me?
Your solar savings will depend on when you install your solar system. In 2021 through 2022, the solar tax credit is equal to 26% of the cost of eligible solar equipment. In 2023 the solar tax rate credit will decrease to 22% and will be phased out completely in 2024.

I was a first time home owner with a massive re-modelling project, including significant electrical work. T & K Electric were definitely the best for the job; Tommy was very responsive, sent out professional electricians to handle the issues, and made the overall process very easy and efficient. I would definitely recommend this company for future work. I know that I will be giving them my future business as well.
T & K Electric did a great job on our kitchen upgrade. Price was very fair, the electrician was on time, professional, knowledgeable, found an excellent solution to an unconventional need, suggested an upgrade which ended up being necessary for future use, cleaned up after completion and was more than willing to share his expertise. I will definitely contact them again for any electrical work in our home and shop. Highly recommend!

Everyone I spoke to in T&K are very helpful and any question I had was answered. The salesman Raymond Buccat was very patient with me and very knowedgable...
