As one of the sunniest states in the U.S., Arizona has seen some of the most impressive growth in solar installations in the country. You’ve probably heard, “When life gives you lemons, make lemonade.” What about: “When life gives you a beautiful desert, make solar energy.” It’s easy with these Arizona solar programs.
The best way to compare your solar options and save money at the same time is by registering on the EnergySage Marketplace. When you compare quotes for solar panels on EnergySage's competitive solar marketplace, you can expect to see prices up to 20% lower than working with a single solar company.
The top-rated Arizona solar tax credit and state incentives
There are several Arizona solar tax credits and exemptions that can help you go solar:
Residential Arizona solar tax credit
The Residential Arizona Solar Tax Credit reimburses you 25 percent of the cost of your solar panels, up to $1,000, right off of your personal income tax in the year you install the system.
Equipment and property tax exemptions
Thanks to the Solar Equipment Sales Tax Exemption, you are free from the burden of any Arizona solar tax. Therefore, you aren’t required to pay any sales tax on the purchase of your solar system. Similarly, the Energy Equipment Property Tax Exemption means you won’t have to pay any additional property taxes on the value you are adding to your home by investing in solar panels.
The federal solar tax credit
Don’t forget about federal solar incentives! With the Investment Tax Credit (ITC), you can reduce the cost of your PV solar energy system by 26 percent. Keep in mind that the ITC applies only to those who buy their PV system outright (either with a cash purchase or solar loan), and that you must have enough income for the tax credit be meaningful.
