Wisconsin solar rebates and incentives

Wisconsin’s solar incentives put solar power within reach

Wisconsin might be America’s Dairy Land, but it produces more than just cheese – more Wisconsinites than ever are generating electricity for their homes with solar panels. Whether you live in Green Bay or Milwaukee, you can save thousands on your electricity bill with solar thanks to some of the best incentives in the country.

Wisconsin solar rebates are some of the best in the country

For homeowners in the Badger State, there’s never been a better time to start exploring all of the solar options available. The cost of going solar in Wisconsin is lower than ever thanks to falling these great Wisconsin solar rebates:

Focus on Energy renewable rewards

If you’re installing a solar energy system on your home in Wisconsin, you can get a rebate on the cost of your solar equipment from Focus on Energy. For every kilowatt (kW) of solar power you install on your property (up to 4 kW), you’re eligible for a $600 rebate. That translates to $2,400 cash back in your pocket in addition to the major solar savings you’ll see on your electric bill.

Solar tax incentives

Solar is a worthwhile investment, but knowing where you can reduce your costs is important to improving your rate of return. For residents of the Badger State, there are multiple tax incentives to help you maximize your savings: the sales tax incentive, which exempts you from paying sales tax on your solar equipment, and the property tax incentive, which exempts you from paying property taxes on any additional value solar adds to your home. Small savings can add up!

Wisconsin net metering

When you install a solar energy system, you don’t need to include a battery to be certain that you’ll have electricity when you need it. Thanks to net metering in Wisconsin, you can send your extra solar energy back to the grid in exchange for credits on your utility bill. When you need more electricity than your panels are generating, those credits can make up the difference for you.

Solar access rights

To be sure that you’re getting maximum value from your solar panels, you have to have access to their power source: the sun! Wisconsin solar access rights grant homeowners the right to have unrestricted access to the sun, so when you install solar panels, you can rest assured that your neighbors won’t be able to do anything that obstruct your source of solar energy. Plus, if you live in an area with a homeowners’ association, your HOA can’t stop you from going solar.
