You’ve probably already heard plenty about the 26% Federal Solar Tax Credit. With it, you can get 26% of the total cost of your solar panels back in tax credits. And if you happen to live in South Carolina, there’s yet another big incentive available to you- the South Carolina Tax Credit. With both of these programs available, you could receive 51% of the total cost of your solar panels back in tax credits.
The South Carolina Tax Credit is available for those who want to install a renewable energy system- including solar panel systems. How much is the credit amount, you may be asking? 25% of the total cost of your solar panels. That means that you get a 25% discount when you decide to purchase solar panels using the South Carolina Tax Credit. So if your solar panels cost you $12,000, you’d get $3,000 back in tax credits. That lowers your cost to just $9,000.
The South Carolina Tax Credit is a fantastic help for people who want to go green with solar energy. And the best part is that you can use the South Carolina Tax Credit in conjunction with the 26% Federal Solar Tax Credit. With both of these incentives, you get 51% off of the cost of your solar panels in the form of a tax credit. If we look at the example cost of $12,000 again, this means that with both of these incentives, you’ll only be paying $6,120.
