Get tax credits for your energy-efficient purchases

Why? Some energy-efficient products may cost a bit more than less efficient alternatives, but they often pay for themselves over time through lower annual energy costs. Purchasing an energy-efficient product could make you eligible for a federal tax credit. This means your investment will start paying back much more quickly!
How it works: 
  • You can get a federal tax credit of up to 30% of the purchase price.
  • Find details on eligibility and learn how to apply for your tax credit on the ENERGY STAR® website.
  • Consult your tax advisor for more information.


Qualified renewable energy products eligible for a tax credit:

  • Solar panels (photovoltaic systems)
  • Solar water heaters
