Incentives can help lower the cost of solar power systems. As a homeowner, you’re eligible to receive 30% off the total cost of your photovoltaic system from the federal government in the form of a Federal Solar Tax Credit. If you purchase a home solar system, you may end up having to wait as long as 16 months to receive the benefit of the tax credit.
