Phoenix Solar strives to provide the best solar solution to our customers. Thanks, in large part, to our knowledge and expertise with solar energy tax credits, incentives, and rebates offered across the country, we’re able to maximize the benefit of such programs and pass along lower energy prices to our customers.
Key programs include:
- Tax credits (federal & local levels)
- Performance-based incentives
- Renewable Energy Credits (REC)
- Net metering
The following links provide information for state, local, utility and federal incentives and policies that promote renewable energy and energy efficiency:
Federal Programs that Phoenix Solar is actively lobbying to make happen include:
Renewable Energy Grant Program: Offer DOE grants equal to 30 percent of the cost of solar property placed in service during 2009 and 2010, an alternative to tax credits that are not functioning as Congress intended. Also allow the grant program to support critical utility-scale projects (more than 25 MW electric and more than 10 MW thermal) in 2011 and 2012.
Federal Long-Term Power Purchase Agreements: Allow the federal government to enter in to 30-year PPA's to secure long-term, competitive rates for solar on federal buildings and land. (Current limit is 10 years.)
Subsidized Energy Financing: Repeal a penalty for subsidized financing for solar projects, allowing for businesses and individuals to qualify for the full amount of the solar tax credit.
Loan Guarantee Program: Create a new loan guarantee program to support financing of renewable energy systems. Allow 'new or significantly improved' renewable energy equipment, allowing advanced solar technology to qualify.
Manufacturing Investment Credit: Create a 30-percent investment tax credit for facilities engaged in the manufacture of renewable energy property or equipment.
