Solar panels are made of special cells (PV or photovoltaic cells) that absorb sunlight and produce an electrical current.
In order for your home to use that electrical current (known as DC or Direct Current), it must be converted into AC (or Alternating Current), which is done through micro inverters that are attached to each solar panel.
Once the energy has been converted, it runs through your electrical panel, gets distributed within your home, and can be used to power your appliances, lights, and more.
The following solar tax credits and incentives are available in Arizona. To find out if you’re eligible, we recommend contacting our team for more information and speaking with a tax professional who can help.
Arizona residents with high energy burdens can apply to the Weatherization Assistance Program (WAP) for financial help with installing a rooftop solar system (for many, this could mean a free solar system). Eligible households include those paying more than 4% of household income on energy costs (Source: Arizona Community Action Association).
The Solar Investment Tax Credit (ITC) is a federal tax credit for those who purchase solar energy systems for residential, commercial, or utility-scale properties. Through this legislation, all solar systems installed between 2022 and 2023 are eligible for a federal tax credit. If you qualify, you could reduce the cost of your system by up to 26% (Source: Energy.gov).
Arizona offers a sales tax exemption on your solar system. The exemption does not include labor, energy storage devices, or remote monitoring systems (Source: Arizona Department of Revenue).
Arizona excludes the added value of a solar panel system from a home’s value, in other words, your property taxes will not increase due to the value your solar system adds to your home (Source: Database of State Incentives for Renewables & Efficiency).
In Arizona, utility companies are required to pay you (typically in the form of bill credits) at the market rate for excess energy your system produces throughout the year (up to 125% of their electricity demand).
Depending on where you live, additional incentives and rebates may be offered by your town/city and/or by your utility company. To find out what’s available and if you’re eligible, contact your local government and utility companies or reach out to the ION team who can point you in the right direction.
