Solar Thermal Systems Tax Credits
Tax Credit Information for Solar Packages
Bosch and Buderus Residential Solar Packages qualify for a 30% Tax Credit of the total cost of a solar water heating system.
Criteria: At least half of the energy generated by the "qualifying property" must come from the sun. Homeowners may only claim spending on the solar water heating system property, not the entire water heating system of the household. The credit is not available for expenses for swimming pools or hot tubs. The water must be used in the dwelling; the equipment must be "placed in service" between January 1, 2009 and December 31, 2016.
