Get a 30%+ Federal Tax Credit with Eversun!
The Federal Solar Investment Tax Credit (ITC) provides a 30% tax credit for renewable energy qualified systems, residential or commercial. That means if you purchase our Sun-Powered eTower systems you could qualify for nearly one-third of the cost to be deducted from any taxes owed next time you file. If you don’t owe enough in taxes, you can also pass this tax credit forward for up to 10 years! Imagine the impact this can have on your business or community!
The only requirement for the solar tax credit is owning a system that is powered by solar energy. Leasing a solar-powered system does not qualify for the solar ITC. The person or organization that you’re leasing from would get the tax credit. [See Source for more info]
If you’ve been thinking about investing in lights for your business, club, school, or personal court, now is the time! For more details about the credit visit the Energy.gov website.

Claiming the solar tax credit is easy. If you discover that you qualify for the solar tax credit, fill out Form 5965 from the IRS found here. This form will certify that you are qualified to receive renewable energy credits. Then, just add your renewable energy credit information to a standard 1040 form found here, and you’re done!
