The Rural Energy for America Program offers assistance to agricultural producers and rural small businesses to complete a variety of projects, including installation of PV systems. Many farmers and small businesses will qualify for the REAP program, even if you're located within the city limits!
The Federal government is currently offering a 30% personal tax credit on all residential and commercial PV systems. There are no limitations on system size, and almost one-third of the cost of your system will be paid back to you when you file your taxes the following year!
Once you have decided to purchase a PV system, there are a multitude of rebate programs available to help offset the cost. These programs are offered on Federal, State, and even municipal levels. Figuring out which ones you qualify for and are currently available can be confusing, but we are here to help! Here we will describe a few of the most widely used rebate programs and provide links where you can find more information. MSA will also guide you through the process of identifying, applying for, and getting the rebates that are available for your application.
