Act Now to Defend the ITC • Solar Electric Contractor In Seattle WA | (206) 557-4215

The ITC is scheduled to end in 2022

Did you know the 30% Investment Tax Credit (ITC) for solar homeowners is scheduled step down at the end of this year: to 26% in 2020, to 22% in 2021, and completely disappear after that? Read on to learn how you can defend the ITC.


Renewable Energy Extension Act

Last week the Renewable Energy Extension Act, a 5-year extension of the 30% Investment Tax Credit (ITC) was filed in both the US House (HR 3961) and Senate (S 2289) by Senator Catherine Cortez Masto (D-NV) and Representatives Mike Thompson (D-CA), Paul Cook (R-CA), and Brian Fitzpatrick (R-PA).

The ITC has helped grow US solar deployment by more than 10,000% since it was first passed by a Republican-led Congress in 2005, resulting in hundreds of thousands of new jobs and more than $140 billion in private investment.
