What's The Federal 'ITC'?
3 min read
Not only does the state of Illinois want to help you go solar –the federal government does, too.
In addition to the policies mentioned above, you can reduce the cost of your solar energy system by 26 percent with the federal Investment Tax Credit (ITC). Keep in mind that the ITC applies only to those who buy their system with a cash purchase or solar loan, and that you must have enough income for the tax credit to be relevant (though of course the credit can be split over multiple years).
