Federal Solar Lighting Tax Incentives

Federal tax incentives are available on solar LED lighting systems offered by Spark Lighting.

What types of solar electric systems qualify for the 30% Federal Tax Credit?

  • ANY complete solar power package, for your business.

What determines eligibility for the Federal Tax Credit?

    • If the federal tax credit exceeds your tax liability, the excess amount may be carried forward to the succeeding taxable year.
    • There is no ceiling on the tax credit.
    • Applies to equipment AND installation costs.
    • Commercial systems have similar guidelines as residential systems but use IRS Tax Form 3468.

    Every individual’s tax situation is different. Please consult a tax professional to make sure your situation is applicable.

When is the Federal Tax Credit in Effect?

  • In December 2015, the Consolidated Appropriations Act extended the 30% credit for residential solar to the end of 2019. It then steps down over two years and expires completely at the end of 2021.
    • 30% for systems placed in service by 12/31/2019
    • 26% for systems placed in service after 12/31/2019 and before 01/01/2021
    • 22% for systems placed in service after 12/31/2020 and before 01/01/2022
    • There is no maximum credit for systems placed in service after 2008.
    • Systems must be placed in service on or after January 1, 2006, and on or before December 31, 2021.
