Commercial Solar

The Right Investment For Your Business

Investing in commercial solar panels can significantly improve your financial performance by stabilizing energy costs and providing a strong return on investment. You’ll also enjoy valuable tax benefits, helping to protect your bottom line from rising energy expenses.

Solar Tax Incentives for Businesses

Installing commercial solar panels qualifies your business for tax incentives, speeding up the payback period and boosting profitability.

Investment Tax Credit

The Investment Tax Credit (ITC), also known as the federal solar tax credit, is the most popular incentive for commercial solar projects. This credit lets you reduce your federal tax liability by a percentage of your solar installation costs in the year the system is installed.

For systems that start construction before 2033, a 30% federal tax credit is available. Almost all commercial and utility-scale solar projects qualify for this credit. 

Modified Accelerated Cost Recovery System (MACRS)

MACRS allows businesses to recover their solar investment over five years through annual tax deductions. Commercial solar installations can benefit from both the ITC and MACRS depreciation. When both are applied, the depreciable basis is reduced by half the value of the 30% tax credit. MACRS is available for commercial solar projects in all 50 states.

Production Tax Credit

The Production Tax Credit (PTC) offers a per-kWh tax credit for commercial solar projects, providing an annual tax credit for the first ten years of system operation. The base credit is adjusted for inflation annually. Projects must choose between the ITC and the PTC, as they cannot use both. While utility-scale projects in sunny areas might prefer the PTC, most commercial solar projects benefit more from the ITC. The PTC is available for commercial solar projects nationwide.

Direct Pay for Non-Profits

Non-profit organizations can now benefit from solar tax incentives through a direct pay option introduced by the Inflation Reduction Act of 2022. This allows tax-exempt entities like governments, churches, and public schools to receive the full value of the solar tax credit as a direct cash payment.



The USDA Rural Energy for America Program (REAP) supports agricultural producers and rural small businesses in installing renewable energy systems. It offers grants covering up to 50% of project costs. By combining the 30% federal solar tax credit with the 50% REAP grant, you can reduce initial project costs by up to 80%. Loan financing options are also available for remaining expenses. REAP grants are available for rural commercial solar projects nationwide, covering half the setup costs for farmers and rural businesses.
