Solar Incentives for Homeowners
Recent changes to utility rebates and tax incentives make now a great time to explore going solar for Habitat homeowners:
- As of January 1, 2024, ALL Habitat homeowners are eligible for Xcel Energy’s Solar Rewards Program. This program provides a significant up-front incentive for installing solar panels PLUS a 10 year annual production incentive.
- The federal Inflation Reduction Act provides tax credits for solar installations at a minimum of 30% and as high as 70% of installation cost depending on location and income.
3 benefits of going solar:
- Monthly savings on utility bills
- Long-term protection from utility price increases
- Reducing CO2 emissions is good for the environment
Twin Cities Habitat invites you to explore solar through one of our trusted partners:
Solar United Neighbors (SUN)
Bobby King: (612) 293-7267
SUN provides help for homeowners who either want to explore getting solar panels installed on their homes OR join a solar co-op, where a group of neighbors join together to purchase solar energy from a "solar garden."
Andy Goke: (612) 470-1393
Apadana is a local full service solar provider, helping homeowners to maximize their solar resources and navigate financial incentives. They are a certified small, minority owned business enterprise ranked highly by solar industry organizations.
