Take Advantage of the Illinois Solar Tax Credit

There’s never been a better time to think about making the move to solar in Illinois. The state and federal government have created outstanding to make the shift to solar power. If you’re looking for an Illinois solar tax credit, you can take advantage of programs like the Illinois Shines Solar Renewable Energy Credit (SREC) and the federal solar tax credit to get money back on your investment. If you’re a homeowner or business owner in Illinois, it’s to your advantage to switch to solar power and call The Sun Collectors.

Why go solar?

Illinois is one of the few states in the country that pays consumers who use renewable energy. In 2021, the governor signed the Climate and Equitable Jobs Act, which helps cover some of the costs of a new rooftop solar photovoltaic (PV) system. Meanwhile, the federal solar tax credit provides a significant tax credit for homeowners: 26 percent for systems installed through December 31, 2022, and 22 percent for systems installed in 2023. As Illinois pushes toward becoming a 100 percent renewable energy state by 2050, homeowners like you can help the state reach that goal.

If you’re unsure about the advantages of the Illinois solar tax credit, consider the following benefits. Research shows homes with solar energy solutions increases the value of a home. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, that increase is, on average, $15,000. In addition, EnergySage reports solar panels may reduce, or even eliminate, power bills altogether. Finally, homeowners can significantly reduce the costs of installation with the help of these incentive programs. You can offset your carbon footprint while reducing your home’s costs thanks to the power of the sun.
