MASSACHUSETTS SOLAR POWER INCENTIVES
The state of Massachusetts offers its residents a combination of different incentives to go solar. Learn more about the offers below!
Allows consumers with eligible renewable energy systems to receive bill credits for all power generated. Consumers must have a renewable energy system on their premises to qualify. The utility will take in consumers’ excess electricity produced during the day and then credit the consumer for that energy in the evening.
Provides homeowners a financial incentive for the excess solar energy they produce based on three things: the size of your system, who your local utility provider is, and at what block the program is currently in. As the program progresses in blocks, the financial compensation for each excess kWh of energy your system produces declines. Although the number of participants in the program is growing, you can earn extra money by adding your system components.
STATE TAX CREDIT
Once your home is checked, the design plans will go through structural approval to make sure they are aligned with state tax credit requirements.
MLP SOLAR REBATE PROGRAM
Offers a rebate to install solar PV systems in specific Municipal Light Plant (MLP) service territories. The offer consists of up to $1.20 per watt installed on systems of 25kW or less. This program has specific eligibility requirements regarding shading reduction maximum, the system’s azimuth, and connectedness to a participating MLP distribution network
