Pennsylvania New State Hero

Pennsylvania Solar Incentives

Pennsylvania Solar Incentives Pave the Way

Solar panels are an integral part of Pennsylvania’s economic makeup. With over 400 solar businesses in the state and over 3,000 employees in the solar industry,1 clean energy not only makes the Keystone State a stronger one but helps its citizens save money. That’s why Pennsylvania wants to make it affordable to go solar and find ways for homeowners to save. Sunrun can help you save bigger, faster, and simpler. 

Pennsylvania Solar Incentives, Rebates and Tax Credits

Solar Savings Types Value of Savings
Federal Solar Tax Credit  26% of the final cost of the solar system
Pennsylvania Solar Renewable Energy Credit (SREC) Varies depending on market value

**Customer’s ability to monetize rebates, incentives and tax credits depends on several factors, including, without limitation, continued state subsidization of these policies, the applicable Sunrun product type, and whether a customer purchases or leases a solar system from Sunrun.

Solar Renewable Energy Certificates (SRECs)

Solar renewable energy credits, or SRECs, are another way that Pennsylvania helps homeowners save on solar.2 However, SRECs are only available when you purchase your system, and that can get complicated fast. That’s why Sunrun is here to make your life easier with our solar lease, BrightSave™. When you go solar with BrightSave, instead of purchasing the panels, you simply buy your electricity from Sunrun at  a rate that’s lower than what your utility charges. We’ll hold the SRECs and pass the savings onto you through that low kWh rate,. You get all the perks of going solar, without the risk of ownership.

Federal Solar Tax Credit

In addition to SRECs, solar system owners are also eligible for the federal solar tax credit if you buy your own solar system outright. The federal solar tax credit gives you a dollar-for-dollar reduction against your federal income tax. The 30% tax credit applies as long as the home solar system is installed by December 31, 2019. Starting in 2020, the value of the tax credit will step down to 26%, and then again to 22% in 2021. After 2021, the tax credit for residential solar ends.
