Does solar make sense in Arizona

May 24, 2021 | 2min read

As one of the nation’s sunniest states, solar makes a lot of sense in Arizona. The Residential Solar and Wind Energy Systems Tax Credit offers a state tax rebate to qualifying residents on the purchase price of a solar system of up to $1,000. That’s on top of the federal tax credit for solar power*. 

Arizonians are eligible for the Federal Tax Credit

Like residents of all 50 states, Californians may be eligible for the Federal Tax Credit for solar power. The credit currently stands at 26% of the price you paid to install your solar system. But after 2022, the credit will be reduced to 22%. Consequently, homeowners who want the full 26% credit must have Permission to Operate (PTO) by December 30th, 2022. Because of possible delays in inspections and permitting of solar power, anyone who wants the full credit should plan to begin installing by September 30th, 2022, 90 days before the cutoff date.

Solar and home batteries make sense for Salt River Project customers

If you are served by SRP, you may be eligible for an incentive of up to $3,600 for purchasing and installing home batteries. The SRP offers $300 per kilowatt-hour of battery capacity, up to a maximum of $3,600. This incentive will only be given to 4,500 customers, so it makes sense to buy soon if you are thinking about adding batteries.

Update: SRP incentive is now closed until 2022 or until further notice.
