Financial Incentives and Rebates
Even with a lack of financial incentives and rebates available, Pennsylvania builders can still market solar by offering a monthly utility break.
Statewide utility providers are required to offer net metering to all homes with a solar system up to 50 kW. The average solar system is around two kW, so unless you are building a massive solar array for your clients, you can market a monthly payoff to the owner.
“There aren’t any huge state incentives in PA. The big subsidy that we are able to take advantage of is the federal tax credit that provides a 30 percent bottom-line tax deduction,” says Fabri.
Pennsylvania builders can use the state’s net metering policy and the federal tax credit to market a monthly payback to homebuyers.
