What Is the Federal Tax Credit for Solar?

The Federal Tax Credit (ITC) currently covers 30% of your system cost. The Federal Tax Credit was enacted by the federal government in 2006 and has been adjusted several times.

  • The most recent update came in August 2022 with the passing of the Inflation Reduction Act
  • This increased the credit to 30% through 2032
  • It extended the the Federal Tax Credit all the way through 2034, with a stepped-down rate the last two years

We’ve written more about the Federal Tax Credit (ITC) in a blog post on this site.

ILLINOIS Solar Incentives

How do SRECs work?

SRECs are Solar Renewable Energy Credits. With programs in only a handful of states, the Solar Renewable Energy Credit program was created to encourage renewable energy in Illinois. You get financial credit for producing clean energy. This credit helps cover the cost of your solar installation.

The IL program, called the IL Adjustable Block Program (also known as Illinois Shines), is administered by the Illinois Power Agency. The IL Adjustable Block Program will provide an amount to you based on the projected amount of energy your solar system is estimated to produce for 15 years.

The amount of money you are able to receive is based off of the amount of Solar Renewable Energy Credits (SRECs) your system will produce and the current price per SREC that is available for your system size at the time of your application being submitted to the state for review.

Since this program is always changing, the best way to determine your savings with SRECs is to request a free solar quote & consultation from Iconic Energy. We’ll answer all your questions.
