Solar PV Residential Tax Credit
The residential solar PV tax credit is being phased out, and the tax credit is actually estimated (installations completed in 2020). For installations on residential dwelling units, the tax credit is measured as 25% of the qualifying device cost or $1,600, whichever is less.
The maximum tax credit for installations completed in 2021 would be $1,200. The maximum tax credit in 2022 would be $800. The maximum tax credit in 2023 would be $400. There will be no tax credit available for installations made after December 31, 2023.
