Federal Tax Incentives

The US Federal Government offers a solar energy tax credit, applicable to your primary and second home, i.e. your RV or Boat! As long as there is a head and galley onboard and it is docked/parked in the United States, your vessel/RV qualifies. This tax credit, extended to December 31, 2019,  is a 30% credit on qualified expenditures to purchase and install solar panels, with no maximum limit for equipment placed in service after 2008. This credit can be retroactive – as long as the solar system was placed into service after January 1, 2006.

Effective Jan. 1, 2016 all solar tax incentives were repealed (or sunset). See details under N.C.G.S. 105-129.16A here:
