FEDERAL TAX CREDITS FOR ENERGY EFFICIENCY
Tax credits are available for qualified solar water heating and photovoltaic systems. The credits are available for systems “placed in service” from January 1, 2006 through December 31, 2016. The tax credit is for 30% of the cost of the system, up to $2,000. After December 31, 2008, this $2,000 cap will be removed for photovoltaic systems (but not solar water heaters). This credit is completely separate from the $500 home improvement credit.

Home improvement tax credits are now available for home improvements “placed in service” from
January 1, 2009 through December 31, 2009.
maximum amount that a taxpayer may claim from all of these tax credits combined is $500
over the lifetime of the tax credit (2006, 2007 & 2009).

water heaters, small wind systems and fuel cells, but not the tax credits for windows, doors,
insulation, roofs, HVAC, or non-solar water heaters. The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) guidance
