NOW is the time to act! State incentive trends have shown that funds are only declining. New Hampshire’s solar hot water rebate program has already been slashed once in 2011, and is scheduled to be reduced again before it is completely dry. Vermont’s funds have already reached critical levels for 2011. New funding is expected for 2012, but incentive levels may be lower. Finally, the 30% Federal tax credit program will run through 2016.
The purpose of government incentives is to encourage installation of renewable energy. As more people take advantage of these incentives, there is less money to go around, and less reason for government to incentivize installations. Installing sooner will likely get you a greater rebate.
