  • I have an array of 8 US built solar panels with individual inverters. I have received the tax rebates for this array. If I add more panels can I receive an additional tax rebate on the new panels?

  • No you will not. The law changed this session and went in to effect 7/1/2013.

  • Must you have to pay someone to do this when I know more than any installer does? I never got no tax rebate, but plan on making a house next year completely off grid to be powered with solar and wind, Having a generator as a backup. . Installers could not do a build as they are not carpenters. I will be doing this myself. All other things will fall in line such as UL listed equipment, etc. Would I still qualify or must I pay someone to come watch me work?
