People have continued to turn towards solar energy. Utility-scale, residential, and commercial solar installations have been increasing. Much of this is due to the necessity to build a renewable, sustainable future. After all, a social movement aimed at combating the climate crisis has come to the forefront. Solar-friendly policies and cost-efficient technology have grown as catalysts in making solar energy more accessible and affordable. Perhaps the most influential accelerator is the solar federal Investment Tax Credit. The ITC is a 26% federal tax credit. If someone invests in a solar system, they can deduct 26% of the installation’s cost from their federal taxes, and this tax credit will last until the end of 2022. The ITC is directly responsible for the drastic increase in residential and commercial solar installations because it helps consumers save money. As policies and technology improve, so do our solar capabilities. This week, we will look at two fantastic stories that help us see what solar can do and where it can go.
