Those greenies in the know have heard about Washington State’s solar incentives. If you haven’t, check out the DSIRE database for the scoop.

In short:

Above the 30% Federal Income Tax Credit which everyone gets…

Washingtonians pay no sales tax on photovoltaic (electric) solar installations. 

Washingtonians are paid, by the utility company, an incentive of $0.15-$0.54 for every kilowatt-hour their solar energy system produces. 

Plus, each kilowatt-hour you produce is one you don’t have to buy.

SO MANY PEOPLE have gone solar since these state incentives were instituted in 2006, that utility companies are slated to hit the legislative maximums and REDUCE THE INCENTIVES. 

If this happens, solar is going to get very expensive in a hurry because the Federal Income Tax Credit (30% of purchase price) is set to expire in 2016 if its not extended.

With both of these incentives gone, we could see solar prices increase dramatically next year. We can’t afford to let this happen.

If you want to keep solar a viable option for our local grid as well as keep the local solar economy vibrant, please follow this link to sign a letter to your WA legislators and let them know. 

Lets keep solar booming!
