Alaska Solar Information

Alaska isn’t a bad state for solar. There’s always enough sunshine to cover your basic energy needs or at least to reduce your monthly electricity bill. The 26% Federal Solar Tax Credit as well as some local incentives will make your solar installation even more profitable.

We all know that Alaska and the sunshine don’t always get along so well. Especially when the nights draw-in, in winter.

Which makes the idea that solar power can slash the bills of Alaskan homeowners a bit of joke, right? Wrong.

Alaska may be no solar los angeles, but here in the Land of the Midnight Sun we actually get more sunshine than Germany.

And those savvy Germans have been saving sack-loads of Euros of late, thanks to their moving over to solar power in a big way.

In fact, German electricity rates have been falling for over 12 years now, in part thanks to their massive investment in rooftop solar.

Not only can turning to solar cut your utility bills. You can even say goodbye to them entirely.

Right-size your solar system, invest in the latest battery technology, and you can go independent of the power company altogether. And while the State government isn’t exactly falling over itself to help get solar PV on your roof, there are still plenty of incentives available.

In fact, if you play the solar game smartly, you can cut your initial outlay significantly. Or, if your bank balance isn’t up to it, there are several low-cost or zero-down options for homeowners.

With Alaskan electricity rates the second highest in the nation—and only likely to get higher—there’s never been a better time to lock-in low costs with solar.

Here at Solar Nation we’re happy to help you sort out the pros and cons of the deals available in Alaska.

We’ll show you everything you need to know to make the Alaskan sun your newest, best-est friend.

I am claiming the 26% Federal Tax Credit (ends 2022) i

When you install a solar system, 26% of your project expenses apply toward a credit to offset any taxes you owe that year. This federal tax credit is a major incentive to go solar, but it is going to be phased out by 2024.

To be eligible to claim this credit, you must owe federal taxes.
