Solar incentives in West Virginia you need to know

West Virginia gets enough sunlight to make solar panels pay your electricity bill in full. Don’t let the upfront investments scare you — West Virginia solar incentives can cut them significantly.

Save 30% of your PV system cost with Federal Solar Tax Credit

The US government wants more people to go solar: it’s a modern and green way of getting energy. This is why the Solar Investment Tax Credit (ITC) program was developed. It allows American citizens to claim 30% of the cost of their installation as an income tax deduction. The cost here is not only solar panels but also shipping, installation expenses and more. For example, if your system overall made you spend $10,000, the government returns you $3,000. To claim the ITC, complete all the necessary forms and submit them when filing your taxes.

Sell excess electricity with net metering program

Solar laws in West Virginia make net metering programs available to customers of all utility companies, which are required to offer customer-generators the same tariffs as they do the rest of the clients. The program gives households an opportunity to send any excess electricity back to the grid instead of storing it with batteries.

When you sell your solar power to the utility, you receive credits that can be used to offset your next bills. In West Virginia, their value is equal to full retail electricity price. Your credits may be rolled over indefinitely but don’t apply for fixed costs or demand charges.
