Upgrading or replacing a home air conditioning and heating system can be an expensive proposition. Tax credits and rebates offered by the federal government and the state of California for alternative energy systems can make achieving energy efficiency more affordable.
With energy prices rising, it makes sense to review your cooling and heating costs and consider a switch to alternative energy. Tax incentives and manufacturer rebates can add up to significant savings on a solar or geothermal system or even a small wind turbine for electricity generation.
For example, you may be eligible for a federal tax credit of up to 30 percent of the total cost — with no upper limit — on a solar energy system. Combined with California incentives and manufacturers’ rebates, these savings can be substantial. Also to consider: the positive environmental impact you can make by switching partially or completely to renewable energy.
Tax and incentive programs available to Sacramento-area property owners:
