Wyoming Solar Power

Though traditionally considered a red state in comparison to the rest of the countries green efforts, Wyoming is definitely taking steps in the right direction, which is an encouragement for anyone wanting to install a solar energy system.

For example, under President Obama’s We Can’t Wait strategy, solar and wind energy projects in states like Wyoming will be expedited. This push will increase solar-based jobs and create infrastructures that will produce thousands of megawatts of clean energy each year.

State Tax Incentives

While installing a solar energy system in Wyoming can be a little more costly than the rest of the country, the state does look out financially for those taking the initiative to go green with a handful of financial incentives.

For starters, anyone (home or business owners) who installs a solar power system is exempt from paying any sales tax on the equipment they purchase that will generate clean, solar-based energy. With a state sales tax ranging from 4% to 6%, this adds up to a significant chunk of cash right off the bat.

In addition, home owners with solar panels WY are eligible for a rebate program where they can receive $2,000 back for each installed kW DC, or each installed ton on geothermal heat pumps. Residents can receive a maximum of a $10,000 in rebates or 50% repayment of the total project cost.

And finally, Wyoming offers a handful of net metering and utility company-sponsored rebate programs where residents and small businesses can cash in on the abundance of clean energy they produce by selling it back into the grid. The utility providers are required to produce a certain amount of renewable resource based electricity each year therefore they encourage home and business owners to meet their goals.

Federal Tax Incentives

Along with what the state offers, people who buy solar panels Wyoming and clean energy systems can also depend on the federal government to help them out with savings. Thanks to the 2005 Energy Policy Act, those who install home solar panels Wyoming are eligible for a 30% tax credit of the total cost of the system and its installation.

Furthermore, if the credit amount is greater than what is owed to the government that year, the remaining amount can be rolled over and deducted from the next year’s taxes. All you need to do is fill out and file IRS form 5695 along with the traditional 1040 for the credit to apply.

Frequently Asked Questions

When making any modifications to the home, questions always arise. In order to discern whether adding solar panels is a good idea for a given home, having answers to the most frequently asked questions can help. These answers can not only help a homeowner decide whether or not to install solar panels on their home, but they may also help to alleviate some fears and/or concerns that homeowners have about solar power.

Will solar panels benefit my home if I do not have constant access to the sun?

It is a myth that only sunny places like California and Hawaii can benefit from the installation of solar panels. While solar panels do generate more power in areas that have more access to the sun, there are solar panels that are capable of capitalizing on diffused solar rays. These are the kind of solar rays that fall on overcast days.

What incentives are available to me?

There are many incentives in place to help convince homeowners to install solar panels. For example there are tax credits at both the state and federal levels. While the tax credit value varies by state, to the credit ranges to upwards of 25% on installation up to $1,000. Furthermore, most solar power devices are sales tax exempt. The federal tax credit is 30% on installation with no limit. For more information about tax incentives in your state, call 800-294-2397 to speak with a solar consultant.

What is the difference between on the grid and off the grid?

On the grid refers to one still being attached to the electric grid and essentially creates a solar/electric hybrid system. Off the grid refers to relying solely on solar power as the home is completely disconnected from any electric grid.

While solar panels may be expensive to install, the long-term savings (both personally and as a member of society) really outweigh the upfront costs. Moreover, the tax breaks available (through 2016) can also help to recoup some of the costs.

Adding solar panels to your home can benefit you in many ways—including tax credits and a decrease in your electric bill. For more information, please complete the online form or call 800-294-2397.
