Why Solar?

Energy is a significant cost to most businesses and farms. Solar turns that sunk cost into an investment with many benefits.

  • Significantly reduced energy costs.
  • Protection against ever-rising utility rates.
  • Increased energy independence
  • Increased property value.
  • Positive impressions with community, customers and employees.
  • Lower impact on the environmental via clean, renewable energy.

Why Now?

  • Federal Investment Tax Credit = 30% of project cost
  • Tax Deduction from Depreciation = 15% of project cost in year 1 (for 21% tax rate)
  • WI Focus on Energy Solar Incentive = Based on project size up to $50,000
  • WI Renewable Energy State Sales and Use Tax Exemption = 5% avoided cost
  • WI Renewable Energy Property Tax Exemption = solar systems are exempt from general property tax.
