Grants and Incentives for Solar Energy Systems Located in Wisconsin
Many incentives are available to photovoltaic (PV) and solar hot water (SHW)
system owners. Receiving these benefits will improve the economic viability of
a solar energy system. There are two dominant reasons why solar systemsand
other renewable energy technologiesare supported by grants and incentives. First,
these incentives encourage corporations and consumers to invest in and purchase PV
systems. Second, they "level the playing field" between PV systems and fossil fuel
energy systems, which have many, less direct governmental subsidies.
The incentives for solar energy systems in Wisconsin include:
- Federal Tax Incentives (for commercial non-utility tax payers):

Each incentive has its own eligibility requirements, and is not available
