Tax Credits

Many energy efficiency and alternative/renewable energy projects qualify for consumer  federal tax credits and tax deductions for commercial buildings.

Alternative Energy Credits

The Pennsylvania Alternative Energy Portfolio Standard (AEPS) requires that an annually increasing percentage of electricity sold to retail customers in Pennsylvania is from alternative energy sources. The program requires that retail energy suppliers utilize Alternative Energy Credits (AECs) for demonstrating compliance with the standard. An AEC is created each time a qualified alternative energy facility produces 1000 kWh of electricity. The AEC is then be sold or traded separately from the power. This makes it easy for individuals and businesses to finance and invest in clean, emission free solar power. CLICK HERE for more information and to access the AEPS Alternative Energy Credit website.
