How are renewable energy incentives assessed?

The value of renewable energy incentives including Federal and State investment and/or production tax credits, equipment depreciation, low interest loans and electric utility based rebates should be discussed with your tax specialist prior to the purchase of any equipment.  Since everyone’s situation is different, the performance of a cash flow analysis should be completed as a part of the project’s financial planning and an integral part of the purchase. It is advisable that you do not rely solely on the equipment supplier/contractor to determine the value of the available incentives.
