Connecticut Solar Incentives

Net Metering

Net Metering is a billing mechanism which allows grid- tied solar producers to put electricity that they do not use from their solar array back into the grid. When the solar produces more power than the site needs, the utility meter spins backwards, and the account holder will have a credit against future energy use. The solar producer is then billed for their total “net” usage at the end of the month, which is the balance between the power pulled from the grid and the power put back into the grid.

Netting Tariff

Solar customers within Eversource territory in Connecticut may qualify for a REC (Renewable Energy Certificate) incentive payment in addition to their traditional Net Metering program. Within Eversource, each time a solar electric system generates 1,000 kWhrs of electricity, a REC will be issued worth $31.80 for a 20-year period. As this incentive is in addition to net metering, the REC is issued regardless of household energy usage creating additional 20-year cash flow from the initial solar investment.

Federal Solar Tax Credit (ITC)

The Solar Investment Tax Credit (ITC) is a dollar-for-dollar federal tax credit which reduces a person or business’ tax liability based on the amount they have invested in a solar energy project. The residential and commercial ITC are both worth 26% of a solar project’s cost though 2022. For example, a $10,000 solar electricity system will be eligible for a $2,600 federal tax credit. Customers that purchase or finance their system through a solar loan are eligible for this incentive.

Energy Storage Solutions

Utility customers who install battery storage within Eversource and UI territory may qualify for the Energy Storage Solutions Rebate through Connecticut Greenbank. This program features an initial upfront rebate of $200 per kWh of storage capacity installed with a cap of $7,500. For example, an 18 kWh battery would be eligible for a $3,600 upfront rebate. Residential customers enrolled in this program will also receive performance incentive payments every year based on the average power their battery contributes to the grid during critical periods. Depending on the kW rating of your storage system, you can get paid over $1,000 per year on average.

Why Home Solar is the Centerpiece of New Jersey's Green Energy Future?

Why Home Solar is the Centerpiece of New Jersey’s Green Energy Future?

New Jersey has one of the most ambitious clean energy targets in the entire country. Groundwork is being laid to transform the garden state into a 100% clean energy haven by as early as 2050. That’s no mean task to achieve, considering that 90% of the state’s energy needs are currently met by natural gas and nuclear energy, out of which natural gas contributes the lion’s share.
